everyone was recomending 300k to me. i wasnt going to be racing though, but wouldnt hurt to give it a try. it even says in a spot on here somewhere (link in another thread) to use 300k. and that was for a pro slash 2wd racer. i just tried some wheel bearing grease in mine and im still not happy with how loose it is. ill deffinately be modding mine in the future or just buying a sealed diff and running much heavier oil.
there's no life like a LOW LIFE!
As was mentioned to me and others on another thread, try using some "Bad Horsie" grease. This stuff is very very thick and works good in the Traxxas tranny and doesn't leak out at all.
Both rear wheels in the one Slash I have it in have pretty equal traction....Doesn't free wheel as much but does give more of an equal traction to the rear end.

Name it? Its a tough one to name.

Only thing I can think of...
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
If you are wanting a grease/fluid that will let you run just before total lock (bad horsie, 300K, etc), you wont need a sealed diff. Once you open up a package of this stuff you will look at it and understand that its not going anywhere! Your only problem is going to be actually coating the little gears inside the diff, because 300K is so thick and sticky it doesn't just flow down to the bottom... You will end up like me and have planetary gears stuck to your fingers, and be cursing it trying to get it re-assembled! (Takes patience)
I had the same issues applying the bad Horsie grease, I just heated the stuff with a mini torch to get it where it needed to be...

Put the truck through its paces today at the local construction site. The 100k diff fluid worked great. Don't think I would put 300k in it. If anything maybe 150k, but I believe the 100k would be great at the track. Unfortunately this happened.
Truck is extremely durable, can't say the same for the gears....
Cn o get exact specs on the chassis ? Like the length width and where the holes are? Thanks, I want to try to make my own!
