i'm running 17.5Bl with a Ta03 ball diff,any help would be great

The probability is that one of your outdrives has popped out of the diff on one side. Do you have the 'o' rings in the outdrives? Or is one of them badly worn?
This is the main purpose of those 'o' rings, to keep the outdrives properly seated. It's also possible that if there is looseness there that the splines have now started to strip.

Malls may be a great venue for a race. With the economy slumping malls are looking for events that will bring in a crowd. Great job!

Even when you have universals?

Do you still put them ?

No suspension binds?


Thanks

The O rings have a double role. One is as explained above, to keep in the dogbones if used. The second role is to keep in the diff outdrives if the older TA03/Manta ray version is used, as these outdrives are not held inside by anything. If you use the balldiff and universals there's no need for the rings. Otherwise you need them.

Default M05 Traction

Been running my M05 this morning fine top speed but slow off the line and through the infield and as we are running standard motors it difficult to catch back up again. running S grips all round will full additive and ca on the front walls. Guess my problem is purely one of lack of traction from rest / low speed. Using tamiya alloy shocks and white kit springs. Any suggestions?

maybe i should call scooby doo coz its a real mystery

cheers for your help

But it's not a very updated or complete list is it? I mean I think I have heard of some other manufacturers like Carson and Kamtec that also make bodies that wil work on a M or L size M-chassis.

Anyone know of any?

Thanks,

Hey Bosscat,

are you running the standard kit diff (gear diff) a ball diff or a Spool Diff?

If your running a ball diff how tight is it?

I recently built my M05 - need some troubleshooting help.

On throttle the car drives straight, off throttle the car moves left. I am running a new Tamiya ball diff and CVD's no "o" rings or foams in the cups. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Suspension and steering are free (has new Tamiya aluminum steering ). This one has me baffled.
