should I run 5,000 in both diffs? I was thinking I would just run 3,000 in the rear and 5,000 in the front? Is that right. Or is the oil too thin? Sorry for all the ?s but heres one more. I have the diff apart everthings apart. When I put the diff oil in should I just poar it in and the gasket will keep it sealed, or do I pour it half way or what?
Thanks Guys

Which weight oil/grease in the differential depends on track layout and track-tion.

For low-traction surface ( which I run on ), use just a dab of grease in the rear diff and heavy oil in the front ( like 50,000 - 100,000 ). This heavy of grease tends to make the differential near "lock-up" so you may as well spend the $16 on the solid axle for the front and save some mass.

There is lots of info on this thread earlier on this topic.

Well I sealed up my diff as I realized the reason why it leaked is that I didnt tighten the screws down far enough. I sealed and retightened everything so I'm waiting to see what it does soon. Gonna have to wait till the snow melts. Hmm...make have to check out this rear axle thing.

Man, you're the 10th person with perfect weather . We got 6-8 inches of snow, but it's been melting a bit already. However they said we'll get more!! S.O.A.B!!!

Here in Guatemala the weather is always around 70 degrees. People call it the country of eternal spring... perfect weather.

Anyway has anyone ever driven the HPI PROCEED?
I'm thinking of buying one to go postal on all the serpents 235's that run around here pretending to be so fast... Well if anyone has had experience with one let me know.

Whatever you end up doing, make sure that the front is stiffer then the rear. Otherwise the rear end will want to slide out.

hey guys,
I finished rebuilding the cars diffs and I realized that the guy had a one way differential in the front. Im pretty sure that this isnt the same thing as the rear spool axle but I just want to clarify. I read on here that the one way makes the car a whole different car to drive. Is this true? I have the old diff if I dont like the one way so Im pretty much set. Thanks for your help guys

It sure makes it whole new car alright. You get no front braking. You now have to really go easy on the braking otherwise you'd just spin out. I ran my R40 today and WOW what a difference the .8 module gears and LW shafts make. Don't think I actually want a new engine now. I had to blip the throttle in the basketball court shown in the picture. BTW due to the dust, I slide right into that big puddle near that basketball hoop, but I drove right out of it and it kept tickin. Just had a nice vapor trail behind it due to the water that got on the body and soaked in the foams. Also managed to accomplish burnouts like the 8th onroad in the trilordy video. SWEETNESS! The most fun I've had with the R40.

Funny how with the flash makes the background dark and without the flash shows the actual lighting. This picture is wavy, because I slipped. FRIGGIN BLACK ICE!!!
