I think I have come up with at least a temporary out drive saver for the spools. If you cut the outer race of a diff bearing apart and just slide the inner race of the bearing onto the out drive after the driveshaft/blade has been inserted to the outdrive slot. then a dab of CA to retain it since it is on the end of the outdrive. I ran it this last sunday and they pretty much stayed put. Didn't have any heavy crashes though. I want to try it on the inner part of the out drive up against the bearing. Will make servicing the car easier.

The way that Adrian had us make our spools seems to be pretty good. They have held up in some very bad crashes without any signs of damage. What type of problems are you guys having with the spools?

they been breaking apart in a hard crash and\or spreading apart. it only happens on the right side female out drive. my spools are built to the same specs as Adrian and team does them. these savers at least keep them from spreading apart. more testing in up coming weeks. i have broken about 15 or so in the last 2 or 3 years. been more lately because that is about all i run in the MI2 now

Yeah i stopped running spools myslef. I honestly saw no benefit on the tracks i run on. our tracks are very tight and for the most part short. I thought driving with a spool was easier but not always faster. From what I understand is you guys all run bigger tracks than we do here in lil ole NJ.

I drastically reduce my out drive breakage when I started loosening up my spools 1/4 turn. They will never slip from just running but id you smack a pipe it will slip and save the out drive. Just make sure you stay on top of replacing the blades if you crash.

I have done the 1/4 turn deal and even a little looser with out any problems the one thing I suggest guys is have a stash of blades because when those go bad the pin starts chewing at the out drive.

Default New Part

U2797 Ultra Light One Piece Alloy Spool - $39.99 - CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and hard anodized. The units comes with a CNC machined pulley and the whole thing weights just 6g. Since there is no need for a pocket for the thrust bearing the spool's out drives have been internally beefed up.
