Hi Guys
Ive been an avid fan of Losi for years now, and was very impressed with the new design front drive-shafts on the Losi Type 'R' they came up with, to eliminate the chatter when using a spool, and to help stop the wear and tear to the drive shafts cups on the Clones and others out there of similar design (even though I have a Drill-Shaft-Tool to drill 3 sets of new holes so as to re-use them again and again and again)
( http://www.coolcanfan.com/uk/drillshaftshop.php)
I was looking at the 'R' and thought to myself they look like they might just fit and low and behold they do All you need to do is to remove/get the complete hub assembly from an 'R' including drive-shaft as it fits into the Clones caster blocks exactly, you need to put the ball stud under the hub carrier instead of it being on top,the only difference is that the ball stud linkage is in a slightly different place, but to resolve this, I reckon remove a shim on the Ackerman to bring the turn-buckles back in line, or drill another hole in the arm for the ball stud to line up. If this has been done before then I appologise as im new to the Clone

A larger layshaft pulley makes the drivetraing more efficient.

Hi
I will let you know later, I will also take some measurements to make sure the geometry is the same.

I don't know if you mean a 48dp or 64dp spur, but with 48dp a 81t spur is the max you can have. With 64dp it's max is with a 108t.

Hi Tell long time no here (I still owe you for those putnam brushes )
Yea have defected welll nearly as I have a Clonosi now Just finished the drive-shaft change (9616 & 7) and there is no chatter whatsoever I noticed that the hubs on the Losi R were a tad longer 1mm in total than the Clone, but then the hex is 1mm narrower so is the same geometry. I have also drilled a hole in between the original holes the longer arm on the Losi 'R' hub carrier to bring the steering arms back in line, and took a little material from the inside of the caster blocks, so as to not let the heatshrink tubbing on the U,J, joint rub on the caster. Here are some pics of th finished project and will be running it tomorrow night
Cheers Malc
