This is correct you must change the diff oil other wise the car is UGLY. I've done a few setup changes ( springs, shock oil and diff oil ), there is racing on this weekend. I am waiting for a reply from Mr Lam for some spares. I'll post my findings on the weekend ( Sunday night ). Got to go underground again. AMGRacer give me a PM about that setup.

Cheers Guys.


Who is the MOLE?

For ordering you'll likely need to look at a ratio of 3 sets of rears to 1 set of fronts - or thereabouts.
3-to-1 ! Jeeeez are you sure ?

I'm gunna either go with Ellegi from HK or Actives from Japan... depends on the price I guess... from Japan I get charged 5% tax and the last shipping quote I got was $220 (must be some kinda mistake) !

The Actives will likely be dearer, but they wear better than GRP's. It's a question of value for money.
Dunno about the freight cost - but you said you were buying a "fair few sets".

I guess active tires are made with japanese rubber. they should be more or less the same thing. japanese quality. I could be wrong !!
