Hey guys I just picked up a TC5R and am having a very hard time trying to get the diff's to tighten up. Its like the trust screw is too short or somthing. I was just wondering if any of you guys had any similar problems or maybe im just doing somthing wrong? Any help or advice would be great. Any yes I have compressed the diff spring and all that kind of stuff.

Hi!

Have you push lock nut into plastic part to the end ?

I have alu diffs made from plastic version (foam kit), I only replace outdrives for alu one and I don't have this problem :-)

I don't have oryginal diff set from tc5r, maybe from foam kit screw is longer then R version.

Regards,
m.

Default TC5 diff screw

The good news is - you're not the first to have this problem.
First make sure that the nut is fully pressed into the black plastic T-nut.

Next, you need a bar of a size to go in the slot and press against the T-nut.
You then need enormous force to press down on the driver to compress the spring enough to start the thread. The bar stops the T-nut from moving.
I hold the bar in a vice and use my whole weight to press down.
And your problems aren't over yet.
Be VERY careful when you tighten the nut to set the diff adjustment.
It will strip the thread very easily. Make sure you have a spare nut to hand.

Someone advised that I use Associated part #6575 T-Nut & Diff Bolt and I did. With this part the diff went together without any problems or frustrations. It is a simple fix for anyone that is having trouble putting the diff together.

Will a motor run cooler with 64 pitch vs 48? What's the advantage of 64

the biggest diffrence is that u can find more intricate gearing the gear value of 48 changes alot just by adding one tooth

if your a stock racer like me and keep eating 88t 64p gears for no reason at all, it is very hard to find a pinion being somewhere like a 39t (what im running) and a small spur in 48p because generally it isnt needed. apparently 64p is smoother but quieter.

would anyone know why i keep eating spurs? i had paul lemieux mesh the gear for me and it still go eaten up, along with a few other people because i thought it was me. i changed pinion gears too incase that may have been a factor too along with the spur gear hub. its kinda funky for this to happen.

I chewed up a couple because the mesh was too loose, but mostly its when I hit something hard enought to move the motor.

When I got my TC5R used from a buddy of mine they had some spur gear problems. The topshaft had some side to side play in it and that is whey they kept chewing up spur gears. Check to make sure you top don't have any excess play in it. I know my car has zero slop in it.

Another problem I hactually have when messing my gears is my motor mount is worn from the motor screws and gets dented up and then when you try to tighten up the motor it moves around while tightening since the motor mount is screw holes get a little chewed up. Nice thing is the motor mount is really cheap.

make sure the nut is all the way in and you either make one of this tool or buy one I'm not sure if they still make it instead of using allenwrenches I made one myself to make my life lee miserable when rebuilding my diffs.

GOODLUCK!!!
