Yeah with the oil in there they do a little bit. It helps a little if you pull 2 of the gears out though

Even if you pull 2 bevels out it will be more than a spool. Probably twice the weight if not more. In mod that weight won't be that big a deal. Looks like spools are the fastest at the world anyway.

Look at the rear sway bar mount, that's pretty cool right there. Also regarding the double gear diffs, remember when Serpent first introduced the rear gear diff, alot of people thought it wasn't needed and not an advantage, now they are pretty common.

New shocks ?

Please drill holes in the chassis so the Tamiya split blocks can be used.... Or Serpent ones can be developed...

Looks like I'll have another car on the shopping list when they are available.



Cheers

Looking over the car it has all the key components to be fast and is a small improvement to some of the top TC's in some areas. I would be surprised if it wasn't fast out of the box. If I was to change my current TC this would be my top choice.

The gear diff has always been better than the ball diff as far as I am concerned but the trouble is due to the higher weight and lesser motor power in years gone by they had some disadvantages too. Now with brushless torque the weight is almost a non factor. If you have ever run a diff up front you know how much better your car is around corners but with a gear diff you can get the same action with out the lack of drive or brakes while turning. The gear diff was always better its just now that TC companies are looking for every improvement that they have revisited this tech.
