Yeah if you're going to run it on the road, I'd put tape over the chassis holes

Questions??

What would be better:

The front one way unit
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53833

or

Front Direct coupling (spool)
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=865&id=5802

Also, if I purchase either of these, will I be able to just install them or will I need to make adjustments or purchase something else to make them work right?

I'll be running on a medium sized carpet track if that helps..

Thanks

Zac, they are both a user preference thing. But generally speaking, base on feedback from other racers and my own experience. A one way set-up is harder to drive overall mainly because you are driving without brakes since your car will spin out when brakes are applied. Spool is very close to running ball diff but will handle more aggressively but in return can put more stress on your drivetrain. Even most pro drivers stay away from one way because of its nature but again if you are good with throttle control and hardly uses brakes, one way might work for you. If you are just starting out, I would suggest to stick with ball diff setup then maybe jump to spool when you believe it can be an advantage at a certain point.

As far as compatibility...yes they will all work. except V2 uses a larger pulley. TA05 original has smaller pulley.

So for the spool, I would need to use the pulley that came in the kit? All my bearings flew out of the front diff so I'm just thinking if I should pay around $30 for one set of 3mm balls, or just upgrade now..

I'd agree - with only one diff in the rear the 2 wheel braking distance is roughly doubled. Some people like that kind of setup. I like as much brake as I can get out of it as it is in the first place ieeeee!

Tamiya sells the spool kit with a pulley, and the part number for that pulley should be listed in it b/c it's sold as a single spare as well, somewhere in their replacement parts catalog. I don't have the numbers but I saw em both.

or would these 3mm metric gage balls work or do they have to be special type ball? These are off Amazon.com

Thanks, I'll start looking for that now. Couldn't find the spool under TA05v.2, guessing it's probably just under TA05.

Edit: Found the spool +c pully the manual says it needs:

spool
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53877
37t one way pulley
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54023

Thanks!

Wow nice find - I would buy those and try em out for parking lot bashing. I don't know why they're that cheap so I'd just experiment and hope they don't crack or chip. But that would fit great!

You will need to get the 37t one way pulley (can be use for spool also). You cant use the one from the ball diff because the center hole diameter is smaller.
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54023

Are you referring to the small diff balls? Just replace the tiny balls, I think you can get the ceramic type (stronger) for about $20. Probably cheaper at your local hobby store. Or even the regular ones for less.

You guys are writing too fast.

The pulleys that come with the spool is still a 36 Im almost sure.

Another suggestion is setup the front ball diff tighter than the rears. not sure why though.

yep yep Can't drive with a 2.25:1 in the front and 2.055:1 in the rear. Everything from the center pulley driving the front, the belt, and the rest of the drivetrain minus the bearings would also wear quicker b/c the front will turn faster and "pull" the car. Kills the steering
