Judging by the 3racing shocks I got for my brothers Tamiya tt01, no way. The Kyosho shocks are fine. If I were to change the shocks on my car I would go for either Tamiya TRFs, 720 or NT1 shocks only.

Default Front diff installation problem.

Need help here... I tried install front diff into my Evo2 but the front pulley was rubbing the bulkhead. That make the diff set not free running and bind.!! I also tried to shim them but it doesn't solve the problem .

hi try these few things to troubleshoot

take of the the front diff undo all pulley and diff screws and do them up again .
secondly take note there should be a lip of plastic just after the pulley where the diff bearing sits . Some time the lip wears of cos of the bearing rubbing on it or if there is dirt in between .This lip is what maintenance the gap btw ur diff housing and the bulkhead. In the case of no lip replace the housing. If all these things seem right there could be a bit of manufacturing defect on the bulk head or the pulley . in that case i would either replace the bulkhead or get a piece of sand paper between the pulley and the bulkhead and rotate the wheel/diff till the binding part sands off .
hope this help
p.s check if the belts tension adjusters are same on both sides

Default 3 mm difference

there is a 2 mm difference with the 23tooth pulley.what is the point of the 2 mm difference? does the car handle better? i run my tires about the same diameter.

The 27 tooht front diff sprocket when used with a "Gear Diff Housing", can not have the "side lip" that the instruction tells you to CA glue to the sprocket. If you glued this part to the front sprocket it will not work. I realised this when I tried to change from a Oneway diff to a gear diff. Had to get another drive pulley set.

Hope this helps.

I have the Evo2 WC & have not had an issue with the front diff I would also double check that you have the right eccentrics in place & ensure your belts are aligned correctly on top of what was recommended

finally overdrive ratio
on tracks that have very low tire wear it is recommended to run the 24t pulley to compensate the over drive with a 1mm tire split

so in a low tire wear track would you still true the tires to a 2 mm split or 1 mm . and also using a 24 teeth pulley does it mean that there is equal drive front to rear compared to a 23 t pulley.
would like to hear a bit more about it as i dont have a very good understanding about the diver ratios

Yes I would if the track calls for it some Kyosho Team drivers went to the 24-tooth pulley with a 1mm tire split since the traction was very high but the wear was very low it calmed the car a bit on steering which was not needed due to the track bite.
I know another driver who runs the the 1mm tire split & uses the 23 tooth pulley & it is more to his liking. trila & error you just have to try it out & see what more has a better feel for you.
