That's what I just tried, the other way didn't seem to work as well.

Most of the people who run at Tamiya recieved only 2 spring washers and I know my instructions only called for 2 however if you add a third like the old F-103's then the diff work's MUCH better. This is why I recoomend this to everyone who has not already tried it. Tamiya may have made a running change and inluded a third washer or updated the Instructions but I am not 100% sure if they did or not.

By running the third washer you get the best of all worlds: better adjustment, better bite for the diff and it can be run smoother as there is a more spring involved. On a high bite track with anything over a Johnson the diff will simply spin and eat itself without the third washer.

Anyone running brushless in their Courage kits? My buddies and I are looking to make our cars lower maintenance, and brushless+lipo seems like a good combo. Anyone get one to fit, or am going to have to be the guinea pig?

I tried using 23turns and it was already too much motor on med bite track. Not sure which BL would be just right for it.

Yeah, I don't mind the power, as much as I want the reliability. This caught my eye: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXGDP6&P=ML
