I am using all standard kit settings, with front spool. The car understeers terribly after pack 2, which I think is caused by the high front tyre wear caused by the spool. Unlike my old car, it never has as much steering with new tyres, but the steering deteriorates very mildly with each pack, in fact the Kawada has more steering then my D06 after the second pack onwards.
The Kawada has front gear diffs though. I was just wondering if a front gear diff will solve my problem or is there something else I can do.
I think you will need to post more of your setup . . . I have to assume with sorex40R's you are running on asphalt. There are quite a number of good setup's online for asphalt, personally we run indoor carpet so not sure I can help with that. I would assume that using a front gear diff will cut down on tire wear. I'd probably recommend testing your theory out first though . . . rotate your tires front to back and see if it really is tire wear causing you to lose rear steering . . . I am surprised that tires would wear that quickly.

check the droop screws they can loose settings simply driving the car around, because the screws don't grip very well on the arms.

Does anyone know how to get a hold of the guys at VBC Racing USA? I don't see a phone number of the website. I have a problem with a order and they aren't responding to emails. PM me.

Try thier facebook page. Negative comments on a FB page usually get a real quick response.

+1
Some of the kits had slight oversized droop screw holes causing droop to change. I didn't experience it with 3 kits builds.
If the droop is changing, the D07 arms are spot on.

I just got a dynamics kit, can someone tell me what the different shock bladders do and what conditions each should be used in? Coming from XRAY I have not had any experience using different shock oil bladders and would like to know what track conditions you would use each type in.

The hardness of the bladder affects rebound... Easyer to set 0-rebound with the clear bladders.

Yep, I had the exact same issue, outdrive hole too small and bearing wouldnt go on. Luckily Ryan is hooking me up with a new diff housing

The included aluminum outdrive would not fit on one side (so I reamed the diff housing out using a lexan reamer), the screws holding the diff halves together would not fully tighten (I tightened them as far as I could), and the outside, large bearing would not fit on one side (I shaved a lot of material away by hand using a hobby knife).

Has anyone else run into these problems? I can't really ship the diff back, nor order a new housing in time for the race on Saturday. Luckily, with a lot of hand-fitting work it fits, though.

Should I let VBC know about this problem? The diff that came with the kit worked just fine.

I'm experiencing quite a bit of wear in my hardened steel outdrives. How often are you guys finding that you have to replace them? I wish there was an option for outdrives that allowed the use of pin cushions.

Dennis, you have the means and the equipment to mill them to accept blades

I have a feeling everyone may have a different answer to this, how do you build zero rebound shocks?
1. 1mm hole in shock cap?
2. How much of a gap between the shock bottom connector and the shock bottom cap?
3. How do you like to put on the shock body cap do you push the oil sealer cap onto the shock body and then screw on the shock body cap, or do you put the oil sealer cap into the shock body cap, and then screw the hole thing onto the shock body.
Feel free to add any tips, hints.
