    Traxxas Center Differential...

    Has anyone here put one in a KB Rally?
    Is it worthwhile?
    How did it change the way the car drives/handles?

    Well...I guess nobody has tried it.
    I guess I'm going to install it and give it a shot.
    If I don't like it I can always take it back out.

    I think it more depends on what kind of conditions you use your car in.

    All Off-road
    Off-road and On-road
    or just On-road

    Diffs are usually suited better for racing.
    Everything overpowered...

    Let me say this...I run 3s in my car.
    At anything under about 3/4 throttle on asphalt or pavement...grabbing full throttle immediately makes the rear end try to outrun the front.lol.
    It spins out really easy.Luckily it very rarely flips...even at 40mph+ blasts.
    Now it makes it really fun to drift...but makes straight line high speed runs really difficult.
    I was just curious if the center diff would help this.

    I have the center diff in all of mine. They are all brushless with the high speed gearing. I put it in to keep the front end down on speed runs (no wheelies). They seem to handle well with it. I'm running 100K wt oil in them. I use tires with plenty of grip (HPI X-Patterns).

    I'll try anything once, maybe twice!

    Have you ever ran any of the cheap treaded tires you can get on ebay?

    I have a couple sets of the Integy chrome wheels with treaded tires. They look cool...but I'm almost afraid to run them on my KB. I'm sure the 1/10 Castle 5700kv motor won't be too kind on them.
