This is what I'm finding, nobody really running this car, so development is taking longer as there's nobody to discuss ideas and setups with. By comparison, there's 4 or 5 guys all running the new Yokomo BD8, so their pace is getting better at a faster rate.
Having said that, I'm seeing good results and am keeping pace with the BD8's in my class. Last meet I was mostly experimenting with chassis flex and saw some good results.

Has anyone tried running a gear diff up front as well? I've got the parts to build one with, and was thinking maybe a 150k oil, to run in 21.5.

I think 300k is the heaviest I have, and my local is out of stock of 500k.

Another race day with my TF7, running 21.5 against a couple of fast regulars with a Yokomo BD8 and Xray T4 17.
Raised rear roll centre, and went to Kyosho red springs with option rear roll bar. Ended up under track record for the class, and car was very consistent. Easy to put where I wanted to on track. Running Bitty Design M410 body, with Rush 36X premounts. Air temp around 18 deg C.

Sounds like you could have uses some rush 32s.

Yes, I think a 32 would likely yield more speed, particularly early in the run. But with a couple of large events coming up which specify the Rush 36 as a control tyre, I want to keep working with it.
