Can any check to see if a CF lipo strap from a B4 would work on the 210 if you have one? More importunely, check to see if the armswill reach the screw holes and the TD thumbscrews will tighten down.

I think the male part of the one out drive may be to long .
Did you only have one bearing in diff? If so that could be part of the problem. This diff should be one of the best if built right.

I am running the 3 gear tranny and my car has a little push to it. I have only got to try 1 set of tires so far. Ill have more wheels tonight to mount tires on so I will have to see if that helps. I only got to put 4 batteries through it last night but it was a lot of fun

Mine has a real bad push but it's getting better. I only had a couple of hrs on the track to make some adjustments.
Wow, really? You must have the wrong tires or something? The first thing I noticed with this car is how much steering it had without breaking the rear end loose.


On my B4, I always ran a 81t spur with a 23t pinion with an 8.5 motor. Now I have a 7.5, so do you think with the 23t pinion, the 87t spur will be a good match?

Just stayed up all night building the roller. I was missing all of the screws that mount the rear brace to chassis. Oh well I have extras. Also some very tight tolerances: Idler shaft, front steering brace block, and even the shock shafts where the spacer goes on before the piston. Nothing a little sanding, polish and time didn't fix. I did strip out the heads on a few cheap screws to. And Yes, I do have EDS drivers.

A great Diff, had 0 problems assembling that. The car is so smooth, I cant wait to hear only the tiny thumps of the tires on the clay. . I should have it ready for Leisure Hours this Saturday!! Just missing a transponder. Oh well.

I started with 35 front and back. The front feels good, but the rear feels over damped. I'm certain I will be at 35/27.5 by the end of the day tomorrow at the track.

I did 30 / 27.5 Associated. We will see... Did you use 6 hole pistons?

I used the 1.3s and 1.2s right out of the book. I forget which went in front and which went in the rear... and not sure which has the larger holes. I assume the 1.3 are larger, but im not sure... Either way, the smaller holes should be in back, with lighter oil than the front. But all of my previous thinking might go out the window with the RM4 setup.

I have ALL DAY saturday to test, should be fun.

I have 1.3's front, 1.2's back. 35wt front 30wt rear. 30wt rear felt fine the other night at the track but probably will try 27.5 this weekend.

But with the extra rear downforce with my RM4 setup, I might need/want to run a stiffer rear end with more anti-squat to keep some on-power steering... Should also make the car land like a champ.
