Not entirely sure tbh... Was trying to attach some files last night and it wasn't having it, so had to try go the ftp route.. Next thing I know, the sites gone!

Already onto my hosts about it, and seriously hoping they have a more recent back up than Nov08, as I lost mine in a recent computer upgrade

Hey everyone,

Just a simple question,

How important is it for the left turning circle to have the same diameter as the right turning circle, in any sort of touring car? Or is it just being way too pedantic?

Thanks.

You really do want the left and right turning circle to be virtually identical.

just make sure your steering throw is even side to side and you'll be right

It worked for me. With my driving skills I broke before outdrives 2-3/evening before changing to the long dog bones. Have not broken anything since.

It should be if it's well designed. Not sure about the nylon internal gears though. Most offroad and nitro gear diffs have metal internals I believe...

I need one of those gear diffs! I've been dying for a gear diff since owning the Serpent S400.
