I haven't seen anyone complaining about any problems related to drive shaft angle on here (and you know somebody would've by now). It appears to me to be a solution to a problem that doesn't really exist.

Just a little side note on this weird china discussion going on in here...

I work in design. I design things that operate at over 1000 deg F and have a tendancy to blow up and kill alot of people if they arent built with the proper materials. I have NEVER seen a company willing to accept our product if it is made by materials supplied from China. In fact only Japanese material is acceptable from the Asian area. Additionally, it is very, very rare that we can get a customer to accept our product if it is manufactured in our China factory, even if the materials are sourced from North America (only a mexican company has ever accepted it and only once).

Of course, in here we are talking about little toy cars, so take it for whatever you will, but chinese materials and/or workmanship is not highly regarded in any product in any field of manufacturing. Of course it does keep our costs for our hobby down too.

Regards,
Proud BCE owner

7-5-3 is a great option as traction gets high. Tames down the car some and helps it be a little more stable. 5-5-3 is a better general diff setup though. The Lane setup was posted after we ran on a track they literally glued together with what looked like school glue. Traction was pretty high as we were basically running on a layer of rubbery material.

All the other arguments on here are why I stopped checking in. One good relevent question per page and the rest is bickering about nonesense. No one is forcing anyone to buy anything here and the info is out there. Make an informed choice that lets you sleep at night!

Casper,
So which set up would you suggest I start out with on a pretty large 1/10th indoor track. It smooth and pretty sticky. If your not set up right your can definitely roll in the corners. I'm trying to determine what diff fluid to go with along with, springs, shock oil weight, ride height, everything. Thanks guys for all the help, I truly appreciate it.

If you like lots of steering 5K. If you like a car that is a little a little more stable and easier to drive 7K. Sounds like your track could go either way.

I tried running 3-10-2 today. I kind of liked it.

Are there any negative handling characteristics when having such large differences in diff oil?

Something like this will react more like a 10th scale electric buggy where you can adjust the front and rear diff and other than that, you have 4 wheel drive. Just rotates through the corner a little differently is all. The lighter oils will tend to drive through the whole turn. With the heavy center, you likely want to drive in hard, brake, swing, and then stab the throttle.

Sounds like how I drive now! Perfect!

So should I just run the whole Aaron Lane setup?

Does anyone know of any plans by Losi, or any aftermarket parts, to replace the dogbones? Or is there anything, short or grease, that can be done to quiet the dogbones?
