Default 3racing gear diff

I'm rebuilding my gear diff for the first time ever. I forgot to take note of how it came apart..... Following the instructions it says to put the 1.5mm o ring in the main diff housing over the out drive shaft, but the housing it not recessed. Does the o ring go on, then the 0.3mm shims like that? The shims won't be on the flat surface of the diff housing?? A I missing something?

Default Mini motor fans

Is it required to use a motor fan on an M-05 when using the ORCA Spark system?

My motor stays really cool when I run the fan, I was thinking the ORCA motor isn't reaching a good "warm" temp during the run/race. SO I'm thinking about ditching the fan?

What do you guys think?

Thanks Greg G

Id say ditch it, I'm running the orca system with plastic motor mount and the motor only gets warm after the race.

That's weird. You'd think it would get warm *during* the race.




Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Hey guys ran my first race with the M-05 today, handled great. But need some more straight away speed. I can't find a Tamiya option for gearing(here or any retailers) up beyond the 20T pinion and stock spur. Do they offer a high speed gear set? I see the Ride and TOP parts but I'd like to keep it TCS.

Also does anyone have any experience with a properly broken in and tuned 540 mabauchi vs. a 21.5T brushless set up?

Thanks.

TCS gearing is stock with a pinion no larger than 20t. The speed gears offered, arent all that good. From what I hear, you are lucky to make them last a few races without issues.

Silvercans will get faster as they break in. There are lots of tricks, but thats another thread. lol.

Any experience comparing 21.5T brushless to the silver can. I find a lot of mixed info on different forums. I know the Silver is the only legal way for TCS, but seems like a quick on could possibly out pace a 21.5T anyway

A good silver can will spin faster than a 21.5, on average. The 21.5 will destroy the silver can in the torque department. Add timing or boost and it's a different game again.

I think the TCS rules specify that it has to be a Silvercan and CANNOT be a brushless motor
So if you want to keep it TCS Legal you gotta run a Silvercan
Unless Im wrong???

For TCS yes it must be Silverman. My track allows a 21.5 as a local rule. I ran a 21.5 today and maxed out on timing it still lacked a little grunt compared to some of the silvers
