Use the silver and gold springs with the spool and sway bars, drive around the corners on power just a little. With the diff you can cost around the corner, the spool is faster if you drive it right. IMHO
Good luck and try Stew Noble's set up (all of it) Let us know how it works for you.

im running stew nobles setup right now and its working awsome for me, some of the local guys I race with regularly say they don't like the way it handles but it works well for me.

The only things that are different are the lack of swaybars and the spool. Instead I have no swaybars and a front ball differential instead. Im not a GREAT driver and I crash a few times every race, I know with a spool Im gonna break alot of parts.

With the one-way you may break more parts but with the spool it's not much different then the diff to drive, I used to run the front diff tight and liked it so I went with the spool and it's nice to drive. With rubber tires it's not hard on your car.

i saw them at last years reedy race and they felt really fragile like you said. in the mean time, i've found that the plastic cyclone-s deck with some dremel work and other mods adds more flex when running rubber tire

I'll be doing some testing with different diff's next club race. I find the best way to see hwo the car reacts is to try each diff for every race then check lap times.

So my first qual, i will try the front ball diff and then on the next i will swap in the spool. We'll see!

I will bet you will be faster with a spool, and the sway bars

I think it may take more then one qualifiers to pick up on the different throttle timings in the corners so don't give up on the spool to fast. Try more lightly on power maneuvers then you normally would do, You should get some Wow!! corners right away.
