Depends on how you like your car and what the track conditions are like...

I found that it dramatically changed the balance of the car but the track I run on is very low grip. For me it gave too much rear drive to the car.

I think that you will get some better diffs if you buy the Yokomo or Spec-R diff. I have broken 3 or 4 of the small diffs , but after I bought one of each , I havnt broken one since. Use them both in front and rear

I posted one if Larry's from last year at http://racerlog.com/wiki/T.O.P._Photon#Setups . Look for the one from Jackson.

I haven't run outdoors yet but I'm going to mix that setup along with my current carpet setup.

I want to try it but I cant help thinking it would flex a lot (Possibly causing gear mesh problems) ???
Yes - single screw is good for mod. We are running the lunsford titanium fatboys.

I'm running 4mm of spacer and a one way .. the spool is just too tough on the parts inventory. I will have to measure the total length from center pivot to center line of the pivot ball. (416)
sorry to dig up an old thread , does no.9 insert give the most steering coming out of a corner ?? ..

I have been thinking about this relationship, i wonder if it would be beneficial to run a 1 tooth smaller front pulley to compensate for the additional rear drive? I think this is referred to as overdrive

Get the front of the car dragging itself out of corners a little more?

Yeah that's called overdrive. It might help but it will also cause other balance issues, particularly off power.

I actually liked the gear diff at Whalan but that's because the grip is available and the car felt like it flowed through those mid speed corners better. At Castle Hill you definitely need the front driving to pull the car out of the corners because there is no grip. With spool / ball diff I am able to get on the power quite early but with the gear diff all the car wanted to do was swap ends...
