I got my Dri Slide the weekend, and what I can say is wow. put it on the pinion, and put it on the belts, and on all the ball joints. WOW. my car is now smoother and rolls freer than it did. I will put it on the thrust bearings and I will use it on the diff. I love this stuff. it is a dry powder. VERY slick.
welcome back Chris!! My son was born on June 6 and weigh 7lbs , 8 ounces very very happy!!!

Dri Slide... It is a dry molybdenum-graphite grease. this stuff is slick, and it goes on with a liquid carrier, http://www.drislide.com/ This is GOOD stuff. I got 4 bottles, this stuff will last me a while.
Then it'll be similar to the graphite grease I've got, but with the liquid carrier.

Cheers, Mark.

How many runs did that piston have? And under what conditions?

Airtronic 94357 should be strong enough and has more than enough speed for any on road apllication.
But I use Futaba 9550 because I mount the failsave on the button of it yet the weight balance of 710 is not even left and right

so I choose S9550 which is also enough for throtal and brake.

Glad you like the Dri-Slide Baxter. I knew you would, makes everything silky smooth. Got my Mugen Super Grease last week. Going to rebuild my 710 now and use that on the diff balls and Centax thrust bearing. Can't wait to run my car again.

did you guys lube the balls on the rear ball diff with grease or did you just leave them dry because the manual doesn't say to lube them at all

Funnily enough. The rear ball diff is the only thing I have never greased or oiled on the cars I have had. Never had one fail yet. Never really thought about it but I always grease/lube everything else including the pillow balls.

If its stripped down and cleaned every time its run you shouldnt have a problem.

I did lube them a bit when I first built the car but the balls soon gather a slug of gunk all over them. For this rebuild, I'm using Krytex just to see ...

Default They lurk here ...

They lurk in here from time to time ...

Sometimes they even post something here ...

Now go see them in action ... part 1 will be up in a couple of hours. The rest coming every other day ...

Naturally, they're faster than me ... well, some of them.
