Default Diff Gasket

I m just servicing my car today and found out the rear gearbox was full silicone from the diff. I unassemble the diff and found the O ring gasket was torn apart. Now I m about to install the normal paper gasket from Evo Diff, it fit very well. Hopefully it will not leak anymore. Has anybody done this before? I just don't like the O ring gasket because its a bit harder to put and aligning it to the edge of thr diff case.

So its the centre conversion from Kawahara that converts the drive ratio?

OK. Looks like i'll get that instead

Cheers

Ziggy: the 0.8 module crown gear from Kawahara will increase the top end cos the internal ratio will be about 2.7 and not 3 (with 39t crown gear0

i do have a solid axle for my 05R, try it but don't really like the feel of the car, I prefer one-way or diff.

on the other hand,.. I like the o-ring style over the paper,.. when aligned perfectly,.. it's almost impossible to leak the oil (tip: wet the o-ring w/ some of the oil during install, and it wont leak for a long time,... mine survived 4 races already w/ no oil change or top-up,... changed the ring-gear twice already, but no oil leak)

I tried both the XTM one and the Team Magic one. The Team Magic one works a lot better.

not waiting for V-One RRR?! hehe,... I'd like to know for you guys that run in JITC,... is the FW "nervous" on long sweepers?! I've only used mine on short track (Makro Bali),... might show up on GQ on May (if I'm good enough already, hehe...)

Whats the effect of removing the rear droop on the FW-05? Some say no droop = more steering!!

Cheers

More droop in the rear will allow more weight transfer to the front during braking as it allow the rear to lift further. The more weight you have in front, the more steering you will have.

I think,..

more rear droop = more off-power steering

less rear droop = less off-power steering


more front droop = less on-power steering

less front-droop = more on-power steering


correct me if I'm wrong guys

Default hardened 39 diff gears

Does anybody know if tower hobbies sells the 39t gears. All I can find are the silver ones and I thought those were the standard ones. I thought we had a link on the earlier pages, but again all I found were the silver diff gears. Am I wrong in assuming the hardened ones are black? Guide me enlightened ones!

Rc Mushroom has them. They are shown black but will be listed as steel gears. They do make the ally 39 gears though
