So how much grease do you put in a joint?

I pack the outer joint to fill the the cup (joint installed) basically flush with the cup, nothing in the boot. I pack the inner cup about 1/3rd full before I put the joint in it and then add a bit more but it’s not packed totally full and definitely nothing extra in the boot.

Im not particular enough to measure the grease first for a perfect, exact amount.

Update

Update from Previous race weekend:
I found out that there was an error in the timing/scoring from the Pacific Raceways Majors event 2 weeks ago. While I did finish 2nd place on Saturday - I did in fact - resent the track record by 1.3 seconds! Previous was 1:36.1 and the new is 1:34.8.

Axle update
The breather tubes where perfect and only a smidge of grease found its way out which suggests what I suspected - that I use too much grease.

Last weekend update and videos:
Last weekend was the double regional. Saturday was the rain dance and Sunday was flat out in the dry. I think either I or Totemo reset the T4 track record here but we have to wait for official results to post. Totemo set down a SMOKIN' qualifying pole position of a 1:57.0 - ZERO T4 cars managed a 56 that weekend.

In this race video - we lined up on grid with our slicks gambling that it would stay dry. It did not as you can see and Totemo and managed to retain 1st and 2nd while searching for grip.


In race #2 on Sunday it was dry. Totemo on pole with A7s and I went out on my R7s - planning on being rough on my tires for the entire race. The black RX8 that passes me is technically a T4 car but was not entered in T4 that weekend - it was also driven by a professional driver. Knowing that I wasn't competing with him, I did not attempt to stay too close because he felt it necessary to kick up rocks every chance he got. Maybe OK in the pros, but in club racing, it's consider unsportsmanlike. I wish I had my rearview adjusted better because Totemo was relentless. Maybe he'll share his footage.

Congrats on the track record. That is a HUGE margin. Looking forward to watching the videos. I like seeing what you share. Thanks.

1:57.0 with a 55mm restrictor plate and minimum 2950 weight That's badass.

I'll post my video in a few days, Monday through Wednesday is pretty busy to accommodate COVID changes. I'll also update my build thread with some information that might be helpful for those interested in slightly lower cost builds. It's still expensive, just not as expensive.

Here is Sunday's video. My car will not downshift into 2nd gear this season so I gave up on using it, except for the last lap where there was nothing to lose buy attempting to use it. I also need to figure out how to not get passed at the start.
