Two things to check.

1. Ensure the bearing holders on the diff and spool, are sitting in their correctly.

2. On the front pulley, ensure you have attached the plate to the correct side of the pulley. (The side wth the dots around it) A quick way to check this is to look at the car upside down and ensure the pulley falls in the centre of the chassis cutout. If not, you know it's the wrong way around.

Hi Nathan
Just checked both things and they are correct. as soon as the top deck is removed it stops so it looks like it must be something to do with the spur gear holder rubbing the deck maybe, i am going to lightly sand it and shim the spur gear holder so there is no movement side to side to see if that is a solution?

I had the same issue with both kits i built, the diff pulley gear (front belt) rubs slightly on the top deck. Filed it a touch and it was nice and free again.

Yeah reckon that is it Thanks ..... did you show the diff pulley slightly as there is a bit of side movement?

How is everyone finding the new diff? I built mine and it feels like something is binding. Built my second diff without the outer o-rings and it feels just right. Are you able to get it right following kit instructions?

I am running gold front progressives and now yellow progressive rears. Our track is medium high bite right now, so it should get you in the ball park. If you prefer a less responsive car, perhaps out pink all around or pink F blue rear can do the trick as well.

There is 2 ways to build an awsome 15 or 16 free diff.
First is to use the black 500gob o rings instead of the red ones.
Second is to use kyosho p5 o rings and leave the outer black o ring but remove the 0.1m outer washer. I have found both work really well and be consistant.

Reflex Racing I would like to buy some bladders for my 2016 ( Clear bladders, right?). Which bladders and other options are worth trying?

Cheers.

Thanks evochick! Sorry for my ignorance - what are 500gob or rings? My car kept on spinning out on left turns so am trying to isolate the problem :-(

You really need to get the diff consistent and free if you are having issues.

Guys just putting the rear assembly together and where the rear hub assembly attaches to the rear suspension arm it feels quite tight. Do you sand the faces to allow these parts to move completely freely? Or will this free up after a few runs?

yes a very light sanding does the trick,although mine were still a little tight after sanding,(i didnt want to induce slop),i ran the car today for the first time so i will see if it has loosened up some more since

It's the hub assembly in the arm looks like I will need to do a bit of sanding?
