Slipper spool seems to be working. Tried in front of the house which is very abrasive blacktop and it does not slip under power, although i can turn the wheels by hand in the car. Now i just have to see how well it holds up! By the way this is the first spool i have ever run, we cant run one ways in the series e are doing for RCGT. what should i expect steering wise? I think i read it will have less turn in than a one way and a diff but more exit steering than a diff? Is this correct? Thats kind if what i have been feeling but its hard to tell with out being on the track.

Default diff screw?

Will the pro-spec diff screw fit in the standard diff and if so is it stronger than the standard diff screw? I would buy a pro-spec diff, but everywhere I looked is out of stock.

No, the pro-spec diff screw does not fit the 1st gen. diff.

Call Billy at Speedworld, he had 3-4 pro diffs hanging on the wall.

Looks like Volker took the German Indoor race with what everyone is assuming is the new car. Trying to find better pics, but so far only one.

the current set up

a friend was telling me i should mess with the camber settings so i did and it improved the handling a lot using these cheap 35 shore foam tires
and this is the body i use, i don't think it's legal to use in the mod class races?

so i might have to get a legal sedan body

I have watched the choices of items in which you have chosen over the last couple weeks and was hoping the others who were helping you would point out certain things.You are new to the racing portion of the hobby and your relatively local to me so I thought I would try my hand at helping.If your plan is to do competitive racing,pick yourself up some of the new Speedworld Sorex Premounts as these will be the tire to run at almost any track local to you and they work.From there you will need to find a setup that works.If your ever in the Norcal Hobbies area on a race day,I will personally set your car up for a baseline setup that will work.Pick yourself up a Mazda 6 or Mazda Speed 6 body and you also may consider running the 17.5-13.5 classes before you run Modified sedan.If you plan on just blowing up and down your street at terminal velocity,please feel free to keep your current setup on your car and ignore anything I have said so far either way have fun!

Yes the body and tire change is a must for racing.
I have 3 sets of foams I'm still going to go through before I pick up some 24mm slick premounts.
As for testing... I've been testing the car at a business center parking lot
I don't plan on ever using this car to "blowing up and down your street at terminal velocity"
If I wanted to do that I would have just gotten a RTR and throw in a fast motor in it.

I set up a nice practice track with good turns (business center parking lot)
With that I am able to see how the car reacts and tune the car.
So far I have done about 10 runs and no crashes.
I don't plan on switching to 17.5 to 13.5 anytime soon.
Although 3.5 or "mod" class is advance and fast... I can handle it.

I don't plan on racing at Norcal Hobbies anytime soon.

If it's any track I'll go to it would be Speed World Raceway.
Thanks for the advice

If you are coming to SWR this weekend, Billy will be out of town but I will be running the shop and getting the track ready for practice. And if you need any help don't hesitate to ask.


Racenut, are you going to run RCGT at the Reedy??

He is all yours.

If I run anything it will be 13.5.Although RCGT is a great class for club level stuff,I already see the ringer mentality building for Reedy.Not my thing.
