I was put off ball diffs for a long time after running one in my KD. I was lucky if it lasted 2 meetings. Atrocious.

I personally run a YZ-2 DTM that's had a few bits fitted to bring it more or less inline with a CA...

It also amazes me how so many people simply don't bother trimming their steering regularly - and then have to keep correcting their car down the straight :D

If you're running the stand up gearbox you probably can't go too far wrong with copying a yz-2 DT loose dirt setup and going from there. They are pretty similar cars.

ISDT Q6 or similar

My existing charger (dynamite quad) is awesome but weights a ton.

I'm looking for an ISDT unit to take with me to meetings. With or without power supply.
