Default Web site updates

I switched web site carriers and made a few updates to the web site. There is a new products page showing some of the new parts I have come up with. take a look and let me know what you think.

The lightest one I have found prior to this was molded, 3g and flexed considerablly, and wasn't true to the hub. If nothing else, I thought it looked pretty trick. Mot sure if there is any interest in such a gear, but I thought I would share it.
can you make these for 1/12 pan cars?

what about the yok mr4tc? could you make one for that. maybe with carbon ends. that would be awsome. i can get them for $25 now. but i have to ship them from japan because they dont have any in the USA store anymore. sounds like a great idea though. expecially if you can do it cheap. how about axles our something. could you make those carbon? that would be cool. and i would deffinitly buy them from you.

I have made the drive shafts for the Yok before, but the stock aluminum doner shafts are no longer sold. If you have a spare, I can make you a carbon shaft for $25 plus $3 return shipping. Just PM or email me for details.

I am not sure if I can make one for the EVO 5 as I beleive Tamiya changed the ends. If someone can send me a pic of the EVO shaft out of the car, I can say for sure. However, I have them for the EVO 4 in stock.

I corrected the URL for my update web site. Hope it now works.
Erik

I can make the gears for 1/12th scale. I have plans to make a few 100T to start with. The hole pattern I have for the current generation fits touring cars or pan cars using the stealth diff. I could also make one for the larger diff as well, although they will be slightly heavier. The gears will run $12 each, plus shipping. I know it is a little pricy, but it has to be worth my while to make them.

Default Ultra light diff halves - Tamiya TA05

I just finished up a set of ultra light diff halves for a friend. They are pretty trick. If anyone is interested, I think I can make similar ones for the Tamiya 415, Tamiya EVO5, or HB. Not sure about the Xray cars, but I am sure something similar is possible. Take a look and let me know what you think.

"Whip Racing ultra light diff halves for the Tamiya TA05 series of cars, new in the package. These diff halves start life as original Tamiya option parts, Tamiya part #53919. They then receive the Whip Racing special CNC treatment, removing just the right amount of material to not sacrifice strength. They weight 5.7grams, or about 20% less than stock, and are extremely light and ultra true. They look like Swiss made precision watch parts. Please note the picture comparing the Ultra light Diff halves to their stock equivalents . Because they start life as Tamiya parts, they are direct replacements for the stock plastic or upgraded aluminum diff halves. "

Default TA05 Diff Halves

The first batch of TA05 diff halves are already spoke for. The next batch will be available after Thanksgiving. If interested in preordering, let me know and I will put you on the list. I have lowered the price to $30 a pair. I can also make them for the Tamiya 415 series or Hot Bodies Cyclone (others will cost more). The Xray Diffs might also be possible, but I have yet to see one opened.

Retro Fitting also Available.
I can also retro fit the aluminum diff halves for the TA05, Tamiya 415 or Hot Bodies cars. $20 a pair for retrofitting.

Also, I hope to have the lightweight spur gears availble next week sometime.

Erik

I don't have a set of the plastics to compare. I would think they are nearly the same after the machining process, maybe 0.5g heavier. However, they will not flex or break like the plastic ones are prone to doing. Also, the diff rings will not slip like on the plastic diff halves.

Can you rebuild other carbon fiber shafts. I have a CF shaft for my Yokomo SSG and it unfortunatly was rubbing something and splintered. So I have it but just need the carbon shaft replaced the ends are still good.

Thanks,
James

James,
I can rebuild most stock aluminum shafts into a carbon shaft (TC3, TC4, SSG, HPI, etc). However, I beleive the Yokomo shaft has a small carbon center section that fits inside a hole in the aluminum tips. The carbon tube I use is larger in outside diameter and has a hole in its center for the tip to fit inside. I don't think I could rebuild the CF shaft you already have. That said, if you have a stock aluminum shaft laying around, I can retro fit it into a CF shaft. The retro fits run $25 plus return shipping. At this time, I can only do retro fits for the SSG as Yokomo stopped selling the stock aluminum part in the US.

Erik

Default Tamiya EVO 5 CF drive shaft

Just finished the first Tamiya EVO V drive shaft for a fellow racer in South Africa. It turned out very nice and is the lightest one I have made for any car - 5grams. The stock part I beleive was between 9-10grams. Currently I am not stocking these parts because the car is so rare (I had to order the donor shaft from Hong Kong). However, if anyone is interested, I can custom make them (special pre-order) given a 2 week lead time.

Erik
