i'm not luke but I have not had any chatter with the stock spool if that was your question

Default Spool Update

Spools made out of a harder material are on their way!!

They will be in the USA beginning of next week and we will start shipping them out right away! 1 spool out of the harder material and V2 drive cups will be complimentary but you'll have to pay for shipping.

Send an email to topracingusa@yahoo.com Subject: New Spool

In the email include your name, address, and where you purchased it from. Proof of purchase may be required.

I tested the harder material and think it's great. This and the V2 drive cups should be really good.

Also, the aluminum drive cups that uses a blade (what I've been using) will be available in 1 1/2 weeks. This is my favorite combination.

Anyone having spool issues, I urge you to please try the wood screws that EJ suggested, a friend and I both have had zero issues since using this little trick that cost 1.29 for 8 screws.

Use a #5 x 5/8" wood screw, not pretty but effective. NOTE: You have to trim about 1.5-2mm from the end of each screw so they don't hit inside the spool, if they hit you won't get the outdrives tight against the spool. The screws we use are phillips button head screws

Does this go for us UK chaps too ?


As it happens, I contacted MuchMore UK yesterday and they have confirmed that there is an alloy unit, a steel unit, and a titanium spool on the way

I like titanium

Muchmore UK sent the V2 spool parts to all UK model shops that had ordered kits last week so customers should have them by now. Any new kit being issued from last week has the V2 spool parts in there.

If you haven't received yours (and you are in the UK), please call the shop where the kit was purchased or email top@muchmoreracing.com with your name, address and where you bought the kit.

Many thanks,

Keith.

Sorry Keith... I mis-read the original post about the new spools being included.

I already have the newer spool. I read it as the aluminium one being included as standard

My mistake.
Will look out for the metal ones appearing soon




Daniel.

I wasn't able to link to the page as I am a noob.

Yes, there is no pulley included. I think a yokomo bd or a tc5 pulley will fit.
