I am using the 43 tooth on the original 808 (08) version. My set up is a combination of box stock and Rocco's starting set-up but with 35 front and 30 rear oil. silver springs, 5 hole rear pistons. stock sway bars. The thing with me though is that I take almost all my turns off power, because I still am a sucky driver so I roll most of my turns. The diffs free up so much off power that the car will turn on a dime. I would imagine that the more power you take into and during your turns the less stearing you will have, as that is the whole premise of the active diff

I think thath I should change tires - I use hammers - just check on google- couse I can't add urls, and I think that it's not good for clay and hard track. Maybe I should buy hole shots? Smth from proline? Thanks for help.

I've changed diff oils to 3/5/2 and it's really better but not perfect.
Our poish champ said that it's propably tires.

So my question is what tires buy?

Default Diff burninnnn

Too light on the diff oil. You will shorten the life of those diffs.....5-7-3.

Default Hmmm

the front takes a lot of power under acceleration due to the weight transfer, and the center takes a beating. 5-7-4 maybe. I just know that on every car I've built for me or friends loves 5-7-3. Even 6-7-4, is good. If you like it then that's the most important thing....Happy driving....
