try less droop as mentioned above. If anything else won't help to increase front on-power grip, you'll have to decrease rear grip. You may even play with rear diff tightening or less toe-in to get slightly more on power oversteer.
Just don't overdo it.

Thanks, I run foams on carpet so there's plenty of grip. Last meeting the car was rolling in the corners so I stiffened up the suspension front and rear and then later on stood the shocks up more but I still didn't feel the really quick change of direction and blinding corner speeds that I wanted so I was just wondering if there was a way I could get it. Also, would it have a similar effect if I was to raise the upper camber links?

Moot, post your setup, makes it a bit easier, also what class are you running and on what surface.

Default New version diff

Does anyone know the part number for the newer version of the diff kit or the part numbers for the individual pieces? The only things I need are:

New version diff bolt
New version retainer nut
Spring
Both ball sizes
D-Rings

Is the whole kit 75141 or is that the old version?

brushless, I bought the new diff screw and heavy-duty nut which comes in a kit (73522) for $3.68 from RainbowTen too. If you want, you could probably get by with the one from Team Associated which was like $1.60 and could be found locally. The part number for that is 6575.

I bought myself a TC3 diff rebuild kit. i used the thrust bearing, spring, nut and the bolt. it works like a dream. i did this after the stock pro4 bolt's head snapped off somehow

i'm back to the box setup.but with a spool,a 2mm chassis,no centre post,copper sway bar on the front and black on the rear.
i'm currently using cs-27's but will goto 22's now that its colder here.i normally run in 19t but like to have a go in mod with a 6t everynow and then.the surface that i run on is concrete that would be medium traction (at a guess)the location used to be tennis courts

what about tyre inserts? Also, does your rear diff slip of the line when you accelerate?
