The stock Traxxas diff ratio is 2.85:1 while the hybrids use buggy gears that are 3.31:1, so your truck will be slower in top speed and you will have to adjust the gearing to compensate with a bigger pinion and/or a smaller spur gear. Use BrianG's speed calculator to help figure out where you want to be.

I don't want to create a new thread, so i post here.
Do the ultimate hybrid bulks are provided with 1/8 diff?

Explain "uncontrollable" a little better. Does it spin in towards the same direction everytime? What motor are you using? You could change the throttle curves on you radio or esc.

Usually i can punch it of the line it either plants nice and takes off or pops a wheely which i can control with the throttle but now it wants to spin like it on an axis it also wants to drift when it does take off. Yes it does spin in the same direction everytime to the right and im using the 2200kv mamba monster combo. I just recently purchased the castle link i can experiment

You should be running something like 7k front & 5k rear, or 5k front & 3k rear, in terms of diff fluids; 50k front & rear does sound like it's much too heavy, especially for 1/8 scale diffs.

Something doesn't seem right about this.

I've always felt like the thicker the better for diff fluids.

It is both tires pulling together that makes you track straight.

Too thick a fluid can affect turning but not straight line acceleration.

Example: If a diff cup were dry, no grease, it would spin one tire more than the other and create what you are seeing.

You are putting the grease inside the diff cup where the spider gears are, right? Not just inside the diff where the ring and pinion are?

Then is something binding in the driveline on the right side?

A Bad Wheel bearing would make it do this.

Or if you're like me, grass being wrapped around things. LOL

50k in a front or rear diff should be putting the power down pretty evenly as that is thick even for a MT. I think it's just spinning the tires and drifting due to the gyroscopic effect of the motor and driveshafts.

Either that or something is off in the steerig and/or alignment dept. Emaxx servo savers are notoriously sloppy, use the black spring in the servo saver and double check the alignment. Also with the truck off the ground give it a little stab of throttle, see if the wheels steer themselves at all when doing so. You could give the left rear a little more toe than the right rear to help it track a little straighter if all else fails.

All great suggestions thanks for the replies and no i put the locking diff fluid inside the diff case were the spider gears are and then some chassis grease on the ring and pinion gears

Ive come to the conclusion that the diff fluid is to thick and transferring more power to the rear ill get some 5k or 7k and let you know!
