So, there are new parts for this car? Can this car use a diff?

This is from RED RC.COM : Capricorn introduce new option parts in the form of Kevlar reinforced front and rear differential cases and Lab C801 Ergal shafts. Starting with the differential cases these are available as front and rear items, come made from Kevlar compound material and make for super smooth drivetrain action. The new parts also hold more oil for a more consistent differential action. Also new are Lab C801 shafts that come hard coated and machined from Ergal. They weight 25g less and make for a lighter drivetrain.

I had hit a wall earlier and think my motor moved. My car was the fastest and drove really good. I used the newer Protoform R18. It was smooth to drive. The 909 had a little better steering, but not as consistent.

If I did not put something or missed something on the set-up just ask and I will try to get the info.

Thanks,

I think it depends on if you run Tire Sauce also. In the US we use it and I know with using sauce I am only about 10-12mm from the bumper. Without Sauce then I use it around 15-17mm.
