Send him a mail, he will ship it.
It can be said I have your same problem, but in reverse. Should I buy an item outside of Europe, but I don't have good communication with those who make them.........

I am thinking about ordering the yeah racing diff set from rcmart. Is this suggested? Thanks for your comments..
I used a one of LOSA3097 (xxx-s composite diff halve) to hold a ring in its place to sand it down.

Ran this car this weekend in Cincy at the big race. It was really good at the beginning weekend but just didn't get much better. As the traction came up my car just got really easy to drive but was just too stuck, attempts to free it up wasn't enough. Had a few problems with traction rolling early but that was fixed by some anti-dive in the front and lowering the body a bit, after those two adjustments it was good. Looking back now I would had done a few settings different between rounds.

I ended up qualifying 6th and finishing near the bottom of the A-final in 8th after blowing a motor in round 4 of qualifying and running a new motor for the main which I didn't get any track time on. The result was a disastrous misjudgment in gearing on my part. Live and learn and race another day.

I would like to thank Tory at Skyrocket for the support.

This might sound odd, but are the inner hinge pins located in the right holes. Front might be in the bottom and the rear in the top. That would make the pins not parallel. It would also throw off the toe to some extent.

Just chiming in. Not sure if it was fixed already.

You are welcome! And you still made the A!!

Thanks
You can get one from us here in the states, or straight from oz, not sure if he's got a eu distributor quite yet. I'm waiting on stock but word on the street was very very soon for a restock.

Default losi ?

I was wondering if anyone had a good setup from last years snowbirds for rubber tire. Also, has anyone had trouble with the flying fox spool and the plastic outdrives breaking and if so is there a solution?

Breaking no, stripping out yes but only in high traction situations. Paul is working on a solution to this issue and i think you all will be very happy with the final product.

For the stripping John (da John Wee on the forums) came up w/ drilling tapping and setting a small grub screw in the outdrives to prevent them from spinning in the spool.

I've got 5 race days on my Type R. Just my front diff feels rough when i spin it by hand. Add a day of grit from racing and it feels gross. I clean it for every race day. I havent touched my rear for a few race days now and it still feels smooth. I do run my front diff a bit tighter than my rear. Should i replace the balls or...

The front diff in my car gets gritty after about a weekend of racing 4 rounds of 6 minutes. I usually don't rebuild until it gets bad because i'm lazy.

Fairtrace and just about every other fast driver yells at me when they feel the diff . I'd say a rebuild after a weekend of racing would get rid of that, also the mcmaster thrust bearing does quite a bit to help your diff stay smoother longer.

The anti-dive really smooths out the steering in high traction, it may take too much away. I just shimmed it .030". I was able to continue running high roll center all around with just this one change.

I had to take the anti-dive back out tonight at the local club race. The home track being smaller and not has much speed it really needed allot more steering.

Run a front spool with rubber tires! That is if you are running rubber tires.
