I use the "rear spool" axle in the front instead of the rear and it works great. This gives you the best of both worlds. And no more leaky front case too.

I too have used the "rear" spool diff in the front. It does work real good.

How does the rear spool act in the front? I thought it wouldn't work in the front, hence the name "rear" spool.

Its also known as a solid axle. Check out HPI's site for a part number. Its a solid aluminum cylinder that replaces the planitary gears in the diff. locking it up. You loose some steering on initial turn in, but it pulls harder comming out of the turn since the inside wheel doesn't spin.

Its just an internal piece. Since the insides of the front and rear diffs are the same, it can be used on both.

Ahh IC. I was told not to go with that or the oneway from the LHS guys since it will make the car too loose though. Eh, I'll see what goes on. More interested in a new engine. Probably go with the RB V12 3 port turbo since it's good on bottom end and great on top end. Seems to have a better powerband compared to the Sirio.

Thanks Guys
If you set up the car exactly as the manual shows, you should have a great starting point. HPI uses spacers and shims to give you the setup. You can double check with an adjustable triangle or protractor too. If you are going to do any serious racing though, you should get yourself a setup station.

Ok so it's a rear diff case but with out the gears... Like the solid rear axle seen on the serpent's 235...

Now, does hpi make one for the R-40 or do I have to try with an aftermarket brand?

... Thanks for the expalnation...

Here is the solid axle we are talking about. While it is marketed as a "rear axle" it will physically fit in the front as well. For $16, a worthwhile option.

I was thinking of making a grafite chassis and other parts. I found a site psycho-tek.com that sells grafite by the sheet. would a 3mm sheet be strong enough for a chassis.

Default differential oil question

Hey Guys,
Easy question this time. I am rebuilding my differentials for race season, and the guy at the hobby shop just threw me some 3,000 and 5,000wt oil. I didnt think to ask what wt oil I should put in the front diff and what I should put in the rear diff. My question is what wt oil should I use in the front and what wt oil should I use in the back.
Thanks Guys
