Definetly go for the ITF. It will make the car more forgiving and have more traction. Marin is kinda bumpy so it will help even more there. I've run Ryan C's Reedy Race setup at all the tracks in Norcal (Marin, Norcal Hobbies, Speedworld) and it has been dialed at each.

Cool, thanks for the advice. Is there any way to buy the TC5 with ITF chassis and brace instead of the normal one?

Neil, most usually tighten there diff fully and then back it off a 1/4 turn. Atleast that is what guys were talking about on here when the kits first came out and that is how i have run my foam tire diffs and they have been great so far.

I have never liked cranking down the diff assembly first as I like to avoid excess stress on the parts. I put a hex driver in each outdrive cup and tighten the diff until the pulley is difficult to turn by hand. I run my front tighter than the rear, but both still almost impossible to turn (I run 19T).

I know people were asking about P-Dub Bumpers a while ago. I found out today that Nexus Racing is carrying them. I plan to get one ASAP!

yeah, they just used the T2 pic. I think Arun is still waiting to take the picture? I'm probably going to head out there tomorrow and check it out.
