I have to admit I''m thinking about selling my CR for a M05 Pro or trading it for a TT01 and do the 3Racing mini conversion. Or maybe just wait for all the goodies to become more available for the CR.
Wait for the CR hop ups

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

5&10, that's a nice lookin' ride, what year is yours? I owned a '69 in the 80's. Wish I never sold it....

I know exactly what it is .The 2 screws in the back of the diff case .the one on the right side is too long and it is protruding into the diff's inside and the diff's inside is rotating into it.I guess the ring gear is not 100 % true round cuz that is why it hits when rotated around to its high point

You just would have to disassemble diff case and use a blunt tip of a bigger hex head driver or something similar to rubb the high spot down inside the diff case
hope this helps and use a slightly shorter screw

I thought the same thing at first. I did rub that spot down. Still was doing it. It was a bad bearing. Actually I think I must have just got a bit of locktite on the bearing. I already ordered a new one and used the rear diff bearing. Works perfect!!


Thanks for the compliments on my car guys. It is a 72 510 with a rare Rebello 2.3L Frankenstein L20 and twin Mikuni 44's. Coilovers, Roadster racing 5 speed, Nissan Comp header, F&R sways, Urethane bushings, Crane electronic ignition and a electric Carter fuel pump with all stainless and anodized hose and fittings. It is a beast!!!

You know when I look at a 240z I have all these memories from my child hood. So I know that part of my fondness for the car is just my reflecting on those memories. But I never saw a 510 until a few years back and I still think they are the bomb.

Looks like you have room in there for a big turbo.

Ha. My dad has 3 immaculate 240z's.

And yes there is plenty of room for turbo in the dime, but the turbo is going on my other car My 1992 BMW 5 series w. a 98 528 M52 with M3 cams, M3 fly and UUC stage I clutch. Hence my sn five&dime

I grew up around 510's and I just love any car with quad headlights

We are car nuts!!! Here are 2 of his Z's. He has a 70, 71 and 72. He is getting ready to get a 73 with 4k original miles!!!! It's like a time capsule. All original.

His 71 is currently in the paint shop and then we will reassemble her

I hope my new bearing and spline gear come in today. I am ready to finish my CR!!!
