Thanks guys...

Well... What I'm looking for isn't exactly a drift. I don't know what to call it but I'm the late-braking-and-aim-for-late-apex-combined-with-a-little-bit-of-throttle-control type. HAHA! I just drive faster like that. Right now, my depth perception isn't so good but I'll get better.

I'll start reading the "bible" right now. =)

Thanks,

p@dDy

Why don't you try some rear brake bias? That'll work out You'll figure out how to do that

I used to run that car with 5-5-2.. seemed to be the best setup for me.

lol... it's already set towards the rear. I put a garbage servo in there though so I get some slip on the brakes. I already have an idea as to how long my braking distance is at full speed with a shitty servo. Too bad I can't apply brakes and throttle at the same time. It's way easier to control tire slippage if I could.

to loosen the bevelgear in the diff
just empty, tap it once and let the diffhousing stand some 30 seconds
or a bit more
with the gear facing down
the gear will loosen itself out off the grease
and it will fall almost from its own...

try 3500-5000/3500/5000 also in 808's

Is that what you do for your TQ? I had to keep slamming mine against the table. lol I'll try that next time.

What will the characteristics of this setup be?

yes
I found out by accident, tired of struggling with it
I let the diff rest on his base a while , and the gear just fell out
when I took it in my hands to try again.....

for the xb8, it's also imperative to use a 38 teeth front gear..
.. 3000 or 4000 up front is not too heavy and will not upset the rear
but use .1 down, caster insert to get more crispy steering and rotation
... 3000 in the middle is calming the rear down too
and gives power to the front wheels accelerating
.... 5000 in the rear really neals it in like magic but keeps it crispy
if you want the buggy to be more loose or sensitive, use 4/5/7 or 5/7/10
or 1000 rear, whatever, best always keep a 1-2-3 diff oils ratio
..... longest upper suspensionrods, shortest wheelbase, 3.5 rear camber
all together gives a accurate and nimble buggy

a TQ is not a EC but I honestly think it will work with any xray buggy...
HALEY, the australian driver, always uses a similar set-up, with 3000 in the middle
on his EC and even on his 808

lol So that's what happened.

It's still an XB8.. the base is the same I think. Just more tunability. I'll try the lower oils next time. I have to see how the car handles at the track tomorrow.

Thanks,
