    I love doing r&d

    I'm really not sure if anybody cares or has done this or even really thinks about doing or what it will do if they did do it. I'm talking about using the center fluid filled differential on my Traxxas 4 x 4/with the castle creation 2400 KVmotor and mama Max Pro short course ESC. Now Traxxas recommends not to run this with anything higher than a cell lipo and on dirt not hard pavement so what I'm going to do is run it on 3 and 4 cell on pavement I really want to get a feel for how well that 100 K did fluid works and how hot it will get Should have pictures video and conclusion posted hopefully on Monday thank you and hope no1 has done this already.


    Sc love!!!

    Well the center diff even filled with 100,00wt. fluid may still grenade. If anything the diff cup will melt and deform from the heat. You can run it with 2s safely on all surface's, but 3 and 4s will kill it quick. But, who know's you may be the luck one who can run 3 and 4s with it.

    Ive been running center diff on 3s for quite some time filled with 30K. The only issue I ever had was the plastic housing breaking down at the motor mount bearing. Bought an FLM aluminum housing and havent had an issue since. Ive run it on 4s and for my tastes thats just too much. Currently have it set up with a Tekin RX8/T8 2650 combo running mostly 3s and no issues at all. Its run fine like this on MMP and MMM with 1415, 1512 and 1515 motors 3s and 4s.

    Ive R&D'd it to 4s anyhow
