Wrong part number... I had the same problem. The manual has a different part number than what is on the header card.

Try W5301V

Depends on the track. 100k in the front and 30k in the rear is a good starting point.

I can tell you I have 3 rear diffs. 20k,30k, and 50k.
I have two front diffs, but am going to build a third. I will have 50k,80k and 100k. I have run 120k but didn't like that. Too much like a spool at that time I tried it.

i found the same, on a medium /high grip i run a 100k front and 30k rear , and a bit lighter front will give you a little more turn in, a friend that i know through racing went overseas and spoke to shimo himself and apparently he likes to run a 30k split, hence the 20-50 kit oils.
i also have 20,30, 50 rears and 50,80,100 front really all you need.

might try running 50 in the front first as i already have 30k in the rear,

the track im running on is small and tight with alot of hairpins. never hit 2nd gear besides the straight.

one way - found the car was way too loose.. slid out every corner

spool - traction is alot better but have to slow right down into the hairpins..

hows the traction , i mean the track surface?, probably 30k will be to heavy, run 20k rear and 50 front to start, its not to bad on a number of track styles.
and start off with kit setup .
