I assume those plugs are not TCS legal so save your real spools for that if you plan to do TCS.

Got the EVO V MS on order from Ampdraw. They are waiting for it to arrive though. Hopefully I get it next week. Same suspension so I lurk.
EvoVMS = dialed

my 416WCE sits shamelessly on my pit table in my garage... stripped of its electronics and dignity.

It's a traction thing... more toe-in set on the blocks versus the hubs will result in better forward traction. Spashett explained the effect to me a long time ago now, and I can't remember the nitty gritty, but that was the jist...

Illegal in? I can't speak to TCS but ROAR, etc they aren't. If they were then all the new TC5's would be illegal. Slipper spools that is. Not sure about a drivetrain slipper.

Slipper clutches acting ont eh spurs are illegal, it has to be direct drive.

Spliff's on the otherhand are fine, as even though they slip, the affect is only on one end of the car... or to put it another way, if you have a loose diff, that'll "slip" too. One-ways are a case in point as well, as off power they are effectively "slipping", i.e. free wheeling.

What's up Mick How you been? i swear me and you have the same cars all the time. For the 13.5 motor I run it at 4.5fdr and with a 98 spur I believe it would be a 44 pinion. I ran the 100 spur and 45 pinion when I ran the 13.5 motor. Very easy to drive and great top end for the straights and sweepers.

Hey guys,
I remember seeing some polycarb diff covers on this thread a while back and I was wondering where I could purchase them and how effective they are, I used the vinyl tamiya ones but I'm looking for something better.

Cheers,
Steve
