    Why don't you just build the balldiff without balls??

    Same thing; try it before you go machine one out.

    Don't need a thrust bearing either...!!



    Tell your dad its probably easier to machine a spool from fresh
    bar aluminium (or steel) rather than mucking about with the
    oneway. Machine it solid in 1-piece with outdrives if he can,
    with dimensions identical to the ball diff.

    Very kind, much obliged! Have sent you PM.
  • Seriously.....

    I'll tell him just to machine one of soild alluminum....I'm sure he can do that considering some of the stuff hes done in the past (heatsink battery braces, servo mounts & numerous other cool things)

    I have the thrust bearing in our Tower wish list & gave him the dimensions to two other bearings I need. I can find the proper size locknut somewhere in the house and I can rob a "locknut holder" off of something

    2 more days until expected arrival of the car...with my luck that'll be 3 or 4

    Trust me.You wont want to run a spool on carpet.Very few get thier cars going well with it on carpet.Plus the added stress of the spool will have you stripping gears alot.Stick to a diff or oneway for carpet.I have owned 2 evo3's and the dont take kindly to front end hits or stress.
  • Thanks J.H....Most likely the 1st track appearence for the car will be Sheldon's on the 15th....I think Lex runs a spool there...

    I should have a diff together soon enough anyway....The Speedtech order will be in within the next few days. All I need then is 2, 5x8 bearings, diff nut/holder and a thrust bearing.

    I don't usually have to worry about hits....Associated wasn't exactly making a living off me when I drove the TC3
  • any picture of the spool?

    I have an extra thrust bearing/bolt/nut assembly you can have since I don't run Tamyia anymore. I'll be at Hobbytown Newark this saturday. Look me up, I'll be with EJ.

  • I woun't be there....Probably woun't be in Newark til atleast June

    I'll be at the next Sheldon's race....
  • Hey...Paul...If you could pop those parts into an heavy duty envolope & send them to me I'll hook you up with a few TC3 parts (an arm, some rear uprights and a tranny case sound good?...i have some more parts too) at the next Sheldon's race or the 1st chance we get to meet

    Shoot me a PM with your mailing info, I'll mail it when I get to SF on Friday. I don't need those TC3 parts so don't bother.
    Thanks anyway,
    Paul
  • PM sent....thanks bro
  • question
    Hi
    Can anyone tell me what it does to the car by putting 2mm spacers under each arm at the back of the car
  • If you jack up both hingepin mounts by the same amount then it'll only change your roll centre.

    If you jack them up by different amounts then you also effect anti-dive and anti-squat.
  • If you put 2mm spacers under the front arm front mount you get anti-dive aka: anti-squat. This prevents the car's nose from diving as much when you brake.....I belive that also prevents some of the weight transfer....I run NO anti-squat in my TC3 because I really need the weight transfer so I can make the corners
