So should you use track width more for traction correction, or for turning problems?

Guys, I have a question about diffs.

I went to a Kimbrough 88t spur and replaced the 8 steel balls with 12 ceramic balls.

I'm running a 27t motor, and I had to really tighten down the diff nut in order to keep the diff from spinning (sounded like the clutch on a 100cc yamaha kart!!).

Is there a better "system" to use? I heard a few Guys talk about different diff rings (Niftech) and such to try.

Thanks in advance for any help.

-Steve

Other than that the car was pretty dialed.

so far what has worked best for me is 12 carbide diff balls in a Kimb. spur with the red label Associated diff lube...but I am about to test some new Axiom ceramics at a big local race Jan 18-20....stay tuned, I will let you know how it goes...

I dont believe what diff rings you use matters much...

Steve,
The set up you have should work fine. Next time you are at the track let me look at the car and we can get your diff dialed in

BTW, Niftech diff rings are the best but you have to use them with a Niftech diff as they are pinned.

crc light diff rings are best with ceramic balls and red ae lube.
sand the rings and use a slapmaster and its butter.

I'm using the light rings, ceramic balls, and red a.e. lube. What is a slapmaster?

Thanks,
Steve

I've been running the stock class lately, and have a pretty good setup. I haven't changed it too much from the kit setup except for: red center spring, 0 deg toe, 3.5mm ride, 1.5 camber. Jaco Prisms Lilac front, yellow rear.

I want to run the 19t-13.5 class, and I want to understand what the car needs to be doing to handle the increase in power. I know I could go on CRC's website and copy some setups, but what i'm looking for is someone to help me understand what the different setup will do.

I know that in stock, the car needs to be more "free", or not as bound up (robbing power). So, in 19t we need to tighten up the car, or add more grip?
If this is so, what adjustments do we go to first?
Most importantyl, how should the car feel?

Sorry for the drawn out question, and I do appreciate the help everyones given so far.

-Steve

1 its 19t or 10.5
you may want to try 2x pink front and pink rear tires,the rest is fell and driving style,you got to play with setup but i think others here can explain better.
but if you go with BL you wont need to worry about your motor changing,its got good power all the time and you can work on your car more.
drive, get smooth and practice.and play with your radio settings for your steering,to much steering can rob the car corner speed.
