Have many people been running a gear diff up front with a very heavy oil at all ? Takes me back to making up carpet spool's for the Mi2EC :O)

Makes sense as it gives the drive train some resiliance to accidents.

Just wondering if anyone has run the TCX one way but using the Pro4/Cyclone 44mm steel dogbones? It should fit right?

Also this one way can be run as a spool as well? I noticed there were pins to lock the outdrive cups.

I have not tried it but have seen posted multiple times the one-way/44 mm bones combo.

Ackerman arms are longer and inset a little bit. Your tie rods would probably be shorter by 1 or 1.5 mm.

According to HB's site, you can only use the 44mm shafts or DCJ's with the TCX One Way/Spool. (see attached)

For carpet I recommend 500K, same hardness works very well also on asphalt, yesterday I used to race in one track very small and technical, I won the TQ and won the race, very fast car and easy to drive, I used two differential Spec-R with 500K ant. and 1K post. with the front differential I have combined with the DCJ 44mm resulting a truly exceptional steering with the total absence of chattering.

This is common when using a front gear diff

about electronic configuration, why not place the ESC after servo (from front to rear) then receiver? i think placing more front will give better weight distribution and car more stable... hope to see feedback... thanc for reply
