Thanks. Sounds like fun. It will also help your driving if you are use to driving on a really tight track.

I run a spool in my EVO. I think after tonight I will go a little stiffer front shock out as the car is a little twitchy. It had great highspeed steering. Need a little more rear traction and need to slow down the over all reaction of the car. I run foams on asphalt and have been running the 3 hole piston with 40wt. Think I need like 50 or 60 in the front.

I want to get a spool for the Evo IV. I have seen the speedtech spool and am wanting to get that, but not happy about the photo id ordering for international orders. Is there any other spool made up for the Evo IV??

Not that I know of. I actually have a diff but I made it into a spool. My diff has absolutely no slip. A normal spool is stronger but but a standard diff made into a spool is alot lighter.

How did you get it so tight??? I have a spare reinforced Diff that I could put together. What did you do to it to get it to not slip?? The screws don't seem to be long enough to screw it in REALLY tight because the locking piece of plastic that the flange nut goes into, it quite flimsy.

You can do it one of two ways. You can remove the diff balls and then use thin sandpaper like the way Losi does it and then tighten the diff down tightly. It won't be slipping at all.

Now mine is actually the white diff half from the EVO III and that uses a alum diff nut instead of a plastic one so you can crank it down a little tighter. I have mine built just like normal but tightend enough that when you check it it is super tight. I know with my setup I can have the pinion on the motor and turn the front tires and it will spin the motor and have no diff action.

Okay, I'll have to try that out. Thanks for the help. I have the Evo III diff cups so I'll try the second method and see how we go. If no good, then I'll try the first method. Worst comes to worst, Araldite works a treat. Just a shame if I want to change the ring gears. (I did do this on my F201 ages ago and it was quite good).

Using a spool with increase your risk of damaging your fears in a big wreck, especially when hitting the walls and still being on the throttle. Alot of stress on the gears. I have not had this problem but have on other shft cars in the past when running spools, (PRo4 and Cuda) both ate gears when I had a spool.

Yeh, the car tends to do that as it is anyway, so that's not TOO big a deal. At the moment I've just been running ball diff at rear (quite loose) and oneway at front.
