Mostly the diff also plays a role in gearing down the engine revs. The gear driving the diff then has less teeth then the diff crown gear for instance. In buggies this ratio is often around 3:1

I do have a manual with numbers near the parts, and with a chart on the next page, you can combine numbers with part names. Would that help?

Ah, direct link is not supported I see. On the 404 page, click "rc manuals" and then "car and trucks".

Glad it worked now. Be sure to check other brands manuals as well, as some tend to use different descriptions, so you get more aquainted with those differences.

3 bearings holding the wheel axle? Is the car going to be that heavy? Otherwise, extra bearings, even though these runs smooth, will add extra friction.

A-Arm test with a temp block to hold the arms. still need to tinker with the caster->A-arm connections, but its looking pretty good (to me)

Do you have the blocks angled or vertical? On competition buggies often the angle is altered for better handling. Do you have a car with you to occasionally have a peek at?
