Thumbs up Diff tunning guide

I think it is about time that we put a diff tunning guide on RC Tech. Outside of engine tunning, I think that diffs are the most difficult for most people to understand (myself included).

Can we get some feedback on how changes to the front,center and rear diffs will effect the handling of our vehicles?

Please be as specific as possible (IE changing to a certain set up will effect corner entry,mid corner or corner exit on or off throttle).

Thanks!

Good info above but can anyone give real world feedback? Looking for things such as "7-10-3 will provide nice rotation of vehicle in turns but tends to diff out in the front thus making the truggy a bit squirly on loose tracks when you jump on the throtle at corner exit".

because every car has different suspension geometry, weight distribution and gearing, what works on the MP9 won't work on a losi 2.0 or other cars for that matter. Diff tuning also as a lot to do with how you drive. The above guide is very good, drive your car a tune according to your driving. I remember when I first stated, a very good friend and very fast driver would help me setup my car, a I could not drive it, till I started to understand setups and tuned the car for my self. And I tweak my setup during the day, as the track gets blown, and from track to track.
