    Now that's how .21TM Jato is supposed to run. Great job MRB1GG. Geared for good all around performance, just pure fun. Good low mid and top speed, easy to tune and reliable.

    I don't think much of anything can get you outta the whole with those foams hookin up like that on stock gearing.

    BTW, what K, you running in the diff?

    i was thinking of locking mine to. if you do let us know how it works. i put 50k in and i think the back slids out a lot when theres no traction. but i love it for the street.

    I went up to 300K and it still didn't lock it, but made a huge difference. I could get on it much harder and both wheels hook up instead of lossing it off to one side.

    I here the MIP ball diff, is nice, can be adjusted down or locked while still allowing the dif gears to spin more freely.

    i tried the 300k but under heavy acceleration it would still break one tire loose unfortunatley with the grease it will too i have a spare diff so i think jb weld or something like that is in its future

    Lets do it Justleanit

    MRB1GG, im running locked diff right now, my only problem is the left tire that have exhaust fume on it, with anacondas it just want to spin toward the left.

    Once clean you can see the added traction though Wheelies are more easier in second gear and seem to pull quicker off the line.

    Keep us posted about the setup!
