As Manti said the weights go in between the pins only. To change the engagement of the clutch you tighten or loosen ( what ever is desired) the spring nut (not sure of offical name) the nut is used to adjust the preload on the spring to alter when/how the clutch engages.

You will find if you use a one way your car will handle a lot better than your MTX-3. You will your car is a lot faster into the corners using a one way but it personal perference what we run. But the MTX-3 is a different setup to the V one RR so you can't compare them.

The track does look good, Keith has designed a excellent looking track. I think the surface is concrete and from what I understand you have to run rubber tyres. ( please correct me if I'm wrong, someone from wynnum). But their race day falls on the same Sunday as ours. Not that this should worry anybody, one of the things I fell you must do to become a better driver is to race at different curcuits. This I feel helps you refine your setup skills, sure it's easy to ask a track local for his/her setup, but that may only work for them. And I strongly beleive that all drivers are different and have some different ideas, that what makes us human. But one day I will venture over to Wynnum and I am looking forward that day. For the time being I would like to get the car sussed out and learning to drive it.

the kawhara diff has shoes like a two speed and the kyosho lsd is like a real car diff lsd- it stand for limited slip diff and it does exactly what the name says, the kawahara does exactly what a shoe two speed does, but not in adjustable way as a two speed, but it works great!. the kawahara works like a normal diff on corners and soon as you plant it locks up! both have down sides you have to use some of your old internals to assemble them its shit in a way you pay all the money for it but if you want it you'll buy it.

The Kawhara negitive diff works well the car is a lot faster into the corners because the diff is lock up. When you have got the power on it is lock & when you are off the power it is not lock The diff is worth the money I like using it

I ran a negative diff for around 12 months and found it to be generally very nice. I used to run it with just grease in it no silicone oil at all and found this to work very well.

However the biggest problem with the diff is it can make the rear of the car loose if the conditions are not quite right. The locking action is quite severe and requires good rear traction to use 100%.

The kyosho lsd on the other hand does nto really increase forward bite as much as the neg diff, but it stabilises the rear, even in very low grip conditions.
