    Johnny ringo where are those pics with your lid on? I want to see how your fueling from the side. I cut the rear out from the motor side to the tank side with the jconcepts body. It works just fine but the look is off some for my taste. Are you going to run the shims on your pivot balls, suspension arms and turn buckles. It looked like a male female adapter but on your toe links how are you reversing the threads. Could it be done with just the pivots running to your axle carriers and leave the rest alone?

    Atmo,

    I ran out of time on cutting out my lid. My gear is on its way to Spokane Wa for the Hank Perry race next weekend. I promise to snap a picture when I get there.

    I use a Jato fuel tank pull ring and run it out what would be the back window. The violator tank allows you to mount the lid either way.

    Not sure I understand the shims question. Are you talking about the set screws on my arms and carriers?

    No you guys had this extensions on your A-arms that conected to and extended out for your pivot balls about an 1/2 inch. But they had them on there toelinks and turnbuckles as well. They look like a male female adapter that you can get at Ace hardware except for your toelinks and turnbuckles you would need a reverse thread on one end. It looked like a dallas thing. I guess you didn't have them but a couple of you guys had them. Thanks for the pic

    losijon,

    No, I don't answer phones. Though that Chris races locally and does pretty well. We keep trying to get him out to a bigger race but haven't been able to sway him as of yet.

    Chris and Steve, thanks for the replies on the center diffs. I heard you guys are using 300k as your basic set-up instead of the 150k stock. Is this your typical set-up for larger tracks? That stuff is like tooth paste. My set-up is in my sig. so I run a pretty stiff agressive driving set-up. I try to push and muscle my truck pretty hard thru the turns and wanted to get your thought on the higher diffs settings.

    instead of the 150k stock.
    FWIW, stock is 100k. Just wanted to clarify that. I've been using a 200k mix myself the past couple of weekends. It's working well for the tracks I've been on.

    Misbehavin What kind of driving style? Are you filling it up all the way or doing the half full?

    Sorry. I know nothing more about the arrival date than you do. I will say don't rely too heavily on Tower though, as some people tend to use that as a basis for their predictions. I seen Tower dates pushed back, and I've also seen dates a month off disappear with "in stock" showing up within hours. So Tower's estimations are nothing more than a wild estimate at times.

    Misbehavin What kind of driving style? Are you filling it up all the way or doing the half full?
    My driving style is a mix. I generally try to roll into corners smoothly with just enough brake needed, but at times I'll take a point and shoot approach in some corners. I have a more conservative driving style than most though.

    I'm filling the diff full, just like I do with my front and rear diffs. I don't like to add other variables into the equation, as "half full" can vary some from refill to refill. Just custom-blending diff oil throws me into a paranoid tizzy, so I tend to mix a large quantity at a time so the action is consistant between refills.

    That is so sweet I'm 1 hour west of spokane and plan on coming in to watch the races. I hope to meet some of the guys from this forum there. I'm fairly new to the hobby and this will be my first nitro race. Who's all planning on being at the Hank Perry in Spokane WA? Again I look forward to meeting some great RCers

    Tornado fuel is absolutly good. Here in Poland we're using both, Tronado and Runner Time and the engines run great, no sings of and damage. Personally, I prefer the second one

    Hey Shivers, what center diff wt. did you use at the "HANK". I was told Team RD was still using quick turn. I've tried 200k but seemed to unload a bit at my local track. Thanks for tip.

    Try some Kyosho 300,000 oil. You can also use Associated 300,000 but to me the Kyosho seemed more consistent.

    Redman,

    I ran 300K in the center and with the loose track conditions 60K in the front diff with 10K in the rear. The truck pulled well out of the corners.
