is a spool cool in onroad if the track is slick or would it be better to just run a little tighter front diff?

Ok, easy question.

Do you run a spool? Yes or no?
everyone quote this, then put your answer

I have access to a CNC mill/lathe at my school , and was going to make some pieces for my TC3, but since I am not running that anymore...., I decided that the one thing that I cannot find in the US, or maybe anywhere, is an actual spool for the Mi2, I am not going to go the lock-up-the-diff-way, so I have drawn up two main designs that I am going to show to my CAD/engineer teacher and get something going here. I want your answers to see if I should make a lot, or just a few, for a few select people.(as in buying the material in bulk or not)

You add spacers to the back of the car but not the very back....if that makes any sense. Place your car without the body down on a table and look at it from the top....the roll center blocks located right in front of the droop screws are wherethe spacers should go. I have played with 1mm 2mm and zero anti squat in the rear. I like zero to 1mm the best. If my description doesn't work for you Adrian or PW are always on this site lending helpful tips. Good luck and let us know if this worked for you.

I always describe it as raising the front edge of the Rear Wishbones at a static ride height. Hence putting spacers under the front pair of rear arm mounts.

We are not big fans of one piece solid spools. If you hit something with a solid spool you will break something.

If you make a spool out of a diff when you hit something the diff outputs can slip and dissipate the energy of the hit rather than breaking your car.

A lot of the local TC3 and Xray racers have started doing this so they can finish races more often.

lol, no offence to anyone, but I ran a spool with my xray since day one, back when, and never broke anything due to the spool. TC3 I only broke an A-Arm, but that was because a piece of re-bar was sticking out of the ground
