Try Pro Shop Futaba ([email protected]) or Champ RC (champ_internati[email protected]). Email them and give them the part number(s) and they will quote you.

I think one is rubber tire edition and the other foam edition. So if you got the foam edition don't worry about the other one.

Help!! Off Power push. I run on a medium bite medium size track with a lot of 180's. I run RRR wc box stock setup, The only thing I've changed was Gold springs in the rear and silvers up front. Shocks are stood up on both towers.
I've tried the Diff and onway with this setup but I still get that push. Anybody out their with a good front Diff set up? With all those 180's thought a diff might be better. Have not tried a spool yet.

More droop in the rear, less castor, lighter rear diff oil, lay down your front shocks, and hitting brakes would all help, but don't do all of them at the same time!

You need to get more weight transfer to the front of the car to give your more steering.....try the front shocks back in the stock mount position...having them stood up at the front will reduce weight transfer/steering.
Also check diff oil that its not too heavy in the front diff.....you`ll lose more off-power steering if/when you change to a spool unless you resetup the car for it.
Also check droop....take it back to the stock settings and work on tuning from here.
Cheers

I would think that with a lot of 180's you should use a spool, it gives more turn in and more on power steering than a diff but it will make the rear end step out when off power so watch out in any sweeping bends.

My track has a lot of sweepers which is faster with a one-way but the 2 main passing points are relying on heavy out braking moves so you need the brakes on the front end which is why I use a diff.

Use 30,000 wt. diff oil, up front, to increase diff action. This will increase your steering, in addition to, laying down the shocks w/ the softer spring. You may also want to use lighter shock oil. Move the spacers to the front of arms. The increase increase in castor will give you more off-power steering.

Thanks for the help.
I'm the pioneer RRR driver in a serpent and NTC3 world. The car was better than most with my jacked up setup. With the help on this forum this car is gonna be killer.

Is their a big difference in steering with the number 10 and 11 servo saver?
