Does I am currently running NiMh batteries(LiPo's on order) i presume that will not effect the top speed?
Batteries can make a huge difference.

Even tho the Blackcan is a "sealed" motor, there are ways to clean and polish the comm. Please go to the Silvercan thread on this forum and do a bit of research. A clean comm can make as much as a 2,000 rpm difference. Several people have posted how to do this.

Blitz Volvo C30 body, sat on my M03. It sits a bit strange on the rear as I need to lower the rear body mounts (lowest hole combined with 7mm rear ride height is too high), but otherwise, it goes straight on.

Does anyone know if there are hardened outdrive cups for the stock new style (2 flat sides not the splines) gear diff?

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, and the picture isn't distorted. That's exactly what the Ofna JL12E looks like as you pull it out of the box.



Luckily the chassis underneath makes up for the shocker up on top.

Thanks for the review, was always a bit curious about that car but couldn't really find much info about it.

The diff is garbage on that Active Hobby's remake.

Dan if you want to see the car let me know.

I guess there are no hardened outdrive cups for the stock m05/m06 gear diff.

It's not a 'remake' as such. It's a 100% Active Hobby car, just in a different box...

As for the diffs, well the first A210's were pretty poor, but since then we've seen quite a few go for a long time with no problem, and certainly we had no trouble with car in testing.

Oh, hardened outdrives? Not that we know of....

Take the diff apart and look at the holes in the diff gear. There are ridges around the holes that stick out further that the diff balls. The diff rings rubs/rides on these ridges so you can't properly tightened the diff....unless it's a new diff gear and they fixed this problem......

Messed with one for awhile. More like trying to get the diffs right. Mr. All Speed has it now. Everything else on the car is ok, plastic. There was an SS version that has hopups on it. Tony Gray or Tim K has one and reviewed it awhile back.

I think they must have heard your cries of anguish.

Our car has a spool up front and the rear diff is pretty much perfect.

We redid a few of the things in the car but didn't feel the need to even touch the diff.

I hope so but don't be fooled by the smooth feel of the rings riding on plastic. Hold the outdrives still and try to turn the gear. If it slips and you tighten the diff and it continues to slip........

The car I was setting up originally had a spool up front too which was turned into a diff. That's how I found out about the problem.

For the price I guess it's ok.
