Depends on bite. A good baseline is orange/purple fronts with purple rears. Many I know run orange/double pink fronts with double pink rears. I tried the orange/purple fronts with double pink rears and I really liked that a lot. My current favorite is Trinity cyan fronts and magenta rears.

I posted some keys to my carpet setup earlier as you found and the car was on rails. I will try to get my current setup sheet in electronic form soon so I can mail it. Probably after the vacation break.

Well it has one in the rear, so assume you mean the front...

In which case the answer is yes... the front and rear diffs are the same for this purpose

I thought you only had the one, but figured I'd ask. I made a bunch of changes to the 415 yet again, hopefully they will give me the steering Im searching for.

Thought I would clarify my above post..

The gearboxes front and read on the EvoIV are identical..

Therefore a rear diff will fit in a front gearbox and vice versa...

I just sold my TC4 and bought one of these cars. What parts will I need to build a front diff? any necessary hop-ups needed? What normally breaks on the car? Thanks

upgrade the drive cups to aluminum ones, first off. and if you're gonna do that, might as well move to the lightweigh pieces. i haven't broken anything "regularly" with the exception of the original drivecups. i always carry spare arms and now front hub carriers.
Oh yeah, buy some 950 bearings too

welcome to the club!!

Yep, the diffs are the same front and rear. I have a diff, oneway and spool options for my car.

It is a little pricey to build a diff, but you will need:

diff halves
diff rings (same as f201)
diff balls
thrust bearing
diff spring
long 2mm diff screws
2mm diff nuts
parts tree with diff t-nut
two bearings from inside of diff
outdrive protector rings

It sure would be nice if all manufacturers started packaging complete diff kits. I remeber having to do this for my nitro sedan and it cost me $70 to build a set of backup diffs with different oils in them!!!
