real cars dont need it because they are designed absolutely differently. motor is up front..drift cars are RWD, suspension is designed differently alot of things are different than our r/c.
and as for more power bias rear more and less front helps achieve being able to achieve full lock, AND hold it through a drift.

a spool is used. i dont think you understand what i'm trying to do here. check out the video i posted...drift cars DO use spools in the rear, and ball/gear/or oneway diff up front. but this is different, quite different as a matter of fact. purely has to do with gear ratios and having the rear spin faster than the front.
bump, i found the 13t gear..its off an associated monster truck
still looking for 18t input gear and 42t diff gear!!
