the R2 is an electric 1/10 4wd car.
Spooled diff is usually ran in front on EP cars. It will give a ton of on power steering.

You gotta love the light weight simplicity of the stock pillow balls. What's the need for hinge pins? ...Pillow balls don't bend either

I really don't see the need for hingepins either, I like the pillow balls a lot. No risk of bending, no spacers needed or filing to get them to move freely. Then there are the offset balls that allow a quick and simple change of toe in, aslong as you do it accuratly on a setup station.

Looks like lots of parts needed for hingepins too, bet they don't come cheap.

Yup! And add a few washers under the pillow balls and you can alter the roll center or kick up- doesn't get any simpler.
