food for thought.
Thanks. Might have to try a one way and see how it works for me. I like the spool but finding it is a little hard on front tires. Mainly my left front but our track has some high speed right hand turns.

Do you believe this is suitable for full on modified racing?(7 and 8 turn motors) and also do you know how far away diffs for full on modified racing are?

The spool has been tested up to 9T mods ..... these hold up really well .

The version 2 diff should be done within a month.. I belive and these will have the same build up parts as the Steel diffs... but it will use the D-Rings and T-nut

SPOOLS.

The spool everyone seems to use is the IRS one.This is an alloy one as everybody knows. It's supposed to be used in conjunction with the IRS pin cushion drive shafts.

Well, as we all know, the pin cushions are a waste of time. For the last 2 years I have been using the IRS spool with Corally Assassin drive shafts and blades and this has been much better, but you have to keep an eye on the blades and replace them regularly if you don't want to damage the spool.

On my Yoke BD I use a steel spool made by RW Racing. I used it for a full season on my CGM and it's still like new. No need for blades, the kit drive shafts work fine, though yes, it is a bit heavier. But is my driving so good that the weight would hamper my lap times ? Definately not, so the sooner I find a steel spool for the TC4 the better.

Unless of course the Pal spool and blades are strong enough to take the hammering of 7 turn motors.

7T motor....shouldn`t be a problem... they teflon blades have been beefed up quite a bit over the last version..so they can handle the extra power
