Well did some testing

Ball diff

28 g under tran.
1630g total. Got it down
8.5t

Just can't put the power down and have the rear hold. On a dry track. On race day traction is up. On practice days like today not good. .

Two options y-max or smc bass 100 in the rear which is better?

Will, do you have a larger, more clear version of this? Some of the text is hard to read.

What Yokomo, Losi or AE springs are closest to the Avid springs?

I believe they're all close or offer one that' close. Losi's are easy enough to find.... Yellow rears and orange fronts look close.

Do you build the Yokomo ball diff just like an Associated diff? Full tight, then back 1/8 turn?

Its a good start but I gave up on using that setting a long time ago. I set it until the diff stops barking on a bench test. Diff balls and thrusts are way better now of days than they were in the past.

Seting the ball diff. The bmax2 instructions from memory said tighten till it stops. Don't back off at all. May want to tighten easily till stop. Or may want to check on the bmax instructions.

I set mine like Will on the bench. I will begin at a setting where I slowly tighten diff screw until I can't turn diff gear when holding both outdrives from moving. I then have an old bone cut in half that I toss into my DeWalt and spin one out drive while holding the other. I do this for 2 min then switch. I will check diff tightness and then again use DeWalt. I do this 3 to 4 times, then I install diff into car. I will do final setting by holding both rear tires by hand and doing a quick 1 second full throttle squeeze. I look for the front to come off the table about 2 inches. I also try to listen if diff or slipper make noise and adjust accordingly until everything is set where I want it. When I get to the track I will do a few blasts down the front stretch to make sure it is all ok. Then I go race

This is a great video that shows the way I do it. Do not mind the vehicle he uses, not everyone knows the potential of the Yokomos.

Question for the Yokomo experts, can I use A/E big bore pistons in the shocks? I bought a gently used buggy, rebuilt it, redid the shocks and they feel fine but I'd like to switch to 1.6/1.7 instead of "2"/"3" and I have bags of A/E pistons.
