The yokomo gear diff looks like a quality piece but, it does leak fluid according to the team drivers. It seems that all gear diffs leak, some.

Almost all gear diff leak

My rrr doesn't leak, it use o-ring from silicon, but in spec-r is some "plastics".

Maybe it should be normal o-ring in spec-r/Y

Anyway, Y diff is 10$ more, but spares are crazy overpriced then spec-r ...
and it sucks ..

Regards!

Default Assembly question

Hi all, what a great forum.I have a question i hope someone can help me with regarding my TC6 buil., In the spur gear shaft build bag G-GG step 2 there are two small shims supplied, but in the assembly book they are not shown.
I am not sure weather to use them or not.
Can someone give me some advice?

Unfortunately I spent 30 minutes sanding my spec R only for it to leak too. I never had a need to replace parts on any gear diff. If you are replacing parts already something is wrong.

AE coming out with ECS shafts anyone??

Looks an awful lot like convergent evolution, if you ask me. But then again, all of the cars out right now share so many common design elements it's a toss up on any given day. It's the singer, not the song.

i think we are quite lucky in our hobbie/sport with Associated

what other company has its designers/engineers/drivers willingly talk about new gear and how they modify them and inform us of upcomming products so we dont rush out and buy something only to have to replace it in a couple months time with ther newer optimised version.

It is selling in shops for £380 which is about $590!!

What's going on they are $370 at speedtechrc in the US. Even allowing for taxes etc. that is a mad markup. You can get an xray or the new Scumacher for £350

Unfortunately I feel that it is not right so I have taken the decision to go to Schumacher.
They are £339.99 from rccarshop/Mb Models
