Matt:

I hope your employment overseas is fruitful for you and your family. Good luck and chin-up!! Stiff upper lip and remember you're British! (Well, American - but never mind it's close enough! )

Warm regards

Horatio

I weighed it on a crude scale, and it is about an 1/8 oz. lighter than the magnesum one.

Default What's a spool diff?

Is this same as a rigid axle? Whats the difference in the cornering department between a one-way vs spool?

with a spool the initnal turn in off power is slowed just a bit but you can also drive deeper into a corner and hit the brakes without fear of the rearend coming around on you. it also makes the car a little less twitchy. but thats just me., and i drive funny anyway.

my turn, when adding spacers under the hinge pin mounts (both ends of the pin. does that raise or lower the roll center. and under what conditions do you want to do this

Matt Howard, James Nguyen, or other Speedworld pros:

Do you have a CGM setup sheet that you use when you run at the Fairfield KMart (ROCKS)?

Thank you in advance, just looking for a place to start.

John
