Oil gear diff always leak even with new o rings. It is fine as long as it doesn't leak excessively. You can experiment with thicker o rings ( got it from muchmore body post o rings ). I haven't test it but I will at next rebuild.

better too much than not enough
easier to clean the extra oil than rebuild it
chris,
if you get time this week can you give me a run down with it?
better if there's no need to cleen any oil

I'm working on the "Kit Information" section of the MTX-4 Knowledge Base and I have some questions:

1. Approximately how many hours did it take you to build your car from the time you opened box to the time it was ready to race on the track?

2. How many versions of kit are there? I know there is an international version (no tires), Americas version (tires) and I think a European version (anything special about this kit?) Is the "SP" version the European version?

3. Does anybody have a picture of the kit contents before they built the car?

Thanks!
