Sounds like a good race Revo. Like it was said before, switch to a single high torque steering servo, install it on the tank side. Do the Slayden steering mod , put Kyosho 500K diff oil in your center diff. Bring as much weight to the front as you can i.e. fuel tank more to the front, throttle servo to the front where the stock steering servo was, battery up front zip tied to the body mount or do the "under the chassis mod". Make a set of sway bars and you'll have a Revo that'll give a hard time to Truggies.

I am just asking a question out of curiosity. When the 1/8 buggies usually run10k fluid or less in there center diff , why would you want to run such heavy oil in the revo center diff??? I thought that thick of fluid would baically "lock" the diff and with a locked diff, it makes it rather touchy to controll in the air. And all the other reasons associated with "loose" center diffs.
