I was afraid of that.
I'm in the middle of the FS conversion, but I have a question for you guys. I notice there is some play where the short front dogbone is. Do guys use the small black o-ring to take some of that away? Doesn't say so in the FS instructions. Looks like the bone end can come out and mess up either drive cup.
Thanx

I have a zx-5. What do you guys recommend for foam tires?

We have a parking lot at work that a couple of us want to race on.

I ran into the exact problem you're talking about with the front dogbone. Destroyed the drive cup. I inserted a couple small peices of foam and haven't had a problem since. I see no reason why o-rings wouldn't work too.

Can someone describe the handling difference when switching to the front one-way, other than front brakes.

More corner speed and more off power steering and it will pull the car much harder exiting the corner. Can make it a lil tough to drive though

Give the shaft one way a try, It's simple to change. Feel what it does. I suggest readjusting the endpoints on your brakes till they feel smooth because your gonna lose front braking and the car will be less stable.

The SP seems to steer really well i find and is a nice advantage when you can get away without running a one way. The B44 is good like this as well.

You will also notice the nose will tend to stay up more on big jumps and is harder to get down.

I personally don't like oneways. I find that without them you can go much hotter into the corner and transfer more weight to the front tires for more steering. Not to mention more in air control

If this is for the zx-5, and I had the right info then I would say if you can fit about a 22 to 24 tooth pin as novak says to have around a fdr of 8, and that will get you close. Also for that track I would start off with the 22 as the stright is long, but in the infeild having a little more low end grunt is a nice thing to have (I was at that track once last year, as with the way they had jumps set up you needed some of the low end grunt to clear some of the jumps).

In cooler weather or indoor I have run as high as 28/76 with a 10.5. I would start around 25-26 though and temp the motor. I am using SP 10.5 motors.

thanks guys.. this years layout is a lot slower speeds then last years I'm faster with my 17.5 rb5 then with my 7.5 lazer i just can't put the power down and not having a one way input is killing me! hopefully I'll do better next race with a detuned car.
