I wont go into detail on how to build a diff as there are meny threads here on how to.
In the case i use AE silicone lube in the rear, just because i think diff is too smooth since i run spool.
Of course, maybe i will use again smoother diff lube in the rear diff in the next rebuild, if i really have to use front diff.

Locking a diff will increase tire wear which I thought you didnt want to do. On the front, locked diffs helps drive the car through a corner. But if you want to drive a car around a corner without locking the front there are other ways to do that. One could be having the front just a little more narrow that the rear. Shorten up the wheelbase, less castor thicken up the rear shock oil or dampen rate.
I think Trinity's 1 is just too smooth, with the picture i have saw.
I just want to try Nitro's silicone diff lube in the front diff, just to make the diff as Spool/diff behaviour. But the same time i don't want to have over wearing, that's why i don't want to lock it.
I could tell you the problem of the car is not really only out running on the corners and S curves.
My problem was my sorex 32R tires are going blistering but the car was so highbite, after 2/3 min of race my car becoming very difficult to drive, then my friend hadn't any problem in entire of the race then was also using the same compound tire with similar thickness and hardness of inserts, as i grab to comparing between our tires, so his car has double diffs, in the case is a TA04.
But anyway i will try running in the next race 36R with the same inserts(A-Medium), just because i think my last race the 32R was overheating, in the case of low air gap.
But i could tell you i have put my front shocks with softer springs, i am using already short front arms, front wheelbase are going closer a little with the rear.
