I'm use a gear diff in the front and rear. The front has 100k wt. oil so it very tight but still has some diff action for good initial turn in. The rear has 1k oil.

You say you need something stronger than the spool? What's breaking? It's a fairly simple piece.

Thanks for the gear-diff photo ghiro..it does look solid and nice..btw, i did a test run this morning at my local track..it seems that the ball diff run perfectly. the only problem that occur this morning was the ball join at the rear keep popping out even if i hit a curb.minor accident. Lucky i have a lot of ball join set from my previous car which are more tight and solid. i suggest you do the same thing to avoid disappointment.

First serious test run: W O W! What a Car!!!! I've replaced the front spool with the fixed ball diff. and find it a whole lot better, steering is more agressive and i can set faster lap times. The track is outdoor asphalt with a medium/high grip surface,small and technical design, something like 800sqM, usually with a 10.5T 1/10 Touring car lap times are around 14.5 sec's, today i was able to set a 14.2sec's Lap!!! The motor is a 10.5t SpeedPassion V3 one cell version, Hobbywing Xtreme stock Esc Boosted+Turbo, Savox low profile servo ( same i use with the WRC formula car) Venom 60C /Orion 45C 2S Lipo's. I gave a very hard times to the many 1/10 sedans on the track, it was the "cutie" of the track, once at the Pit it was the queen of the day, everybody was amazed and actracted . I'm very happy about this little bastard. I think it'll be it's name, gotta make some stickers .

I bought two actually, my reference for the cut of the wheels is the front end. At the rear there's more room to allow the wheel to fit than at the front. Weird thing about this chassis is the cut sign around the wheels is more suitable to fit full 1/10 scale wheels

yes, you are right.. maybe the position that i told you earlier doesn't really look nice..it would be something like this.

Still about $195USD and who knows how much shipping is...

Still waiting on EGR Mart to get some in stock. I'd order from HKS Hobby if they didn't have such a bad rep....
