hmm....funny that this problem happens to some and not to others. I have been running mine for quite a while without leaks before I switched to one way.

I use blue silicon sealer from a auto parts store, make sure you clean any oil off of the parts you are applying it to(apply it to both sides of the gasket). You do not have to use alot of silicon just a thin coating works well.

My diffs always leaked from the O-rings that seal the outdrives. It seems like that is the norm.

Default diff

my diff didn't leak for over a year and i rebuilt it many times but recently it started leaking and then the fluid fills the bearing (not good!!) i changed the o-rings and it has been fine since.

950's are the largest I have seen so far. I have the 950's and they have no problem making 45 minute mains.

anyway fyi my 900 nimh has been proven to last for all 3 heats + 45 min. mains without recharging...

thanks devious and asw...with the worst driving that day i was very lucky to qualify in the last main...D... started 9th , b4 the first lap was done i have already lead the pack leading most of the 10 minute race, but finish 2nd after my b/shell got stuck on to the tyre when bumping side by side overtaking another car(1 minute b4 finish)....yet, still have good memories although not to my expectations...

actually the car and engine was perfect , only my b/shell choice was way off causing the uncomfortable driving in the heats ....only got a better pace in the finals after i change to a proto stratus 3.1..b4 i was using a titan blitz m6..i discover that the titan m6 was longer than the proto stratus or proto m6...if not could have been better......bye...

Hey guys, I'm hoping one of u could help me out. I have a mtx-3 and I got a really good deal on an engine, but it's a threaded shaft. I was told that mugen sells a conversion that screws into where the threaded shaft fits. Does anyone know where I could get it?
