The stiffer one will go into the front.

12 nitro cars vs 20 electro cars !!!

As always, we raced all the day with only one set of the same tyres for everybody...

This final round was awesome with the big Tombola !!!

Some lots:
- HobbyTech STR8 GTe Race Roller
- 2 Losi Micro cars
- 2 micro quadcopter

30 drivers were very happy to win nice presents!!

Enjoy the Gallery. Some nice videos to come.

Au revoir.

Sorry new to on road by why would you want a locked diff?

Well, a center diff is good for off-road use because at some times, the front wheels may need to spin at a different rate than the rears. Since on-road cars never have this happen (since the wheels never leave the ground), locking the center diff keeps the motor's power from being sent, biasedly, to the front or rear. It basically ensures that the front and rear wheels are being powered the same. Notice how the Ofna on-road cars have center spools rather than center diffs.

My friends and I are looking to get into 8th scale onroad. Couple of us have Mugen ECO MBX6 buggys now. Does somebody sell a conversion kit to use the buggy for road racing?

I could be wrong, but you may have to piece meal this project. Here is a link to some shock towers to make your MBX6 closer to what you are looking for.

The fact the Steve makes those says there are others who have done it. I am sure someone will chime in with more infor for you. It is a pretty fun class IMO.

No idea on converting a MBX-6 into a GT8 but if you do you guys should come down to Toledo to the Woodsville Mall track. We race electric on Saturdays.
I'm from MI too and we go down there. It's a lot of fun.

Socal guys, there will be a GT8 Race at GLARCR, this Saturday ( practice) and Sunday (race). $10 for practice amd $10 entry fee for race. FG Supply will be on site selling PMTs at 15% off.

The track is quite large and has plenty of room for these cars. Come on out.

I always run much thicker in the front diff. That will give the car punch off the corners by limiting the front diff action(wheel spin). Most 1/10 sedans run a solid front(spool) axle. It also depends on your driving style and traction available. Same goes for a center diff. Some drivers prefer a free center diff as it make it easier to drive on low traction circuits. Open diffs apply the power to the tire that has least traction making the chassis settle down rather than spin out. We have pretty good bite so I like a limiting diff upfront and a spool in the center. I like black moly lube in the rear diff because of it's light roll resistance and anti-wear qualities. A limiting rear diff will make the car real lose into the corners because it will act like applying rear brake.

Thanks for the advice. It helps me visualize what I want/hope the car will do as I run the track. What car do you run and would you mind sharing your diff numbers? Thanks.
