For modified W is much better but for stock racing I think the softer chassi can have it's advantages on some tracks.
I do have 2 cars which are identically apart from the chassi.
From my testing, I would never only have 1 car with the soft chassi as on some tracks it just does not work at all

Hi Martin,

Could you explain what is the difference between both chassis in handling terms??

Thanks

Default Gear Diff

Does anybody have any tips for building a leak-proof Yokomo gear diff?

won't get a leak-proof one.

The downside of a geardiff is that it just does not work as well as a balldiff does and this is why you loose overall mechanical traction if you put it in. even if it runs really smooth and is pretty soft set.

If you where to make it leak proof, all you can do isuse a harder oil which makes it work even worse resulting in a even worse handling car.

the hard one (standard w) is easier, more consistant and carries more cornerspeed, so it is best 99% of times

the soft one is good for very low speed classes or outdoorracing on tracks with no sugar water applied as it gives more overall traction, which is what you usually don't need on carpet

The arms, C hubs and knuckles are all graphite. Wishbones are steel front and rear. The Yokomo Pink (front) and blue (rear) springs are included in the kit. And 1.3 front, 1.1 rear sway bar is on the kit

if u crash alot, would recommend you to use plstic c-hub instead of the graphite ..

the other a quite durable for crash...

Hope to see another racer join Yokomo...
