SpeedtechRC generally kicks ass for Tamiya stuff. Steve has lots of useful Tamiya experience...he does the TCS races and everything. You can even pick his brain about setups and stuff.

I think the washers go around the one-way outdrive to space it out. The Surikarn has HD outdrives that have the same dimensions as the original outdrives + washers.

If any of you guys ahve a used, but in good shape SL rear shock tower-I'll buy it. Just PM me please. My rear shock tower is the narrow body post one.


Also-any way to get the white outdrive diff assy REALLY tight without locking the screw down?? MIne are 1/8 out from locked and they still turn. This wont cut it on carpet/foam-car will have no rip untill they are about locked.

Thanks,
Ray

Default best remedy for oneway probs

Heyppl

I have just waded thru a couple of hundred pages of this forumlooking for the definative answer for the above problem.

I have seen 3 different cures and want to know which is the best fix.

I like the oneway and would prefer to keep it if poss, which of the following do you recommend:

a- Tb evo4 alloy gear
b- Xenon racing hard oneway gear
c- ball diff

As these are not easily available in NZ I want to make sure I purchase the BEST fix.

I run reedi Ti 9x2 , orion 12x2 on asphalt , foam tires.

I dont have a problem except when some newby does something stupid like last sunday ,one did a U turn on the main straight and I t Boned him at full speed.

So as a result I strip about one per racedayyour help is appreciated

cheers

loopy

The problem isnīt the oneway gear in first place but the bad construction of the oneway. There were some different options but for me the only real fix is a custom oneway of completely different design. But this isnīt very cheap.
If you wanna go cheap just go with a frontdiff and you wonīt have any gear problems.
The Xenon gear isnīt too much of a difference to the original one. The aluminium oneway gear may be much better but the problem is the little pinion gear will break now.

turbo joe what do you mean by hd outdrives.. the rear gearbox has lightweight delrin outdrives but the front are exaclty the same as the original evos except a lack of washers

Would the lightweight TA04 ones part number 53613 fit? Or would they get chewed out quicker?

Turns out the center of the white outdrive broke. I replaced it with the black outdrives on Difusers recommendation and its pretty well locked up now.

a spool is illegal for TCS racng isnt it?

If you're talking about the front, the HD outdrives for the one-way are p/n 53590.

The standard EVO-III cars I've seen have a slightly shorter outrive cup and they have a couple washers that space them out.

I thought you were trying to lock up the front diff. I just assumed that a spool would be locked down pretty good.

You can't run a spool uless it's a Tamiya spool.

Just get the lightweight shaft and shim it so there isn't much play and they hold up MUCH better. I used to kill one or two each raceday, now it's down to one every 3-4 days. Even then, they never really get messed up bad...you have to look really close to see any damage at all.

I run the standard Tamiya gears.
