cool, its all good

The tank, hmm well, yeah I was oringinally against it, trying to avoid K factory stuff, but then, it seems nobody has had a problem with the tank. I dont like the fact that i cant use the Kawa pro upper deck with the tank. That's the only thing thats stopping me. I'm partial to the Kawa pro deck. Just seems more solid and it looks cooler.

What I would do is buy Both if I where you.

The best part of this hobby is the tinkering and custom fitting of parts

cheers....
The K factory shaft is a little weaker than the original...normally you will be fine....but if you run a solid rear axle, this will load the shaft more. I've had a K factory shaft break on me before simply from the torque of my engine....I was coming out of a corner when it decided to give up! Ti would be a better bet.

i c...so which shaft r u running right now? its your second shaft?

BTW, i need some setup info on a parking lot temporary track which is rather bumpy. Would appreaciate if you could help to give comments to my datasheet as below:

Front Geometry:
- One-way
- Stock spring
- Stock Shock Oil
- Anti roll bar (vertical)
- Droop -1
- Camber -1.5
- Toe-Out 1
- Ride Height 7.5mm
- Ennetti 35 Shore 26mm Foam Tyre
- No shock tower used

Rear Geometry:
- Diff with 100K silicone grease
- Fivestar Yellow spring
- Stock Shock Oil
- Stock Sway bar
- Droop 4
- Camber -2.5
- Toe-In 2.5
- Ride Height 8.5mm
- Ennetti 35 Shore 30mm Foam Tyre
- Shock mounted on the lowest hole of Fivestar carbon fibre
shock tower

I find that this setting is lack of grip at the back end but lot of steering. I have to back off power a little earlier than other racers to enter the sweeper after a long straight.

PLs advise......cheers

It seems that you have too much off power steering from what you have described.

Firstly, try using the same front and rear ride height.

Secondly, limit your rear droop (i.e. from 4 to 6). This will limit the weight transfer from the rear to the front during off throttle.

The reason why your rear is loose can also be due to the rear droop. Limit it to 6 or 7 and try it out.

you also may want to try a harder shore up front. 35 is pretty aggressive a shore on the front especially if you're oversteering already. Try 40-42. If that doesn't do it try stiffening your front springs. If your track is bumpy you may not want to take out your droop.

Default active diff

Seems pretty good, responded to adjustments, and has held settings so far.

My gear diff seems to be leaking quite a bit. Is this normal?

Manticore posted the fix a few pages back, using slightly longer screws. Coating the leaking edges with RTV after you rebuild it helps seal it also.
