Fred had a one-way. Not sure about Charlie...maybe he goes both ways Corey had a spool. And I saw Bitters using brakes so either a spool or diff. DJ, Edgar and myself ran oneways but my car would have been easier to drive with a spool.

As for their setup...that's a good question.

I ran mine at 2.5. I tried 2.0 and found 2.0 turn-in better but 2.5 carves the turn better.

Thanks guys. I haven't really ran 19t much. And that's the class I'll be running at the Norrca Nats this weekend. So I'm just looking for a good starting point. I normally run 1° in the rear for Stock and 2-3° for Mod.

Depends on traction, but I usually run 2 degree for stock. So if you are used to 1 degree, 2 degrees might be more than enough for you.

Gotta build one yourself from other diffs from other cars. One way to do it is from a Yokomo rear diff from the SP (belted) car. The way I'm gonna try is from one half of a 415 diff.. and one half of a F201 diff. Then try the bones from the Evo IV or F201. I'd like to get this setup ready before winter time for carpet season. Plus it'd be nice to try at the Snowbirds.

I believe Charlie Suangka ran spools as well.

Who makes a stronger servo saver with less play? I had one from Kimbrough, but the tension feels very weak...

Kimbrough´s medium size KB 201 (grey). It´s a smaller version with the hard spring of the large one.

V12, how do the German guys pronounce Kimbrough?

Got my 415 yesterday Nice! Is it recommended, like for the EVO III to run a Kimbrough servo saver?

Cheers, Mark.

I think Kimbrough is a difficult word to pronounce for Germans.

Let me know when you have run the first batteries on your 415.
I´m interested what you think in compare to your EVO III and especially the Xray.

I never run a Tamiya servosaver again. I always replace with the Kimbrough medium size. Reason is the Tamiya one doesn´t center very good. As I´m running no Tamiya racing series I´m not limited to Tamiya stuff only.

Actually, most of the guys running out at the Tamiya track run a straight servo horn on their servo (no savers) dangerous for the servo yes, but feels very precise around the track. With any servo saver, you're going to have some play and slop and it makes the car wander around the track.

I know and when I ring up Friedel, I know he won't know what the hell I mean How would you phonetically spell Kimbrough in German?
