I would say as long as they are smooth no need to redo them. If thats 10, 20 or 30 plus packs or more. I have alot of packs thru my car in stock and mod and my diff is still as smooth as when I went over it from new. I have at least 40 plus packs thru mine.

Take your diffs and sand them with 600 grit paper and then instal the ceramic diff balls and the diffs will probably outlast the outdrives.

To bad the PORC race was rained out this weekend. My Mi2 EC was working good. WYD had his Mi2 EC on rails. Great job Brian. Didn't get a chance to see Bob Barry run. Justin's car looked pretty good also.

my car was easy to drive...just slow. I wasn't able to carry the corner speed that Brian was because of a major push on entry. I had made some changes and think it will be better but I didn't get another chance to try it. I think I had issues because the track changed so much. I tried to adjust to the track and I think I made some bad calls. Oh well, I will be ready for the make up.

Good to hear you can make it for the new date. I made a change in caster blocks to try to get compensate for my heavy hand in steering and throttle. It was over steering for me on exit of the corner. Other than that my car was working great. My Schumacher is working so good for me. It is the best thing I did, buying this car for asphalt.

hey whats the biggest spur you guys have run SUCCESSFULLY outside. I noticed that the kit 48 pitch spur is an 89 and when I put it next to a 120 it is pretty much the exact same diameter...I put a 120 on just to see how it fit and it just barely is recessed in the cut out. I usually run a 116 but I was going to try to play with some different combo's to see if I like the way the car feels.

The set up Mo ran for the nats works killer on parking lot track once you fix your spool....LOL This car is very easy to drive. The only car out there that was dialed was E.J.'s Tamiya. No one was gonna beat him. Jimmy Jacobson even got lapped I will be going back to their next race. I had a blast and it was nice being the only Schuie in a mob of Tamiya's.

Thanks Steve. Your car was pretty smooth from the first practice. I was very happy with my MI2 EC and really wanted to run more because the car was working so well for me. I think I could of had a pretty good race result if my car would of kept working like that all weekend.

Bob it happens. My car was ok during Fridays practice but Sat morning when I laid the front shock in one hole to the inner most on the front tower was the ticket as my car now was smooth over the bumps and still steered just as well and especially when I raised my rear diff. Like I mentioned I have Weylins setup except for having the rear diff raised to stock and 1 mm longer rear shocks at 62mm long. Everything else was Weylins setup.

I would have had his setup on there but the 3 deg blocks were back ordered. I was happy with my setup on Friday. I was close. I figured with actual race batteries and motors I would have been able to get another couple tenths out of the car. There is alot of potential there that I still havent been able to get a chance to unlock.....it's coming.
