I thought that the solid front would help pull the car out of the corner...

Here is the AE Setup page..
http://67.199.85.166/racing/setups.php

Ive notice a few had the front Solid Diff, or at least a One Way.
I even went and checked the TC3 Setups (since there were alot more) and almost all of them had a spool(solid) or one-way up front. And a regular diff in the rear.

But, yes the front solid might help for track but what about for parking lot speed bashing????

Hmmm.. I would think it wouldn't matter in front but def lock that rear up. That's what I'd do. Once you get to a certain point, if you aren't turning much, all that matters is that acceleration up to your top speed. That'll help ya a bit, although I have to say you will be going through rears a bit more... but who cares you know.. you are just bashing. You can always rotate. I apologize for not getting what you were saying about the solid axel.. I thought you were just talking about locking it. I was a bit Petarded.

Haha, it's alright... I guess its hard to have best of both worlds.. Especially with the amount of power this car has...

I wonder if i have both solid diff's would be best for the speed bashing?
Then i can just swap out the rear diff when ever i race/track the car???

Talking

I bet you thrash tires quite quickly with what you are describing for a car. Those are pretty great all around cars though.

Ive had this car put together now for about a month and most of that time its been seating waiting for parts lol. Stuff brakes pretty easy..

Out drives = To much power
Lipo flew off the car = my dumb fault (sent it out to get checked out)
Front Steering hub broke = again my fault lol (replaced with molded carbon hubs all around)

Now the rear diff bolt broke (i thought it was just loss but i just took it apart and found out the bolt broke)




But yea, it roost tires pretty quick.. I got foams but they don't stick as much as the Sorax tires do...

Since it appears they dont make Spliiter spur gears for the TC3/4/5..

What about a Slipper Spool?
I see they make them for the TC5, are there any companies that make them for the TC4?

Any more opinions....?

Cliff notes:
Rear diff bolt broke..
Should i put a solid rear spool(axle) in? (for parking lot bashing)
Do they make any time of splitter spur or spool for the TC4?
