This is my first gear diff car and I tried to run the gear diff and I just cant seem do get the "rise" that most get from it... Am I running it wrong? I still prefer the ball diffs on both ends.

Im planning on running a solid front spool to reduce my oversteer. Anyone have luck with that? Stiffer sways arent cutting it...

ITs basically very heavy Diff fluid. The stuff ranges from 2000 to 300,000wgt and higher. The heavier the less diff action and closer it will feel like a spool, but like a spool with give(so you can hit walls LOL). Ask to take a lap on Eddie's car. It felt amazing last weekend when i drove it.

With a spool you have to understand that even when not hitting things that very violent forces are in play. You turn a corner and you have high grip and the left and right tires are fighting against each other. All that load and strain goes right through the front end from one wheel nut right to the other side. I have seen spools break from the strain. You will notice outdrives and cvd's wear out way quicker then the same parts at the rear of the car.

I was worried at first when I ordered from them, but it came pretty fast. It's a HK site, but my stuff was sent from Japan.

Front:

1mm under stock lower blocks

3 hole 1.1mm pistons
45 weight Losi oil
HPI Pink springs
Gear diff with putty
2nd out from center upper shock mount, stock lower

Rear:

1.5mm under lower blocks, 3 degree rear toe with aluminum front blocks
1mm under inner ballstuds (stock holes)
3 hole 1.1mm pistons
37.5 weight Losi oil
HPI blue springs
Gear diff with 1000 weight
2nd out from center upper shock mount, stock lower

Stock width with Sweep 32s. 2 deg. camber all around 5mm ride height, 2mm over ride height droop. Stock wheelbase.

Misc: Stock plastics, chassis milled beneath motor for cooling. PF Speed 6, SXT traction compound, full rear 90%ish front.

No sway bars, but I would have them on if I had them at the time. Next Wednesday is our next carpet night and I will update then.... The car is 90% there, just needs fine tuning.

Default difference between IFS and stardard shock position

I have a quick question about the front shock positioning of the TA06. I heard that putting the front shocks in the standard position instead of the IFS position would produce better weight distribution for this car. The only advantage of the IFS is that you can use a low profile body.

Have anybody tried putting the shocks upright and found a big improvement to their cornering?
