Not sure yet Tristan, it will be absolutely last minute if I do. Hopefully I'll be on 4 legs(2 legs 2 crutches) this weekend. I still am not back in the office full time yet.

Rod have you committed to running Nats this summer? LMK

...ran a diff in my 415 this past race and I got fast! Well, this track was made for a dif. But anyway, the YOKOMO diff works great and see no problems in wear. At least not yet.

I didn't lock the center yet. I might do it this week before the race.

Suradaj: Is there an alternative to the F201 Unversal shafts?

I've hunted high and low and I cant find them

Is there any reason why the UJ's that came with the car can't be used?

Cheers
Lycan

My understanding on this is:

This will give you a higher RC and provide less roll for that part of the car equals less traction in corners.

Default Spools

Over the past few months i have been noticing that most 415 drivers in the USA are using spools and front diff's in there 415's.

I was wondering what the advantages are? Cause i always thought a front one way will always provide better top end and more steering. Now speedtec RC sells them and im keen in looking to get one for my self.

Thanks,

Luie

Nope, that's exactly the contrary : lower RC thus more grip of the front end.

Cobra81li200, rcspeedo is correct. Lowering the front upper arms will increase roll centre. This provides less on throttle steering (less grip).
