Anyway, Is there a quicker way of getting hold of Mr Bervoets? I will go onto the myTSN Forum and post, but I am checking for a quicker way?

The run was good, though - I was really happy with the way the car felt. Found out whilst checking the shocks that I hadn't tightened the lower cap (the one with the rubber seal inside of it) DOH! But now all is ok.
I was going to try some 37 tyres today, but the way the weather is, I've got no chance!

I tried that setup. Apparently it makes the front end tires lift up a little on throttle. It looks like as if it was doing wheelies...

So you think the one-way would work best, not the ball diff?

The track we ran last weekend was bumpy. So I guess more droop was required. Rene's setup used a front droop of +2.

I use Mobil 1. But it should not matter. Lube it so that for the first few minutes, the bearings get lubricated first. Then as you run, the castor / synthetic oil should take over and lube the internals and all the bearings.

It would depend heavily on your driving style. If you're smooth, you can be very fast on that track with a oneway. I'd say try them both out and see how it goes. The front ball diff is more forgiving. If you're racing and it's there's a lot of traffic, the front ball diff can be very useful.

With the Loletta shell and no fuel, front ball diff, 60 mm tires and no PT, mine came in at 1780 grams. I actually put about 80 grams extra on the left side of the car near the tank to balance the car up.

Titanium screws and 2 speed mainshaft only with Tornado external fuel filter.
