Garen, I agree with you. I have the Fioroni Diffs and alot of other upgrades. The Diffs do work and you are EXACTLY right, they are a Tuning option. In some cases that I have ran them, the buggy was a damn bullet!! I use the front and center.

I get tired of hearing, "thats way to expensive", "you wasted your money" blah, blah, blah. It's my money!!! Nobody is forcing anyone to buy them. Fioroni is not ripping people off. Fioroni is NOT crap out of Taiwan.

Will The kysho or other diff Fit in the Jammin X2? I have heard good things about these diffs, an think it might help my X2 in certain conditions, My main complaint is too much over rotation when turning on power, does anyone think that running this type of diff in the front will help?

I have covered all the standard set up changes...right now 5-5-2 is working well, but not optimal.

I know the Kyosho diffs and pinion gear fit in my OFNA DM-1 GT car, and that car uses the same diffs as the Jammin X1, so if your X2 uses the same diffs as the X1, it should fit. You might want to double check that with someone else though.

Default Money Well Spent

I drove my Fioroni modded Storm for the 2nd time today, the first on a track. I agree now that my Storm Center Traction diff, although several model years old, would still be worth the money. It made my Storm much more driveable on a bone-dry track. I think with a properly wetted track this car will be awesome with this diff in the center. I'll post again when I've ran it on a good, wetted track and tell you how it does compared to my old, stock Storm.

Garen, What track conditions should the diffs be used on.

years ago, i've been using a front torsen diff in my mugen mbx-5
it wasn't a fioroni but a nuova faor - price was about the same
since this car was heavy like a tank and didn't steer too well into corners compared to others, the torsen diff really helped in dialing in some agility.
the car would steer into corners very well and coming out of corners one could jam the throttle and when the diff locked up, it pulled the car right out of the turns. on the other hand it needed a much smoother driving style (less blipping the throttle), since blipping made the diff to load/unload permanently which made the car inconsistent and nervous.

The diffs make the car more responsive so on a blown out rutted track the car may become nervous as the car will feel like it has more 'punch' and response. On smoother tracks they work great and on tight tracks they work great. Having said that, I have seen them used on very rough surfaces and the drivers were very happy, so I guess the answer is you have to try on a variety of surfaces and see where they provide an advantage for you.
