The best way for me so far:
- Take the big gear and sand it down till 3.57mm, standard is 3.65mm
- sand down the small gear just till they are smooth
- Use 0.1mm shim on both sides on the outside between the outdrive and gearbox
- use 0.3mm shim under the big gear.
This should give a smooth gear with long life!
Looks like I may well have a new TRF V5 by next Wednesday
, my order has just arrived!
I was wondering on how to go about the diff build. I have been reading this forum thread and build guides on petitrc by kentech. Is the V5 diff the same internally as the 417x and if so should i follow your instructions above? If not, what do you recommend for building a strong, reliable and long-lasting diff?
The other question in my mind is regarding the suspension mount setups for the front and rear. The kit comes with separate front and 1 piece rear. I will be starting off running indoor medium-high grip tracks. Will this be okay as I have heard some say to use 1 piece front and separate back for more flex?
Many thanks for any help you can provide on this.
