Just sayin'
I get your point but there is no perfect RC car. If every track was exactly the same, with exactly the same traction level all the way around, and every driver drove exactly the same, I think an optimal chassis setup and tire compound/tread profile could be engineered without too much trouble.

But even on the same track, conditions vary on different corners or jumps. You can have huge differences in traction level and how smooth the surface is within a few feet traveled.

The interaction between a race car, RC or full size, and the track enviironment is incredibly complex. That's part of why we keep getting new cars with new adjustments and geometries. Another reason is improvements in materials and manufacturing that make the cars more durable and or easier to work on.

You all need to chill out. Give the guy some credit I don't see anyone else, myself included trying to do any testing other than wearing out tires. This guy was curious so he gave it a shot. Pretty sad how quick everyone is to jump this guys rear for no reason.

Any who, I was wondering if anyone runs ceramic diff balls and if so what do you think?

Well said. And what works for me on a smooth clay track that has more traction than asphalt has literally no bearing on what works on an outdoor track. I just saw video of the JC super cup track, and it's like nothing we have here in AZ. So me telling people how great "XX" part performs here is really only relevant to my experiences here.

For the thrust they're awesome. For the diff, it'll matter the application. If not set correctly, they can ruin a set of rings quickly. They need to be set tight, and the rings can not be polished. I have experience with 1 diff I built, and it worked well. I however have gone back to the carbide balls because the ceramics did not allow a range of adjustment in my experience.

Now cue iScream and several others to tell me I'm wrong...

I have actually heard that very same statement from a few bench racers at the track. So it seems like you have experience with them, even if it's not much. I built a diff with them and man it's smooth but I'm worried it's gonna blow in a couple runs. I have it set tight too.

I've run them before. Risk vs. reward, they're not worth it IMO. A PROPERLY broke in diff with carbide balls in the diff and ceramics in the thrust will last months.



as for all the back and forth bickering, just knock it off....sheesh

If it's set "tight" it's not likely to blow. Like Socket said, the issue with them is the small tuning window. That's what tends to get most people into trouble.

Sub-forums are an excellent idea, in THEORY! Look around, people don't put stuff where it belongs now! People can't find the right section half the time let alone a correct thread, now you want/expect them to find and use a correct sub-forum. In the perfect world were you seem to be from, great idea. Here in reality where the rest of us live, we all realize it's not.

When out yesterday for the first time with a B5M and love it. Now my son wants one for himself. I guess I will be looking at the sale section.

Yeah, I have been driving my kids car. Hope he doesn't want to run it over the summer. He has been using my Tekno SCT410 so I guess we are even. This is a superior car to any other AE product that I have owned since my gold pan.
