Thumbs up Great to see the car has got the pace!

It was good to see the pace he had with the MTX5.
It has been decidedly quite for For MTX 5 podium spots for a while.
Shame about the flame outs great caliber to chase down the field and clock the fastest lap time, good work Robert.
The brace Robert is using supports the two transmission bulkheads side to side.
I was surprised to see he was using the standard chassis, I suspect it gives a good balance of flex at the rear.

I think it is more to refill the diff since he is sealing it

Maybe two speed springs and notice the shim washer to adjust the bump stop.

Quick question. Higher diff weight = more or less traction? I seem to have too much steering with 80k oil in the rear. Should I go heavier or lighter?

• To make a gear differential LIGHTER, fill it with thinner oil.
• To make a gear differential HEAVIER, fill it with thicker oil.

EFFECTS OF FRONT GEAR DIFFERENTIAL ADJUSTMENT
Lighter Front Differential (thinner oil)
• Decreases understeer
• Decreases stability under braking and acceleration
• Increases chance of traction roll
Heavier Front Differential(thicker oil)
• Increases understeer
• Increases stability under braking and acceleration
• Reduces chance of traction roll

EFFECTS OF REAR GEAR DIFFERENTIAL ADJUSTMENT

Lighter Rear Differential (thinner oil)
• Decreases on-throttle steering
• Less acceleration if the grip is there
• Less predictable car (cars with very “loose” diffs have a tendency to understeer heavily under throttle and turn-in oversteer as soon as you lift)
• Less on-throttle oversteer (snap-oversteer)
• Less turn-in understeer
• Less stable under braking
Heavier Rear Differential (thicker oil)
• Increases on-throttle steering
• Better acceleration if the grip is there
• More predictable car (cars with very “loose” diffs have a tendency to understeer heavily under throttle and turn-in oversteer as soon as you lift)
• More on-throttle oversteer (snap-oversteer)
• More turn-in understeer
• More stable under braking

TRACTION CONSIDERATIONS:
* The higher the traction, the lighter the diff oil up front, and the heavier at the rear.
* The lesser the traction, the heavier the diff oil up front, and the lighter at the rear.

Rome...at speedworld when he spray u can use up to 80K in the rear an on regular days 60k works well...I went down as far as 30k an the car pushed like a truck...so no lower than 50k..
