I've just switched to a 50k wt diff up front with the LSD rear diff, the twitchy nature of the car has gone so I can now fight the track and not the car.

Nimo, what size and what kind of traction does Aldershot have? Is it pretty smooth or semi-bumpy? Your settings sound like they may work pretty good at my track, so I'd like to try them out at our next meet.

Log in to 3hobby.net (link below) then go to the downloads and then AMCC.
There you will find about 8 videos IC action from my track.
A smooth 155ft slight uphill main straight into a banked corner which has a couple of bumps.

$80 for the TCD gear set is a lot of cash. Is it worth it?

Cheers

it's been out ever since the V1R was launched some 5 years or so ago
I don't know the current price or availability, I just had it sitting in my parts bin so I made use of it.
It was tried in the FW05 but with negative results.

Default Cheapest RRR WC

Who has the cheapest (and in stock) V-One RRR WC out there? I have seen them for 450.00 US. My daughter's and I have been running RR Evo's for some time now and although they are still fast, a few parts are not so easy to come by, atleast here in the US.

TCD' s are kinda like torsen diffs, they don't quite work the same as a torsen though. TCD's help to keep the wheel with the least amount of traction from unloading. I ran them sometimes in off road.
