Same here, been using the TOP balls and ends from the start with no problems. Still 'feels' sturdy and tight.

If anyone has a set of d2 dampers, not d2.1, I'd be OK with just the vanes and top caps, please give me a shout.

Just to be clear, you're talking about the version that uses the smaller OR15, correct? If so I believe I have a set of these (vanes and caps). I'll make sure when I get home from work tonight.

I have been running UB-1's on my 17.5 car and seem to be chewing up the bearings at an alarming rate. Is there anyway/anywhere i can buy a couple bearing sets? im to the point that ive used up 2 full sets of bearings and have a bunch of pins in my parts box and have had to start running the bushings again.

Bearing don't wear. That is their point.

Something else -- spool/diff drive cup and or bent axle are causing this issue.

The main amtx site should have these small bearings for sale..

Perfect thank you very much, and that is exactly what my thought process was with trying them, I will have to take a closer look at my car when i get home. I am thinking a new set of ST-37's will be a good place to start.

Does anyone have a good way of removing the ST07 outdrives from the AT23/AT24 diff case halves? As near as I can tell from the manual, the outdrives are only held in by an O-ring; there are no pins or C-clips to remove. If that is correct, then these O-rings must be made from some super-secret-high-strength rubber. I have tried pulling on the outdrives, and even tapping them from the opposite side with a pin and hammer, but they refuse to budge. What am I missing?

If you diff has orings on the outdrives then you have st23/26 and not st07. The oring is hiding a pin02

I did apply AE green slime on all orings, not good enough???

Frankly, no question about my building skill.
I have tried many times to build the damper & gear diff, but they still leak.

DOW55 is simply just better.
The A800 is also now using a P45 down the center of the new D2.1 dampers. People seem to be happy w/ them...

Well I have rebuilt my car and settled on a new starting set up and would appreciate a bit of feedback. It is a large outdoor flowing track with a tight chicane area, so I find for my driving style the longer the wheelbase the better. I am running 21.5 Blinky and track is usually low - medium traction.

Laptimes for 21.5 are around 20 seconds a lap.

Outdoors you should run a ltc-r. Can u fill the sheet in electronically so we can see the spring rate right?

Also, im shocked to see front end caster loss. We've only run that at huge tracks with mod motors.
