Referring to your previous replies ... it seems that the .28 shock shafts are used only on the front !

What is the best shock shaft for rear ? (0.36) ?

senna, stay with .36 for the rear, .28 is too short

ijnek, I've run both over and underdriven set-ups. Overdrive pulls the front wheels round the corner under power and gives more steering on power but less off power. I also found that it kept the rear in line and stopped it from breaking loose, it just followed the front round the corner

I sacrificed some old Pro-10 rear tires to stop the battery pack from falling out of my car, it happened twice in one race!

TSR6- For oneway maintenance, I just run the crap out of it and then buy a new one at the begining of the next season. It may be sad to say but when I have tried to clean and relube oneways they have allways felt poor after, so I just spend the money.

Default Spring Rates

Hi Guys

Thank you for the replies. Yes I noticed most people use different springs than Losi, especially Trinity.

Thank you again for your help

I lube my one-ways with HPI ceramic grease. It's a silver color and comes in a small blue jar thingy that's about the size of a bottle cap. I just scrape out a small amount with an x-acto blade and put it on a couple of the rollers in the bearing and it works like a champ.

Thanks for the replies.. I just know my oneway is not as smooth, and free rolling as before.

I'll spray it out, and use some Team1 fluid on it..

1.83, assuming you mean internal. Final depends on too many variables for me to answer that for you.
