My setup is a work in progress. 100k in the center diff so and stock oil with red's up front and white springs in the back. I'm looking to do 40k in the front diff and 10k in the rear with the yellow springs up front.

Can the car turn in quick with the 120k you use in the front ?.

That's a nice option, it should be really quick with the 27T and 6s!. I'm working on getting a 40T ofna hyper 9 spur to work. It bolts up to the jammin diff, but the jammin outdrive has too much play, so I will need the hyper 9 outdrive.

Right now I'm using a 44T Kyosho spur, works well since it's plastic.

Can someone comment who has this car regarding the front and rear 'play' or looseness at the wheels,particularly at the wheel bearing area. How much play would you say your car has when moving the wheels up and down and side to side. I am almost ready to buy this car,but this bugs me(looseness)...so is it anything to be concerned about? Thanks,Huck

I run the nitro version as well as the electric. There is some play at the arms into the bulkheads. You can change the hinge pins to drill rods and ream the arms and blocks to get a perfet fit. Also if needed you can shim the arms tighter than what the kit spacers will do, think thin shims. No play in the bearings. Since it has pivot balls with adjusters in the hunbs, you can tighten them up to the point it will not move.

Just watch how tight you get all of these, as the suspension can/will bind if you get some grit in the suspension. If it starts handling strange, pull apart and clean.
