What are you guys doing to put a spool or a diff in the front.
If you put the roll inserts in so that the pivot hole is at the bottom at the rear you wont get much droop

I use the highest setting but then dont use any droop as it gives traction roll

I've gone the other way
I'm using the lowest hole and 2 degree toe in with 2 degree camber, also have the shocks laid down with green 1.9 rears.
Using this I have got the V1RRR to have almost as much rear grip than the FW05, but I now have a load more front on power grip, all this with GQ 42's when the FW05 needed 37's.

Thats the setup i used at Aldershot. It dont work at Ashby. The car darts about like a drunken terrier unless you raise the roll centre. What about roll bars? I dont use one at the back and have the front full on and am using the FW front one thats a lot thicker than the RRR one.

Cheers

Do you guys need to cut off some of the sponge at the front of the car to accomodate the BODY SHELL?

Cause i have HPI GTR R34 and a Mazda RX-8 body shell and it fits perfect everywhere except for the sponge in front which is too wide.

I am getting the Protoform Mazda 6 soon and does the mazda 6 fits perfectly?

What kind of tire wear do you have with this setup? I am running 35's in the rear and I am having excessive tire wear. Could be my driving though...

3racing makes one out of aluminum that should be considerably stronger.

Yep, the 3-Racing solid axle adaptor is the way to go if you plan on running a solid front diff....the plastic block will eventually strip.

this may have been asked before but what is the difference between the 0 deg knuckles and the 2deg knuckles? which one gives more steering?

The 0 deg should be more responsive and the 2 degree will be smoother coming in to the turn and should give more exit steering.

The diff and look is too heavy. The guys here get a one way spool and push out the bearings then lock the outdrives in the spool with a collet. Its about half the weight and you dont have the problem of the steering linkage hitting the diff case

Go harder !!!
I found the RRR undrivable on 35's, loose on 37's, good on 40's, better on 42's.
Also the harder you can run then less tyre wear you get.
