Hi guys,

I have quesiton regarding the drive train / internal transmission. The kit standard is 34T solid axle in the front, 20T pulley, and 38T Rear diff. As I understand, the front would turn faster than the rear, so it is pulling the car, does this offer more steering too?

I would like to know how does it (as kit 34T-20T-38T) compare to 38T-20T-38T and 34T-20T-34T, in speed (acceleration & top speed), stablity, or steering (entry, mid, and corner exit), if relevant.

Thank you in advance.

Nope.

A little off topic, but has anyone ever tried a 38/20 front with a 34/18 rear or swaped around setup?

I haven't run with the ecs yet. have you been losing pins out the joints?

I just swap the pins with the ones we use in the wheel hex hubs. So far so good for me. Maybe that little extra length keeps everything in place a little better...

Most problems with driveshafts involve the pins coming out.
I have had them start to come out but have never had a 'full' failure.

No, but there's no movement at all since using heatshrink.

I had a full failure. Lost pin, lost yoke. Wallowed out the C hub. Destroyed the opening in the dogbone that fits into the pin of the axle. Useless now. Blue 242 Loctite was used.

I'll be using the shrink wrap techniqe if I decide to go back in with another. I just cant stomach purchasing another for the price right now.

ok reading the new column and looking at that photo that was taken i noticed a few things, maybe

rear shocks at the front of the rear shock tower?
centre layshaft layout = spur/belt/belt (talking od breaking spurs)
front diff seems to sit on thr right as opposed to the middle, kind of confirms above.

Wider lower deck. the edge seems to lign up with the sway bar mount on the arm, lipo ready?

Shocks are on the back of the tower per norm.
Front diff is on the left as per normal.

Thats just a stock photo from an event, they wouldnt be showing any of these new items in public, they do far too much private testing.

The only thing that looks odd from memory is the shape of the rear shock tower around where the camber links mount.

my 09 has came with black alu servo mounts instead of the orange, and they also have seemed to have supplied the optional parts to move the shocks forward in a bag labeled 0002 . anyone else end up with a kit like this. looks alil wierd with the black servo mounts against all the orange
