Default rear diff height?

Paul,

My car is a bit loose in the rear and I am being told if I raise my rear diff a little higher it will help me w/rear traction?
Does this sound correct?

Thanks,

Nhra: 5.0, 56.5mm, Temp im not sure. I dont remember changing the rotor atall but jim may have. maybe he will answer. I ran majenta's in both classes.
Speedo, all stock settings except for turning off the lipo mode. Thanks

Aaron: cool, ill be around some this coming week. maybe ill see you then.

Anotherrcguy: I think it depends, but ill just put it this way. I have never raised my rear diff and just said ( man my car pushes), i think that it can give you more rear grip in certain areas, but just plain more rear grip i dont think so.

Sean: NO, [email protected], try this.

Thanks Paul
