Inspecting the housing, there is VERY LITTLE clearance between the ring gear and the gearbox itself. Suspecting this as the source of the bind I shaved a bit of gearbox plastic material away and it seemed to help. I got them moving in the gearbox smoothly (or so I thought).

However, now that everything is installed onto the chasis... at least one of the three gearboxes is still binding (extra friction, not freezing) on part of the rotation.

Is this a known problem with a known fix? Will the bind work itself out after I run it for a bit (the metal ring gears chewing through whatever plastic is binding and then running free?).

Thanks in ad ance for any pointers!
I had the same problem on the front diff and I found the ring gear was rubbing on the top of the front half of the front case used a dremel and problem solved

Here is what I did with the thumb screws if anyone wants to try this...
I put a piece of 1/8" foam unter the battery strap,
That raised the strap up enough so that the thumb screw only went on to the posts about half way when everything got snug,
That gave me enough room in the thumb screw to put a 5-40x1/8" set screw.
Like Casper said I locked the front post in place also with a set screwand leave it in place all the time and when I put the rear one on I snug the thumb screw and lock it in place with the set screw

All day I never had to crank down on the thumb screws so the battery strap didn't bow up and the set screws kept me fom losing the thumb screws

Would like to know the same thing. Any info would be greatly appreciated. But no info leaves us clueless! Last we heard they may not have been on the same boat, which sounds like they were not!

Riverdale, take a step back, relax, and realize it's ALL business. They'll be out soon and that extra 2-4 weeks won't matter in August.

Or join us in the dark side.

Cheers


Those pistons have holes that are too big and will not generate enough pack for this truck.


I ran them on sunday and she worked well!


Lol... Can I have a tie breaker on this one?

Also has some noteable disadvantages. Tekno may have kits available but have a stub axle issue that you can not get if yours breaks (saw 2 on Saturday at TNS). This thread should not be used to determine which 4x SC is the best I am simply proving every manufacture has their issues.

Hang in there bud they will be here soon. Ryan addressed this issue and is very upset about it himself. Some things are not in his or our control. It is worth the wait I can tell you that. Evolution Sports in Redlands has a kit in the shelf. If you are interested tell Louis I sent you he will take care of you!

Good man! I probably will not be able to get to the track until weekend after next with how busy I am at work.... if that makes you feel better. Dont know whats worse having the truck and not being able to drive it or not having it.

My wife was like "just drive it in the street if you want to drive it so bad". I go " um, no, you dont understand. This is a race machine". And thats when she realized im a total... total rc nerd.

Anyways hahaha. The build went good just waiting on a 275mm sensor wire and paint.


(Dont forget your 275mm sensor wires everyone) I recommend TQ Wire!!!!

After reading other replies/posts I rebuilt my gearboxes and all is smooth now. The front gear box needed a bit more shaving for the ring gear to clear... And the rear box had a bearing that wasn't pushed all the way on the diff. I had to sand down the diff casing gently for the bearing to slide on w/o applying bearing warping force. Now it's silky smooth. A PITA compared to the associated RC8.2E build I did a few months back... But I do like the lower parts count on the Losi gearboxes and now that they are working I'm back in love with the car.

I also had this problem on the front diff when upgrading to the TLR332001's caused my car to overheat.
I've heard this from a lot of people by now, is this related to the new diff's or diff housings ?
