it should come as a solid as default. easy to check, see if the pins are in. there is 2 grub screws as well. inside the drive cup to hold the pin in place. if you run it with out the grub screws tight, your likley to end up with a oneway after a while.

Not sure I like the one-way/spool.
It's good to have the two options in the one diff' thats for sure and again good to start with. Saves buying the two options.

But practically. They are heavy, only a little lighter then using a geared diff' (!) and you still have to take them out to change from spool to one-way or vise-versa.

Just my opinion but on the whole. They're good to start until you get the lighter, dedicated versions of the spool or one way.

Like Patto say's though. Ensure you have the set screws in the ends (Drive cups) to hold the pins in place when using the spool. They come out, even with the o-rings in place!

Regards
British Menace

I heard there was a problem with the stock fuel tank on the G4S. Something about the internal bracing causing air trapping problems. Did TM or Kfactory ever come out with a new tank?

British Menace-
I just bought Steve Perez's G4S. The car is totally new and box stock. He mentioned to me that you could help me with a good setup for a small track with high traction. Also, a good setup for the UFO clutch (I think thats the one that comes with the G4S).
Thanks!

Just finished the upgrades , love how it looks














I am using the premium power 1300 lipo as well ...u can see it in the pics... fits nicely I fitted the other part into the compartment with the micro receiver (from DX3R)

now I want to upgrade to 18T / 52T and 25T / 45T ... can someone tell me if that is OK for our Moorebank track by any chance ? I think it offers highest acceleration with best top speed with my RB V12 R3 ... thats if I understood all the ratios correctly....

cheers
