I'm getting a 416. What else do I need to get? I want to run a spool.

Hi,

the MRE Spool will be similarly priced (here in germany) as the one from jaad.

Tamiya should now show the 44mm MIP-CVD Driveshafts (available from Steel, Titanium and Aluminum). I am not really happy with the 42/46mm swing shafts.

A new black spring set would be also very interesting. On the Tamiya Fair in November I can remember there was something like this shown.

Square will release in a few days the hard anodized blue aluminum c-hubs with 4° of caster.

As diff covers I use the following solution: Take a decal sheet (I love the LRP ones *gg*) - take a ("Schneidzirkel") ... something like cutting compass - ready! For those who are too lazy: Tamiya #53980

Ed just get the Ta05 outdrives for your spool as the only thing I have broken in 5 cell mod is th spool outdrives in 2 years of racing mod with the the 415. Running the plastic ones at the last carpet wars caused me 4 DNFs just through clipping the bot dots

Cheers Mark,
I'm really looking forward to it, shoudl be a lot of fun. Good thing I know just to drive within the limits of the car to begin with, get round without mistakes, and I'll probably end up with a decent time
I'm only going to be using a 4.5.... a 3.5 will be a waste imo, as I won't be able to make most use of all the power... and having said that, a number of A finalists are using 4.5's as well... too much power can be a bad thing
I've invested in some new cells too (IB46), so runtime won't be an issue... I hope

I don't know why, but I think I'm going to feel bored at the next round in stock... it's too slooooooooooooooooow

If your there on the 17th come say Hi, I'll be easy to spot, pretty much all blue pit area (I know, I'm a blue biatch )

Regards
Ed

Hi Ed
What make of motors will you be using I use GM. It really depends on the layout at carpet wars. If it is one of the flowing layouts a 3.5 will be fine however that said the last one I was at I think that it would have been difficult getting a stock round due to how tight it was.
See you There
Mark

I run the JP Spool on my 415 for months and months with no significant wear, and the TRF416 versíon is even better. To say the cups are too soft is just BS.

This is one of the best quality RC products I have seen in my 18 years in this hobby, and ask anyone who has seen it and they will say something similar...

Then take out the big pinion gear and install the correct-teeth gear.
Alright ... I figured out why I keep loosing teeth on my Spur. I run LRP 3.5 brushless and according to manual, I try to set a gear ratio of 10.5+ (my local track is fairly small) so with a 105T Spur, I used a 21T pinion, and I finally realized that because the pinion is so small, I could not get a close enough mesh because I have already pushed the mesh as far as I could and the motor mount just wouldn't let me get closer!

Oh well, I am now off to the stores to pick up a 120T to see if that will help. I also talked to some guys at the track and they suggested that one way to set mesh is to hold the pinion steady, rotate the spur, and the spur should move just very little. Too much will mean it's too loose.

So much for my weekend run ... sob.
