I'll be using it in a race this weekend. Don't expect too much from the results though ! It's a huge track which would be very suitable for oneway but traction is lacking. So a ball diff would make driving more consistant.
Would you be using the ball diff in preference to a solid axel in future? or is this just for tracks which have less grip?

Cheers, Mark.

If you have a lot of traction, then oneway is nice and fast. You turn the car and the rear follows the car at full speed. Braking and slowing down is also easier with more traction. Imagine even having 4WD brakes, the car slides and drifts on this track !

The reason to go with full time diffs is due to the available traction on the track...

He holds up pretty well in winter Some poor Indian colleagues couldn't believe it can get so cold in winter. They were suppoed to be here for a six month period, but after a couple of weeks of -10 to -15 during the day they decided that six months was far too long

The shell is too nice ! Busy preparing for a race tomorrow. Lola shell on a very high speed track.

Since it's going to be a long weekend for us here (Monday and Tuesday bank holidays), I'm looking forward to burning a lot of nitro and rubber ! Perhaps when there's nobody on the track, I'll bring out the P R E C I O U Ssss shell designed by Gollum Paintwerks !

The solid axle is nice if you have to do braking at apexes after a high speed. Perhaps on smaller, tighter and more technical tracks... Not recommended if you have high speed sweepers. Slows the car down.

The ball diff on the other hand is pretty flexible. As this track that I'm going to race on has fast sweeping corners but with not much traction, the front ball diff is more beneficial to drivers of my calibre ! Just my 2 cents.

Hey guys.. if all goes well, I will have my mailbox set up on my mobile, so then I can get the pics of the previously thought to be TINY track, took pics on tuesday. In time for friday pics.... It is a nice track, with no barriers, just paint and fence, I will try to keep away from it though.

Perhaps for us useless guys we should be able to get some kind of stabalisers for our cars - you know like the things people put on bicycles when the can't ride them

ROTFLMAO !

But seriously, I believe last time they had gyros on RC cars which stabilises the car when cornering !

I have monday off, The better half is doing her driver's license. I have been training her for ages...

I was offered a job by BMW to be an Advanced Driving instructor in Dubai, I used to do the Demonstrations on the skid pan for the trainees. Two or three days before I left, the Dubai guys said... 'Sorry, we have just signed a deal with some other guys...'

Man I was pi$$ed... That was around USD 20000 to USD 25000 per month... And my own BMW 330i or M3...

At least the other half will know how to do decent handbrake turns and powerslides for her test.
