Waiting on getting an additional newer speeder to have better match instead of switching back and forth a borrowed speeder. Right now I have sphere, and borrowing a sxx tc. Hopefully a sxx stock spec or an Orca

See my EVO set up here if you want. I have the 416 uprights and ft knuckles, but rest is all EVO V.

I also prefer my Evo5 for 17,5T BL class racing !

I race mine with the original uprights. He only thing i have modded on my car is the front steering. i cutted off the steering posts just above the arms, an linked them with a selfmade carbon brace. Looks good!

I will post a pic later.

something must be wrong either the tungsten balls have gone bad or the diff plates are warped. Try new diff plates and balls then go from there.

I build mine the same way and it lasts almost 4 club races.

it sounds like he knows what hes doing when it comes to ball diff assembly, but I have never heard of a problem like this. Try installing one of those diffs in someone else's car if they are kind enough to allow you to.

If its it lasts a while then its another issue.
How tight is the diff? I run mine as loose as possible without any slip.

It never happened to me also, but do check your bevel gears as some tooth may be crack.

it's not just the weight, u can do this by adding subtraction. one thing is motor in use & gearing set according to track. else u will have torque steer. with the correct setup the car runs beautifully...
