    I'm back in the hobby!

    I have had a Baja 5T for years now but over the last 4 years it's basically sat in my garage untouched. I had the sudden urge to get it back up and running.

    Is this normal for a TR trans case?

    Are these two things normal? Or am I doing something wrong?? First one is some heavy slop in the idler gear. I did this exact same thing with my stock trans case and it had 0 play at all. Next up is the bottom of the trans case where it bumps out...

    Best way to keep diff fluid in the diff?

    Is there anyway to stop the diff from leaking fluid completely? It seems to leak out of the case around the bearings/drive cups.
