    30K lube is fine, but you should also get some order weights so you can see what you like best. White grease is fine for the gears. How to shimmed has been explained many times before, and every diff takes a different amount of shims.

    "Do a Search" is NOT considered an appropriate response to questions on the Traxxas forums.

It's part of being a noob and I don't really like the search function either so ask your question. I am considering adding "do a search" to the swear filter so that I can give points till the "do a searchers" are banned. (It should take about 20 minutes). When they complain I can tell them I made this post and if they had only done a search, like they post all they time, they would have known not to post "do a search". Pretty compelling logic isn't it? All I have to do now is post any random thing anywhere on the board and I can give points for it! This makes me VERY happy so thanks guys! Since you have already searched, you know beyond any shadow of any doubt that if the Chicken ain't happy, ain't NOBODY happy! Do a search and read all of my posts before replying so you know what not to say.

If you just want to post "USE THE SEARCH!" - then keep it to yourself, and don't bother posting. IF you have a problem with answering the same question over and over, then maybe being a "regular" on a message board isn't for you because it is the same on any other message board I've seen.
    Hopefully these reminders will compel those who are too lazy to post something helpful to not post anything at all.

    Shim the ring gear and the pinion gear for a tighter mesh mitch316 can probably help more when he gets on he can tell you what size shims are needed and where to get them

    To shim the stock diff you will need 6mm shims kyosho 096046 ,8mm 096644 and 10mm 096647.
    I usually place a shim on the pinion and on the ring gear side. Assemble and check for play. Move side to side. Get the play out then check the pinion. Might need another shim there. Not too hard to do just keep adding shims until you get a little binding then remove one
