Yeah, you gotta get one. Especially if you are racing and using setups from other people.

I'll post pics of mine soon.

Great, I just opened up my sts rs3 for routine maintenence after break-in and i found the conrad has a lot of play. Well, I called the importer team crc and they said they will probably be able to send me a replacement for free and thats the good news. Sadly, though, i don't have another engine so Ill be without my beloved g4 probably until next week. I may as well do a rebuild of the car and get it cleaned out. I might even bust out the xxx-s G+ for some good times While im checking out the car, i may try to mod the steering and see what happens, ill tell you how it goes.

There was an earlier post that compared all three (PMB, Hudy and Integy)

This is my first one, so its just fine for me.

Price is the deciding factor for me. As long as its accurate and easy to use, I'll use it. Everything seemed to be ok with the board and the setup system.

The board is a little thinner than I thought it would be, but I prefer it to be light. Everything is easy to see and well defined. I know my track width now

199 in front and 200mm in the rear.

I just found that out this weekend too.

I am running 58mm front and 61mm in the rear and it gives me way more on-power steering.

I love it.

This is my first attempt at racing nitro. I have been racing my xray for a while. I ran a one-way in it once and could not do anything with the car. Has anyone tried the diff in his or her G4. I know I am not comparing apples to apples with xray to G4 comparison, but is the one-way easy enough to drive?

P.S. NITRO PIMP that girl is swollen around her colon. [email protected]#! She is bad!

BTW, I've run both the one-way and the gear diff in my G4. Unless you're on a pretty big track with a lot of high speed sweeping turns I'd stick with the gear diff, especially if you have to brake going into any corners. My local track has a 105 foot straight and a lot of smaller turns and I was getting my a$$ handed to me regularly when I had the one-way in. I put the front diff back in and took 1.5 seconds off my average lap time, plus I'm hitting the boards less often.
