Easy Puddin' people don't usually like truth on these forums.

Oh yeah, you should donate part of that $200 you won to the Rocco-Needs-A-Brushless-Speedo Fund!!

Fioronis are a different animal. But the ideas still there. Im just iffy about the price tag on them. being they are Torsens i know they are pricey but im a cheap ***.

Question on the Active diff.
Does it act like a "one way", like in electric 4wd? I ask because I set my brakes up different than most. I have more front brake than rear. Well I set them up so neather end locks up under full braking, so I'm assumming around 70/30. I don't like my rear end sliding around. I brake early, roll threw turn and then early on throttle. For that reason I don't run "one ways" in electric eather.

The Fioroni Tactive IV Diffs look a little different on the inside, but work exactly the same as the Active Diffs. The only companies I've seen make a Torsen diff are Fioroni (older models) and Ofna. But the Fioroni's currently made are fundamentally the same as the Active Diff.

I wish it was like a one-way like in elec 4WD!!

It works by giving you the best of both worlds of light and thin oils in the front diff. When there is no load on the ring gear, it operates like a normal diff and the diff action is controlled by the wt oil you have in it, while on power, it wedges two beveled aluminum pieces together to restrict diff action making it act like a diff with a lot higher wt diff fluid on power.

So you get more turn-in while getting more on-power steering, but you can alter the amount of turn-in/diff action by changing the diff fluid wt.

Hope my definition is clear!

Don't feel like you need to buy upgrade parts before you race your 808. It performs great just as is. Most 808 owners have few option parts and some of those are convenience parts. Drive it first, then decide.

I changed a few things on my 808 such as aluminum axles and Avid phenolic brake and I had a problem making weight at the Sidewinder race a few weeks ago. I kept hitting the 3150 mark and ended up putting lead weight in my battery box to put me over the legal limit. It also changed alot when I ran AKA tires instead of Panther.

This is not quite correct according to the manual... 90deg plate id for high grip and/or bumpy tracks and 120 is for slippery/flat tracks. I just got mine and assembled it last night. I am planning to run this on a very high grip smooth clay surface for the winter. I used the 90 in my old EC buggy I am assuming that the 90 would be there correct choice. Ive never tried the 120.

Its a completely different dif. No parts are interchangable between a standard dif and acvtive dif. (except the o-rings I think. lol) All the internal gears, cup, main gear, and outdrives are for sure different.

I havent found them anywhere except the one RCHuligan has listed above from rcxray.com No place else seems to have them.
