Its so quick, even on 4s. Currently geared for around 50mph and I'd say it definitely does that. The only oil I had spare for the diff was 3k though, so the front wheels do spin up quite a bit.

Looking forward to giving it a proper test on Sunday cool

Matt.

Cheers Mark, it feels good to have something a little more custom than the usual stuff :D

Oh and I can't afford one of those Slipperentials, and to be honest I'm not sure on their reliability either whistling I won't be running silly power all the time so I should hopefully be ok.

nice mat, the biggest problem i had was keeping the heavy batteries in. I have a spare RCM battery holder if you have issues looks pretty secure though
