futureal....

What did you lube the one-way with? There are a couple products out there for one-way bearings but never use a standard bearing lube!!!!!!! The one-way has to lock up so standard lube is not good.

Now to address the breaking problem... you have to run the saver ring (small alum. ring) on the outdrive cup. If you had the ring on not sure how you broke it (man... even I haven't broke one of those yet and I break everything, it's my job of course) ask Mark.

Well thats all I know

Ron,

You left yourself so wide-open after that breaking comment, but I'll hold back this time.

Speaking of that aluminum ring, I lost one ...I had applied a dab of show goe to them ...and to the base of the little spring hoping that would hold them in case the outdrive "ejected" ...but I didn't think about if the front arm got torn out in a violent crash caused by a big mouth racer hacking the ever living snot out of me, that the dogbone would pull out of the outdrive and take the ring with it ....anyone know if just the aluminum ring is available? I see that it's in the outdrive "kit" but $8.00 for the bag seems like a lot when I'm just after the ring!

Ron: Sorry, should have been more specific. Yes the lube was one-way lube, though I don't recall who makes it. Got it at my LHS long, long ago and used it in the one-ways in my Yokomo for over a year.

The aluminum retaining ring was indeed on the outdrive. Unless it came off somehow before the breakage, though I don't think so, it was around the driveshaft afterwards. As far as I can tell it was just a freak accident, I turned into a corner a split second too soon and let the left-front wheel of the car hit the barrier while turned inwards, and the thing broke. All I can figure is that with one-way stopping the wheel so abruptly as it hit the barrier, the torque must have all been applied to the outdrive cup.

Glad I was able to break something that the Losi testers couldn't. I win! haha

Fortunately the outdrives are cheaper to replace.

I remember breaking oneways on a Yokomo that couldnt be repaired due to the oneway bearings pressed-fitted into the oneway assembly. Once the oneway bearing went out, the whole unit needed to be replaced. $50.00 a shot. I think I have a graveyard of 4 of those.

The Losi oneway is nice because it is modular throughout the outdrives, assembly (left and right side bearing hubs).

Yea, I went through a couple of Yokomo one-ways too. The outdrive cups never broke since they were made of some sort of alloy, but yea, the thing was all fancy blue aluminum with the one-way bearings built in. Some people sent them back to Yokomo and occasionally got new ones, but if you weren't lucky it was another $50 out-of-pocket.

Oh no doubt I like their setup, it's "one better" that Schumachers, with shumaccher the outdrive was seperate from the main oneway, but the oneway bearing was in the outdrive so it was $15.00 per pop when you smoked an outdrive ...I just want an aluminum ring

I just shaved down a extra set of out drive savers (aluminum) and attached those to the outdrive cups.

Mark- The graphite Conversion Kit for the XXX-S..... does that include all the rear hubs you can buy and all the Front Carriers that you can buy right now so I will have all the degrees of changes?

Thanks

Mike-

From what I understand the kit will just have all the stock parts-

The tuning parts will still be separate.

Rog-

I think the PN#'s should be in the FAQ??? Click the red link on one of M.Dawson's posts...
