Default broken delrin spools

Yes, it happens a lot guys,

It happens also with me. I broke one delrin spool even without touching anything.

Only the power that the transmission applies on the spool is enough to crack the outdrives.

So I fix the broken delrin spool with Corally alu outdrives (part #79169)


After some adjustements you have to drill with 1mm side to side (both sides)and cross with a hammer a 1mm steel wire trough the hole.

For the Spool-matter, i put my Xray T2-outdrives in the TOP-one way. After drilling a hole in the one way the hex of the Multidiff fits perfect and we have a very strong spool. To solve the axle-problem (soon to be solved by TOP ) i used my T2-axles with the blades and i didn't have a problem the whole weekend with a 4,5 LRP brushless.

When TOP solves the front they can get out again, but for now i'm happy with my solution.

By the way: the second round of the Dutch Nationals are won this weekend by Jan van Steeg with a TOP Scythe Red Edition. After TQ in the 19T-qualifiers he finished both A-mains with a 10 sec lead. Congrats to Jan and TOP, TQ and win at the first appearance of the Scythe!!



greetz,

Eric

The two part top deck is not a TOP part. Only difference on the 2007 model is the 2.5mm lower deck (up from 2mm) and red anodising (popular demand).

Default Top Deck Mod

Probably been asked before, but..............................

What does that modification of the top deck result in performance wise over the standard top deck?.

Is the 2.5mm bottom chassis better than the 2mm for asphalt racing?

Cheers
Aaron

2mm chassis is working so good dont see a need for teh 2.5.
Guess its also to cater for the US carpet spec guys.

@ razzor: As sosidge has said, the top deck was created with my Dremel The advantages over the one-piece deck are: equal flex from left to right, reduced possibilites of tweak and also easier access to the layshaft/spur gear.
Other things different on my car shown in that picture:
Carbon suspension arms

Aluminium differential upgrade set in the rear

Servo moved to the forward position with a shorter turnbuckle used

Ballstud going into the steering bellcrank has been shimmed up 4mm to provide a more level link between servo and bellcrank

Ackermann plate removed and steering bellcrank screwed into rearward hole underneath the original plate position, shimmed up 3mm to make up for the dissapearance of the plate and an extra 1mm to eliminate bump steer

As you can see, a lot of this deals with the front end steering section of the car.

@zacabrandy, I have tried the 2.5 chassis on asphalt and, despite its increased rigidity, it works perfectly fine on the dusty, bumpy tracks we have in the UK. It is a lot more consistent and predictable than the 2mm chassis on the track.

Ali,

I see you are not using the sway bars with the car, I find that without the sway bars the car is really unpredictable. How are you getting around this? and does it have any more performance without the bars.

The problems Im having is on initial turn, the car understeers for a little bit and the other problem is direction changes, I am finding it hard to get the car to change direction quickly and this is costing me dearly at the moment.

Any help would be great.

racing on asphalt tracks, stock with a spool

Cheers
Aaron

Hi Aaron,

The roll bars were not on the car in that picture as it was taken before my first run on that particular day, by the end of the day I had connected them back up, and found them to make the car twitchier, which also provided more steering mid-corner. This was when using a 1.4 rollbar on the front and a 1.2 on the rear. On the track I was testing at, I found the car was more predictable without rollbars, but this is not the same story everywhere.
Regarding your setup problems, what droop, roll centres and shock pistons/oils/springs are you running?
