True. I did race in the mini class years ago and I think I erroneously compared the two. With that I literally did not brake, just a tad of drag brake if i recall if I ever needed to slow down. I tuned steering w/ the amount of front sauce, aside from that I did little tuning on that and it was a blast. Traction rolling on the same two corners EVERY lap on the other hand...... I even took the body off and I could get it to traction roll so I knew the CG wasn't the entire story here. Watching the others here at my track they certainly are not having to finesse them around the corners like mine has to be so I hope that front diff is where it's att. Really, it's the only thing I have left (Aside maybe from the tires). I did move front tires to rear (removed all sauce) and it didn't make much difference. BTW, I was only saucing the rear tire in hopes of causing an understeer which obviously has failed! As far as driving, like the mini class I assume carrying speed is paramount to good lap times w/ these things. But it also seems (For my current setup at least) to be a VERY fine line between rolling and carrying any semblance of speed through a corner.

OH wow, so your front diff is nearly open.

Chris was really hooked up for the amain, I chased him all day with him having the fastest hot lap and me having the second fastest. The two fox behind him along with me just ran into some bad luck. Al that won the Bmain should have been in the Amain but I was happy to see him grab the win in the B. Well deserved.

No, it has to be the TT01E. There's more to the "E" package than just the top deck. There's a whole tree of stiffer plastic.

That said, if you bought a euro truck set.... There is no way it came without the full TT01e parts... How did you aquire this set?

usually something slower to help the truck not tip over.

I had a Turnigy D99 servo in there, but I swapped for PowerHD LF-13hd. I find faster is better... if I go with a slow servo I end up with wobbles coming out of every corner.
