Psycho: cool, thanks.

Does the Kimbrough gear use different ball bearings than the Tamiya gear? If so what size does the Kimbrough gear use?

I bought a tube of ball diff balls from my lhs for around $5. I don't remember the size, but your lhs should have them. Just tell them you need them for a TC3 or something that they'll know about.

I figured they were the same as the Tamiya ones so I used the Tamiya balls and added in a few of the new ones to fill the remaining holes. The diff had a strange action. There was an area of about 1/4 turn that was much stiffer than the rest of the turn of the diff. I took it apart and replaced all the balls with the new ones I bought and everything was fine. Based on this, I assume that the Tamiya balls are slightly larger or smaller (don't know for sure which.) You'll need more than what Tamiya gives you for the Kimbrough spur, so I'd replace all of them.

The Kimbrough spur uses standard size diff balls. The Tamiya spur uses metric sized diff balls. With regards to the bearing for the Kimbrough spur it is the same one that fits the Tamiya spur.

dcracer: what size are standard balls. I use a lot of cars from over seas, so most of my knowledge is of metric sizes.

So if you can, drop the size of the standard diff balls on me.

Thanks

Darkside the diff balls for the Kimbrough spur gear would be 1/8 inch.

Psycho: Hey, if you see this before mailing off that spur gear to me, then don't send it!

I just found out that one of the further away LHS has all kinds of Tamiya F1 parts on hand. Luckily, that includes the .4 module pinion gears. So I can just pick some of those up until the closer LHS gets the Kimbrough gear in then I'll switch to 48 pitch gears.

Anyone know of a mail-order where i can get the TAMIYA adjustable turnbuckles for the F103?. All the LHS's have trouble getting parts. Also looking for new diff rings and balls also.

You don't really need to get the Tamiya turnbuckles. I use the Lunsford ti turnbuckles on mine w/4-40 balls and cups.

If you go to the Tamiya home page for the F103. it will give you all the part and numbers you need. good luck...

You can check with MDI or E-hobbies.com. I am pretty sure E-Hobbies will have the diff parts you are looking for. I kind of like how E-Hobbies has pictures of everything on the site, it makes it easier to see if you are getting the part you need in the package.

Wink servo mount

Does anyone know which parts set includes the servo mount? I can't seem to tell from the pictures on the E-Hobbies web site. I was thinking of making one, but I am just too lazy (And I want to be TCS legal) ;

Thanks,
Jody
