Hi all,

I just received my Df-03 yesterday. And i have one and just one big problem.

As soon as i have pre-assembled the rear diff, i just noticed the "diff nut", which micht be made of plastic -I donno- was not there !!!

Actually I need two of them, one For the rear one and one for the front one.

I got aluminium nuts to TIGHT the screw, but i Didn't have the plastic item, called "D5" on the instruction manual, to put the aluminum nut in it and then TIGHTEN the diff

I didn't have find any references for that. neither in the instruction manual or on the net. I'm so disappointed

Could someone help me please ? What can I do ?

Thanks !!!

The part D5 is on the D-parts tree located on p.25 of your instruction manual, part #51251 $5.75 Retail. It is on the same parts tree that contains the hubs.

The installation instruction for this part is on p.4, step 2 of your instruction manual.

The manual is also available for download www.tamiyausa.com

Hi all,

I ordered the one-way, slipper and many replacement parts for my DF-03 one week ago

Presently, I would like to change my shocks .
I was thinking about the 3racing ones, or GPM ones (for B4) ... because it's not much pricey ...
But I have doubts What do you think about the quality of these schocks ? Are they strong built, reliable, efficient ?
If not, Which ones do you recommend to me ?

Many thanks for your help all
Sim

Hi all again,

I haven't received the slipper and the one-way as well as the heat sink, but I somehow have a question ... Cannot wait

Can I use a "48" spur pignon with the Tamiya Slipper ? Hope I can ...

Because Tamiya spur is a "0.5 module" and i Suppose it's not the same than Generic "48" spur, which should be 0.6 module (i think)

Thanks by advance,
(Hope you understood my question but I don't speak english very well - it's an headache for me )

0.5 works out to be about 47 1/2 dp, it is very close to 48p but I have not tried it with the 48p pinions, as for a spur I tihnk you may be able to get them to work

The only spurs that fit the Tamiya slipper are the Tamiya ones, due to both the layshaft diameter and the way the slipper pads are keyed into the spur gear.

You could run B4 spurs but you would need to ream out the spur hole to 5mm diameter, plus use B4 slipper pads.

I believe you could do the same with ZX5 Lazer spurs too.

I think if you get a few 0.5 pinions off ebay stores combined with the spur gears included in the kit then you have a decent ratio range.

I have a brand new still in shrink wrap Dark Impact for sale in the For Sale forum here if anyone is interested. Hopefully, this link works, if not, just search the thread:
http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=135418

I have one, and they are nice buggies, but decided not to build the second - will be focusing more on on-road stuff for a while.

Thanks.

OK, new to this thread, but very familiar with racing. 1/8 nitro and 2wd B4.

A couple questions for the guys whom have been running the Dark Impact, I just picked one up and plan to race it next saturday(indoor offroad), I have the carbon fiber shock towers, titanium turnbuckles and alloy steering shaft, all on the way. As for this whole slipper setup deal, I would like to run the 48p B4 setup since I own 2 B4's. What B4 parts do I need? Shaft, plates,pads, spring, nut, etc...?? And I have an extra set of B4 shocks, will they work? Do only the Tamiya wheels fit? Thanks in advance.

Maybe I need to copy/paste this question into the other thread.

also, you can carefully ream a b4 spur using b4 pads if your handy with a reamer and have steady hands ;-)
