Grapejuice,

I dont have a 1.3mm bit. Do you have one at the shop? If so, I'll just build my shocks Sunday. Otherwise I'll try the stock setup with 30/27.5 oil and see how that goes

1.3mm is your .050" hex driver. Oh, you mean drill bit. I have an entire bit index I will bring that you are welcome to use. I can drill my spares for you and we just swap. How'd that be? Mike your lid looks awesome. Did you paint that up?

Thanks everyone the direction on the thread lock & CVD. Much obliged . . .

Bring them on Wednesday and Grape or myself can show you the hot setup (since I copy him, you know....its all the same)

I think the only thing I have different is I'm running a rear sway bar, unlike others no traction rolls yet

Light green springs in front
37.5 weight in front
3 hole pistons
inner on tower, outer on arms

dar green springs in rear
30 weight
3 hole
middle on tower, middle on arms

10k front/5k rear

Going to swap to 7/3 and also the 1* rear hubs... but this setup was good enough to beat everyonbe in the mod class with me running a 13.5!

I will race both Wednesdays and Saturdays weather permitting! And how do you know that I do not have the hot setup? No matter because I have not raced 10th scale since January. You guys will eat my lunch but I will not be in the way for long!!

Hi Guys,

I went through this exact same thing, I also filed the points of the pin etc.......

The real issue (for me) was the fact that the gear cover/spur retainer molding for this part is to "fat" around the bearing section. Try this experiment when you first put the new molding on:

1) Put the spur in place without the front to rear drive-shafts in place.

2) SPIN the spur gear - should be nice and free spinning.

3) Put the cover in place without the retainer pin in. The spur should still spin smoothly and friction free.

(The next step is where I discovered that the retainer pin was not the issue - but excess material in the bearing seat molding. This issue forces pressure on the bearing - " crushing" it and causing not only friction, but makes the pin increadibly hard to get through as the holes don't line up because of the distortion caused by the bearing forcing the molding up. This is what makes it difficult to get the pin through to the other side).

4) Put the pin in as far as you can with the spur in place - note the friction!!

5) Get out your dremel tool and use the sanding drum to "profile" the shape of the bearing section of the plastic molding until you get a snug fit to the bearing that DOESN'T cause friction - yet allows the pin to go through.Only remove SMALL AMOUNTS of material at a time - don't go to far - or your spur gear will have unwanted play.

5) With the spur, pin and molding in place - ensure that the spur spins as freely as possible.

6) Put everything back in place as normal including the front and rear drive shafts. Sit back and admire how much smoother the transmission feels and how easy the pin is to put in and out.

Hope this helps you guys out some - several people here in Australia have tried this and have improved not only the reduction of friction in their cars - but also easier battery changes.

Cheers

Darryn Johnson

Finally, I think have a final setup for SMAC in St. Louis.
Here are the files. Hope it helps someone out. Track is 40x90 hard packed dirt. We run ghosted tires.n Save the files (save target as) to your desktop and then you can blow them up with a jpg viewer.

I see the buggy uses a hex up front and pin in the rear like AE and Losi . Will B44 and XX/XXX-4 wheels fit ?
