I have used my Thunderpower 5300 65C's in it and fit perfectly.

From the looks of the picture that is the pulley tensioner, not the front puley holder. Please let me know if we are talking about the same part please.

check part #3454516
Tamiya TRF416 belt stabalizer mount. Aluminum... Im checking to see if its cross-compatible.

How much fluid is everyone putting inside the diffs? I've read about half the internal volume, I've read plum full, I've read to just wet the gears,...ect. I am finally getting around to building and was curious where I should start. I am planning on doing half the internal volume and seeing where it goes. I hate splashing around in that stuff any more then I have to.

sorry, I was referring to the part that holds the two pulleys to the front of the chassis. (circled in yellow)

As for having too much flex, I was referring to the flex towards pitching, which loosens the belt under braking. This comes from mainly 2 areas. The first area is the front where the chassis stiffeners attaches to the wall of the battery compartment (circled in red). The wall is soft so is caves in pretty easily. The second is the area where the 4 screws meet the motor brace on top the battery box (green area). This also caves in. Try it with your hands and you'll see just how much the belt comes loose. The trick is to fill the battery compartment so that the walls cannot cave in so easily. You are essentially using the battery case as an internal brace. Foam alone is not strong enough fyi.
You won't lose any twist flex because the chassis is so soft to begin with. But pitch flex is not good for the belt and weight transfer.

btw, I switched to outboard shocks, and the weight difference was negligible. Also, a 30x30mm fan fits perfectly on top of that motor brace. If you use all four screw holes, it even acts as a stiffener.

General rule of thumb is to fill it to the top of the cross shafts. if you overfill it, you get leaks from too much pressure.

Im waiting on mine to come to me in the mail(got it from rcmart on ebay for $400 with both front and rear diffs-SHIPPED!)


inpuressa; the Pro kit comes with the normal plastic battery box right? what about the graphite battery box?

Tamiya is known for releasing the carbon reinforced chassis pretty late. I think they are releasing the FF03 this month, and that car was out for sometime already. The other parts tree, we should see in a couple months. Parts tree A will be the most crucial.

I don't like the current tamiya ball diffs because the diff rings don't have the D-cuts. You need to maintain it often to make sure it doesn't start slipping. Another advantage to the gear diff is how the outdrive bearing is mounted. On the ball diff, the bearing is mounted on the outdrives. If one of the bearing seizes, your diff action will suffer on that side, giving you weird handling (personal experience). On the gear diff, your differential system is independent from the bearings, so you don't have that.

Ive been running ball diffs for over 15 years and never had the issue youre referring to....

This evening my TA06 PRO was delivered and i inmediately started the building proces.
So far the car is coming along nicely, but i was also surprised about the chassis flex (very much flex).
Maybe that's an advantage on low grip circuits.
I will finish the car tomorrow, hopefully i will get the electronics in so i can test it on sunday

Questions?? diffs

Has anybody tried to run the rear gear diff with the spool up front? How will the car react?

I really like this mod, he just switched everything from L to R
but i think it does not compensate all the weight... you still need some ballancing weight.

Today i was able to test te car and i was surprised by the handling.
The car had lots of grip on a low grip track.
I really like how the car is build up, it shouldn't be that difficult to get the perfect balans (front to rear and left to right side).
I will be testing some more to get the best results out of this car.
