Thanks guys for all the help!
I am anxiously awaiting those new cvd axles. For now i will order a spare. Also i can see why the aluminium arms would be a nice upgrade, no slipping on that grub screw. Anyone using them?
Any one else diff tighten up on them? Anyone using the new rear oil diff?
Whats the difference with a front one way as compared to the spool? I was told the spool is power on steering increased power off steering decreased.

aluminium C-Hub is a good option to upgrade...hehe...

front 1 way gv more steering than spool bt it's depend wat driving style r u prefer...if u play mod, spool is reconmended as it's allow u to use Brake...some ppl still use 1way, but i owes see him overshoot....

if u play stock, mostly ppl will reconmend u use 1 way..some said, 1 way gv u faster lap time than spool...but i feel tat spool n 1 way dont have diff in lap time n for me, spool is more controllable than 1 way...at least u can do last minute braking in corner while 1 way need to off throttle a few Feets before d corner....

Just a heads up for those interested, I've been getting a lot of PM's for the setup sheet that won't load, I e-mailed it to a few people to try and post up here so hopefully we'll see it on here in the next day or so!

Great Job Allen and Conner. It would be great if you could post your setups and show others what it takes to be consistent with there S400's .

Conner should scare us all in a few years, but then girls will beginr to pull his interest and real cars and maybe we still have a chance.

Just what he wrote...GEAR diffs... no more balls and diff rings. Chnage the diff lube to suit track conditions and you're done. Serpent is the only manufacturer to offer this for an electric sedan but you can bet others are working on them now...

I sit the chassis on 10mm droop blocks, and measure from the setup board to the top of the axle.
