My problem.
When I let off throttle the car gets to fish tailing.
Center fluid to heavy?

I checked to see if I had a stuck bearing.there fine.
Yea thick center and thick rear.when u let throttle thicker oil at rear dont let the wheels spin difference.the inner wheel want spin lower but the thick oil dont let it and spin close to out wheel. So thick rear when off power push the buggy from behind in the turn.thick front pull the buggy when off power at turn.u can try thicker oil front or go thinner center and rear.for me the best its 5 5 3 or 6 5 3.at really high grip track can with thicker

Fish tail at off power u can have from thinn oil front too.cause the wheels its so free when u let the throttle and u have more entering steering.

Has anyone tried the Losi lightweight spur gear??? Curious if it fits on the center diff. Maifield mentioned he runs one in his Truggy with an AE clutch. Says its a better mesh. But i like the idea of a lightweight spur.

I have run losi gears on AE diff cases.. It's not a perfect fit, so it's up to you. Will it work, yes.

Is it needed? Not unless you're changing ratio.. Better mesh, only works for the top 5 guys.

Thinking about using the LTC gears in the rear. What would be the effect of running both the LTC internal gears and the underdrive gear set? This would be for a larger outdoor track with low traction.

the rear is useful in order to match up the anti-squat angle of the arms, further smooth out the shock movement

You are just changing the final drive of the car if you are running the under drive gears front and rear. The LTC gears are supposedly better for low traction.
