Default parts

Anyone have any idea on when the new option parts or even a good supply of replacement parts will hit the states? Amain and Stormer seem to be the only place online in the states and they don't have the option parts.

pulled the trigger on an LE kit tonight, can't wait to get building. Will be my first TC since the 2008 carpet nats. What springs come with the kit? Is there a base rubber/carpet setup out there to start with or is the kit setup what most are starting with?

stock 2.25 chassis that is in the new kits.. why would you want to run a diff in the front? the spool is just so smooth with no chatter.. does not bind the front end up either.. i have never run 2 diffs in any of my onroad cars.. i always have run a spool or a one-way.. martin might have the answer for you.. jeremy

I take it you're talking a front gear diff? If your on really tight tracks and you need some more turn in this can be an advantage, when I tried this it really settled the car down and made it more driveable with less front wheel chatter. Although I did go back to a spool because I liked the pull that the spool provided. You're setup shouldn't really change much going from one to the other, its more the diffing that's letting it turn the corners easier.
