Default Tc5

Spool in the rear ??? that will make it hard to steer corners the rear end will want to swap ends in corners basically fishing tailing.
Drifters would use a solid rear axle.

When racing it's a good thing to have the rear end follow the front.

From what I have read rear spool is rarely used only in high bite carpet situations. For outdoor asphalt 99.99% of drivers use a rear ball diff with spool on tight and mixed tracks, and on open tracks some use front one-ways...but never a rear spool. Car will be much easier to drive and faster with rear ball diff.

Yea, you definitely want a diff in the rear. Spools in the rear are for straight-line acceleration only.

If you are running on asphalt stick with the stock parts. They will flex a little under load and give more traction.

Hi

Does anyone know if any company out there makes an undertray/underbody to fit the TC5 for waterproofing?? Ideally available in the UK but if you know of any US based companies that would be cool too.

Thanks
Oli
