Hi Lord, the idea is simple actually, just to have less maintanance and maitanning more stable long run performance. The beauty of ball diff is we could adjust just like where we needed precisely + in S710 you could also adjust the slippage tightness
Most advance racers should like it better. Gear diff (was it called planetary diff on impulse era?) is more forgiving in our opinion in terms of usages. As for performance? well, there are many other thing in the car we could adjust to compromise.
Here is come the problem from where we stand in our part of the world. This toys cost a lot (our average nationwide household income consider at 1/4 to the US), no doubt some people like to somehow `rewarded` from those (a lot) xtra money they spent. How? mostly by winning the races (yes, A main) but that is not the case in this hobby. It`s not like paying someone to install state of the art car audio so you could win the IASCA of such thing. This point of view combined with regular or just for fun racers, we are forced to comes up with better system (according to our particular situation) to penetrate our local Serpent market better. Why better system? well, better human (the fingers) is the hardest part to do, better system is easier
in which we came up with those Rev5 in mind (this gear diff idea is not the main subject of Rev5
). So what we are hoping is they could enjoy the car more by driving it more in order to maximize their spending. 1st is to have fun, 2nd to win the races, 3rd our local serpent support = better market penetration (we certanly do hope so, Goldfingers especially
In case anyone have more info on which brand of car gear diff that is clostest match to S710 rear bulkhead space and rear belt placement, please share some lights
