    I have the J Concepts over tray. Works great in the winter. It definitely traps heat all other times of year.

    A narrower front end turns more, so inversely, a wider front end will turn less.
    That can be a good thing if you are trying to correct oversteer.
    A wider rig is generally more stable.

    19/90 is stock gearing. 30/83 is really high, unless you have a low kv motor.
    That’s speed run gearing, not good for bashing or sustained use. It will kill a vxl!

    There’s the linear white springs, 4# rating, which are stock on Rustlers and Stampedes.
    There’s the progressive white springs, 4# rating I believe, from the Slash.

    Oval racing is out there. Some awesome videos on YT of rcs racing on velodromes.
    I wish we could get that going locally for oval racing but not enough commitment.

    Well I found a stock diff, stuffed full of grease, hence the different feel.

    And I recall now I put a new spur in it and chewed it right away.

    Good point. Are the pads heat glazed? Is the disc blued at all?
    Check the bearing race at the clutch for melting/deformation.

    Your control arms are the biggest drag in grass and are the same for LCG and hcg.
    Bigger tires and shock positioning will help the clearance. Adjustable mounts will help too.
