Default Front Bias diff. setup.

mostly i see a rear wheel bias diff setup... 5-7-3, 5-5-3 etc..
(lower viscosity in the rear i.e spin faster in rear, given equal weight split n equal traction)

has anybody try front bias setup ..may be 3-7-5, i mean lower viscosity on front diff...
IMO wld be suitable for loose dry track.. no?

Trust me, as some one whos rear diff blew, dont EVER run a front wheel drive oriented buggy. It makes it much slower and puts more stress on the diff and center diff because its pulling the car not pushing it. Also, turning decreases dramaticly.

actually i tried that a couple of years ago when i was racing my xray xb8 ec, there was a setup circulated like that in the inet (3f-3m-5r) , i think someone had named it "the cure for lose rear end" . it seemed to work for me...
