From what I can tell the FK comes witha oneway, can any of you tell me the part number for the diff( just want to make sure I order the right one). Looks like that is another hard part to find so I figured I would do that while the kit is in transit. Also when I try to look up shock spring kits I see there are 2. Which one for the FK?

If you order the diff kit you will need a 32t pully also for the 1.77 . The one off the oneway will not work due to the larger center hole. as far as I know you can only get the pullies in a conversion kit from the 2.125 to the 1.77 as a set ( not single which kinda sux)

Man o Man, looks like I opened a whole can of worms. I am going to be racing 19t foam and a oneway might not be good, at least for my tc3 it wasn't. So for the factory team kit you can't get a diff for the front without buying a conversion kit. Doesnt the factory kit already come with 1.77 as a stock part? I am only asking and I reallly don't know much about the kit yet so if something I say doesn't make sense please excuse me.

EGADS!!!!! how could you compare (sp) the fk to a TC3 . the fk is twice the car. the oneway is fine just set you esc to a nuteral position and dial as much brakes as possible. close your eyes and hold on!!!!

it would work but it would make one diff spin faster then the other

the 2.215 and 1.77 does work but it stretchs out the front belt alot, and makes it pretty tight. My brother did that to his fk and thats what happened.

Isnt there alot of tension on the drivetrain then? Since its 2 different ratios and one part of the car is spinning faster than the other.

From what I read on Xray's site you use one or the other pulley, depending on your kit, and replace the entire front one-way with the ball diff. Here is the link:

Or is there something else I'm missing?

That's why included a little disclaimer with my post, I have alot to learn about the the car. I just want to make sure I have all the bases covered, my local track changes it layout weekly and you just never know what you need. If I have to purchase extra parts to make it work so be it. I want things to work properly though so what is it that I need(part #'s if possible) to have a diff for the FK. Thanks for the input. One last thing, I was looking at the parts list on the site and I see that some of the suspension and c hubs come in soft and medium. Man this kit has so many possibilities. What would you guys recommend for ozite carpet with foams?

im having problems with the exit steering on my car. initial turn is and mid corner is quite impressive but as i go deeper with the throttle as i exit it tends to push badly i tried various shock posisions and spring combinations both front and rear. i was able to get more steering using the low mounting hole on the front hingepins. would an anti squat set-up help me with this? or should i resort to another body. btw i am using a mazda 6.

I dont think its your body S-T-R-l-K-E-R, What is your anti-squat and kickup? Have you tried 6*c-hubs?

Mazda 6 bodies have that tendency, Striker...they turn in real hard and push real hard going out. I'd recommend a Parma or Losi Alfa body.
