A spool is a locked diff, no diff action at all.

Out of curiosity....I know the Reedy Race of Champions mandates full time 4-wheel drive (no one-ways), yet there were some Evo III Surikarn Limited's in the fields. Whats the part number/where can you get an Evo III ball diff? Is a TB01 or a TB02 ball diff assembly compatible?

Pick up a spool from Steve at Speedtech RC. They use the older style oneway-gear (thin ones?) and have been lightened extensively. DIALED.

Edit:

Here's the link to the speedtech page: Spoolio

Anyone here tried using torque rods ala Ta04-R? What benefits will it bring to the car? Thanks

I race on concrete at nite with tamiya A tires and an LRP V7.1 speedo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bro have you tried running modified motors??! Try it on your suricarn edition.. definitely you will find it too fast if your just a beginner in RC world...

Try reedy modified motors the TI, PT, and KR.. or try the LRP brands fusion is the best...

If you've read thru some of the previous pages, you'll have known
that Tamiya does not sell any EvoIII diff kit - need to build it from parts.

Get:
1x TA04 ball diff kit
1x EvoIII outdrives
1pr F201/EvoIII diff rings
2x 850 bearings
1x EvoIII diff gear

For your front diff buy the BLACK outdrives.
The white (dearer) ones are too brittle.

Bro, I don't have the time to read through 200 pages

Do I really have to get the TA04 diff kit? Can't I just piece it together using the TB-02 Diff outdrives, Evo III diff gear, and some TC3 diff parts

BTW: I don't have the car yet...what are the 2 850 Bearings for?

Can I just slap one of these in http://www.carttonic.com/catalog/ind...=0,13203,16711

EDIT: I just need the cheapest way to build a ball diff...keep in mind I have parts from the TC3 if that will ease any cost (ie...trust bearings...diff screw/sping/nut) Anything that will cut the cost is a big help as of I have NO cash and need to basically save my lunch money for this... I can't drive a car with a front one-way so its not even gonna touch the track until I get a differential in the front of that car

There is a great "Seach/Display By Posts" function above...

I don't know if TC3 bits will fit, guess you can go find out. You need to source the long M2 centre screw, the thrust bearing, the M2 nyloc nut, the tension spring & the diff balls.

850 bearings are used in the diff, when you get your car & manual it'll be self explanatory.
