I agree with Bam, especially for Yokomo CVD's. I always run steel in the front, in the rear I will run aluminum or titanium.

Thought I would let you guys know about a parts sale at Yokomo USA. Buy $100 get 10% off, $200 get 20% off and $300 get 30% off. That's a pretty good deal.

The Stage 3 upgrade for the Yokomo DP is in fact the SSG chassis. Since you already have the SSG chassis, you're in business! Just put some ABS tires on, set the camber to 0 all around, no toe in front, 3 degrees toe-in read, try using Yokomo black springs in front and blue or white in the rear. Tighten up your diffs with the rear being tighter than the front. That motor will do you fine. I used to drift with a P2K2Pro which was more than enough. I switched to brushless only 'cause I couldn't pass up on a good deal and I didn't want to mess with anymore motor maintenance.

But Aries326, having a one-way diff would be suitable for drifting? Or do I have to change the one-way diff to ball diff in front?

graphite in our industry typically refers to a carbon impregnated plastic. isn't carbon highly abrasive? i have stayed away from these for that reason. the standard gears seem to be working fine. perhaps we will do a comparison. and i would also guess that the standard gears are quieter if they are indeed softer.

I do not notice any difference in the noise between the plastic and the graphite gears. The car feels to run free'er with the graphite, are probable a little truer and seem to have more durability.
