Thanks. Alot of hardwork is paying off for us, but its only the beginning. Wait until the on-road track gets the perminant berms put in . The on-road track with the boards is only temporary.

This was easy to understand and i'm sure it will help a lot of people out there having issues with their 2-speed. Thanks a lot.

I haven't run the car yet so I have no idea how hard it will engage. I just want to try and set everything up as best I can before our first race. Thanks.
is this gap even adjustable?

On a small tight track. Would a one-way setup be best or the front diff. be better. I was told to setup with a diff. but just wanted to ask. The track is about the size of NorCal.

I'm not familiar with the track, but what is the size? If it has a lot of tight turns then a gear diff would be to use. Some would even use a solid axle upfront.

If it's like NorCal's track ( photos below ), run a spool.

Thanks Roger! I noticed you put the 4mm chassis on. Is that for high bite tracks? Dave
