I run on a blown off untreated asfault parking lot and am considering switching over to a front spool. Does anyone have an experience with this and how well it worked? If its already been discused can someone tell me about what page it is on?

thanks

I'm pretty sure i heard cliff say place the servo horn 1/8th-1/16ths of an inch to the right when looking at the servo from the front to help keep the servo from locking up on RETURN from full right. yeah.

No experience with a sppol here but i do know the car is harder than hell on it.

what are the differences in the actual chassis, shocks and moving parts from the rtr vs the racer kit, if any?

I'm pretty sure(almost 100%) that the RTR is a Racer Kit with low end electronics.

I agree ... I think the RTR is exactly the same as the Racer kit with cheap electronics added ...

Thanks proudwinner. I figure since the traction isnt as high as most tracks and cuz im running stock, i wont need new cvd shafts and diff outdrives every race day. Maybe every other race day.

Anyone else have experience?

A front spool will give you the on-power steering of a oneway, but you'll still have four-wheel braking. The downside is you lose offpower steering. This means you are forced to stay on the gas in the corner, or use other setup changes to give you your offpower steering back (i.e. more rear droop, more front kickup etc.).

I like the spool on the same surface you described but the track was huge. 130ft straight. But on a small tight track, the loss of off power steering really made it tough.

How easy is it to fix the diffs and actually get at the diff areas of the car, front and rear compared to a yokomo mr-4tc, because my yok is a pain you have to take like 50 screws out to get to them, I want something easy to fix, run and maintain.

all you have to do is take out the screws on the diff cases and undo the camber links and the lower shock mounts. It's pretty easy and quick.

Default TC3 One-way

Anyone know what happened to the ae one-way for the TC3? I can't find any info about it on the Ass site, and it doesn't show up searching on Horizon and Tower. Has it been discontinued? I found a part number searching on Google, 3938, but such a part number doesn't show up on the ae parts list or any of the online catalogs. What's the deal? Thx.
