It can be done. What we use to do is to put Serpent cleaning gum /putty into the gear diffs.

The plus part is that you get a hard diff close to solid but less hassle of fluid leakings through the diff. If you're looking something close to a solid (very hard setting), then this would be it.

DO YOU NEED TO MIX? OIL AND CLAY? OR JUST PLAIN CLAY ITSELF.

Default shock oil (front and rear)

What oil do you guys use in your shocks? The rear of my car bumps a lot on bumpy tracks. I see other racers run their car smoothly even on bumps. They say to change my oil to a harder one but did not mention the weight. I use the black stock springs for both front and rear. I hop you can help me.

I used 40 wt Trinity shock oil - front and 30wt Trinity shock oil - Rear.

This can be very subjective depend on the track condition. I suggest ask the local racer that manage to get their car smooth. Otherwise have to use experiment If the 40/30 wt still bummpy than use 40/10 !? Others? What do you say man..


Spring tension can fool us sometime even you used correct wt shock oil. So have to get good combination. Try to reduce the rear tension first and try that.

thanks for the suggestion. the thing is sometimes fast racers here tend to secret their recipe. probably selfish and afraid to get beaten someday. I'll try to ask the others too. thanks again bro.

Shock oil is too subjective. Cannot guess your track with any accuracy. Very rough guess is:

Smooth and large track - 60-70wt front and rear
Smooth and medium/small track - 50wt front and rear
Bumpy and large track - 40-50wt f/r
Bumpy and small - 30wt f/r

Try from there. Look how your car reacts over bumps. If it is getting airborne you need to use softer springs and oil together. Hard spring and soft oil does not work in some cases and does in others.

Play some and observe the car then ask back here and we can help more.

Post Putting cray in the Diff...

I use 100,000 Wt Diff oil.. The key is to warm up the oil right after you put it in the car(run the car DON'T LET IT SIT Wait for something to dry, Just clean up the over spill, an go....

But the only problem is now that the rear end is planted can you drive the breast with one ways in the front. Do you run with only the Front Sway Bay or Both FR/RR... Check out the Sway Bars:

Tip : Try using the Inner lower setting in the rear It said to offer bester Rear traction.....

I've been using Nitro Shoes, I 've found that they work really well around the 60mm dia mark, so yeah, I guess that I would be truing them down to at least 62 mm to start with, they are like 66mm (huge) from new!

Depends on what effect you want. Less foam makes for better traction in high grip circumstances. On very high grip tracks start at 58-57mm for optimal performance. You don't need to do this, but the car does handle better.
