Magical inserts: Front Kick-up, Rear Toe-in and Anti-Squat. WHAT?

Since the announcement of the TLR 5th scale buggy we've received lots of questions regarding the extra setup and tuning options in this car compared with the 5ive-T. Multiple tuning options that will give the car a better handling. Adjustments where all the 10th and 8th scale drivers are already familiar with but we didn't have those options in 5th scale, yet!

Lesson 4: Differentials

Now it's time for probably the most interesting part of your vehicle, differentials! A 4WD Losi comes with three gear differentials: Front, Center and Rear. The TLR 22-4 comes with ball differentials and are out of scope for now. There is not much what you can change on gear differentials except the fluid.
