Can't turning drivetrain cause loosening diff? It's only thing that puts me off trying that, it looks really cool.

Well I did some testing yesterday-My findings

-With spring rates I found harder springs to be the key because with soft spring the car rubs on the ground even with a fairly high ride....I was able to a acheive a ride height of 4.5 in the front and 5 in the rear with almost no rub just to prove a point

-Also with harder spring you need less of a lb difference in springs to achieve the same grip ie I was using green and white which is a 4 lb difference and I found red and green to give the same grip with only a 2 lb difference

-Also having no sway bar on the rear can define "the edge" a bit better

Also I was finally able to beat a guy that hasn't been beaten at this track if he has finished the race in 29 races, it would not have been possible with out the Mi4......he is also a Shuie guy Shuies dominate our track

yeah, I'm swaping my electronics between onroad and offroad so they aren't optimised for one particular car.

One of the guys at my track who is 'the' fast guy to beat in Pro-stock now drives for Schumacher.

He used his car yesterday with it modified to take the Xray ECS driveshafts (he used to run the '009) and he said they made a huge difference, he fastest lap was a few hundreths quicker than the Mod guys!
