gentleman81,
I picked up diff parts from Ashford hobbys. Robert got me all the parts I needed. I notieced on ebay you an buy a rear diff and use the parts from it.

As for diff oil, on a small track 10000, but try 50000 or 100000 and see if you like drving with that. Will give you lots of braking power...

Try more camber, 4deg. in the rear, 3deg. in the front, you can also try slowing your servo speed down so the car wont be so twitchy with your radio input.Also try a stiffer sway bar.
The track here Is wuite bumpy... The further I can go on the thick side is 600wt I'll maybe use some white all around... or maybe the pink...
I don't think the probelm is on the servo speed as when I have the rolling probelm is a section where I am veeery smooth... Sway bar stiffness is on the max...

Hey Bivens, you guys coming down this weekend to run the new layout at the Sugarbowl? The new layout is killer, and it's the 1st race of a summer series AROCC is putting on now that we're renting the track.

Hope to see ya there!!

The tank lid is different and is available as a spare part. The tank itself is the same.
