I can see emulsions on a lighter vehicle, but our Fat Girls like bladders....kidding of course

If team drivers used 4 different tires in all 4 corners....most would do it also thinking it will make us faster.
I love you.

that would be alot of slop. imo
I would think you would have alot of play in the arms, and would be more prone to rip the arm apart?? but I might be completely wrong please let me know how it works out.

Steve is exactly correct...it's all personal preference. Too many times we see guys doing things because the next guy does it. You be the judge on what works for you. If you run faster with a certain setup...keep it.
There are a lot of blanket statements on what works best, I've learned it's best to do what works for me...if your a racer let the clock decide.

With that said lunsford makes the ti hinges for revo, so just get them at 8 dollars a set and cut them the right length for either stock or the snr hinge pin holders since they are thicker.

like i said they are a bit free, but people are drilling the arms anyways. it would be great if you can tap the ti rods and make them like the stock ones with 2 nuts on the outter hubs.

please let us know how it turns out

Anyone out there switch from a 5 5 3 to 3 3 2 diff fluid set-up? I had this truck working pretty good outdoors but now on a tight indoor track I'm having trouble getting around the 180's. I've gone to the thinnest front sway bar and moved the hubs all the way forward and this helped free up steering but overall made it feel loose. I'm thinking I should start with lighter diff fluid and tune from there. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.

I would not call this an ultrasonic cleaner, that is a different apparatus all together.
For guys looking for a real ultrasonic cleaner, I suggest going to HarborFreight, I own the model with a timer and it works great!
can i use motor spray or brake cleaner on it? i think it says you cant use flamable liquids.

Default Center diff outdrive wobble

I see everyone is more worried about upgrading their diff pins than worrying about the outdrive wobble. Whats it take to fix the wobble?

I agree. Im gonna try it and and check the lap times. But I have to find out what is needed to change to emulsion shocks from bladder shocks?
