can you put in your two cents on this, for new in the hobby brother . thanks
Spool and front diff feel very similar- difference being spool has a touch of push going into the corner and then creates steering while coming out. Spool may cause the front tire to hop on a mini so be careful with it- could make the car erratic if you are running firm springs. If you tighten down a front diff you can simulate a spool effect but not get as much tire hop which is ideal.

One way is no no for anyone new to racing- It creates LOTS of off power steering and the car can rotate (turn) too fast for newer drivers. Skilled drivers actually like a car to handle like that tho.

Hope that helps some

Sounds good! What's the ruling on inserts? I hear people are having to stuff the ABC front tires to keep from traction rolling at OCRC

considering that the OCRC race has to be moved to 9/12, maybe we can stick a WCRCR or BCR race in on 8/15 instead to fill in the schedule
Akura, What time did you get there, I left around 9:15

I heard but we will be using the same spec stock inserts, I think this will be a challenging track for everyone, fast cars will be slowed down a bit, loosin up the suspension and let the chassis role maybe everyone's ticket to the winning circle

Ahh, I love the feeling of a new home!

Well, let me post some pics of my car and The Track (under remodeling):

The Track (under remodeling waiting for the click-tracks pieces to come in):







The Pit Area (under remodeling):





And finally, my car:









Hope to see you guys come down sometime. I think we are shooting for August 29 for our first race. Mimi will have more details.

I have some more pics coming with the current track template until the click-track pieces come in.

And if you guys are interested in learning more about The Track, please visit http://www.rctrack.com. You will see the old layout and how big the track really is under the Media heading at the top of the page.

I use a Cirrus non digital high speed/torque metal gear servo (CS702MG), and it works fine for me. These cars take alot of beating during wheel to wheel racing, so metal gear is the way to go. It's actually an upgrade from my old Futaba high speed nylon gear servo (S132H).

Hi Mike, hope you don't mind if I add to this a little. Keep in mind that the one way will take away your front braking making all that off power steering even more interesting if you get a little agressive with the brakes in the corner. I've used the one way in the past on more open tracks with more sweeping type turns, as opposed to a tight technical track with tight corners and lots of hard braking points. A spool can be helpful on a tighter track as they really seem to claw out of corners. The one way seems to help carry speed through sweeping turns. The front diff is somewhere in the middle. For the new driver, a front diff is probably the best choice.
