Yeah, kinda what I was thinking. Not as shiny, but I'm not breaking anything either.

Had some handling issues tonight with the R, and traced it down to the FF Spool... Same problem as John experienced. Switched back to the Losi Spool, and everything was good again! Didn't have any problems racing the FF spool on carpet, but after last weekend's outing on asphalt, the outdrives got chopped out pretty bad... :O

Popped a stock one at the diamond last weekend. Sounded like a capacitor on the speedo popping ahha.

I like my FF spool I've been running it on various asphalt surfaces w/o issue in stock and mod.

But to each their own which is why more than one car exists and more than one option part company exist.

Until one pops on you or loosens up when you are second in the A main! I'd prefer to strip cups thanks .

I've broken enough of these dam things that I have 40$ worth of diff nut halves in my box and had just taken to the habit of changing them whether they needed it or not because they would break at the wrong time when i was (finally) in a good position on the grid.

To me .... and again MY opinion. I'd prefer to finish high up and change a cup than not finish and have to change parts anyway.

If someone were to reproduce or make readily available in the US, all the stock spool needs to be bulletproof would be an alum outdrive with a threaded nut in it. The stock plastic one will and does strip and snap the threads. The FF spool is lighter and that's never a bad thing, but it obviously takes the "fuse" out of the equation.

no I dont like that alum out drive idea, then it will crave after few runs, then we need pillow and stuff same old story, I just wanted to see some one can make mini 4-40 lock nut in to the halves like the one for B4 or xxx-s, so I can adjust how much slip my car should be. but again FF is lighter.

This sounds interesting. I can't picture it though.

There was a nut in the out drive on the diffs for the old car. http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/JRXS-pricelist.pdf Page 4 shows the exploded view of the diff on that car and you can see the nut. That may help some of you that are stripping out the plastic out drive. I personally have not replaced one yet, so has not been an issue for me at all. If they made it like that in the old car they could make it again for this car, but I doubt Horizon would tool up for it.

New to the car and this thread, and was curious why some are changing the front gear to a 42t? Also does BMI still make chassis's for the car, and what was the advantages over the factory chassis?

Thanks

I think the 42 is the box stock setup, and if you want "over drive" where the front pulls the car through the turn you would use the 41t front pulley.

BMI never made chassis for the public for the Type-R, they are special one offs for some of the team drivers for Losi that dribe for T.O.P. now. Schreff, Scooby, Goetter and handful of others i think had these one off chassis. I've seen one up close and BMI does some phenominal carbon work, dunno why they switched you'd have to ask one of them to tell you why the BMI chassis was better.

like it was said above the 41t is the overdrive pully and the 42 is stock. I experimented pretty heavily with my original "s". I ran it in the rear most of the time since it was the only thing I found to fix the balance problem with the center motor car and on-power oversteer. What it does is changes the final drive ratio, slowing down that axle. Having it in the rear will drive the car more like a FWD car, pulling it through and out of corners because the front (42t pully) is spinning slightly faster. having it in the front acts more like a RWD car giving more oversteer.

I havn't seen a need yet to use it in the "R" its pretty balanced already. camber links, alignment, shocks, tires should be tried first.

1 Reason may be during the season last year there was a batch of pullies that were shipped as 42T and were actually 41T,since packing has been fixed.

Some may just be converting back. Like Cory said 41T in front will really help car drive hard on power thru the entire corner. I know I have been running the 41T on front spool for 2 years now and Schreff and Larry also have with great results while they ran there Type-R's.

Would it be recommended on a tight indoor carpet track?
