Aussies: Are you going to drop your NT1 for it? Speaking of which have you noticed any inconsistancy with the 2 speed as yet? I heard you have to "upgrade" the springs in the 2 speed for it to improve.

Default spool push

anyone knows the best or most effective way(s) to reduce or get rid of the 'push' when using front spool?

or it'll always be there no matter what you do?

Go to using a diff makes all the the difference in the world I had the same problem Talk to one of the sponsor racer at our local track he suggested using a diff with 100,000 wt or higher in the front & 30,000 in rear I probably won't ever go back to using a solid(spool) having a diff no more of a push and the car to me handles and drive better, give it a try you won't be disappointed you can always go back to using a spool..

Using 100,000 weight diff oil at the front and 30,000 - 50,000 at the rear is the conventional teaching. However using a very light oil at the rear seem to work better at my home club, and could be worth trying. You could also go for an even heavier front diff oil like say 300,000 at the front to limit the slip little more, without causing too much push.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

does anyone know what diff oil thickness they build the diffs with, for the g4js? the manual comes with setup sheets, one filled out for a starting setup and lists, 30k up front and 10k in rear. I'm wondering if that's what they built it with. anyone know for sure?

Most probably But i would empty them and put 100k up front and 10k-30k in the rear depending on traction levels where you race.


Also i have two questions: 1) How do you guys set up your ride height. I have set up wheels that are 65mm in diameter but when i set up on them the ride height is over 10mm Should i use the the size tyres that i will run with? But if i do that wont the ride height change as the tyres are getting smaller

2) Can someone clear up what happens when using different holes in mounting the rear camber links. For example: there are two vertical rows of three holes. What would happen when you move the link in or out apart from making the link longer? I understand what happens when you move it up or down
