I plan on coming back to the left coast for sure sometime this year. My Mom wants to visit with family in Corona so I'm going to go with her. I want to see if there is any races out there that I can try to time it right to make. Know when West coast will re open?
Good to hear Tim!

I'm only 30 minutes from Corona.

Jon Dy, You going to Camarillo?

No Problem:



21 EUR just the body.

2 Months ago they sold hundreds of TT-01 chassis with BMW E30 M3 and Mercedes 190 bodies for just 55 - 85 EUR.

I USED ONLY ONE PIECE OF SHIMMING ON EACH SIDE.

HAVING SAID IM NOW USING A CENTER ONE WAY AND I NOTICE SOMETHING AND I DON'T KNOW IF ITS NORMAL OR NOT. I NOTICED THAT THE PROPELLER JOINT SET REAR GOES UP AND DOWN.

HERE'S A VIDEO ON IT:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFngmwjx-NA


I AM NOW LEFT WITH THE KNUCKLE ARM MOTION TO NOT BEING STIFF FOR BEING STIFF WILL NOT LET THE SHOCKS DO ITS WORK. HAVE YOU GUYS TRIED SANDING THE KNUCKLE ARM OR USING DIFFERENT SHIMMING FOR THE KNUCKLE ARM TO SWING FREELY.

REFERENCE PICTURE IS ATTACHED[/QUOTE
Like I said before, you have to check shimming when you change diffs/parts etc to make sure your tolerances have not changed. Its good that you did when you went to the carbon cases, but did you check things out when you put the center one way in? If you shim the center one way correctly, the up and down you are seeing on the prop joint should go away.
Yes, you can do either. I just sand my hub with a fine fingernail file just enough to free things up
Timmie

I have followed every instruction on the manual about the shimming and still it still have the up and down movement of the joint have anyone here uses the center one way? Maybe shimming it more than the manual tells.

Kindly look at the manual adendum picture below if what I have done is right.
Thanks!

Rico

Rico,

Sorry to jump in this mid way...


Watching your you tube video shows that there is nothing wrong with your shimming. The shaft that the drive shaft cup is on should move. This is where the one way "clutch" bearing resides. Shimming it tight would result in little to no one way movement.

Thanks for the info but am I right? I only placed 4 shimmings (as per manual) after the bearing holder and 1 pc of .1mm shim before the bearing?

So does this mean that the up and down movement of the propeller joint set is only ITS NORMAL REACTION? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFngmwjx-NA

You still shim the center one way like you would the standard propeller joint shaft, checking for excessive free play and adding shims accordingly but the needle bearings themselves cannot be shimmed and up and down movement in this area is normal.

nevermind, Jimmy already said this lol I'm half awake....yeah what he said

Hi all,

A little off the wall here, but was hoping someone could suggest a good site for free music downloads that I could add to some videos I want to post on YouTube of the TB03 in action. I tried to post one there, but was unaware of the copyright infringement they have implemented. Basically, I am looking for some underground, non famous, heavy metal/rock soundtracks that I could use that actually sounds decent The approved music YouTube has available leaves a lot to be desired Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm looking to replace my stock TB-03D Ball studs for my shocks and maybe all my turnbuckles. I'm tired of yanking them off with pliers because it feels like I am going to break something. I think their size is 5x8mm, confirm?

Will these be a good replacement for my shocks? Would the ball studs be the same for both the turnbuckles and the shocks studs?

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXRLD9&P=BR

Those are kinda pricey though, feel free to recommended me some cheaper if you know any. I'm still hunting.
Feel free to recommend.

Hi

Why not just use one of these, if you're having trouble removing your turnbuckles & shocks from the ball studs?

They do so make things easier

The steel ones are good for durability. But I prefer to use thesehttp://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=618&id=6257

and these
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=618&id=6258

I would use the 5X8 for shock mounting positions, and depending on roll centers that you used would determine if you used a 5X5 or 5X8 on other areas of the car.

What about these they are much cheaper. My TB-03D is pretty much stock with a locked rear diff(thanks to tire patches).

http://www.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=4044

http://www.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=4048

4.8mm Fit?

I can't seem to find how long they are.

4.8 x ????

Are they HEX ball studs?
