Not saying it will but it was just something I noticed in the pic. If not then if I ever notice the little washer and square spacer are grinding themselves into my gears I'll switch to your method. I just want to make sure I'm not trading one problem for another.
I didn't notice that really. If you are talking about the length of the tooth vs the length of the tooth on the sun gear, that is why you run the kyosho washers to move the gear up and help line up the teeth by the length. If you are referring to the depth of the tooth on the small gears vs the depth of the tooth on the sun gear I haven't noticed a problem on that either. My diff is butter smooth and I have put it thru alot since the installation.

Thanks for the reply. I was referring to the length of the tooth engaged on the sun gear. If you look at your pics of the diff with one set of spider gears in place but not the other, you can see that the spider gears only engage about half the length of the sun gear. I was sure that the stock setup there was much more contact area but I could be mistaken. I am doing a tear down tomorrow, if there has been leakage of my fluid in the diffs, I'll pull them apart and see.

On another topic, anyone notice that this site is acting flaky again today??

RACETEK, When will your carbon fiber goods be ready for the masses. I talked about them with a few racers this weekend and they all seemed excited about the changes you made.

To you guys runnin the 1415 motor, what kinda temps are you seeing, after how long, with what gearing?
Just put mine in, ran it for 8 mins wit a 16t and it came off at 177*
this seems kinda high to me.

Input?

It is high, mine would come off between 130-140 after two packs back to back. Check you gear mesh and what are your ESC settings? If you are running any timing pull it out, all it does is make heat.

Just curious, but was it on 2s or 3s?

I don't run that motor. I love Castle but marketing that motor to short course guys was criminal. At least for racers who have to use 2S. Anyway, that is a torque motor and you are gearing it like a much higher kv motor. Most people are running 20T or higher if they have the Elite motor mount.

Undergearing can make your motor overheat as much as overgearing can.

Yes, might want to gear up to at least an 18t or higher depending on track size.

Finalizing things this week on a few items and then its on!


On another note...
A friend tried the 1410 on 2s with a 13t pinion this weekend at the indoor 1/8 facility I was at. His Novak 4.5 had a for sale sticker on it after the first battery. That was my first view of the motor and wow that thing has some serious rip! Especially compared to the 4.5's that were running in the same class. After a 10 minute qualifier his motor was 115 degrees and had more than ample power, even on the large 1/8 size track. Thanks for the original recommendation (SaladFork ??? ) I ordered mine yesterday and am just waiting on it to arrive.
