NovaMega TP06, Novarossi 52606/52607 or the RDLogic Turbo II inline one piece pipe. Unfortunately, they are not as durable as the Shark pipe.

Shark pipes have very good bottom end. But falls a litttle flat on the higher end. Gear for lower FDR to take advantage with the low end powerband.

If you leave them dry, the diff will feel gritty after some use. If you do not grease them with good grease, it will be OK for a while but then when the grease dries up, you'll end up the same as not having grease and the diff will feel gritty after that.

When the diffs feel gritty, you need to change the newer balls if you want a smoother operating diff. Greasing the old balls will still give you a gritty diff as the balls already have flat spots on them. Anyway, the diff will still work fine, gritty or not.

Don't get me wrong... You can run the diffs dry and it'll still work. But you'll get a gritty diff after a while. Flat spots in the balls will be created and you can never get rid of it even after cleaning and greasing these balls. They need to get good sticky grease when new and will stay grittyless that way. But like I mention, the diff will work fine gritty or grit free.

I'm assuming you're using oneway front? Perhaps something is tweaked? The first thing to do is back down the EPA on the throttle. Brake just enough that the rear wheel does not lock. Check if the chassis is straight, shocks are equal length and same rebound (especially rear), rear droop is the same and if the rear sway bar is not binding in any way. What rear droop are you running? Perhaps it's too much that causes a lot of weight transfer to the front.

A harder rear diff and a limited amount of rear droop helps to make the braking more stable.

Red springs and yellow stock ones are the ones used mostly. Perhaps maybe white but that is when traction is really lacking. Tires? 37, 40 and 42 shores front and rear should be about right. Depending on your setup, softer front and harder rear would help make the front and rear tire wear the same.

The AE stealth grease is good but only for a short run. The grease wears off fast and you'll have a gritty diff. With the Mugen Super Grease, it is very sticky and sticks to the balls for what seems like eternity. A very thin layer would suffice.

I have used both greases and D is absolutely correct - the AE stealth grease is too thin - Super Grease rules!

Default Winternats 2004

A sweet surprise when I got home yesterday, Ray Wood's DVD was waiting for me The DVD is worth every penny!!! Great job by Ray once more and the action is thrilling. It's amazing to watch Mike Swauger in the 1:10th - everything seemed to go wrong for him, but he kept his cool and got the job done. The 1:8th was carnage central! Fukuda looked great in the 1:8th, but Mike looked better in the 1:10th.

Go out and get your copy

Cheers, Mark.

Use the FORCE / RING !

Perhaps you could do some more of the breaking-in of the engine. Curious to know the performance. Crashed_1 got his already.
