Default Spec R geared diff in photon

Hi,

Im having issues with my spec r geared diff in the photon i build it up as instruction says and the geared diff doesnt last only lasted about 4 laps.

Are you suppose to slightly sand the gears first?

Any best practice and help would be great.

4 laps? What broke? What motor where u running? I've seen the diffs gears strip if it is too tight or too loose. Sanding the backside of the big gears silghtly should be done. Honestly there was nothing wrong with these diffs (that could of changed). I'd recommend u post up on the spec-r thread. Or just buy a Yokomo gear diff and call it a day. They just slap together with no leaking...

Ah. I've seen that before. Try sourcing pins from somewhere else.

Here is kind of a cool pic of my car coming out a banked sweeper at Time Zone Raceway on Sunday. Looks like I have a little to much up travel LOL. Such a great Track!

Do you have 2 #54 or 2 1.3mm holes drilled in your shock tops? If not do that and try again.

Just to follow up on The Goat's comments -- we haven't had much luck building shocks with zero rebound immediately after building them. The best method is to
1- put two holes in your shock cap
2- with the piston fully extended apply the bladder
3- work out any excess oil when seating the bladder. I use a 3mm wrench for this
4- screw on the drilled shock top

On the bench the new show will show 50% rebound. Run the shock in the car for a pack or two. If u take the shock out now you will see near zero rebound

Previously when build new shocks with zero rebound we would get a
Litttle air in the shock -- just enough to piss u off to want to rebuild shocks weakly. Now using the EJ "full extension" method you can easily go two - three (or more if you are lazy) and still have great working shocks ...
