ChrisAttebery- The surface is a smooth, clay track with med-high bite. When the traction comes up, I switch to HB Beams. This setup is an all around easy to drive setup. If its got too much roll, Go up in Shock Oil or try the next stiffer sway bar. Several people have tried the Aaron setup around here and it does not fit their driving style. I have came up with this setup that works very well. Just another option for SetUps that I thought I'd post.

Going down in front diff fluid and sway bar will still help with this anyway. When I went from a Slash to my SCTE, I had to get used to less turning as well.

What I've found works good for me on tight, low speed 180 turns is run at it hard on the throttle, then full brakes while turning close to the end of the divider. This unloads the rear suspension (transferring weight to the front tires) and the truck would swing around the pipe a lot sharper than any other method I've tried.

I'm still running grease though. No diff fluid for me as I like the feel it has now.

I haven't seen anyone modify suspension components for more steering yet either.

Have you tried reducing the rear toe? Lighter diff oils will help at low speeds.

Ridley has modded his CVDs and front arms to allow more throw, but it's a bit of work.

I want to know if anyone has a solution to decrease the turning radius and the utmost slowest speed. Like is there any what to grind the knuckles, C-Hubs, etc....

Unfortunately this truck at low speeds cannot turn a tight arc at low speeds. I'm talking like 5-10% throttle at most. Where I race is tight and technical, VERY tight. We have 2 corners that are 180's that come one right after at very low speed. Good tires and such, just not enough steering through (probably down 25% on the AE Truck

Anyone have the part numbers to the whole diff....for both FR/BACK and Center?

Going to get a new set to rebuild and setup with different fluid.

Look on e-bay. I see brand new, never run complete diffs on there that sell for less than you could buy all the parts for.

Nope, you have to buy the housing, gaskets and shims and then the gears. Sucks!

I actually have the shim kit and 1 gear kit, also just got the light weight outdrives. So all i need is the housing correct?

It looks like the soon to be released Tekno axles will allow additional steering. I am waiting to stop at a friends to see if he can bevel the inside of the stock stub axles to allow for the additional steering. Did Ridly post any pictures of his mods, I would like to see how much material he removed.
