Default tc4 dif help

i have been racing my tc4 on a local asphalt track. my problem is that i keep having my front dif come apart on me. i have gone through three in the last two weeks. it would have been 4 but i didnt picup on it at the track till the end of the a main. i need some help on this becouse i only did off road / drag till a couple of months ago. as far as my lap times go till the front dif goes out i am runing a couple of tenths of what the tracks fastest driver runs consistantly. he runs a X-ray t2. with a 14.4 as his fastest. while my tc4 is at 15.0 and alot more wieght for my car. i am tired of 2nd or 3rd place. any help is great. I want a faster car (the wife wants me to keep what i got.)

What do you mean by 'come apart'? If you're still using the plastic outdrives, get the metal ones.

As already mentioned, you need to be running a steel front diff. You likely need to be running a spool anyways, since your running on asphalt. That will solve all of your assembly problems. Make sure you pick up the thick blue CVD bones for the front, if you dont already have them.

Pickup a used 009 Xray, then you will be a few seconds faster, guaranteed!!!!!!
