I've been at a Wargaming convention since thursday. Last week my OB4 front diff blew out. Havent opened it up yet.
But when I put the 100,000 wt in it I saw the wear marks were a little to the outside, so I put in some washers.

NO!!!

NO!!!
Get the front oneway to replace the worn front diff. It is a very good investment.

Manticore: I've already ordered the Ball diff for the rear, & one way for the front. Steve from Ofna told me thats what he runs, & was planning on going that way. I was waiting to develop my skills a little. Now I'm used to almost no brake, & I drive thru a corner throttle on.

I have a bit of a problem I've been fighting for the last couple of months in my setup. My car comes into a coner with lots of grip but when i come out of the coner and I hit the throttle the back end washes out on me some of the time.I figure i might need to go with a harder spring in the rear or same all around.But what do you guys think.

My Set up after extensive use
Camber: front 1 rear 1.5
Toe: front in 1 rear 3
Diff oil: front 100,00 rear 50,000
shock oil: 50 all around
springs: front yellow (hard) rear blue (soft)
swaybars: front only
ride hight: 5mm both ends
Caster: medium in front and thin spacer in rear
Engine: RB .12 side exhaust with MIP header and GH ringed pipe This combo is the best I've evered used.Lots of power almost to much.

No sway bar on the rear , eh? That w'd be my 1st guess.

Got the front one way in. I should have it ready to run for sat. night.

Hows that one way working out. Any difference. I have a one way but wanted to know if itsany good before I stick it my car.

How much is that aluminum cross brace. I'm slowly aluminizing my car. so far I got front and rear bulkheads. Main shaft Bulkhead, Main shaft bearing bulkhead, middle shaft blocks, rear block cover, and aluminum side belt tensioner.

I ran a few tanks sat nite, None of the Impulse guys were there. But thats OK cause I was having motor tuning problems, I think comes from an air leak, WHEW! The one way lets get thru the twistites a little nicer, er ah faster. BUT, now I'm leaning more, so the inside rear tire lifts more causing a premature shift into 2nd. Time to take out the 50wt shock oil & get the 60wt. Before I do that I'll redo my sway bars ( ya know thw ball & cup thingy).
Overall I instantly liked the one ways, I was already using almost no brake. So my driving style is good for the one way.

Smile My new body...

My new body is finally done... This one won't chip!!
How do you like my new CS27s?? They give a lot more traction then the stock OB4 tires, I would say they give about 3x more!!
