Amain has/had the King Heads AL spur gear adapter. If you get one don't forget the thread lock for the spur gear bolts. They back out in a hurry if you don't use any on this part. When the screws back out they like to munch your top deck and make a lovely racket so at least you know they're coming out before your spur strips.

I didn't do that with the king headz one and never had a problem.

I've had them back out on me twice when I didn't use it. I use Robinson Racing super machined spurs which are really hard compared to the softer stock spurs (Kimbrough type I think?)

I've fought with that before on medium to low grip asphalt. It's really frustrating especially when there's an Xray T3 around turning in effortlessly.

I ended up going back to a mostly stock rubber tire setup but ran slightly heavier oil in the front, smaller pistons all round and played with the droop front and rear and use 1 degree of toe out on the front wheels. I don't have my setup book near me for the next few weeks unfortunately but it is possible to overcome this situation with the TC5. I can now turn in harder than the Xray T3 at my track and get on the throttle hard without spinning out or pushing. I'm still getting a lot of front tire wear though so the front tires are still working a lot harder than I'd like them to.

If the car was good before the diff rebuild, and the track hasn't changed, I'd look at the diff first. The diff screw is supposed to be backed off about 1/8 turn from full spring compression, if I remember right. Having the diff too tight will induce a push like you're describing. Also, the front of the body isn't dragging on the asphalt when you turn into a corner, is it?
