  • Quote: Hey all,

    I was absentmindedly building a brand new diff while watching TV. Built it right but then tightened it too much; it went "click." I loosened it and turned it, and it just clicks like a bike one-way. Then I took it apart, checked all the parts (they look fine; the thrust rolls fine it seems) regreased everything and put it back together. Now it has crunchy spots evenly around its rotation. Do you know what part is causing this trouble?

    Thanks.
    try checking the diff pulley (black thing in the center of the diff) see if you cracked it where any of the balls go in if not rip it all apart and start over and see if you get different results

    if your using the stock thrust bearing you damaged the cage. You may have also stripped the threads in the outdrive, they make a snapping noise when the break, but still feel like they thread, it's odd.
  • Quote: I'm interested.... I've got all my pullies lathed down already, so as long as the layshaft takes standard drive pullies it will be good. Have you got a contact?

    You will hear more very soon. Still testing the prototype at the moment.

    The new layshaft/spur adaptor will be one piece made from 7075 so nice and light. It will have a solid 5mm shaft (using 5x8 bearings) so no more stripped spurs caused by the flexing of standard shaft and able to fit standard spurs. The spur also runs absolutely true and allows a more precise mesh to your pinion.

    More soon.

  • Check to make sure you got the correct spring in the diff. My second kit came with the wrong size diff spring (The one from the xxx-cr.) The xxx-cr one is black in color and longer than the silver short one required. If the thrust bearing is visible through the tube on the outside, then this is a dead giveaway.
  • Yeah, the springs are right. Whoever said it was the thrust bearing was correct; I tried the thrust bearing from the smooth diff and it works fine. I'll just buy another thrust bearing.
  • I need a little help with my set up
    The car has a push in the high-speed turns and in the entrance of the turns but it turns good mid to exit.
    Also the rear wants to come lose on the exit or a turn

    How big of a deal is it to have a washer under the ball stud on the spindle and what does it do for handling wise?

    http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/31890

    my pack is

    Length: 136mm (5.3")
    Width: 47mm (1.85")
    Height: 22mm (0.87")

    and the orion 5000 is

    Length: 137.5mm
    Width: 47mm
    Height: 23mm

    so that means it should fit with no mods
    Yeah that is the one I am talking about that fits with no modifications. The old Orion 3200 fits but the old Orion 3600 doesn't fit because it is too wide and hits the belts.
  • I have not posted this in the FS thread yet. I thought I would offer it here first. I am going to sell one of my Type R's. It has been raced on ashpalt so it shows typical wear on the rear of the chassis. I will sell either my foam car of my rubber car. Rubber has one way and spools. Car will come with a lipo tray and a bunch of parts. All NIP. I also have a TrakPower 4900 that I can include in it. The pack is fairly new since I don't race much. The pack has been modified to fit in the car. All in all, will sell for $250 as roller and parts. Alot of parts. (arms, knuckles, springs, diff parts, spools) Or $300 with Lipo. And will take offers on trades. And or reasonable offers on car. I am going to post this in the FS thread in a couple of days. I can take pict and send them to you if you PM me an email.

    well you should add the 3800 to the list then because my pack is smaller than the 5000

    I was going to post who to chat to and then this sowed up!

    This will be a must have when it is finished. Clearence for lipos and a standard spur adaptor all in one! Plus you get a layshaft less than 1/2 the weight of the stock one which will improve punch for spec classes like 17.5. Just a case of getting the size perfect so no lipo pulley problem but you don't hit the upperdeck supports either with kit pulleys.

    I want one! Actually 2! Are these for real? Can I prepay? When will they be ready?
  • I would probably order one also.
  • Anyone know if this battery fits in with no mods? according to the dimensions it looks like it should fit perfectly.

    Trakpower 4900mah 2 cell 7.4v 25c
    Dimensions: 137mm long
    46mm wide
    23mm high

    Definitely for real. Around 2 weeks from the first production run. We really want to be sure they are spot on before they are released. This is the first part we will release to the public and our reputation will ride on its quality.

    Thanks for your interest. Just keep in touch with this thread and you'll be up to date.
