Default Ball differntial

I have about one stick time (3000mha @ 27T brushed) on my chassis and noticed that my rear diff seems looser than initially. The front seems about the same. I think I may need to tighten up the rear diff soon. Since the Genetic assembly instructions for the ball diff is in Japanese can someone translate some of the key points for base configuration?

My prior experience with ball diffs is with Associated where they recommend a base setting of 1/2 turn loose from fully compressed.

(BTW, thanks for sharing the bumper pics & servo saver info!)

Post BUILD TIPS "Cut it Clean"

Most of you who like to run and race your shelf queen, and would like to
keep the exterior part of you body as scale as possible while racing door to door, one tip we would like to share is, how do you trim the body post to size?

some would say "just dremel it" from the top using the pin holes as your guide, this leave you with an uneven table top cut at the tip of the post, but if you have notice the body post have a rounded tip for a clean factory look, this is a simple overlook by some of us who is so preoccupied "where should I cut the post for a clean tight look"

if you look closely all 4 body post can be removed from the shock towers with a single screw for each post. after removing the post, now you can cut the post form the bottom not at the top end, preserving that rounded finish.

there's already an active 54-page thread on the ABC Genetic (http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...e-mseries.html) but I'll post my car here too



All the decals are custom made by me

I had the hidden body mounts but they don't work very well for racing.... for a shelf queen it keeps the body clean, but in a race, one hit from the rear and off comes the body....
