Hey guys! I finally received my kit after a month of waiting

Anyway,what is the stock set-up in regards to the shock oil? And is it just me or does the kit not come with any shock oil?

Oh so that's what the bottle is for

There was no indication in the manual to use that one so I had no idea what to do with it

Anyway,at the front do u guys prefer to use One-way or Spool? And is the stock rear diff oil okay to start with? Or is it too thin?

I almost always use 30,000 rear diff and 50,000 once in a while.....

I also like using the spool over the oneway especially since my local track changed to a more technical infield... You might also consider a front diff, I use a 50/50 mix of 500,000 and 100,000 for the front diff....

It puts the power down a little better.... It also stays a little more consistent in longer mains or hot weather....

Hey guys,I have a question for u guys. What are the steps u use to remove n reassemble the front axle (be it spool,diff,or one way) from n into the car?

Here's my steps :

1) Remove both the upper arm holder.
2) Remove the upper bulkhead with the shocktower (disconnected the schocks beforehand)
3) Remove the upper deck!

Now,I'm new with the car,but surely this isn't how it's meant to be? It took me nearly 5 minutes just to take out the spool! I didn't think I'd need to remove the upper deck,but the belt was so tight on the spool that I had to remove the upper deck n then it was possible to free the spool from the belt.

And putting it on was the same! I tried with the upper deck on,but it seems that the belt was so tight it would've taken massive amount of force to force it in. So again I had to remove the upper deck,then align the spool's pulley with the belt,then pull it towards the bulkhead and consequently tightening the belt tension.

So is this how everyone does it? Or am I just doing something wrong or am missing something?

When dealing with the spool, if you pull the pins out like you were making it a one-way, you can pull the diff cups out, and then pull the spool out of the top. When you're dealing with the front diff, you have to pull the upper deck up to get it in, obviously, because it's much bigger. I usually just take out the screws in the front of the deck, 4 I think, and that give you just enough slack to get the diff in and out. And, since you can't pull the diff cups out of the diff, it does require more disassembly of the front-end.

Re- removing front axle, I undo the 4 screws out of the front idler axle housing and the front battery tray screw, gives you the slack on the belt to get it out.

Also I've found you just need to undo the front 2 top deck screws and the steering post screw, and loosen the back 2 to get the axle/diff out. You don't need to completely remove the top deck.
