I take the diff cup and sand it on flat surface with 400 grit sandpaper lightly, green slimed both surfaces with stock gasket and fill to PROPER level.
The gears seem to like heavier weight fluids, IMO.

That's probably a little less than a losi would weigh with the same combo. The 408 is not a heavy buggy

Thanks Frank. I just got all the TD shock spring sets so can you post or PM your setup? We used the camber link on the RC8 for the same purpose and it worked well and at times really dialed the car in.

Droop 104mm
Camber link inner middle on tower middle on hub

Hub middle position
Camber –3

I get all my stuff from Team Terribles. James is awesome at getting me TD parts.

But the green springs in my setup are losi springs.

I used a stronger spring from a pen, instead of the black spring supplied with the linkage. In addition it's probably a good idea to put some sort of rubber band or throttle return spring on your carb.

with the body being so tight on this buggy and with my engine/pipe combo i already burned a hole in it, despite using several layers of heat tape. Do you guys know if the bend is tighter on the Mugen manifolds and if it would fit? they are being advertised as compact and on the picture it looks like it might work. I'm also concerned that if the bend is too tight then the pipe will hit the tank.
This is what i have:

This is what i'm thinking about buying:

Thanks for any insight...

Absolute Hobbyz has them and the complete spring kits F/R. Only $32 for all 8 spring sets.

I heard Premier was getting a TD parts order also.
