Well I'd say it depends if you are racing carpet or asphalt. If it's carpet... go for the diff. If it's asphalt... go for the spool. I have the Yokomo SD and TRF415 spools from SpeedtechRC and they are very good quality and show no wear so far.

Thanks for the replies guys. I guess It'll be more cost effective with the spool config as well. Since not to many parts are needed to achieve this.

We have these uprights in stock right now, along with the new 415 spools as well (as someone mentioned earlier )

Jason,

I saw it but didn't get a chance to calculate a total for you just yet. Sorry about that. I'll let you know as soon as possible.

Setup help needed.

Just got back from the Tamiya track for 4WD testing...

The car feels pushy and roll a lot like a boat... it feels like it stop at the mid corner. when i try to push harder, the car will sometime push, sometime oversteer... not very predictable... feels like it has a mind of its own..

What should I do to take away the push, yet being stable?

My setup is:
Front: white spring, 40wt oil. Speedtech spool. Takeoff27 tires.

Rear: blue spring, 40wt oil, Evo3 1deg rear hub, B/D suspension braces, Takeoff 27 tires.

everything else is stock setting....

i'm running a Reedy 19T, gear 78/29.

in fact 11 out of the first 20 cars were Orion powered Tamiyas.
But even the TC3 guy from the A-Final used an Orion V2 endbell on his Reedy motor.

Beside this there were some informations about this race at this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=39633
