The Tamiya FF04 comes with 100kwt oil for the front diff. Depending on how good you are at controlling the skittishness of a FWD car, you could even skip the diff entirely and go with a spool for maximum traction.

Anyway, here's what I run when I feel like driving something FWD.



Technically it's FWD with part-time 4WD assist, not true full-time-FWD, but that just means it can accelerate fast in addition to handling like it's on rails. I'm quite happy with it.

I race the MTS FF Pro I currently use 2.5 million in the diff.
It has more turn in then using the spool. With 1 million the car turned in better but diffed out when pulling out of the corners.

I just ordered an FF03 CR-Z kit and an XV01T kit from Tamiyausa.com and paid only $213 combined. I'm looking forward to just exactly how much of an improvement they are to my old FF01 and TA02T (which was long ago converted to a rally car).

There was a FWD version of the TA02T?? But the weight balance is all wrong!

Have anyone tried 20M new diff silicone vs 2.5M, will it be almost same effect as a spool ? Thanks.

I switched to a spool in my scratchbuild and it improved the overall lap speed significantly, but then I don't have a gear diff option... yet

I can't imagine 20,000,000wt diff oil would feel different than a spool in a touring car. In a rock crawler, you might notice some diff action compared to a spool, but a touring car's tires are so much smaller (less leverage to force the diff to activate) and the length of time the diff is active is so much shorter.

I have never tried it in my FWD, but in my TC it feels like the spool but still allows some give if you Hit something.

A spool is a lot lighter normally and makes a noticeable difference

What is the effect with lighter oil in these cars? And I'm referring to FWD. I know it diffs out more but I've ran it with 5k and I'm still pretty fast with it. Does thicker oil feel better...more direct off the line?

Mine diffs out when doing pulling out of sharp corners, when using anything less then 1 million.

Hello, this is my small contribution. I just created me a prototype based on the architecture of Yokomo YR-F2 SP. The pieces come from a Sakura D3 and chassis joints come from an ASSO 12R5. Other carbons parts and aluminum pilasters are made with milling machine.
I also own a YR-F2 SP brand new in box.
These photos.
