When I spin the tires it kinda binds and as soon as I loosen them up so they almost touch the case it is fine. Is their a trick or something I'm missing? Never had it happen on my other Losi G+ I had last year. I do have an IRS spool in but it will do it if I put the diff in to.
Never had the problem, switch it out with a new front diff cover and hopefully the problem will stop. Also check that your front bearings are still good.

I will put a new cover on it and see if it is any better. I just put in new ceramic bearings in it and have even ran it yet. Actually can't wait to run it as the drive line feels so smooth.

I really dont use spools or diffs much, even on the really tight tracks. If you are running mod and have enough time on the track to get the car up to speed to where you can hit the brakes and possibly pass someone with a 1 way by going in the turn late, then a spool could be useful for you.

I've been running spools a lot lately. I like them on the tighter tracks that don't have a huge amount of grip.The reason I didn't like them before was the lack of off power steering on the tight tracks but I've got a parking lot setup that's got pretty good trun in and is very stable I could Email you if you want to try it.

Hey guys,
When arm spacing is listed as back on a setup sheet, does that just mean those motor shims are moved back(if its the rear of the car)?

No, that means the arms are as far back as they'll go. So the plastic washers are all in front on the arms.

Either the diff being too tight or too loose.
An overly loose diff will slip on excelleration, making alot of noise and gradually damaging the diff.
An overly tight diff will either:
Rear diff-Cause the rear of the car to bounce around and spin, I had this problem last week
Front diff-No turn in.

OK....Parking lot with medium traction to high traction. Temps running from 95 to 125. CS 27's are the norm. I was wondering what tire cleaners and traction additives you guys use? I have been using WD-40 and it works well but was wondering if maybe one of those TC traction compunds or my offroad buggy grip will do any better? Also, do the traction compounds for sedans help the tire grip before it gets to temp? Or, will it soften the tire over the whole run? Thanks for your help guys.

Go with Paragon. It will make a big difference throughout the run, not just when the tires are warm.

Default Pic Of My New Paintjob

Ok, this is how I spent my Saturday night this weekend. Been wanting a Mazda 6 for a while, so I painted one up last night. Nothing spectacular, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
