Check the For Sale Thread here, I think I saw one today that was like brand new for $350 with the battery strap and motor gaurd. Also try your local hobby shop or track, $389 is the lowest I have seen them, at Nexus or Stormer

Quick questions guys;

I noticed that the diff's on my EU T2 are relatively 'loose'. I normally run pan cars and we crank on our diffs. So I tightened my front and rear diff and little and noticed that my car pushed really bad. Could someone explain to me how to dail in diff set ups, or point me to some good articles. Cause and effect type explainations are always welcome!

Also, what happens with a loose belt vs a tight belt?

Thanks in advance!

TK,

The general rule of thumb with a rear diff is to run it as loose as possible without it slipping at all.

There is definately some worth in tightening your diff beyond this as far as a tuning aid goes... but generally speaking most people have bigger fish to fry setup-wise than miniscule changes to their rear diff tightness!

If your rear diff is set on the tight side it will cause your car to understeer... WAY too tight and it can cause your rear end to loose traction!

I suspect that your rear diff just might be set a bit too tight for your liking.

With regards to the front diff on the EU car I would generally see people running spools or one ways in the front... Running a diff up front can cause a number of unwanted problems... it will not pull out of the corners as hard as a spool or a one way... one of yoru front tires will tend to "diff out" causing you to loose power and in effect accelleration out of corners, etc.

That being said from an accelleration standpoint you want you front diff to be as tight as possible so that there is minimal slip.

The front diff being this tight can cause understeer into the corners though...a looser front diff will get into the corner harder than a tighter one.

I really recommend a spool up front for pretty much any rubber tire asphalt application.... you will have to make some other setup changes to get the steering feel back to where you want it...but you will always be faster around the track because of the ability to brake and accellerate hard with a spool.
