On a certain track layout, the 20 would be faster.

Ive just installed the Schumacher RW pulleys and they are really nice. Slightly smaller and definetly lighter. Certainly no high spot if I ever did have one!

This car has no drivetrain friction whatsoever. So much for Losi. Phffttt!

Anyone know the retail on the RW pulleys in the US...... I saw the RW spurs and they are sweet!!!!, so I must have the pulleys....


BTW: it is possible to get your Mission diffs totally smooth, but it takes alot of work!!! Her's the extra steps to make sure your diffs are extra smooth.....

1) Schumachers carbide diff balls are great, don't replace them unless you have to.

2) sand your diff rings with 400-600 grit sand paper by laying the paper on a smooth, flay, clean surface, place the rings on the paper, use the female outdrive as a "handle", and sand in a figure 8 until the surface is perfectly smooth. repeat on both sides of all diff rings.

3)remove the thrust bearing, clean and relude using alot of Team Losi thrust bearing lube.

4)remove all diff lube from the pulleys, they must be perfectly clean of all lubricants, greases

5)place a small amout of Losi Diff lube between you thumb and first finger, place the diff ball between those fingers ansd roll the ball around to apply lube to the ball, next place the ball in the pulley, DO NOT apply any more diff lube to the balls, diff rings, anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6)tighten the diff just to the point where the pulley will not slip when the outdrives are heald tight.

7)install the diffs, and break them in by holfding one tire at a time while applying throttle, repeat on all 4 tires.

8)remove the diffs ad readjust as specified in no.6........


I rebuilt my diffs this weekend and they are silky smooth.......

Well what inspired me is my second set of diffs finally went to the point they needed rebuilding, so on Saturday i sat down and 3 hours, 6 cigarettes, and 4 blisters later my dffas where so smooth a freind of mine who used to race with Adam Drake and Josh Cyrul commented they where the smoothest he had ever felt!!!!!! Next to Joshes of coarse!!!LOL Then I told him I learned how to properly rebuild diffs from a article Josh had written!!!!!!!!

IMPACTPLAYR: Thats sweet, sweet news to know that it is possible to get the Schumacher diffs as smooth as other companies' diffs. I'll try to rebuild mine today and see if I can get mine that smooth. Steps 2, 5 and 7 are different from what I've become used to doing, so I'm hoping that those will be the difference makers.

Oasis2001: how much do those RW pulleys go for. I'm totally hooked on their spur gears so I know I would be happy with the pulleys.

Impact- Are you using the Warpspeed chassis, and the motor to the left? This chassis balances better then the stock chassis. I like the 3 mm myself. Very stiff and no ill handling characteristics on lower traction surfaces.

My diffs are smooth since I have been rebuilding the way you explained for about 3 months now.
