The topshafts are not the same. With how tight the stock slipper gets, there is no need at the moment to figure out a mod to run a lockout.

I run full droop as much as possible and have switched to BMax2 axles, which are about 3mm longer
Why are you running that much droop? With the 2 limiters in the rear I had more than enough steering for my car. Yokomo is pretty on point with their engineering.

Still learning slipper and diff setups. Question is it normal for the slipper to still slip no matter how tight I have it. Using a 69 spur and stock pads, 17.5 Shurspeed motor.

I currently am running schuurspeeds and have it near bottomed out. You might get your diff for slip as it may not be from your slipper. I found a decent video that will allow for some understanding into diffs/slippers. Watch the video so you can inform yourself of sounds and settings.

Thanks, so on the slipper nut. You have the nut cranked all the way down. I though compressing the spring that much would damage it.

1 - More droop tends to make a car more forgiving on landings (more down travel)

2 - More droop allows one to get more rebound if running rebound setups

3 - On low grip tracks (the outdoor tracks here are VERY low grip, much lower than anything in the warmer states) more droop can allow for more roll, which can make the difference in going into corner and turning or pushing

I dial change front drop / limiting to help dial in on power steering, but run full droop in the rear almost 100% of the time

I have no interest in running a lock-out, someone previously mentioned they would like to, and thought I would shed some light into what I have seen some of the others locally here are doing with their B5's

Here is the setup I currently have on mine. First race weekend is this Saturday so it may change depending on how things go. Race day track conditions will be different than practice!
