Now that's interesting, I bought a milled out chassis from someone and tried it on friday, used the same exact setup as on my non milled car and it was way squirely, I though it was because of the 3.5 less ounces, but now maybe you're making me think it was the flex???

Remember: The same springs on a heavier car will act softer than they will if they are on a lighter car... that could explain the "squirly" feel you experienced

Hey Randy I was thinking the same thing it has been quiet in here Anyway I little info on me I went mod at the local track for the first time this last weekend tried both a 10x1 and a novak brushless ss58000 I LOVE my brushless but for performance reasons I think I am going to have to go for the brushed motors also put in my black belt it is awsome. Next step trying to copy Todds Milling on his Chassis

is your track asphault? I've grown to like running spools. They give you awesome rip coming out of the corners but you loose a little lowspeed steering. But you make some setup adjustments to gain more steering. Check out Todd's thread, he's got an awesome setup from the Reedy race on there for a spool.

I built mine with steel outdrives and JB Welded them onto a 41 tooth pully. The 41 tooth pully is one of the things that will help you gain turn in with the spool.

I don't see why Losi doesn't make a spool. It would be a lot easier to design and produce one of those than a ball diff or a one-way.
