ottoman: Put one on for the RR, you will feel the difference, it's soo smooth. Second thing: If you know anything about the losi's, what is the difference in seteup from trackside to road rage? I'm thinking just to lay the shocks down more.

If you reread my post I said I have tried WITH and WITHOUT the diode and I cant tell any difference... in feel or lap times nor have I had any problems with my speed controls (Novak)
Set ups are about the same... depends on the traction and track layout...

The main job of the diode is to protect the speedcontrol from getting damaged during braking. Thats why you can not use one on a speed control that has reverse it keeps the current flowing in one direction. With a touring car that doesnt use much brake its probably not as crucial compared to other classes that might require alot of braking.
