Default Has anybody ever tried this on TC?

Has anybody tried to run on a TC instead of solid axe or one way in front and differential on rear ,the opposite? I mean the combination differential on front (or one way) and solid axe on rear.

I think it will make your rear end slide out more or "loose". But I dunno.

Some of the drifters use a solid or locked rear diff.

I have tried it (spool rear, diff front) in Mod Foam and it makes the car very loose on power. It might work OK with less powerful motors.

OK, then why do the 1/8 gas road cars use a solid rear and one ways up front? Wouldn't a ball diff in the rear corner better and be a lot easier on tires? Don

I tried that once on my TC5 with 3.5 brushless for the hell of it. It was ridiculous but fun attempting to maintain control.

Cause the 1/8 gas on-road cars use 2.5" wide rear tires, while Touring Cars use 1" wide tires on all 4-corners with much lower down force bodies.

8th onroad use a solid spool because of the beginning days when diffs slipped and gear diffs were not used. Some have tried specialty rear diffs and they work amazing, but are not allowed. The cars corner great as it is, but because of the spool in the rear, require the rears to be coned to get maximum traction.

It will never work better than a diff. If you look at it in terms of real vehicles, cars use it for drifting, trucks use it for crawling or trailing. To race and be competitive, use have to use a rear diff. If you want to use a solid axle, use it in the front.

Oh man, if we had diffs for the rear on 8th on-road, they would perform even more amazingly than now. They would perform similar to the WGT 200mm Pan Cars, except in 4wd.

Woooooaaahhhhhhh!!!

If you count carts as "real vehicles," they don't utilise a rear differential. Instead, most chassis are designed to "flex" allowing the inside wheel to either lift or slide ever so slightly.

Off topic, i know, but interesting nonetheless.

hell yeah, that's EXACTLY how my TC project works well, I didn't intend it to kick up the inside rear wheel, but it does.

if i'm not mistaken, chris tosolini and barry baker ran spools in the rear and oneways up front on their Yok GT4's at the 2000 onroad nationals in Texas.

I didn't know diffs were illegial in 1/8 road-sounds like someone missed the boat on that one. I'm converting an Evolva to brushless, does anyone know where I can get a ball diff for the rear? Don
