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.......
