Any Q's about this kit....? (Besides when it will be in stores)



I have been running mine for a few weeks on an outdoor track with a bumpy, fluffy-to-sometimes-hard-packed, red clay surface. The updated/revised diff is holding up really well; staying 'smoother' longer, as are the new gears in the tranny. All of the new parts are very durable, too, as I have yet to break ANYTHING at all.

Other than the size, is there any design difference between the old and new diff.

The diff itself- besides the dimensions of gear- is different, yes. It uses a really trick new diff screw that is machined with two circumferential slots just inside the head that allow you to insert two of blue foam washers. The use of two of the foam washers makes for a nice dust-resistant seal inside of the outdrive. There is also a slight revision around the thrust assembly, using a combination of standard thrust washers and beveled washers. On the baskside on the diff, a spring has replaced the stack of beveled washers. And of course, it is placed lower and further forward on the rear of the car.

Are the outdrives the same? I.e., still be able to run the plastic slider drive shafts.

JohnB- The plastic slider outdrives WILL fit, I'm pretty sure, but you will probably have to shorten the length (slightly) of the actual male and female slider shafts. I haven't personally tried sliders on the BK2. The universals and CVD's that fit the new car are a little shorter than standard XXX measurements.

Tones- It is going well. I have only made minor changes on the tracks I have been to in the past 6 weeks; springs, hub positions...I am running on high bite indoor clay this weekend, so it should be interesting to test the optional holes on the arms and hubs, if warranted. I will try to post specific set up info later in the week.
