Default update

i just wanted to give an update on the Pro 4 arms...
I put on the High Traction Pro4 Arms...
and wow...the car had so much more steering..it was great.
and to top it off...
the arms so much more durable...
finally a weekend without breaking one single thing.

I recommend to everyone to put the arms on the car.
The lower shock mounting holes line perfectly to shock position 2 & 4 on the current arms.

Today I tested the Spec R gear diff for TCX. The outdrives are different in design than their previous models for other cars. It has 2 grooves and the diameter is the same for the shaft. The X ring also seated perfectly tight in the housing. So after some sanding of the bevel gears (as per instruction) I assemble it and use 1000 silicone oil.

After running it for 4 packs, there was no leak at all. The new design outdrives with the grooves really worked. I just hope it stays like this, I m going to test it again tomorrow. Overall I m really satisfied with it.

I have the gear diff, but I have a question for others out there with it. Do the drive shafts need any type of blades put on them now? Seems to be some slop in the stock cvd's in the rear.

3Racing Blade work very well and are inexpensive.

Yeah i noticed them, but they are non exsistant here, demon power products used to do them, but not anymore, not going to purchase overseas for just blades. The HB ones shouldn't be anywhere near the price they are. The price of HB parts in the UK is generally a ripoff anyway, cheers though.

PS I am not a HB representative but I will do my best to help you if I see you at my local track.
The steel shafts that you are talking about was in HARA's titc TCX ,that means it might be out very soon...

Have not heard anyone on the TCX forum comment on them.. must be better then the aluminum ones..
Hi Guys
I ran the steel CVD's at our Friday night club which is aprox 22mtrs x 12mtrs and about a 8 second lap time with NO probs what so ever. I also ran them again yesterday at the last round of EWS which I was 3rd in the A and finished 3rd overal, but won the EWS series overal Track size 34mtrs x 16mtrs with a 10.80 second lap

I feel peeps need educating when fitting/running these awesome driveshafts.

1,
Make sure when building them make sure the C, clip is completely seated in the groove within the axel. I not, you may find it benificial to remove a little material from one end of the C clip so that the clip fits in and the ends of the clip meets flush.

2,
Make sure that once together that they are completlt free of any knotching.

3,
Make sure you place the spring is seated well in the outdrives (personally they work the best with the LM spool) and that the shaft is under tension within the outdrives.

4,
Make sure there is no movement/float left and right of diff/spool, as this will put extra load on a separate CVS.

5,
Check the servo saver don't have excesive movement within it.

6,
You won't need as much ackerman when running CVS's iv'e found.

7,
you might want to check the max lock out on your steering too, as if there is any movement it would be advisable to put a small 0 ring on the steering knuckle so stop the knuckle from flexing round in a crash, which is when problems mat arise.

8,
You will also find that you can reduce the steering curve on your handset, as will find corner speed is far smoother so therefor quick than standard CVA's

9,
The other thing you will find is, that tyre wear is far less than with CVA's as there is NO chatter from the CVS's at all.

10,
You may think that you u need CVS's n the rear of the car, but you would be wrong, again these work well in cojunction with the front CVS's as again tyre wear is far less than the standard version, as there is no judder, so again less wear.

Well I hope this has helped you make up your minds about the CVS's. I know there been issues, as i have been working closely with Litemodz on these drive shafts

If I can help in any 'technical' questions I can help with please ask.

Cheers Malc

Has anyone put the Spec-R gear diff in the front yet? Did you need a longer belt?
