front spool w/ XRay ECS
rear ball diff

gear diffs, in my opinion, are made for modified motors (carpet) and asphalt racing.
you could also consider a ball diff up front with thick grease (losi brown) -- but frankly it is probably not worth even trying it.

Ahhh, looks like you beat me to it Luppi. I just did this mod yesterday. Anxious to try it out. I like how it allows you the room to place a fan in front of the motor and also keep all electronics between the servo and motor.

Can you get full steering lock with this mod? It looks to me like the ball cup or rod will hit the bulkhead and stop it from getting full throw.

Also what is really the point? Just for more space?

with Bellcrank Rearward, Your Impression si Right!
with Medium or Forward no Problem!
steering is very fast, Maybe too much!
is just an idea, isn't guaranteed to function perfectly, in fact you have to use a lot of Exp on radio...
but Steven used this mod...I'm waiting for a response from him to find out why he used this configuration, from what I see in the picture must have a very aggressive steering.
I know something just write it

When I build my shocks I measure them with the cap off to the top of the shock body and to the bottom of the eyelet. This distance is 49.5mm

+1 -- doing the measurement with the cap off is key to getting the shocks perfectly equal

I index my shock caps to insure that they r identical lengths every time I change fluid. And also index the spring adjuster so I know howmany turnes I make changing height

EJ is running a narrow chassis and is doing really good
In mod! His car is looking great! He is also putting it down in 13.5 12th (6th)!!

Me on the other hand......... well still working on a good run for 17.5 and 5th in 21.5
And still trying to find a good FDR.
