Now with the 408 set-up you'll be needing to replace the pinion which IMO isn't a smart idea, Now your Ring and Pinion mesh will be out as a R+P wear as 1 and replacing the pinion due to the CV end being worn out will start to mess with your shimming.

Looks cool in pics no doubt but as to the theory behind it, Id like to know from gerd or who ever came up with the idea.
ring and pinion wear? whats that about 2 years worth of driving? not an issue. just rebuild the cvd internals every season, done.

Exactly what i was saying.

j_blaze14 read it again, Its not the fact the ring and pinion wear its the fact the pinion is matched to that ring gear and when its time to replace the pinion (due to it being backwards and the natural wearing on that particular part) you'll have an unmatched R+P unless you replace it all which could be pretty expensive.

CV internals need to be replaced sooner then later, A worn CV internal (or w/e you wanna call it) lets the pins go flatter sooner and have more backlash which leads to even faster wear.

Ryan could we get a pic of the normal wear items ?

Ryan,
I was glad to see you going to TD. I have the 410 and love the design and that car is extremely fast. Waiting on the 408 to hit the streets.

I noticed you have a pink headed Alpha. Are those heads specially made for your color scheme or is it a new model?

Kind of ironic to have a sub $200 motor running in a $700 car. Nothing wrong with Alpha as I love mine but just ironic. Kind of like Hara running a $500 OS in a $250 HB.

Good luck in Thailand next week, I'll be tunning in on LiveRC.

The Cooling head on Ryan's Alpha is made just for him.

The head at the Thailand track did get scratched up around the edges a bit. I think under normal circumstances however that the head should be fine. It doesn't hit when placing your car upside down. Just from the huge bad landings I took in Thailand.


What s the weight of YOUR car? what are the part you are made it lighter?
Approximately 3360 with Wishbone tires. That is with Titanium turnbuckles, and Aluminum PSM axles. I will be adding some Lunsford Titanium screws this week and will give you a final weight of my car fully trimmed out.

6 screws for the front and rear diff, how it s easy for the radio tray?
Radio tray, if you want to take it out completely is 8 screws. 4 for the side guard, and 4 for the tray. If you just want to change battery or receiver it is 3 screws.

Any bad issu regarding the steering servo and "splash" fuel?
Not as of yet, servos are generally pretty resilient, I've ran in very wet conditions a few times and my servos continue to work so I'm sure it's going to be okay.

How look the pin of the driveshaft of your car after your week of trainning at Pattaya?
I can't give a completely fair assessment on this because the car I got to use for practice was the original prototype and it already had countless gallons on it before I began running it in Thailand. I don't think the wear is excessive at all though IMHO.

Did you have any bad issu during your training that you cant tell us :-)?
Nothing out of the ordinary. The crashes took on that track were horrendous. Many times worse than on any track i have ever been to. So I was really quite impressed with how everything held up.

Thanks for your answer

Best regards

Ps: sorry for my bad english hope you Will understand my questions :-)

How long do people expect the ring and pinion to last? I feel the ring and pinion on this car are lasting forever. I know Gerd had a couple of gallons on the car before he gave it to me. I ran 2.5 gallons in Thailand and another 1.5 gallons here in the states and the ring and pinion still look new. What more can you ask for?? I've ran cars in the past and seen current cars go through more than a set of ring and pinions in a day...I'm very happy with how it's all set-up.

For normal wear items I would say the CVD pins are lasting at least 5 gallons because that is how long I have on them and still have only replaced one at the moment (because it wore through the PSM Aluminum Axle)
I would say currently the number one thing to have extra spares of are the adjustment bushings in the suspension holder blocks.

Awesome information. THank you very much. Any other recommendations on what other spare parts it might be a good idea to have? Cannot afford 2 kits of this car just yet.
