I seal the diff to make sure it doesnt. You might be the lucky 1 guy that isn't getting leakage, but everyone else I've talked to does have leak problems.

The first time i used mugen silicone oil instead of greae on my diffs i was affradi of getting leakeage but i didnt ... i filled the diff all to the top and put the cap on ...

Right now im not using diffs but the one i have got about 1 race and 4 practice days without leakeage, rght now i will mount front one way and rear diff and i will not rebuild the one i have ... it does not have any sign of leaking ...

Not a single special secret, just tight the screws and thats it ...

cya !

Ah Tabushi,

Give that diff a few more good days running to get it well worn in and it will leak. The parts are still to new yet.



All bevel gear diffs without a seal will leak after they start to wear in properly. This is the exact reason why I decided to try the 2 solid axles way back then and now everyone has tried it at some stage.

Somebody a couple of weeks ago published this picture of the Yokomo prototype for nitro 200mm, i cleared some noise of the pic and resized it but still its very bad quality.

Now, anyone around here have more pictures ? (and with better quality and size ?) ...

I guess we'll have to be patient. With the pre-worlds going your way, you'll be our track "spy" and get all the detailed pictures we all want to see.....but you better be prepared with the best camera available or we won't forgive you.

Default NEW CAR

This is a quote i've got from a post on Micro RC Shop forum, from the store owner!!!!???????

"I am not planning in stocking GT4 parts until they come up with the new car.

That is preocupant. I hope other shops don't start doing the same, or we're going to start having shortage of GT4 parts.
I think Yokomo should address this issue seriously with their net of retailers, so as to not create this silly panic of a new car meaning droping support to GT4's.
New car is more than wanted, but keeping GT4 supplies.

This is just getting plain stupid. Even if Yokomo do release a new Nitro Tourer there will still be a lot of people who will continue to use the GT4 for several different reasons.

But if MicroRC want to loose a lot of trade that is their problem. What will they do if Yokomo decided not to release a new tourer until the end of next year. I know what will happen. They will simply loose out on a lot of Gt4 sales and SpeedTech will get rich in the process

I doubt there will be a problem with getting GT4 parts. Yokomo still has to support the RTR.

As far as i know from the Yokomousa.com forums, Yokomo WILL continue with support to GT4 chassis in case they start selling a new nitro car.

Why ?, they have on the market one of the best (for me, THE best) RTR nitro cars so they have to support it ...
