The car will have no off power steering with a locked front diff, all you are doing is making the car slower on turns and also making the car understeer in general.

To really appreciate the 960, WC is not the place to get the feel. I have had the 960 the longest from the WC crew. The 960 loves open tracks. (Floyd Bennett, 301 and Middlesex county comunity). Most of us still have our 710's so keep that and get a 960 to go along with it!!

Lee, hook him up!!

Good to hear that!
I'm very new to this hobby and my driving sux. I drive both 710 & 960 at Floyd Bennet and You are the first person that said a good thing about Snakes. All I hear from Floyd's guys is "go real, get mugen"

I have both serpents 950R and 710 and I think both cars are very competitive and crazy fun to drive. I also race both cars at WC AKA ( DUB C), just recently with the 950r and i opened it up just fine.

I have the aluminum bushing set. & they seem to make my Chassis quicker .
I think they hold the 12x18 bearings in-line Better than the plastic ones.
