I ran one pack through my new yz2 at outback in Chico on high bite with the box stock set up and I could not get "NO" traction,kinda sucked.

Yes you want the shocks on the back. With oil 30F / 27.5R. I couldn't say what oil in the diff, I have ball diff in mine.

always ran my car on kyo golds and white though. had under battery 50g weights as well ran the car at about 1550g. Try packing the diff completely full of black grease should work quite well for the time being

Yok Diff=bfast plates, carbide balls, thrust washers, ceramic thrust balls 28.00. Amain has parts(whole diff been on backorder for months).Also Race and Drift Japan has parts, good prices and fair shipping. I just built one last night after waiting forever for amain to get the whole enchilada.

This setup is dialed at Outback. One mistake away from winning the Shootout last year. What tire are you currently using????

I had the same issue and didn't seem like I could get the clutch right, I thought lighter fluids in the diff also but was advised to go heaveyer so with the box setup to start out I ended up with 10k in the diff and 27.5 in front shocks and 25 in rear with machined 1.6 front an rear, now this car is on rails I also added about 70 grams of weight behind the motor, I was also told the car jumps like crap with the rear shock set up and have yet to try it, I'm running on medium to high bite clay with big jumps

Sucks getting stuff out of U.S. I understand but that's another part a-main never has. Race and drift Japan has them in stock, I just checked.

A parts list to hand build a ball diff would be nice for people. Something that could go on Page one would be great.

Both my YZ2's already have a ball diff so I'm good

With the limited running I did before my race this past Sunday, the track was more slick than Pat Riley's 1989 hair but when I got a bit of traction before hitting jumps, my car was excellent in the air. I did however install my DEX410 side weights to the very rear of the chassis side plates so I'm assuming they balance it out nicely. I do feel I need just a touch more weight at the very rear of the car but I have an idea for adding it in the most ideal location so as to offer a LCG but still adding a touch of roll to it for better mid speed cornering grip.

That's what this is for http://www.amainhobbies.com/rc-cars-...300ruw/p453879
With this you get some more on the very back rear and you have the option to add 1-2 more weights.
