I have brought a bomber racing carbon center shaft, a shed load of light weight evo shafts and all a load of evo renforced gears from champ. Japan is cheap as hat. Rick

Default Tyre Traction Fluid

Hi Guys,

After you've left the tyre traction fluid on for a while, do you clean it off with anything. The guys at my track use a break cleaning fluid - is this common?

Cheers, Mark.

Is it titanium grey or is there also a blue one?
Thus far, they only come in titanium grey. However, the blue shaft in the blue conversion kit is also longer than the red surikarn one by 2mm.

I use it because I have Serpent Nitros, too - really looking forward to see how my practising with the Surikarn has helped my Nitro driving! Still lots of snow here in NBG, though

yes, Jürgen will be able replacing the oneway bearings but I haven´t heard any of his have failed since now.
Good to know. Thanks, Mark.

BTW: Got my Mazda body now look really good!!!

Mark.
One interesting thing about the Jürgen one-way--I had always thought that it is a lot heavier than the stock surikarn one-way. However, I put them on the scale today and they both read 13 gram! That was quite a pleasent surprise for me as I've been contemplating switching back the the stock one to lighten my drivetrain.

the shaft is made from Titanium? Quite interesting, as Titanium is, by its nature, a flexible metal.

Cheers, Mark.

I weighed the Jürgen one-way, but never the original - good info! Cheers, Mark.

The new shaft went through a parking lot race today. There was a lot of banging with boards and other cars but to my amazment the bevel gears and one-way held up with no damage whatsoever. I did strip 2 spur gears but I am not sure if that came from debris from the track, not meshing the pinion with spur properly, or that the force of the impact in transferrd to the spur instead.

V12,

Any good ideas where we can get the new light weight Propellershaft from, without having to order from Asia?

I've emailed Moschys to see if he has any - I'll let you know if he has.

Mark.

Don´t know, I think we won´t get the shaft here in a short time.
Maybe I will order something from Asia.
But I´m not shure about the Tamiya shaft. The Team Bomber Graphite shaft looks very good also.
