I may be misinformed but when I spoke with support at Cen they said that you can use the cross pins in the aluminum diff cups. You just need to shim them. I hope it's true cuz I really dont want to switch to the plastic ones

I had an awesome race this past weekend with my TR.
Aug 4th and 5th were the Alberta finals for the CORCS series. (Canadian Offroad Championship Series)

This race was held in Calgary and was hosted by our local club RCGEARS.

My truck handled very well and I was able to put down some very good laps. I had no problems staying on the tails of Losi and Jammin truggies.

I ended up finishing 2nd in the B main after bump ups were removed.

I am very confident with this truck, and have yet to break anything, well except that servo saver.

I do believe that the CEN cross pins will work in the aluminum diffs but will require you to take your time shimming the gears, Genes cross pins already come with the correct thickness washers and shims to take the guess work out of the equation.

I do not see an issue with the plastic diff cases for the new cross pins, they seem to be working very well for a fellow CEN racer here in Calgary. And they are cheap.

What should you run for length of fuel line from the carb to tank?

Also from pipe to tank?

Thanks

Josh

From the pipe pressure nipple to the tank inlet you would usually want a minimum of 12inches, this helps reduce the pulsing which comes from the engine. Some guys also put a fuel filter on their pressure line to act as an equalizing chamber (I dont)

The fuel line from tank to the carb is probably one for debate. I have seen guys run shortest possible and I have also seen guys have 2 ft of fuel line wrapped around their car.
In thoery the longer the fuel line the longer an engine can run upside down.
Multiple fuel filters seem very popular. .

The biggest thing with fuel line is to run it away from any moving gears and away from the hot engine. Cold fuel is better than hot.

The new cross pins will work with the aluminum diff cases. You just need to use a 1mm thick washer between each small bevel gear and the diff case. The shims that come with Gene’s hardened cross pins work great or you can pick the washers up at the local hardware store. I like the plastic diff cases better also.

I'm running a kingheadz mount for a st-r, fits well. I like the idea of the plastic diff cases, it reduces rotating mass, and that's always good.

Yes, always use nuts on the engine plates.
