Thanks Mike. Im running the Yokomo bd-5 Duffs now, but the cheaper price of the associated makes them attractive. I don't know how badly the TOP bones will fit. I use the Associated blades already in the Yokomo diff after 30s of drilling and sanding.

What spacers are you guys using for the toe? The plastic spacers don't cut it.

The TOP bone ends were a lot smaller IIRC from when we were matching them up when I fit the TOP spool in my car. Not sure if youd be able to rig it up to work

Yup - works good. 30wt oil, not a leak to be seen. One of the sides of the diff is slightly deformed (mold defect?), but it has no effect on the diff. It's not just this diff, either. The diffs a friend received (3 of them) all look the same.

Thanks for the help. Does anyone use both front and rear gear diffs for carpet? What is the advantage of using a rear gear diff as opposed to a ball diff?

Well, racing modified it is way more relaxing than the Ball Diff. No need to rebuild every few packs, especially if you are as easy as I am on the Trigger Less slip and better acceleration.


Yep, running Gear Diff Rear and Front on technical/tight/fast High Grip Carpet Track, Rubber Tires and Modified. Feels better in the Hairpins and overall easier to drive.

Used the Yokomo Diffs so far and switched the rear with the Associated. Used wt30 compared to the WT60-80 in the yokomo. Performance is the same and no leaking so far .

Just take note though, the chassis and top deck he used was aftermarket and he was also trying some funky things with the arms and the mounting of the arms. His car was quite different to a standard car.

I ran almost a standard TC6 with a couple of Reflex racing parts on it.
My lap times were the same as Andrews but my driving is not as good as Andrews. He is a very consistent quick driver. So I have attached my setup sheet as well which should be a great starting point for lowish grip Asphelt.
I finished in 7th place. The difference between 2nd to 9th was very small.
Thanks for the setup!

If a customer is unhappy with a product or it is not working correctly AE will replace it free of charge.

Very interesting setup. Juho is running a very wide front end, narrow rear end, and VERY low rear roll center. I would think that car would push like crazy... although I don't know what the spring rates are and the shock positions are very different from most setups. It appeared to have plenty of steering in the videos.

Edit: A little more research reveals that the Yokomo Blue springs are 12.12 lbs and the Pinks are 14.93 lbs(Yokomo Hot Pinks are 13.1... but Im assuming he is running the std Pink springs). This is even more interesting now. A very rear biased setup in regards to suspension geometry, but a front biased setup in regards to roll stiffness(lackthereof, more specifically).

I'm rebuilding my shocks with the RSD components following Keven's IIC superstock setup. What length in millimeters should I build them? Thanks.

i think keven posted on his thread 63,7 mm.

Noticed also that Juho used inboard toe out, something i played back in the days of my Hb Tc. Does anyone tried this in yours tc6? Strange grip that track for sure, hagberg talked about inconsistent grip. Also look at the tyres used.

I just received my AE Gear Diff yesterday. It was deformed also. Although i dont think it will affect its performance i wish it wasnt deformed. Im debating on taking it back and reordering one but it took awhile to get it in the first place.
