    MAXX - rear diff fluid weight

    Any input here as to what weight is working for different terrain? I've seen the info out there about putting 500k in the rear to make it more stable. Are there any other weights working well for other maxx users? I believe stock weight is 50k anyone try 100k? any difference?

    Hi, I was just about to start a thread about this. I've been wondering the same. So far on mine , i've changed my centre diff to 60k although some have mentioned 500k !!, and rear to 10k, but not many people talk about the front. What is the general consensus for all 3?

    It be interesting to see

    i think the maxx comes with either 2m or 20m in the center not sure why you'd change that to 60k?

    i put 500k in my rear and have no regrets. i bash it on grass and in the street. i also put some erevo2 tires on mine with a 20t pinion(24t is stock)

    No such thing. Everyone has a different opinion.

    Agree 100%, thats why i run, after longterm testing 10k rear, 50k mid and front, and its a dream, so easy to drive. Still flips or wheelie if we need to.

    Keep the stock 50K in front if you ask me, less steering, go up. Mainly people try to prevent stuff ( such as balooning, or it diffs-out" ) and never asked them self after running it.."what they want the car to do" m

    I run 100K front, Stock 20mil center and 500k Rear. Mainly, the rear needs some lockup to keep it from diffing out and rolling over. You can see by this short clip how the left rear tire ballons and throws it a bit sideways.

    A fair warning running 500k in the rear will eat up your tires a lot faster if running on the street. However it makes it great for running on grass, stabilizing wheelies w out diffing out, and being able to ride on the side wheels longer

    I agree with Thomas 1000%. Locking up the diffs defeats the whole purpose of what they're for.

    I am running 500 center and 500 rear and that keeps the wheelies tamed. You can actually do speed runs and not have it go all over the road and tipping over. its almost impossible to tip it over on gravel or loose dirt now. I really like it now. I'm also running 3.8" badland tires 149mm
