Less rear droop so the car can't unload the rear tires as much off throttle.

Thanks to all who responded to my question above the other day. I had already tried a few things that were suggested, but wanted some other people's opinions.

During the main I did widen the front end, took away a bit of rear droop, and used less traction compound on the front end. The changes made the car much more predictable through the corners, enough that I was able to lead for the first minute. Check out the video below - I'm in the Green/White Pegasus Mustang.

Has it been done or not ??? Hopefully losi will make another batch of LCD's soon... Meantime use old LCD drives with Amsoil off road grease on the outdrives to slow the inevitable wear.......

I have read some of the posts about the lack of a gear diff for the tc4. Has anyone made a successful one from an existing gear diff? If so can you share your info...please.

The only one that could have fit was a stock-only lightweight gear diff made for a TOP touring car years ago. None are known to still exist.

You don't really need a gear diff, the ball diff works just fine unless you need to put a 4-turn to the ground consistently lap after lap.

The only thing to worry about with ball diffs is the quality of the grease you put in there..... There are a ton of different grease mixes out there, and finding the right tacky , smooth, and consistent grease can be difficult.... Maybe someone should come out with ceramic diff plates....lol....
