This issue isn't a big deal. I've had every model back to the the mi3 and they all have done.it.

Gear diffs were in stock at Schumacher, briefly:

http://www.racing-cars.com/pp/New_Ca...i4CX/G868.html

I think I ordered the last two, though. They went out of stock after I placed my order. I hope they actually have two for me.

Apparently the diff has CX-style outdrives, but works with the blade axles, too. This piqued my curiosity, so I just tested my CX diff in an LP with blade axles. The blades are very close to bottoming out, but seems to just clear through the full range of travel.

EDIT: I had to remove the slider rings to get the the CX diff to work with the blade axles.

Exclamation

Could anyone help me with a setup for this car ? I run lipos in it and wanted to know a camber/toe/droop setup all front and rear (any at all would also be much appreciated) I'm looking for a medium - slippy surface setup. I believe my rear droop is currently 25.5 mm and my front is 23.5mm (it was somewhere in between what it was when I measured it) (with a vernier gauge from stub axle to ground on a flat surface) it could be bang on or completely wrong I have no idea, so approximate measurements would all be appreciated.

Cheers - James

We have plenty of stock of the gear diff's. Some drivers tested them yesterday and reported a few 10'ths knocked off the laptimes and more consistant throughout the run.
Obviously there is more force on the rear belt and pulley so you have to watch those more closely.
It is recommened to fit the small shims on the output shaft as it doesn't show this in Spec R's instructions.

Our US dealers wont have them yet as they only came in here friday. All shims are included. Just as the website says we've been running Schumacher 70wt shock oil in them.

Skypilot: I wish I was going to be there with you at the Reedy, but lack of preparation on my part is keeping me away this year. I may drive down on Saturday and watch you tear everyone else up. Ramping has just kept me from racing hardly at all since last years Reedy. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you...
