There it is boys and girls, no need to ask anymore. If anyone would know it would be Barry. Although I think it may be too late, for the sake of saying it anyway, listen very closely all, I am not saying or implying that the new material is not better than the old. I KNOW AE would not go through the trouble to test then sell a new product if they did not feel that it was the best product for the racer. Anyone who races with me a Socal knows why (not because of AE). I NEVER said the gears strip easily, nor do I appreciate my words being taken out of context. Anyone who knows me and races with/around me knows I am Pro AE. Please don't misinterpet my posts. What up Barry, see ya this weekend!!!

Barry, do you have to shim the new gears different? If so in what way?

I'm not BB...no you don't have to shim them any differently. Most importantly if you are using the new drive pinion be sure you use the diff cases made for both the electric and nitro car. If you take one of the new drive pinions and look at it just below the gear you will see it is beveled as opposed to the original material gears which aren't beveled. The second generation of the diff case is also beveled to accommodate the afore mentioned.

MabMan.......change the bearings in the diff and the thrust bearing. Try the bearings first.

You should be fine then, as far as the gear matching up with the case.

acloco: I try that. I already checked the thrust bearing, but i over looked the bearings.

Default Ack! Need more on power steering!

Hey guys, I've finally realized that my car needs more on power steering after a few days of racing, I was just paying attention to my line and I figured my car was set-up well, it's set up good, but I think it can be better. I race on carpet with cs-27's on all 4 corners. I have way to much on power push so when I enter the corner I'm fine because I'm usually off power and than when I get on power my car gets way off the pipes so my line is like a foot and a half off the right line. Here's my set up:

Caster - 4
Kick up - 0
Front toe - .5 out
Rear toe - 2 in
anti squat - 2
Camber (front/rear) - -2.5/-2
Ride height (front/rear) - 5mm/5mm
wheel base is adjusted to shortest position
springs (front/rear) - Red/gold
Internal shock limiters (front/rear) - 4/2 (standard set up from manuel)
Front shock on outer most hole
Rear shock mounted on middle hole
all the bottoms of the shocks are mounted in the standard position
Associated 40 weight shock oil all the way around
#2 pistons all the way around
take off tires all the way around
TQ Blue traction compound, 75% on front tires and 100% on rear tires.
differentials used in front and back
tie rod positions (front) - ball stud is mounted on lower/inner hole
tie rod positions (rear) - inner ball stud is mounted on upper/inner hole. the outer ball stud is mounted on the outer hole.

Any ideas that people have to get rid of this on power push would be very helpful. Do you think that moving up one tooth on the pinion gear would help get rid of the push by reducing the acceleration speed? I know that wouldn't be able to get rid of all the push, but does anyone think it might help? Thanks for any help.

The easiest way to gain on power steering is to tighten the rear differential. On my car, i run the rear diff tighter than the front diff, which is contrary to what most people do. It seems to work for me quite well. The red/gold spring combination works pretty well at our local track. I, however, run red all around. I am also a big fan of the longer wheelbase.

i have never run rubbers on carpet, but you can decrease front droop-add internal limiters to front shocks. for carpet i have always run my front diffs pretty locked down with the rear diff medium tightness range. with this set up the front end will pull harder out of the corner.
