I am sure it will be something a lot of people will try because it is a new option for them, even though they don't understand it. The right person will get it to work and probably benefit from it. I can't wait to see what kind of surface and grip level this helps on. I am thinking asphalt is pretty standard, just depends on how the track is prepped, but I don't race on it. But carpet and grip levels here in the states is a lot different then most other places. When the Serpent version is released, I will give it a try. Hopefully I can feel a difference, if not I will be glad it can be removed.

Thank you for the full background.

I must admit I am very surprised passive rear steering hasn't been on every car as an option since its introduction.

If you have any influence on future designs can you get rid of C hubs.

Used two gear diffs in 1991 in off road EP, a few cars had them.

Two gear diffs in on road nitro in 2000 (they were very common).

I do like gear diffs but I miss the ease of ball diff adjustment.
