Here here Tony....

Has anyone noticed a tad bit of a tight fit when you put your diffs in the housing? I was working all weekend on making the drivetrain as free as possible, and found that the diff housing tends to pinch the diff bearings. I got the trusty dremel out and was able to take away some of the pinch, but I was afraid to hack at it too much. I will say this much, by removing the bearing shields, it made a night and day difference. I just wish there was a way to remove all of the pinching cause then the car would roll for ever.

Uhmmmm, seems that AE should revise the diff housing molds. I noticed this on the last two kits I've bought.

It don't need the metal shims that come to the outdrives. As system, on all my kits I remove the inner shielding of some BB's (the diff BB's are the first that I do this 'technique', the next are the inner BB of the front input shaft, it's completely sealed, after that it don't need to have any shielding). Every tad of binding counts.

Corse- Was it the plastic diffs that you noticed this on? It maybe that the plastic expands more than the others???

That was just my thought.

Did I say that about a Digital Servo??? Hmmm...I don't remember that. Maybe I did. I know that the digi-servos can cause some serious glitching which sucks when you spend $100 for one!!!

The Airtronics servos are what I use. 357's and 358's. I know, I know, overkill for a sedan....

Which one. I've driven a car with a KO servo and the thing was wicked. Liked it alot. Never had the same experience with any other servo .

So, what's the thought on Hara going to Schumacher??? Guess the Pro3 was harder to run than he thought....

though you had said digital servos were good. its my understanding that they center really well, any way the guys where I race really seem to love the ko servos but then I am in england where they are made, check out stormer hobbies and look at the ko's cant remember the exact ko model but it was something like that

Oh, it's possible I said that...

They also make a funny sound....but, your competition will KNOW you have a digi-servo...might provide a little mental challenge for them...

sure you havent broken anything, lier.....

and if you think you dont ever have to adjust your diffs after you build them and put them in the car, your slow.

sounds like you dont know enough to even be a racer.....

you probably have a AM radio and reverse to..

ill stop, your not even worth talkn trash to, late barno
I didn't say I haven't broken anything...what I said was I have never broken a suspension arm. Read the post next time.

My car sure is slow...thats why it got clocked at 32.1 mph with a stock motor.

I've been in onroad for one year...and I think im doing pretty good...and I've learn alot too.

My M8 LIMITED EDITION just came in this week. So there will be no need for my AM radio anymore.

Heres a pic of my car with my TC2 speed control with reverse that I got novak to make special...just for me.

Yours truely,

Barno

Really nice track

Nope.... I used plastic diffs on the last 3 TC3 kits I've own, the last 2 come with plastic diffs and in the last two I noticed that I needed to exercise more pressure to install the diffs on their housings and no need to use the shims on the diffs. Strange.... very strange.

And here is a pic of my car and my two trophies I won this year. I only entered two big races and ran the series championship at our local track One is for 5th place at the regionals, and the other is 3rd for the entire season at our local club (about 20 races). Consistency counts.

Although this is probably nothing compared to what you have...I'm proud of them! It is only my first year racing, and there are alot more to come!

Yours truely,

Barno

TP> A .357??? a big weapon for your weapon. Have you checked the 'Dirty Harry special edition'?

I use on my sedans Futaba 9450 servos. Using some behemoths like those (111oz & .09 sec) isn't superficial, it's a need, those little tyres put a lot of stress on the steering.

Hara going to Schumacher? If this confirmed is the fourth car maker that this guy visits since their WC title. If this confirms, could be funny to see that Hara don't have car to run the WC and assisting to the WC as a 'privateer' (because is a real prick, he was very good at Yokomo as a second driver but it wanted to be the 'boss'), a part of my 'dream':

-----------------------8<-------------------------------
Final K Main:
Pos Name Team
...
10 Atsushi Hara Ind.
-----------------------8<-------------------------------

Have you noticed that this guy isn't on my favourite list?
