dont need to search fish !!

the CVDs front and rear are the same thing and the difference of it is that you have two o-rings in the front CVD pack. you only need to use the o-rings if you are using front one way and the o-rings are put into the oneway outdrive to keep the outdrive shaft in place. if you are using a front diff, you dont need the o-ring as the diff outdrive will not fall out by itself.

Perhaps, using a very long long fuel line tubing?

i think the length of the fuel tubing can affect engine tuning

Did some measurements to mine and concluded that rather than having 75cc in the sum of fuel tank and fuel line I got only 70cc, so plan to add those 5cc that rests to have the maximum amount.

If you do take care and time for measuring it or you may face problems if you find a itchy tech inspector.
Are you gonna strecht your tank using heat?? j/k

i know that if traction is high too soft a front tire will cause a traction roll and also i always try to use the hardest tire i can get traction with that way i will have the least amount of tire wear possible

then wouldn't the wear rate be higher on the rear then the front?

or is there a way i could set the car to fit a soft front n hard rear and will not traction roll and have even wear rate on both front n rear?

sorry to ask so beginner questions.

too long a fuel tubing will have not enuff back pressure for the fuel to flow properly right?

unfortunatly your right the rear tires always wear faster than the fronts

if you could get your car to handle well and wear tires even front and rear you would truely have something

that uneven wear is the main reason that i always use the same shore rating front and rear

as you may or may not know is most foam tires are different hardness for front and rear tires

The local new track is made up of 2 tennis court with high traction.
high speed smooth flowing with a techincal infield.

shocks set to lowest hole
ackerman B
purple springs
40 shore front n back
ride height 4mm front 5 mm back

droop, toe in/out and camber are stock

the car does well on the sweepers and infield
but have problem turning in fast eunff for the u-turns n right angle corners.

what are the textbook solutions for making the car turn real fast on u-turns and right angle corners?
