Yes, with low roll center we have more roll, but the handling is more predictable.
High roll center, on high bite carpet, makes driving very nervous and unpredictable the roll over.

At least, it worked for me.

Hi. Bought my TCXX today! I noticed that main chassis has a slightly different cut-out than in official HB pictures. My chassis has straight motor cooling holes, not one big hole that is shown and some triangles near the chassis center are missing. Is that normal ?
Sorry, can't add photos yet

The picture of the chassis in the bag is the HB TCX not TCXX

I finished building my TCXX last night and right away I noticed that the rear diff is leaking from both the grub screw and the four screws that keep it together. Is there anything I can do to make it not leak or could I replace it with a ball diff?

When I built mine, I left the grub screw out until the 4 main screws were in and tight. The grub screw hole acts as an overflow. After the excess oil had drained and the grub screw put in its place, no further oil leaked out.

I've not suffered from any leaks in the 4 months that I've been using the car.

Ok the problem here may be then that I overfilled the diff. I was advised by another user that I should fill the diff until the oil is half way up the gears. Is this the incorrect way? Forgive my ignorance, this is my first time building a kit like this.
