The fixed shaft has a 3rd flat spot so you can tighten the set screw for the pully on a flat. If you try to use the one-way pully shaft with the fixed pully, there is a good chance the pully will slip on the shaft under power.

The car should come with a fixed centre shaft... I definately wouldn't advise trying to use the 1way shaft. It will get damaged by the grub screw, and I'm fairly sure it won't hold.

Just thought I'd let you guys know that you should probably steer clear of the one-piece layshaft/spur gear holder made my 3Racing. I'd run mine a couple of meetings and then wanted to change my spur, when I loosened off the grub screw for one of the pullies the pulley was still on tight. After prising it off I noticed that the grub screw had deformed the layshaft and caused it to be a very tight fit. Anyway, racing on carpet tonight and after a smallish hit the layshaft gave way and broke on the pin holes (any ideas why there are even pin holes on it??).

It seemed like a good idea but it seems like the material is a bit too soft and the pin holes really do weaken the structure.

Thanks for the info guys. I thought the car came with a center one way.

Does the BMI spool have replacable outdrives?

I'm sure its so it can be used on a Cyclone 'S' with the stock plastic pulleys which require the pin.

What's the internal ratio on the car? Also, why do I have so much side to side play with the layshaft? Thanks for any help....

The internal ratio is 2.4375.

You need to adjust the position of the two belt pullies to get just the right amount of play on the layshaft. Loosen them off and push them out right to the outside, then tighten. Check how freely the layshaft on it own spins (without belts attached) and if properly set it should spin very freely. If not then loosen on of the pullies off and push it towards the spur gear a little and retighten and check again.
