He'd help, but only tell you half the story, and then blame you when your not psychic and/or his bull gets found out...

Yeah, you forgot to mention I would charge for assistance, Mr Tryhard.

You know the answer to your signature is to use italics?

Is it possible to get un-even tyre wear left right when you run a a track (clock wise or counter clockwise?)
I had new tires for Sunday and we ran clockwise and the left hand side seemed to have worn down a tiny bit more than the right. Especially at the front. Camber and all were equal after checking multiple time.
Could the fact I was running a ball diff up front impact the wear seeing that it allowed both wheel to spin at different rates ?

Thanks!

Because I didn't have a gear difd yet and I fancied to give it a go haha. It was extremely tight, but have replaced it with a spool now.

It is possible, if for example, you have long right-hand sweepers at the end of straights. Those layouts definitely wear the Front-Left tires faster.

Right thank you! That was exactly the case, there was a right hand sweeper leading onto the main straight followed by a long right hand sweeper at the end.

Who uses tyre warmers on carpet ?

Without them, the car lacked grip and was sliding a bit. With the warmers, I could hear the tires screach a bit and push the car harder.

So far i have the fastest laptime at my club, i used to run a spool up front but switched to a one-way and improved my laptime with 0.3s.
I'm running a muchmore Fleta euro Blinky ESC and a muchmore 10.5T motor with 0 of timing (motor timing isn't allowed at the belgian nationals)
The second fastest guy is 0.2s slower then me and he's using the same ESC/motor combo as me and his car is a yokomo BD7 wich is mostly considered as a faster car then a TRF418.
Just saying that sometimes a ball diff or a one-way can improve your laptimes

I also use a one way sometimes in 17.5 blinky. Works a charm as I hardly brake but I get better turn in on the infield and also the same power out of the corner as the spool runners.

It does fit a specific way of driving though, you have to be smooth on the brakes.

416/7 one ways are cheap to pick up as well

I also occasionally use a ball diff in the rear. I allows me to tune the car easily, especially if its at a track that I haven't raced on before. Once the car feels good in practice with the ball diff I can then feel the resistance and use a similar oil in the gear diff to match it.

I personally still prefer ball diffs. complaints were they get dirty, discs were worn out, balls flat spotted.

Now we have gear diffs and 90% leak. Then we have to select different weight fluids.

So In the end, were still constantly rebuilding diffs lol.

I predict ball diffs will be back in the near future. One manufacturer will come up with some gimmick update to them and we will be suckered into hopping on the band wagon again.
