What are the advantages of the Warpspeed diff cases?

Also I noted on the website that there is two columns of prices one for list and one for racers? what is the difference? Who is eligible for either?
Hi Mossie...a spool is a locked front differential( same on-power steering characteristics) different off-power (pushes) I believe IRS makes a spool and a few other companies but cant think of them right off the top of my head right now

You cant go wrong with the D1 chassis.

Someone correct me if im wrong...i think sales off the website get racer prices and then the other is suggested retail price(most manufacturers have this)

once you get a spool car dialed in it will be as fast as a oneway on certain tracks!

OK, tonight is the last race of the season for carpet

But, now it time for some parking lot action for the rest of the summer , I need a setup for aspault, with foams, please

As of right now I don't have a spool or a front one-way, but if thats really the best way to get the edge just let me know.

BTW, I am trailing in second for points on the season, its really up to tonight if the guy shows or not, which I am sure he will, but its been close all season, and I took the points last season. Guess you can't win them all

I am looking into getting a demon chasis conversion, but am unsure which one to get. I currently run a tub with a shorten wheelbase, i milled and repositions the rear hingepin mounts. Which car is the shorter one?

Besides the color, is there any perfomence differnce withthe black/blue graphite, if i remember correctly, the blur is a little less rigid?

The D2 is the shorter car. about 1/2" and you have to use the NTC3 center shaft. As far as which one to get all depends on your driving skills. The D2 is a handful to the less skilled driver. But it is able to dive deep into the corners and punch out of them a lot quicker.

Not sure if the Blue cf is still availible Mr Warpspeed care to chime in ???

Thanks

My car is currently shortened 6 mm, around 1/4 of an inch.

It the d1 the same wheelbase as a normal tc3?

Hi rcracingkid,
The D1 also has the option of shortening the wheelbase by sliding the rear arms forward a good 1/4 inch or smaller increments inbetween...it comes with lengthened hinge pins and spacers for that purpose...as far as different color carbon fiber...

most of the Warpspeed racers have bought the black in exchange from the blue ones (in my understanding) because of the lightness and the more rigidness...so i dont think hes making blue ones anymore...he might have them in stock yet...you will have to call Warpspeed or e-mail him via [email protected] ...im sure youll get a fast response and be happy you got this chassis....ive found it a pleasure to drive myself
