Default Stock Spur

Can any of you learned gentlemen point me in the right direction for a spur to suit a stock motor running a fairly open track with a couple of long straits.

I have the kit 95t in right now, it's ok but not as quick as some.


Thanks

Default F/R Diff Setting?

Can anyone tell me how to check to see if my front and rear diffs are correctly tightened? And, how should the front diff be tightend in relation to the rear (e.g. looser, tighter, the same)?

Thanks

Default diff

leadfoot-I used a front spool. My rear diff it pretty lose. I would have the front diff pretty tight if i ran a diff and the rear diff lose.Its pretty hard to describe how to adjust the diff without trying out myself,hope this helps.

Scottymi2b - I used to run a lot of stock. I generally ran the biggest gear I could fit in the car. A 95 48p or a 128 64p. I am an old pan car racer and I was always told to run the biggest gear that fits as its more efficient than the same ratio with a smaller gear.

Default Diff Redux

tony rivas:

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I will play and see what happens. I am an old off-road buggy racer and the way that you checked in a buggy was to hold the spur and the motor side wheel and see how easily you could turn the other wheel forward. the proper adjust was when you could just barely slip the diff without chewing up the hand the held the spur.

I was just wondering if there was a similar trick for touring car.

Thanks for the reply

I set the rear the same way as you described and slightly tighter for the front

Can anyone give me an unbiased (good AND the bad) comparison between the Mission and the Mi2?.... performance, reliabilty, ease of setup etc

I dearly love my Mission but its time to upgrade for a serious crack at modified racing... I've found, with the sort of tracks I primarly run on, that the mission is a touch difficult to setup so that I am confident in pushing hard using a modified...

in Stock it is an absolute weapon

The best description I have heard for the difference is that if you drive your butt off to turn 12.0 sec laps (for example) with a Mission you can turn 12.0 sec laps all day with the Mi2 while having a casual conversation . It is faster and safer. It also seems to be very consistent in setup. We run close to the same setup on 4 different continents. This means the car works well in a variety of places without the need for radical setup changes.

I'm sure some other guys will chime in soon...but they are probably either racing right now or wrenching for Sunday morning...lol!

Having not run the original I can't comment on the difference, but I can comment on the Mi2 compared to other cars I've driven. Adrian is dead on. You feel confidant driving this car. And adjusting it. When you make a change to the car it does what it's supposed to do. I have confidence in making adjustments on this car that I never had before. I'm still learning the fine tuning of the car to get that extra .1 or .2 out of it but that'll come with time. Don V. and I have pretty different driving styles, yet our setups usually end up almost identical. Radio preferences tend to be the only thing different about the two.
