    Can someone explain if Steve's explanation of using oil in the rear diff instead of grease is in the housing or the diff centre itself????

    The diff center, the plastic cup that is screwed to the ring gear. The diff housing is not sealed and will not hold fluid.

    Thanks turnleft, I'm going to work on diff tuning this weekend, with my lack of ability at the trigger I find I get to much wheel spin at the rears in loose conditions, centre diff is in.

    I have 10000 in my rear diff and it works great for loose conditions.

    Just a basher here but I run steve's set up. I use toe and camber guage from RPM and they work great.

    To help absorb impact on the up ramp of a jump and to also help absorb landing, as you try to land front axle first on the down ramp of a jump. Softer in the rear to allow the rear end to squat under power to give more traction to the rear wheels.

    Hi,

    Can anyone help me get a setup for my race slash 4x4.

    Its running the STRC LCG chassis and the proline protrac kit. My track is a fairly bumpy outdoors track favoring the 8 scale nitro buggies. I have Texin RX8/Pro4 4600 and Savox 1258tg servo. I have the 13mm GTR shocks whith AE springs. Its really fast but tries to swap ends all too easily even whilst powering on the straight. It jumps great though but just not stable.

    My current setup is pretty much Sleydan's as far as oils and arm mounting points go, but running 3deg toe in and 2deg neg camber at rear. Shocks mounted middle on tower and full outer at rear. At front I got 1 deg toe in and 1 deg neg camber and got my shocks middle on tower and 2nd from outside on arms. I am running Sleydan's sway bars.

    My other truck is a race prepped TLR Ten SCTE 2.0 and that thing is just way faster and more stable everywhere, but it jumps real bad.

    Please help!!

    Hi Guys,
    I have slash 4x4 and I am confused about this it has front differential oil, rear differential oil and center differential oil where did you put center differential oil? Any ideas....
    Front end:
    - outer steering link: front hole (plastic knuckles)
    - shock springs: Slash 2wd fronts or Rustler fronts work well
    - camber link: outer/ lower & inner/ upper
    - diff: 10K to 15K

    Rear end:
    - sway bar: black
    - diff: 5K to 7K

    - install center diff (50K to 100K)

    Do you have a center diff for your truck? Or only a slipper? The center diff has a diff case you can open up just like the front and rear diffs that you can put oil in.

    Hi Guys,

    we have a race and bashing track in a local wood. Do have any recommendations what is the best setuo for my Conditions ? The wood soil is anywhere between hardpacked and loose (more loose than hardpacked) but not loamy and most of the time dry. The most important thing for me is acceleration and tracking stability, everthing else does not matter.


    Thanks for your help

    I have read this entire thread and onlt one unanswered mention of GTR shocks from the current slash ultimate .
    Is there a listing of all traxxas shocks, springs and their compatability, and sizes ?
    Their shock names are confusing.

    At the shock positions, does he then mean #2 closest to the tire or closest to the chassis?

    i think is from the tire... the one chassis will give it really really high centre gravity
    Slash 4x4, P4de, Slash 2wd, almost ERBE
