The Fioroni rear diff has 40 degree ramps, whereas the front uses 120. I never got around to trying 120 in the front.
I'm with you Garen. I used the Xray Active Diff in front with standard 90 ramp. Added a lot much needed steering and power coming out of turns.

Did you use and X-Ray diff in a Kyosho Gt? How well did it fit?

I didn't say it wouldn't do this.. I just didn't like it and the clock told the same

However, I would be interested of trying a Torsen in front.

Fits fine. You need to add a couple of more shims on ring gear side.

Default New Kyosho 2 speed

Do the new Kyosho 2 speeds come pre-adjusted to the (I believe) 2.5 turns out???

Mine just arrived today - boy do they look nice! good aluminum machining and the gears look really good too!

I would like to know this as well.I have notice that the gt2 is longer and i would love to run the vette body on my dm-1 spec.Also is there or can i use the ofna jammin chassis to get the length for the kyosho bodies and still be in the ball park with the rules for gt class thanks.

I don't think there are any rules regarding the use of a truggy chassis to lengthen your car and run the longer bodies. I know there are rules against using a carbon chassis.
Will the DM-1 parts fit on a Jammin chassis?
I think Kyosho did it because the cars are more scale looking. Lots of guys think they handle better then the original length GT also.

Heres a picture of my ST-R converted to a GT-2. Not quite finished, major mods involved in doing this, the chassis needs milling for 2 speed clearance, tank moved, etc.
