Here is the setup Kiyo gave me at TITC, the TRF team were all using slight variations on this setup. The track was medium size (50m straight), fast and super high grip - people were traction rolling on asphalt! Its not a big nitro track like it appears in videos, the infield is tighter than it looks.

We started out using 0.5mm shims in the wheels but this pushed a little in the tighter corners so I went to 1mm the same as Jilles when the grip came up and for me that was better.

Default Car makes clicking noises when braking?

Running Tekin RS pro, 17.5 SS Pro non-boosted....

After 6 months of running this car, it now seems to make "clicking" noises when braking....?

No signs of anything strange on the chassis and or belts...they don't seem to be slipping...could this be a motor issue?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!!

Check the drive pin isn't coming out of one of the unis, this isn't so much a problem with the clip system but if you have the older style unis they can work their way out a hit the upright or knuckles

I don't know what kind of "clicking" noises you are experiencing, but check your spur-gear. If you don't tighten the topdeck, the spur-gear can move when braking, which will produce a clicking noise, and ruin your spurgear.

Had a clip come out of a friends car in the 417 axle and it made that same sound as it was eating into the front upright..check your clips are in place in your axle.

The Tamiya gear-diff unit II is the best in my opinion. Minimal leaking and buttery smooth. My Spec-R diffs leaked and felt terrible. They can be made equally good, but the Tamiya is nice out of the box.

Are you using a gear diff in the front? From top speed to when you come to a complete stop does the back end of the car want to come around? If all these questions are answered by yes, it's the gears are stripped in the front. That would explain the clicking sound!
Just my 2$

Currently, the back end does not want to come around, but you never know, perhaps this is the start.

I'm currently using spec-R gear diff with diff lock in the front, but I also have an unbuilt Tamiya Gear Diff Unit II.

Is it imperative that I use Jilles recommendations for building the Unit II (video) even if I plan on using diff lock? What would happen if I don't cut down the gears, will they break more easily?

Appreciate any advise...

Before I start stripping gear diff screws, what tool size is required for the Gear Diff Unit II screws? They look smaller than 1.5mm...in fact, I measured 0.05"

Can anyone confirm the best tool size?

Thanks.

The thought Tamiya diff should be 1.5 and so is the Spec-R
I'm going to double check !
