20 million with some 2.5 mill to fill in the gaps, as thick as possible.

Honestly it was probably slower than a spool but that race had extremely sticky curbing that was tough to drive on. The gear diff made the car very easy to drive especially in heads up racing which was my focus since the car already had enough speed in terms of laptimes.

So in other conditions a front spool is probably the way to go?

If it was a club race I would probably have kept the spool.

Spool is 99.9% of the time the way to go. Normally if you think a front diff is good, if you put the spool back in and move some weight forward it will be better (since the diff is heavier than the spool)

Top deck for medium to high grip asphalt would it be better to run spilt top decks or the stock 2.0mm top deck. Also has anyone try the
