Okay, I got that part figured out. Thanks for the help!

This is my first on road car build so I do not know much. My 1/8 buggy went together easily ^_^

I have another question though. Inside the differential, the manual calls for two Z857 1 mm aluminum 5x8 washers. Cyclone Charlie, did your kit have these? I cannot find them for the life of me. If you have them, could you show me a picture of them?

Forget about the washers. Use 2 of the B020 bearingd instead. These kits are a little confusing. They have some of the newer items incorporated into them, and still have some of the older stuff.

It's like they had a surplus of older stuff and threw into the newer kits to get rid of it.

I'm still going round-and-round with HPI about using the older 3 hole version one-way and discontinuing the A496 pulley.

There should be an extra bearing supplied with the diff, use this instead of the 2 spacers.

EDIT: Looks like someone beat me to it...

My final noob question:

Do you guys round the edges of every CF part?

This is true - Andy Moore prefers these pulleys to the newer thinner pulley exactly for the reason that it holds the lube around the balls in the pulley for longer.

just ran my first race with my cyclone this last weekend and i am very impressed with it. i still had the center one way in so it was a bit of a handful on a tight track running stock. center one way shall be fixed as well as front one way before the next race.

Does someone know the partnumber of these older wide diff pulleys, or are the thinner ones direct replacements for the older ones?

It should be a direct replacement, however if you are looking for the pulleys for a v1 spool or v1 one-way they are different.

I have also found with the old pulley that the diff balls not only keep the diff grease in them longer, but also the balls rotate on a slightly wider radius on the diff ring, it seems as though the diff has less of a tendancy to slip.


I still can not understand why no TC manufacturer runs big diff rings like on 12th scale cars, diff action can be smoother, with much less force.

If you look at post #8402, you'll see an explanation for the pulleys and their part numbers.
