Has anyone messed around with the diff height? A guy at our local track has been running his rear diff in the high position and having very good luck with it.

Just haven't seen anyone talk about this adjustment here.

Thanks,

I tried it like that and it made the car free-er in the the back end. It felt good on tight tracks and very unstable on large tracks.

Ah, cool. That was the first time I'd ever seen someone run them high, I had been under the impression that they should just always been low.

Billy still is running his rear diff in the high position.

By the way anybody have an extra set of black 22lbs springs? My black kit came with 2 sets of 24lbs. Haven't heard back from Corally USA yet about this.

they are made out of the plastic motor tube caps that we sell at teambrood.com its just plastic. they attach by the hole driled in the middle you slide it over the out drive and it will snap into place once it in right agianst the flange for the diff ring.. it stays in place because the hole is meant to be alittle small so it wont free spin on the out-drive.

MARC FRESCHETTE TQ'S AND WINS AT MAGMA RACE

Marc took his RDX to the TQ spot this past weekend at the Magma Race in 19T Rubber tire class. After searching a bit for a setup, he bolted on Mike Nelson's winning setup from the Novak race and immediately moved to the top of the pack.

Marc proceeded to follow up the TQ spot by winning the A-mains 1 and 2 by a comfortable margin to take the overall WIN for the Triple A-main format.

More details and setups to come on our website. Congrats Marc!

Now onto the Snowbirds....
