Default Kanai guy's! I need your help!

I have a brand new Kyosho Kanai 3 that I built over the winter.
I ran it, and it was a little swervy in loose dirt.
I now want to install torsen diffs in the front and center.
I get several part #'s and don't know what is right or wrong.
I figured on of you K3 experts could help me out with the correct part #'s for Ofna super torsen.
Thanks in advance.

in most cases a torsen diff will make the car handle worse I would save your money.

try this setup I found on the starting grid it should get you in the ballpark

Front end: New Shocks with 1.4 pistons(white) 70wt Associeted oil.

Full travel

Blue springs, upper and lower "A" Block (red Kit Block)(old "a" block,
not the new front shock tower with red upper "a" to match) I use the
Plastic upper "A" works fine,with the Racers edge front tower.

22 Degree Caster Block.
Few degrees tow out.

15mm of ride hight clips in the front,One 10mm and one 5mm,(or if your
using the Racers edge shock bottoms,13mm clips because the bottoms add

Rear end: new shocks with 1.4(white) with 40 wt Associeted oil
8mm ride hight clips(or 6mm with racers edge bottoms)

full travel

Rear 3 degree tow in,2degree(gold)Anti-squat, Rear hubs back.
All shock and camber postions stock Kit positions..

Diff oil 5000,7000,1000 front to rear standard(non lsd

also try crimefighter tires they seem to work everywhere

Why would Torsen's make the car handle worse? I just picked up a Hyper 7 pro kit, and it has front and center torsens. I havent finished building the car yet, but it was my belief that torsens help you get the power to the ground better.

Is this the case?

they work best on smooth tracks but make the car unpredictable on a bumpy track.
