So B4, you've already solved that rear swinging out on power out of the corners?

Ummm, we need to get that beacon to signal Julius out of the cockpit !

I believe a tightly set diff will still diff out on power. It's a balance of both worlds. It allows you to off throttle better into corners.

D,

I'll know for sure this weekend. But it was good enough as it is to give me 1,2,1,1 places in my last four races. I have the solid diff to put in if I can't cure this problem. I would think tyre wear might be an issue with the solid.

Mark you didn't mention tyre wear, is it the same as the oneway ?

For me, I always want the front tires to wear at the same rate than the rears. Something which I cannot seem to get with a oneway or with a front ball without resorting to one grade softer tires in the front or using the new Ellegi tires all around.

There is no Gear diff available for the 710 - not sure if there would be an advantage to having a gear diff or not.

D, looks like you teritory

Guys,

Could be time to create a Ring roster on 3hobby so all parties are aware of the scheduled ring bearer.

Calvin, Mark is correct. Only ball diff is available. Why do you need a gear diff when you need to mess around with the diff lube when you can tune the ball diff to infinite possibilities on the track without taking off the diff?

And no, the ball diff is pretty bullet proof. Not like some other cars where the diffs will wear out very fast. This is because the ball diffs on the 710 does not use pressure of the balls on the plates to set the diff tightness but rather rely on a plastic clamp system to set the diff tightness. I still have the same rear ball diffs and plates after close to 11 months of usage.

If you have any question, please do not be afraid to shoot.

Yeah. There's been a power tussle with Onkel Sow and myself and as such that Mark comes in now and then to try and take advantage and swoosh it from us too.
