I wouldn't say 4 bevels in the diff is nessasary but the "diff action" is far better in this format. My brother is getting around in 17.5 ok even with a very light diff however I liked the heavier oil and 4 bevels much better. The gears are cheap so I recommend trying it.

nice paint man, with the wheel wells, be good to run just a one colour job till you get setup, wheelbase changes wreck the wheel wells. haha Nice Job .

Best so far for wear and fit have been the SPECR BD5 White blades.

Did a bit of running today at my local club trying to find a well balanced base setup for this chassis for my local tracks. Made a few changes but one change was quite significant, being the screw between the top deck and motor mount. I found removing this with all the others in place gave a much better balance of grip front to rear. This was particularly noticeable in switchbacks (or s-bends) and hard braking while steering. If you race on asphalt, give it a try.

well i had a different experience with that. my screw actually fell out in practice, and i couldnt work out why my car wasnt handling as good. then i found the screw was missing. it will for sure add more flex, but i also feel it is a last resort effort to make the car work. id look at other things first before doing so. just from what i have felt, and found. it may work better on slower technical tracks, but not fast flowing tracks. it really unsettles my car into the sweeper at over 100K an hour.

removing the screw from that place could also cause meshing problems to i would think. with additional flex since the motor is then pnly supported by 2 screws,certainly worth a shot what ever help put the power down in corners

Surprising to hear that. Personally I am against flex, it just takes performance away from the car. This however gave the same lap time as with the screw in but planted the rear of the car. I have tried screws in and out before but just this one by itself seemed to work well. I'll get some more testing in this friday under different conditions so we will see how it translates there.

i have no problem putting power down out of corners. one thing im trying to find is a little more steering, but so minimal, im almost not too worried about it. but it wont stop me going out with a completely new setup come sunday.
