how do you lock up the front? i had experience in locking down ball diffs (from electric tc3) by removing the balls but on a gear diff, how do you do it? just asking though..

called lhs, diff oils ran out of stock. was reading the fw05 thread and found out that the popular diff oil they use is 50K rear and 10K front. will be trying that out first and if its succesful, will stick with it.

So you guys recommend thick, filthy McNasty oil in the front. Checked with Tower and AE sells a set with 100,000 and 300,000 oil in there. You think that will do it?

They also sell diff grease from Yokomo and Kyosho. If I were to use that, what kind of numbers should I be looking for?

OK, Filthy McNasty it is...

Just to be sure, is this setup going to give me plenty of on power steering but crap off power? And how willing is the rear end going to be to swap ends?

You are really going to have to try it yourself, if its not tail happy enough go thicker in rear etc. For the track im running on the recommended 100k in rear and one-way in front is really nice but that depends on traction if the 100k is enough or too much.

what do you mean nightmare? if the track has medium traction then the thicker? will stick on the conservative side as of the moment with the ones working for the fw05. ..while spenzalli is on the nasty side hey spenzalli, pls do give some feedback after you tried the nasty stuff, ill try the less nasty ones hopefully through the weekend. thanks!

Correct me if im wrong someone but yes the more track traction the thicker you want

You will find your happy setting quicker if you start out on the very thick side and work down. When I built the 100k diff I thought I would of been all over the place but once you put it in the car, put wheels on its not really that stiff after all. Also you only have the 4 gear diff so there will be even less effect from the oil so you want it thicker again!!

Good experiment maybe , build one thick and one thin put them in one way (thick front/thin rear) go for a drive then swap them over and see what effect it has on the car..

But as stated earlier, because of the small gears 100k only feels like 30k so go thick

Ok...then what are you currently using Manti...I am in the process of building a champ with the 6 gear diff...I already assembled the rear diff with Mugen 100k....and Im gonna start with the 1 way up front. Should I start with something even thicker in the back?

i sold my LD3. but i want to share my insight with peers here !

i suggest you use 100K to see if it suites your liking and to decide to go softer or thicker.
