Are you Drag racing ? If so get a solid diff and do away with oil.

If ya need to use oil try 60-70,000 gives less diff action

active diff: external adjustable on diff action hardness. but the machanism is not good and it doesnt hold setting true.

negative diff: a built in clutch (in the diff) to make the diff become solid axle

For drag racing/ultimate speed you can do some mods to your V1R..........

1. Remove the middle belt and front belt and front diff and middle layshaft. Reduce rotating mass a HEAP.

2. Remove the rear shocks and replace with turnbuckles. Assists the rear from unloading due to suspension squat. Make sure your car is not tweaked!

3. Buy some 235mm foam donuts in around 25 shore. Get two old foam tires from a touring car and glue them together cutting the centre out of the outer one. Put both inside the donut and glue them to the donut. You should have around 50-55mm of foam surface now. True it down accordingly.

4. Get some slotcar foam tire additive and use this on the foam for instant grip, but messy.

5. Lola bodies or really slammed sedans are good.

6. Set the clutch high and run the bottom end really lean. Dont put much fuel in the tank.

7. Use a solid diff in the rear (the K factory one is very light)

8. Then you start cutting things up and lightening things. I wont even go there

Yep right Manticore as I have just found out.

I might go back to the standard diff. At least I know now how stiff it needs to be

We run the negative diff - got it from "rjl" ages ago - he sure needs help in the avatar dept.

. . . anyway, my driver was a bit non-plussed with it, so I put some extra weight (3mm grub screws) in the clutch shoes and it seems to work much better.

Where did you get these tips from AMG?

A tip on lightening things.... you can go too far.... but it looks bloody cool when your car flexes just like the real top fulers. I'm gonna have to get back into RC Drag... You dont have a spare V one I could borrow do you AMG?

I have done it, but on an old RS4 2. Inspiration for pretty much all the above tips came from the QLD drag racing champ himself..................
