I think it is just your set up or your driving habbit is not suitable to the track you are running that's all!
Driving skills? Whatever man. Willing to put your money where your mouth is??

have you weighed a negative diff compared to a solid axle and then a standard diff? I raced bikes and I know rotating mass made a huge difference - i know that from experience - not my physics book.

I'm not saying the negative diff isn't good - I haven't tried it. But I'm under the opinion that a HUGE amount of the agility, corner speed, and accel. of these cars is tied to their rotating weight and overall weight. Therefore unless something is critical to performance I will not use it if it adds weight to the car. A few oz. is a lot - considering all the work I put in to shave half an oz here, half an oz there.


TR? lol. TR too slow for the boyz I run with. I know of only one fast TR and it's heavily modified and the owner runs some kind of wild 40% blended fuel in it.


BTW are you going to roar Region 9 champs Nov. 2-3?

I meant no disrespect, really. I just can't stand the little punks in here that always have a smart remark without insight to back up their claims.
Oh well, I think you are a bit over sensitive. you think I just behave as a little punk?

I think my post about diff vs solid axle didnt offence anyone here, did I ?

It was your reply of what to buy. Sorry, you sounded like Ponky Wonky. He changes names often. Last I checked he was ASD. Like I said, I missed the posts.
