layshaft ????

Hey there I have tried to post b4 on this thread but never got any answers..I have an Axis 2 and I was wondering if anyone could help me by explaining what a "pinned layshaft" is, (eventhough I have a pretty good idea what it is) I just don't know how to make it pinned or not ..and also what is the pros and cons to doing this...right now I am running on a tight carpet track with medium to high bite with foam tires....any help would be great thanx

When measuring shocks for setup sheets should I be measuring them fully extended so that the spring does not touch either end of the shock or when they are on the car at normal ride height?

Hey Paul,
Could you post the setups used by yourself and Timmy this past weekend? I noticed that Timmy cut out some of his battery slots...why? Also, this past weekend I replaced my my one way outdrives and the first run on them the right one locked itself up and blew the one way bearing out...have you seen that happen before? I couldn't figure out why it did that...I could see it happening if I hit something but the car suddenly pulled to one direction and stopped.

Thanks.

Default On Normal wear and tear

I recently picked up a used kit with mostly normal wear and tear on it.

2 bent hinge pins, a hub that wouldn't hold the bottom ball threads. some worn out bearings, all four upper arm turnbuckles were bent ... stuff you'd expect to see in a used kit.

But I was surprised to see that the layshaft was bent when I tore the car down. If the mesh was set right, then the spur was rotated, the mesh would go from just right to too tight to just right to too loose, etc...

Is this a common thing to go? I mean it seems like that would have to be one heck of a crash to bend the layshaft. Maybe he tried to build it up with the mounts in the 17T position but the 20T pulley on the shaft?

Is this an issue that others have seen?

Anyone know what parts are needed to run the aluminum hubs? High/low ball pins? Is the camber link position the same as the in-line position on the composites?

The Alhubs are sweet, they come with the high ball/ low ball studs, but i would get an extra set. The high ball studs bend easily. The lowball studs are stronger due to their compact design.....

Yes the All hubs are the same as the outer point on the stock hubs......

On the Axis series there was a oneway pulley (u1910) that could be locked with a pin, but the correct layshaft (u1913) is needed to do so. We would recommend a pinned layshaft for foam tire racing.

Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words I will get my setup post ASAP.
