1 degree or 0 degree...does not matter... toe-in is adjusted with the toe-in blocks.

I use a normal ball diff on carpet, but part of the reason for that is that I still have problems with the one-way gears breaking. A lot of it depends on your driving style but I would say that it's easiest to drive with a ball diff, a one-way diff needs a certain different driving style.

when you use the the diff do you find it easier to brake at high speeds?

Braking with a one-way diff is very difficult unless you are on a very high grip surface, you can brake with a one-way on carpet but not too hard or the car will just spin out, braking with a ball diff is much easier and if you're a heavy braker then I wouldn't consider a one-way diff, but maybe a spool.

thanks for ur replys guys i think i will keep the diff in to see how it goes but i may try a spool to see if thats any better.

but i think i will deffo stick with the diff as i like to brake hard at high speeds.

thanks

also im using lrp top traction additive but on the bottle it says apply to tyres 30 min before ur heat but between that 30 min 10 min before ur heats starts wip eof with a towel

do i actually have to do this or can i jus apply 30 min before then jus leave on

thanks

Plus if you don't wipe it off you'll probably put black "11's" on your clubs new carpet and probably not be so popular....

Also change you pivot blocks from the stock set to 0deg-front & 1deg-rear.
Would 0 deg front and 1 deg rear too small ?? even it's just for Johnson 540?

Hello,

What are the parts needed to build a front spool? I also really need some help with my batteries staying in the car and/or not shifting. I use fiber re-enforced tape from SpeedTechRC. It works OK. However the asphalt I run on takes it's toll. Does any one have a better way?

Thanks

no need to build your own spool... an aluminum spool is being sold already.

use the stock battery strap..that should keep your batteries in place if you're having broblems.

Thanks rc-zombies. I have the spool, so I won't need anything but the gear and bearings? I just want to make sure I get the right parts. As far as the battery pack goes it has been a thorn in my side since I got the car. It's kind of embarrasing racing and seeing you battery pack flinging around outside the car! I used the stock piece and it didn't last half a lap. Fiber tape is good until I have to change batteries! I just wanted to know if there were some alternatives.

Thanks
DFS

I had the same problem so wat i did was i double wrapped the batteries in then when changing the batteries just cut the middle of the tape then have little pieces of tape waiting on the side and then put your batteries in using the same tape after that just put the little pieces of tape over the part you cut and it should stay in.
