    Hey all, got my SC8E last Friday, love it so far. Just installed FT billet top plate and chassis braces, put a 17t pinion on, my batteries are trak power 4s 60c 5600mah. If I feel ambitious, tonight ill do the steel spur gear and center diff. Any suggestions on viscosity of fluid? Thanks in advance.

    It says it comes 10-10-10, I have a feeling the center is empty (after the first run, the inside of the body was sprayed with oil from middle(I have the maiden voyage on YouTube, but can't post links yet). I actually just bought a bottle of 7k.
    Thanks for the welcome.

    So, liking the Mamba max pro and all, I have one in my mini revo, I wasn't feeling confident with a 1/10 scale unit in this 1/8 scale truck, was at my lhs and for kicks and giggles I offered the owner my week old mmp for seventy bucks off a Tekin RX8 he had in the case, to my joy he said yup, so now a new RX8 is installed. Baked the stock rubber off today and installed trenchers too. 46 tooth steel spur and 7 k is in the center diff, gonna do five in the rear and seven in the front.

    Got the aluminum shock bodies, FT spring sets front and rear and am going to install tomorrow. My friend got his sc8e last Friday and we've been having a ball. Got some videos but can't post links until I have ten posts, so I might make a few nonsense posts to bring up the count.
