When I say too free, think of it this way, tighter diff= tighter car through turns. Again this is just what I have witnessed at the track and not something that I have tried myself.

The building of really free ball diffs, that seems to be a competition in its self for many people, maybe not the best on tight indoor tracks? I run on a tight hard packed indoor track and a large open outdoor track. Should I run my diff tighter on the indoor track? 1/8-1/4 more than the outdoor track?

ok. I have a xxx-t mf2 and I have a JR z590 steering servo. Not the best but not the worst either. So when I turn it on the tires are straight. When I turn left the tires turn how they should, but when I turn right they only turn half way. Why is that and how do i fix it?

I have the same question too. HERE is the link to the track and I would like to see what setups you would do to a xxx-t mf2. (kinda like your xxxt cr only not as good handling)
