Well wozzies apart, crashes car is one of the most stable and FASTEST on the track !
Very interesting - certainly from my experience of the solid, I would say my car was quicker on my track with the soild

I'm currently using it also with the 2.5 mm rear sway bar.
Is the "it" a diff? If so, is it set tight?

Also D sometimes "drops" a false ring - gets Sow and myself into lots of trouble when we try to use it

Yeah. Especially on your track, a car equipped with a JP FX engine and a good braking would be advantages. You can swoosh here and there very quickly with late braking.

No. "It" was referring to the solid front axle.

The rear diff is set reasonably tight. Slightly tighter than I would with a oneway.

Is that the 3 mm roll bar you were using?

I may need to test out the rear diff and tighten them to see if my findings are the same as yours with the solid front.

Yeah, even the Moogies were commenting on my swooshing - eat dust man

I would be interested to hear if your findings with the tightened rear diff are the same as mine - it seemed to make a big difference for me

On the kind of tracks we run on, the choices are either the solid or diff....I've run the solid on several occasions and find them really nice, but I suffer off power steering badly on medium speed to high speed corners. On power is NICE though. Very stable and the car straightens out really quickly. The diffs are the ones I'm most comfortable with as they give me very nice and neutral handling on most of the corners we have on our local track. Unlike the solids, off power steering is very easily managed and clipping the apex is much easier...on power the car tends to slide out a little though, but i'm trying a stiffer rear roll bar setup which helps a little plus a very stiff front diff. One ways are a NO NO for me now...not on the kinda circuits we run on. I'm using Rene's PreWorlds setup on my car and i find it to be very neutral...which kinda suit my driving style at the moment...

Thanks for the info. I'm more consistant with the soild versus the one-way. My track only has two braking points, but one is from 70kph down to almost 0 and it is very easy to loose control under braking - no such problems with the solid.

I'd be interested if you would try stiffening the rear diiff, what difference it would make to off power steering - seemed to work for me.

I will have to do some timed laps to compare the solid with the one-way, as I fear that with the solid, it may appear faster, but may turn out to be slower
