Default Capricorn C803 1/8 On-road

Was reading the EFRA report from Round 1, and saw the statement Rick V. ran a front diff??? is this an option now for The C802 / C803 series???

I was going to ask in the C802 thread, but thats been pretty dormant, and given they have a new chassis now, perhaps this would be a new thread.

intrigued by the diff option though. Having brakes all the way around would be weird!

So is it a Diff with a regular pully carrier, so that you can swap pulleys once needed?

This is kinda cool, although I am sure with the "brake-ability" it would take some getting used to. But on slippery tracks perhaps this will help stability wise on corner entry?

Efra has a silmilar rule in section 6.13 of the 2016 handbook.

Unless the front pulley carries the one way? Is the diff in lieu of a one way setup? I do not know how the Capricorn diff is setup to work according to the rules.

Baically it is the same rule as with the 1/10 cars but it was made w/o the existance of a front diff as like the 1/10 has. But the rule is clear, all is alowed as long it is using the same brake of the rear axle.

Perhaps it has some kind of fluid coupling? Where the "speed" of the free wheeling is adjustable via diff oil, but the 2 axles are not connected, just like a oneway...

well if the diff is made available 'i may just give it a try because its obvious it work very well for Rick'V ' I'm sure who else is testing the diff! the new chassis is also very unique too! the Capricorn is leading in innovation! I'm also looking to test the new short front lower A arms next month to see if they are useful and for what track layout!!
