    Hyper 7 TQ differential fluid amount

    Hey guys new here, just got a hyper 7 earlier this week and I'm looking into the silicone oil for the diff's. But here's my problem, how much fluid goes in the diff's?

    Differential reassembly questions

    I am in the process of cleaning the differentials on my Ofna Ravager and had some questions. Is the paper gasket really that critical? Can I just use grease or some kind of gasket in a tube from an auto parts store? I found replacements, if they are absolutely needed...

    Locked differentials?

    Is there any way to lock the differentials in the tmaxx? I have a feeling it would help going through rough terrain. As I'm sure most of you know (this even applies to 1:1 vehicles.) Differentials always want to put the power to the wheel that has the least traction. For example, I was...
