I have always ran the front diff with 100k wt fluid and it works well yielding no understeer on or off power. But I agree 500,000 wt fluid will most likely make the car difficult to drive.

Hello from France,

This one for this new season...



I decided to make a new scheme for the Red Bull World Champs Rally and Formula 1...

The Subaru Impreza WRX Red Bull....







Here's the link for our 2nd race of the winter:

On my 1/10th nitro i love to use front spool, would work on GT's ?, not a spool but i think i have 500.000 diff oil laying around waiting to be used ... would it work ?

thanks,

Pato this is what many people start with something like this:

front shocks 1000 wt. (diff oil)
rear shocks 80 wt.
yellow spring front 40740
white spring rear 40739
front camber 2 degrees
rear camber 3.5 degrees
front toe neg 1
rear toe 2
roll center inside upper front and rear
100,000 front diff.
30,000 rear diff.
7mm ride ht frnt.
8mm ride ht rear
front sway bar almost 90degrees
no sway bar rear


I ended up using this:
front shocks 1000 wt. (diff oil)
rear shocks 80 wt.
white spring front
red spring rear
front camber 2 degrees
rear camber 3 degrees
front toe neg 1
rear toe 2
roll center inside upper front and rear
100,000 front diff.
10,000 rear diff.
7mm ride ht frnt.
8mm ride ht rear
front sway bar 90degrees
rear sway bar 0degrees

In our track this gives me great steering and not too much body roll. If you need less steering go up in front diff oil, or if you need more then go down. I've also used 80wt. in front shocks (as it comes from the factory) with good results. I use stand up shocks all around with maxvelocityracing carbon kit. But the stock setup work very ggod also. Another friend of mine uses 300K up front and he likes it but I prefer a car with more steering. To go up to 500K at least in my track is to push a lot in the turns. When are you comming back to Puerto Rico it's been too long.
