shock and diff oils are different, Shock oils are like 5 weight up to 100 weight, diff oils go from 1000 weight to 100,000. Shock oil on the bottle is for shocks,diff oil on the bottle is for diffs. Go inside the hobby shop and get with ray or kendall about any questions you have, they will guide you down the right path so that you have more Fun with your R/C car. :)

Um no. Diff oil is much thicker and goes from 1K weight all the way up to 500K weight and a little something called OFNA Diff Lock Lube. That stuff is so thick that you have to spoon it in the differentials.

Ask one of the car guys at Mikes. They can get you the diff oil you need

Got a 10TT and ran today at practice. Pulled out of the box with a duo 13.5 and a Tekin RS-non pro. I think the stock fluid leaked out of the duffs they all had little resistance. Car ran well on the straight but needed more pop to clear the jumps. Car was a ton of fun ran (3) batts no breaks...hit the pole the first time I put the hammer down... Tough car! Car needs more forward traction and maybe a faster motor. So far I'm very impressed with the 10TT.

Eric, I would put a 8.5 or maybe a 7.5 in your TT..... I have a 6.5 in mine and thinkin' of putting a 7.5 in it just so i can handle it a little easier. As far as the kit tires go, keep them for emergencies and put double D's all the way around it...

Does the motor need to be sensored? or will a non-sensored 8.5 or lower work okay?

I picked one of these up. Plan to run a 6.5 540. I've read about the steering mod and after looking at the truck can see why it is necessary. I plan to lay down the battery and move it forward. Has anyone moved the battery tray forward by drilling holes and moving the whole tray as far forward as possible? If so, did it make the truck jump with an excessive nose down attitude?

I think that it is nose heavy stock. I couldn't imagine moving it forward. But everyone likes it different i actually added 1/2 oz of weight in the rear.

A friend of mine just burnt up a castle esc in his tt 2 weeks ago. He doesnt have anything good to say about castle. My opinion is buy a tekinesc and a novak motor.

Their is nothing wrong with Castle. Every speed control WILL have its problems, period. Castles Mamba Max Pro works EXCELLENT. It's awesome having a 1/10 scale ESC that works excellent even in 1/8 setups.

I'm running the $120 castle sidewinder sct combo in mt TT w/ the stock 13T pinion. My TT clears the triple with no effort at all, even when using cheap 20C lipo packs! I'm using the fan that come w/ the kit's 4-pole motor, but it's really not needed. I heard the sidewinder sct esc can run warm on some setups so I added a 25mm fan to mine to be on the safe side- after a couple of runs the fan came appart... I ran a couple of batteries w/o the fan on the ESC and esc was fine. For $120 out the door the sidewinder sc motor speedo combo is a great deal. They released new software for the sidewinder (2) weeks ago. version 1.31

Sidewinder SCT Edition ESC
• Neu-Castle 1410 1y 3800 kv motor
• CC Blower fan shroud for 36mm motors

Great to hear that and I will give it a try. Won't hurt to try and see how the temp is on couple runs. I'll start at 14T pinion and work my way up there. Thanks for the help! I'll race my TT with you guys next weekend.

Eric Perez, haven't heard that name in years. Not sure if you're who I'm thinking about so I have to ask. Do you have a brother named Shawn.
