I noticed that the Center pulley is a little bit wobbley, is this normal? As there's a .5mm gap on each side, do I need to spread out the pulley so the gap will be in the middle or just leave it alone ?
another thing.. I notice the diff pulley for the from is diffrents from the back ones.. does it means if you accidentally switched the diff pulley you will get get an underdrive or overdrive effects ? lastly.. do anyone have a setup for a bumpy asphalt rubber tires ?
thanks in advance..
With any kind of locktite the set screw will not back out again.Don't try to use green locktite,you will harm the set screw when you try to take it off.
I haven't faced that problem,and I didn't use very strong locktite.
You can use shims between the center pulleys and the bearings on each side,but allow the axle to have a little play.
It is impossible to switch the diff pulleys,because the difference is the hole in the middle.
For a bumpy track, just add some kick-up to the front,and a little softer shock oil,and you will be fine.
