Also, what is the brand of choice for gear diff oil. I see that A-Main sells Mugen in 10k and 100k and also sells Ofna in 10k and 100k. They have a price difference of 50 cents.

Thanks Marcos. I saw your diff weights earlier in this thread. Would you recommend the same weights for asphalt?

I run the same set up on both

For me I have the steering of a oneway going in to the corner (but with lots of brakes )and the feel of the spool coming out of the corner. But thats my input

Yeah, well this was a B main fun race where I had the only Photon and I just started racing RC a few months ago. Martin drives a Photon and the only time I've seen him not win the A main, he stopped so he could have a little battle with the second place guy.

Troll harder next time.

Anyone install a fan to keep their motor cool? If so, can you please post some pics on how you mounted it? I have seen pics on various other cars of motors mounted behind the motor and the heatsink version that clamps onto the motor.

Trying to see what is out there.

3Racing and Intigy both make a good clip on with fan. Otherwise just shoe glue to the chassis just behind the lay-shaft pulley screw. Muchmore makes a great high-speed fan for this purpose.

I use the Boss Fan taped to the chassis with Top servo tape. Easy and effective.

This is the fan that Larry is talking about. I've been running the same fan since the East Coast Race of Champions. It dropped my motor temps 30-40 degrees at the race. I shoe goo'd mine behind the motor at an angle so that I can still access the center pulley and hinge pin screws.

Hi guys, I am looking for a gear diff that can fit on my Avid 2 car.
Does anybody know the width of a diff from the Top Photon to know if I can give it a try. Also, what is the size of the blade that you use on the Photon?
Thanks for your help

I was able to run the dual gear diffs today and they worked very well. I ran the spool up front for the first qualifier to get a baseline with a best lap of 16.7. Second qual I dropped in the gear diff up front with 100k / 10k combo and dropped my best lap time to 16.3 and dropped my average by .4 secs as well. Car had better steering into the turns and still pulled hard out of the turns. Overall the car didn't feel much different, but the lap times were better. I could drive the car hard with the spool in it with no ill handling issues, but the two diff setup proved better for the day.
