Yeah, it was odd in the first turn, we were all bunched up there and I was right up into Joel for the first two laps until all that junk got off the front tires. Then, his ride was clearly better and he and Cuffs started to put some distance between us.

Jon you are right... the 3rd, 4th and 5th qualified cars had more motor than Jeff and Joel, so you guys were right up their a$$ in that sweeper. It could have been a real mess, got sorted out pretty quickly and then for a bit there you were pressuring Joel and forcing him to throw the car deeper into the turn to pull away.

Sounds like i missed a good time...

As far as diff grease I would say anything works fine, losi, ae, xray is a little odd, but i am sure it works fine, xray diffs work with like 2 diff balls in them anyway, lol.

BTW jon- its all about the spool! talking to butter it is a big no no to run dual diffs on asphalt, lol. like a mazda 6 body on carpet (freddy, lol)

Spool at Jackson??? I would think a 1 way would be much better. Spool for West Chester? Yeah I would run that

Tried the spool--didn't like it as much as the one-way at Jackson. I took the front diff out after the mains and stuck the one-way in. Liked that a lot.

Jon - Did you have glitching problems at Jackson with your 3PK?
I'm still happy to report that I have not seen one glitch with my spectrum system and 3PK. At WC, people were getting all kinds of hits, but not me

For the reedy race no one ways, either spool or diff though, so thats why at least I am not eveing trying a one way since I cant run it anyway, for the express race I might bust one out.
