why not just use a spool, and save yourself the trouble?

real cars dont need it because they are designed absolutely differently. motor is up front..drift cars are RWD, suspension is designed differently alot of things are different than our r/c.

and as for more power bias rear more and less front helps achieve being able to achieve full lock, AND hold it through a drift.

a spool is used. i dont think you understand what i'm trying to do here. check out the video i posted...drift cars DO use spools in the rear, and ball/gear/or oneway diff up front. but this is different, quite different as a matter of fact. purely has to do with gear ratios and having the rear spin faster than the front.

bump, i found the 13t gear..its off an associated monster truck

still looking for 18t input gear and 42t diff gear!!

That was actually my point.

What you are trying to do is spin the tail out whilst the front follows around at a slower pace but doesn't bog down (which would just spin the car around). On the other hand you don't want too much front end grip or this will result in your car going around corners "normally". I think this is achievable by playing around with grip bias/power level not necessarily with power bias. More weight on the front I imagine would help although I understand is not easy to find the perfect balance.
