Gear diff or ball diff? What oil? Last year I ran a gear diff with 500k Traxxas oil. I could feel it diff out and lose accelleration on exit in 17.5, but I never felt that in scale spec. The gear diff definitely felt better on entry and mid corner in 17.5, but the spool was faster. I never got a chance to try the spool in SS, though.

I've had solid results with a ball diff and slipper pads, of course not as stout as a spool but then again I also haven't busted anything up front after a big hit, either.

A request from your friendly RD...

Along with a new venue, we have a new race computer for this season. In an effort to see this Saturday go as smoothly as possible, I would like to load names, classes, frequencies, and ptx #'s in ahead of time. So, if you please, and if and as you are able, forward those to me via PM or email to [email protected]

Grazie!

Have a few questions regarding 1/12 scale. I'm planning on buying the new CRC car.

What tires work best with the CRC cars? Also what other items should I purchase with the car? Springs? Spacers? Anything else? I do plan to buy the slapmaster thrust bearing. .

A 12R5.2 will be all you need with that..

Stock last year ran BLK FR and YEL R, pretty sure the .25 axle height spacer kit..

Not even sure that helps or if I have a clue..

Tried a gear diff in the front of my Scale Spec TC6 last year. The car sort of would turn in nice but was mildly pushy in the middle and especially pig-like on the way out of corners. This with either thick or thin oil in the diff; didn't seem to matter. Could probably have tuned out the bad turning characteristics if I knew more about tuning but ...

I put my beloved slipper spool back in and, like magic, the car turned in nice, stuck in the middle and stuck on the way out of corners.

Cast my vote for The Spool.

Default Another tub request

Hey Sean, any chance you might have some 48p spur gears you could toss in the tub? I'm looking for 64 and/or 66 tooth specifically.

Muchas grassy-ass.

How thick did you go on the oil? Did the bad turning characteristics correspond with throttle application? How much droop did you run in the front (a little or a lot)?

Franko, what weight oil did you run?

Hey Mike Glad to see you get a 12th scale... the new CRC car will not require the rear ride height spacers. they have a new rear pod with adj rear ride height. Front shim kit's for ride height, axle shims, rear axel shims, side spring kit, and damper tube lube is about all you would need. the new car should be dialed.

The thick stuff I used was from a tube of silicone oil I've had laying around the garage from who knows how long ago. Much thicker than the thickest shock oil; not quite as thick as CRC tube lube.

On or off throttle, sort of would turn mid-corner didn't want to turn much at all coming out of the corner. Was especially bad on throttle.

Car was set up with about 3mm of droop front and rear.

Last year I ran the double gear diff with 1000wt. on silver can motor. you have to be smooth coming out the corner...other wise is will push out
