I haven't tried this yet, but I will most likely take the advice of many people and get the K factory front spool.

If anyone tries this, share how it works

I'm assuming they are using an equivalent to the link below.

Before I bought the spool I used duct putty and it made a huge difference.
I like the spool much better. I got a more constant feel and it entered the corners better.

For those who have the stock CVD's I would upgrade to the Kfactory CVD's. I broke my front arm and the CVD bone end shattered on the outdrive side. I plan to upgrade ASAP.

The car is setting up and running really nice. The CVD's held up for me all right, however i had an issue where cup got a little tweaked and refused to hold together the pin kept slipping out and binding itself up. I've installed the K-Factory one way with their beefed CVD's. There seems to be a little more chatter on power up front, overall a little less smooth than the stock bits, but its helped a lot out on the track, I shaved about a second off my lap times with the new front setup.

I switched out the rear diff with the old front to see how the stiffer diff would run, i felt it slowed me down a bit, the car seemed to have more bite on braking but wanted to track a little wider on turns than the looser old stock diff. I'll keep playing with it and let you guys know.

**UPDATE**
After adding a 1.5 shim to the front K-Factory A-Arm Holder the shaking caused by the Front Spool was eliminated. I added a little oil between the shims and retainers. If you choose to do this, remove your front suspension and flap the A-Arm to ensure that the arms can still move freely under their own weight.

There is now a 1.5 shim to the front and rear of each arm, what characteristics will change if i choose to move both shims to either front or rear vs splitting them? I would assume it will change the Front/Rear stance but how will this effect the car?

Alright. Decided im probably gonna get one of these to run at our speedweekend event this january.
Without spending a mint in upgrade parts, are there any parts i should pick up straight away?
really was shopping for a car i could just, build and race.. but seems impossible lol.

gonna be running it in 17.5 blinky on spec Jaco Blue's. I was working on my e4rs a little in the other thread but looking up part availability,, say... for a 3deg castor block even.. not so encouraging.
ill prob make a set of parts to see how it works in modified but move to this car.

probably send a lot of questions your way rcinfos =)

Hello

Spool with steel oudrives would probably be the most important.

Kfactory universals or tm option? Is the car so bad without these upgrades?

You can run original universals, I'm running them on the rear end without any problem. On the front, I use Kfactory driveshafts with double articulation, as many drivers also do on many other brands and cars; it's not a problem of quality.

About spool, it's only because the kit is delivered with 2 gear diff. Personally, I usually use front spool, especially on carpet. If you choose to use spool, I recommend the steel outdrives instead of the aluminium, for a perfect durability.
