For the spools come over and say hello Troy will be in mine and Peters pits acting as Pit Bi***. Make sure he is your friend as he is building them and also will be helping out with tech on Sat and Sun.
There should be plenty of spools made he is hoping to bring down 15-20 some in SS and some in Alum. the SS are heavier but wear alot better the alum is featherweight but do wear quickly I will probably go through 2 during Reedy possibly 3.

I will try to find the original proto I can't find it on my laptop

Not sure on pricing but he is trying to keep them at $15 or so no promises they are first rate and the proto polished up nice and pretty lots of bling bling.

GT I did it with 19T with a 540 you should be OK. I built the first with the orig diff and the losi snadpaper rings. Maybe the car did not like the losi parts inside (haha)

If there is great interest for Reedy contact me so we can get enough for those who will be there. After Reedy they will be available to all who want them.

For those who want contact me off list so I can make a list and get them for all who want them

How did your spool beak? Or what part of it broke? Do you think the sandpaper spool could handle a 23 turn motor? I live in the Phhilippines and have a big race in two weeks time so I will propably make one. Any tips on building one? Thanks.

i think the out drives would break easily if you didn't put the clips back on them.

Davioh:

- Polish your rings. I always wet sand them with 2000 grit sandpaper
- Make sure your balls and rings are clean, I use goof off
- assemble with Tamiya ball diff lube
- should be smooth as silk!

On the spool:

If any are left after Reey, I'd love one (or two). Difuser, I'll drop you an email.

23T should be OK. If it is really high bite with a hard board hit or heavy unloading (dot jump) you could have issues.

Remember guys the spool does not make or break a set-up but it give you the yank of a 1-way off the turn but 4wd braking into the turn. You don't notice alot of difference with the car when driving. Just another tuning aid to lower lap times (or raise them if not set-p correctly)

For those who have requested spools I am keeping a list and will get all of you taken care of respective of Reedy and after. The person making them said bring them on he'll make more

davioh: the middle body post is to hold up the body shell so that it wont get pressed in if you roll the car, for most people its unecesary but when your at the top and your body gets deformed by a roll then it will help it keep its shape.

Dan,

Have you built up a diff witht he AW grease for testing yet? Feels pretty good so far...not as positive as a spool, but still does a decent job off the corners.

(I was ready to rock fo Sat. but as fate would have it it is going to rain this weekend

Bet your glad you did not fly down now!

JC
