Interesting, I have only ever had this come off once and I thing that was due to not tightening the grub screw enough.

But other wise the loctite works a treat, even for the small screws that hold the one way diff gear.

Don't use Tamiya's treadlock on the Unis... use a liquid anaerobic type like Loctite blue (non-permanent) stuff. And don't just put it on the grubscrew, drip it into the screwhole.

For extra security... nothing stopping you wrapping the outside of the unis with a little tape, so it holds the pin in even if its loose.

No uni problems so far.
(University? That's another story...)


But one of my shockers managed to disassemble itself last w/e.
Dumped its sump all over the arm & tyre - lucky it was a rear.

Are you serious about that shock? Last week my FL shock also stuffed up. The cap thingo on the bottom unscrewed and oily goodness was all over the place. Sad thing is i raced the whole day wondering why my rear wheel would keep lifting up during the corners lol

okay, I'm going to put in my axiom tuned monster stock... but am having a dilema as to which spur and pinion to install...

I have the 72 and 66 tooth spurs(kimborough) and a full assortment of pinions... I know from a few posts behind that a 96/30 or 96/31 would be a good place to start....which is a 8.1 or so final drive ratio. so which would be a better choice 72/23 or 66/something? Last time I had one, I kept getting passed by the p2k's and such.

Well the higher the FDR, the more bottom end youll get. Are the P2K's beating you on the straits? Or out of turns? And what size of a track is it?

That's not being very efficient. you would think this probelm has been addressed and solved with Tamiya.

Is this a joke? Do you really need to change the diff/oneway gears if you race more than once with it?

Is this problem present in stock racing too?

Not sure if it's a joke but it's a problem that you think would have been fixed, especially when your talking about a high end price kit.

what size spur do most of you use with a stock motor?

any suggestions for a Team Orion core stock?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I will try to use 62 spur with 34 titanium pinion with a stock motor, i.e. final drive ratio of 4.74 ... all the guys in our track have the cars setup this way ... have anyone tried such ratios before?

Last time I had one, I kept getting passed by the p2k's and such.
I have used Trinity Monster Pro and Fantom Tuned Monsters and have geared at up to 5.6 with good success. The motor comes back just warm after 5 minutes of racing.

I either use a 90 tooth 0.4 spur or an RW 71 tooth 48 pitch spur with the monsters.

I think 5.8 to 6.0 is a good ratio to start with. The tracks I race at have a straight which is about 35 - 40 meter long (~115 feet) and the rest of the track is flowing but not super fast.

Being very smooth with the throttle helps heeps with motor temperature as well, a stop/start style of driving will burn it up at these ratios.

Hope this helps.

Tony

With a 540 I have geared at 5.01 on a tight track and the car has been flying past everyone else.

like a 72/21 or 72/25. (which is what i had before on my evo2 I used to have) But i was getting beat on both straightaway and infield....haven't tried it on the evo3 yet.
