Thanks.
Never fill the diffs more than 80% of the way. More than that and it will seep through. You generally want harder diff grease in front than the rear. I run a front one way/rear gear diff setup though. Rear gear diff is filled with medium oil.

If your track is large, fill them 80%. If its relatively small or medium, put maybe 40%=50% The diff oil is really tacky stuff and even at 80% full, its very stiff.

I race with guys from yokomo here in Southern Cali ie Crystal park and revelation and we all run the diffs full to the top! If you have a problem with your diff leaking you need to run a thin bead of CA around the diff halves where they meet. Make sure the diff casing is free of diff oil on the outside!

Hey! How are the Yok guys at Crystal park? Still a lot of you guys?

I haven't been there for 2 years but when I was there, 70% of the guys were running Yoks.

thanks tambokgt. i was asking about the mugen cuz its 250 at ultimatehobbies and thought that if it can match up with the yok and ntc3, then i'd get that instead, but i guess it cant. thanks for the info though.

help me out with my other question though someone.

whats the pro's and con's of both the yok gt4 and the ntc3? i heard more like the yok cuz its more durable, but lots like the ntc3 cuz is smooth, like you can push it without it on and it'll go pretty far, etc, etc. help me out someone. did anyone own both and have experience with both? which would u prefer?

I recently bought a used souped up Yok.....I'll be racing in a large fast track...that is why I went for the Yok . I'll be getting the new 2 speed assembly and the centax for the car to make it handle like my 1/8. I'm in the market for an engine though...still deciding.
If I choose between a Yok and NTC3 and race it in a large fast track......hands down I'd go for the Yok. I had lesser parts replacement than the NTC3.
