Are any of you guys doing anything to save the diff outdrives in your cars? i think i have two weeks into my outdrives and they are already starting to make a dent into the outdrive where play is noticeable.

No doubt a week point in the TC5 design. They need to be hard coated like ones that last more then a month or 2. I've been just letting mine get sloppy and change a couple times per year, I have yet to come up with a way to make them last. The plastic ones will actually outlast the alum ones for stock, I'm considering going back to them.

I use the plastic in the rear of my TC5 and they are holding up very well.

Default Outdrives

Do you guys think it's a good idea to use titanium outdrives that don't use blades? one of our local hobby shop have it here in san diego they said it came from england. He didn't mention what company it was but he said it was heat treated to eliminate the britlleness of titanium.

Are you guys getting that much slop on the alum diff halfs when using the plastic blades? I ran about 15 packs thru my car and the guy who had it before me ran at least 3 weeks on racing 13.5 and my plastic blades still fit very well.

I think your talking about the T.I.R. spool its titanium with delrin outdrives. I used and thought it worked pretty well. Don't forget to order some extra delrin outdrives. I used the aluminum outdrives and filed the edges flat to give the blade more surface contact area it should help to prolong outdrives and make it harder to break the plastic blade in an event of a crash. Just be careful not to file off to much to keep them tight.

Put your thumb on the rear pulley, and rotate a rear tire each direction...look for play back and forth. That play will come from either the cvd pin connection or the blade / outdrive slop.

Quick, give me tomorrow nights winning Mega Million numbers. Super fast shipping from these guys, and from what I can tell the machining looks great. Not gonna open anything until I get the new bulkheads from England. Can't wait.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I do have some slop at the CVD pin area. I had this happen on alot of my touring cars that used alum drive shafts. THe ones I had that where steel I didn't have a problem. I think some of the problem is just the nature of the best when using aluminum cvds to lighten things up.
