It's solid, it ain't doin' nothin'

That was pretty good slang for a fereigner, including double negative, huh?

The solid rear is definetly better with the Lola bodies, but the negative diff is the s+++ for the TC bodies. In my opinion (stepping up on the soapbox) , THESE ARE TOURING CARS AND SHOULD RUN TOURING CAR BODIES!!!!!! If you want to run Lolas, then step to 1/8. (Stepping down now) But if you feel the need for a Lola on a touring car, then you got to go with the solid rear.

Locks the rear wheels together so you do not have any diff action at all. As to the difference in handling...thats a little to put in words.....I'll let someone else do that!

Essentially, the driving style is totally different...the more gas you give the better it turns!! Sort of like ...seeing your car heading for the outer barrier so you give it more gas to turn better ie. the reverse of what you would normally do!!

Once you have mastered it you will never go back! Not too good for small tight tracks because the car can feel a little' dead' on tight corners.....just remember...be BRAVE!!!

I'm sure Manticore can do better with the description...he was the one that 'corrupted' me into the ways of the solid shaft!!!

errr..... true!! but we're just here to have FUN.........Solid axle + Lola shell is cheaper than buying 1/8...assuming you have a track to run it in the first place!!

Hey,
Thank you all for the info on the "solid shaft". I think I don't need it because I race in a small track and don't use "lolita" body (that means little lola in spanish).

Ah10,
That looks really cool, but how much weight are you adding to your car with that "kewl stuff"?
