Has anyone had any troubles fitting RW spurs to the Layshaft plastic hub???

On my previous Scythe i ran an RW spur, but i cant seem to make it fit on my '08 kit... not sure whether its the spur being small or the hub being big but it just wont fit

Cheers

Robbie

What is your guys routine for diff rebuilds especially for mod ??
I have changed to ally diff halfs and ceramic balls but they seem to wear out teh diff rings rather quick.
I usually rebuild after every club meet.

Tamiya rings work well and fit perfectly... They last a while too....

Try the new black ceramics they work the best of those that I have used.... Also try and chanmge the thrust bearing to a one piece ceramic. That will improve diff life quite a bit but you should rebuild between meets anyway to get best performance.

I am running the TOP ceramic diff balls, and a Tamiya thrust bearing and my diff has been smooth as thus far.

Though i race stock/19t so the stress is obviously alot less.

I got the rolling chassis done and I like the way it looks. I want to put on a motor guard and looking at the chassis I'll have to drill out a couple of holes to install on like on the X-ray T2.....

I gave mine it's first run-out last night. Was impressed. It was my first time using a one-way and I was as quick as I was with my old car. My setup needs a bit of a tweak as it tends to 'hook' a bit in corners. Nothing some firmer strings wont fix.

I find the kit springs work the best... Try goin a firmer swaybar to solve your problem.

It will have online shopping soon apparently. I think it's run by EJ Evans so PM him or email ([email protected])and I'm sure he'll be able to sort you out.

As for parts, most of the breakable parts (suspension arms, hubs etc...) are all Cyclone/PRO4 parts so you can order them from most model shops.

Well not sure what hours I work next weekend for the Buildershow. It is the last weekend for me. If I work early I might stop down but I don't know my schedule yet.
