To explain it simply, when you reduce the diff action, you reduce steering. You also reduce the amount of unloading the diff does, so you have to play around with it to find the right balance. I would suggest you stick with the stock setup of 30K up front and 10K rear with rubber tires. That should give you a good balance of steering and reduce the diff unloading. You can use tires, different springrates, shock positions and caster to change the steering characteristics. Once you get comfortable with the setup of the car and what changes cause which effects, then try changing the diff oils. The stock setup is very good with rubber tires. You should have a very competitive car if you use the stock setup and only change the shock positions to balance out traction. The Take-Off CS27 is a good tire, but you may want to have a harder compound available for the front in case you have too much steering. Good luck!
hi Psycho, when you mention "diff Unloading" what does this mean?

Ok here we go, my son's new MTX-2 arrived this morning.
here come the questions:-
1. The kit has turned up with the RS12S1 motor instead of the MT12 any worries??
2. Novarossi motor instruction specify the use of oil on the foam air filter, is this right?, what oil?.
3. picked up on some advice in RC Racer mag about drilling 2x1mm holes in front shock pistons & 3x1mm holes in rear is it a good idea?

Any other advice on Mods/tips we should be carrying out during build would be greatly appreciated

I'm not psycho but here's my interpretation of diff unloading.

With open or gear diffs w/no or light oil in the diff case, the wheel that has the least traction gets the most power. If for instance, the front right wheel lifts off the ground (no traction) during a right turn, that wheel will get power and the outside (left in this case) wheel that's on the ground will get no power.

You'll also here the term "diffing out".

Thanx Sydewynder, that's a better explaination than I would have given!

Team_Akina_1

There's no reason you can't run a one-way with rubber tires. I wouldn't use HPI X-pattern tires, though. Try Pit-Shimizu or TakeOff 24's or 27's. If you install the one-way, you'll need to back your brake off quite a bit and remember that you lose steering when you let off the throttle. It works a lot differently than diffs and will take you some time to get used to it.

The oil on the air filter is what the dirt clings to, so it is very important. Just use some oil that will wash out with soap. I usually use shock oil since I have tons. That's what Tamiya shock oil is good for! It's no good in shocks!
