Default Brakes

Sewerdog,

Cole is correct having brakes on the front and rear is for looks or balance only it does not effect front or rear braking alone it effects them equally.

The 2 speed is NOT A DIFF.

Think about it for a min u will get it.

Cole here is another suggestion

Run the front diff with a Very Thick front diff oil 120 or higher and adjust the steering from the rear with 30 or 40 weight. or whatever you want to try. Works great for us. Kinda like what a common TC with front and rear diffs would do

Give it a shot worst you can do is blast me if you dont like it I have tough skin

Options are Good

Wha??? Like 30k-40k in the rear or literally 30wt-40wt? Blowing my mind right now haha.

I tried the thick fluids on my GT1 last year, didn't really do so well on our tight tracks. But I may try it with this GT2.

If there was a center differential like a buggy/truggy then you could adjust brake bias, but the 2 speed shaft is a solid shaft, so no brake bias.

Do 10k in the rear diff. Then adjust the feel of the car by changing the front diff fluid around. 30k-60k is about the range. I've really liked the feel of 40k in the front with 10k in the rear.
Thank you cole, that makes sense now,ill give what you say a try and let you know

Yes on the differential gears, no on the diff case. I've never had a problem with the new Kyosho differential cases. The old ones were all plastic and the right side bearing holder would bust off. But now they have been updated to partially metal construction, 10 times more reliable. You could probably use that metal case, but I don't think I would bother.

I'll have to add 2 diff cups to my order. I have a gt1 that I wanna make race ready. Currently it's stock gt1 with front swing shafts,20* c hubs and kyosho special turn buckles.

What chassis braces should I go with? I will be running the gt1 chassis so I think my only option is the kyosho round tub style. Dragon racing (eBay company) has aluminum ones but I'm unsure if they will fit
