vi3tishduy, ross means 50mm and 52mm in diameter. The width is immaterial in essence, as you can cut it to whatever width you want.

You might find when it doesn't fit even with heat, you have to grind off the inner lip of the wheel to fit it on. I had to with my PSE rims. Its relatively easy, you can do it with a hand file if you can be bothered, but a bench grinder is good. Just don't think you can put regular tyres on after that, that's all.

If the ABS is too big, what some guys have done (didn't dave do it ross?) is tape around the wheel until it was a snug fit, then just push it on.

thats another way that they do it, however boiling is much better, as it gets an all-round heat source, and not the addition of the hot pan melting the face of the tyre.

Default question about front one way's..

so ive been reading up on this front one way diff.. and from what i get out of it is, on the throttle, your 100% on the drive shafts.. once you let off the gas, the fronts spin freely and wont accept braking power..

now.. this is quite expensive.. associated being top of the list.

with the physical construction of the one way diff.. isn't it all in the housing bearings?

i found AE part number 1731.. the 1 way bearings them self for 8 bucks.. wouldn't you think i could just stick those on my diff now? and basically have a front one way without all that fancy aluminum? the aluminum diff in the kit is still a functional ball type diff. no different than the one thats in my car now. right?

one way bearing.. #1731 $8
one way kit.. #1728 $61

i cant stand drifting with a oneway once u get on the breacks and turn u spin u got nutral and turn u spin... i find the most effective bass is to ball diffs tighten the rear one and tighten the front just alil so it is stiff but still turnable.

Default I like oneways

I like one way diffs for racing and for drift.

As for converting a ball diff...

...I don't know how well this will work. A one way diff doesn't usually have balls in it (at least for the tamiya ones). The contruction is quite different from the standard ball diff, no grease, no balls, no thrust bearing, etc etc. But you could try it.

the construction of the diff looks very similar.. i dont' know for sure, but it obviously has to fit in the same diff cover's..

anyways, i should of looked alittle harder.. but it seams the outdrive cups on both units are different sizes.

i figured i could use the same 1 way bearing on my stock setup, but they're different diameter outdrives.

oh well, i might be on the market for a front one way soon.

whatever the guy who said he spins all the time said, it doesn't apply to all cars.

if you start spinning out, give it some stick and you won't.

i've got both of my diffs locked. they're gear diffs, and i've just stuck some cotton fabric to lock em. best and easiest way to do it I say. no stuffing around with different greases or anything. just lock it and fuck it.

If you lock your diffs how do the cars go? do you just stuff cotton balls inside the outdrive box? also what do you guys think is best for drifting, shaft or belt? Im going to invest in a ta05 because my tc3 is falilng apart. I'm not willing to invest in it anymore sigh.. Its nicely hopped up but not worth it to keep it up with the parts. Ta05 here i come baby.

Supposedly shaft drive is better but it makes a minimal difference. The TA-05 is an excellent drifter. I lock both of my diffs for a little bit more oversteer. I lock them with JB quick. But then when I convert it back for rubber tires the JB quick comes out somewhat easily.

for my car.. a TC3.. we have ball style diff's.. so by removing the actuall ball's out of the diff, and tightening down the set screw.. the diff doens't have the chance to equal out, and offer better steering.

right now i have the fronts stock. and the rears tightened to the MAX on the balls.. its working out pretty well. i just want a front one way, so i can pull the e-brake and swoop a huge 180.. hehe
