With the wheels on the car check your ride height. (5mm)
Now put the chassis at (8mm)
the tires should be just touching the ground.

Never mind. Just come to my track and I'll show you.

I go to Miramar occasionally and I have called around to hobbie shops and not found a track in San Diego?
Where is it and when is it open?

There is no permanent track but there are 2 tracks that are open everyother weekend. My track is open on everyother Saturday. Next race is the 12th and 26th. After that someone else will be running it. I'm going to boot camp for 2 months.

Pound It Raceway- San Diego, CA- Parking lot racing!!!

The second track is at Discount Hobby Wearhouse. There are open everyother Sunday. Their next race is this Sunday the 6th then the 20th. and so on.

DHW Raceway, Parking lot racing - San Diego, CA

Those are the links to the threads. Next time you're in the aera send me a message and I'll get you set up. Both tracks are with in 5 min. of Miramar.

I puchased the 61402 and I want to use it as a spool as described below. There were no instructions other than assembly included. I can't figure out how or where to add a pin to make it a spool. As a beginner driver, I imagine that the car will be pretty tough to drive without the front wheels assisting with breaking. HELP!!

4. 61334 is just a spool.
5. 61086 is a solid axel with different drive cups.

Spool = Solid axel
one-way = Front tires are not affected by the brakes
Diff = Tires react to both acceleration and brakes but can also spin backwards ( not a good thing.)

Hope this helps.

There are two orings in the center. The pins are located behind the orings.

61402... Their are 3 pieces to this spool.
1x 61402 is the hub for the drive pully.
2x 67715 are the drive cups.
1x 61667 are the o-rings

You need these to make it work.

There should be 2 holes in the drive pully to put pins in.
Insert the drive axels in the pully.
Insert the pins into the pully and through the drive axels.
The pins are kept in by 2 large black o-rings

It should be preaty simple it you have all the parts.

ok.. well... I'm screwed... after seeing the pictures of what you're describing I'm not going to be able to use this part, a waste of $43, the correct part is only $5 more. I should have checked the HB site first. It'll be a bit before I can get the correct one.

This is what I have:

Well if your just going to run a spool I would suggest you just get the ver. 3 spool.

http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/piw.p...=61086&lang=en

And if you want a little more steering with the ver. 3 spool you can replace the steel outdrives with these POM outdrives.

Thanks for the info. I guess at this point that will be the best way to go. My original idea was to get the part that had multiple configurations to keep the cost down, with the ability to test all of the options.

Can you return the one way?

I'm not sure but, I bought it online and I already put it together... I'm definitely gonna look into that though and weight it out as an option. We have a beginner race on Thursdays and I took first place this week and my lap times are coming down nicely. My biggest issue is the car pushing in the wide turns under power and power out of the tight turns due to the rear differential slipping. The plan was to tighten up the rear differential and drop the spool into the front. A Sway bar may also help to keep the inside wheels down.
