Default pls help..

after returning from a great session i found loads of weeds wound up ard the rear rt driveshaft.. as it is covered with mud i stripped off all electronics and gave the truck a good scrub
later when i fixed back everything i found the rear rt wheel is not spinning as smooth as the others, and at low throttle it is obviously slower as well.
could diff gears be damaged? due to the junk being caught up at the driveshaft?
i understand there is no way of knowing til i take out the diff, but as there are no parts avail now, i jus wanna know if anyone had this problem b4? and wat was the damage like?

thanx

Actually it if anything the 43t would limit gearing options.. as you would be limited to 18 or 19t max, either spur will accept down to a 11t on a typical 4.5 motor with stock rotor. Gearing changes obviously for different kv's.. but you get the idea of the relationship and why it's pointless to waste the effort imo. But to each his own.. if you're bored I guess it's something to do :P

14t pinion on the 43t (~41)
13t pinion on the 40t (~41)
13t pinion on the 43t (~38)
12t pinion on the 40t (~38)
12t pinoin on the 43t (~35)
11t pinion on the 40t (~35)

still lmiits you two on the top end of the scale :P not that they are usable unless you have a really low Kv 4pole motor. Not everyone has that nice but expensive motor mount so in your case in the usable range you gain or loose nothing other than the work to mod a spur that doesn't net you any gain. That was the only point. Hack at though.. like I said always fun to mod

When you gave it a "scrub" did you remove you bearings? Chances are you bearings are rusted out. Check them.

Don't know if anyone has mentioned it but although I like the stock body, it does crack pretty easily as it is thin to save weight.

You should put some reinforcement from the lower corner of each windshield angled down to the fender towards the rear of the wheelwell. Also the rear of the body can catch on the ground and tear it up also. I cut my rear fender holes so there was more ground clearance behind the rear wheel and put some reinforcement on it.

I did the reinforcement after it was already cracked and it did that on my first heat running it. So hopefully this will help someone reinforce their nice body before it cracks up.

shoe goo! wheel wells and that space your talking about on the front fender on every body gets hit that I run. I'm into reducing weight but only when it makes sense! I've done it on all my bodies for the last 2 years, before that I was using 100mph (gorilla tape). But the shoe goo is soo much better.
