Hi all,

it seems there are a lot of differences between brands of grease (AE, Losi, etc...).
Just would like to know if someone has experienced some different brands, and which one should be the best to use (durability for example).


Thanks all

The steel gears are great! The gear diff is now indestructible.

Now waiting for the TRF511 upgrade set, or gear diffs for the TRF502X.

I want to upgrade to gear diffs with the steel gears. Is there a part nr with all the necessary part included? Or do I need to order a plastic gear diff (54329), throw the plastics into the bin and replace them with the steel versions (54428).

The bits don't cost a fortune bit finding the items in 1 shop is more of a problem. Tips/ recommendations?

...err, and still leaks.

I read that there's a new spacer for the 417V5 that's wider/thicker to replace the three thin shims and helps seal it?
