Chris- I've been running carpet every now and then, but can't wait til asphalt starts up and I can quit getting high off the paragon! The c4.1 would be pretty neat shaft drive. I like pivot balls, but agree they are alot of unsprung weight. I've used that white lightning and some newer formulas like it, but my tc3 drivetrains were always the free-est without any lube. The tc3 is the best carpet stock car just cause of the shaft, you can't argue with that!

I've never had an outdrive or dogbone get worn out. I've ran off-road, on-road, carpet, nitro, and they just don't wear on any of my cars. So I definitely would not use lube on them... I've got some of those boots too, but unless your running in the mud, they will just add drag.

bubbaicm;

I've looked for the "White Lighting" but haven't been able to find it. I found some DRY spray lubricant at Home Depot that works very well on plastic. The Radio Shack pen oiler is good for the outdrives. They were out of it last time so I bought a spray Teflon lube but it is a little harder to control the amount so it's messier. I won't run my cars without it.

I wonder how well the Silicone/Teflon grease would work in ball diffs over time. I've always read not to subsitute the silicone grease that lubes the diff balls because of the reasons stated in a previous post.

hey jeff,

good to hear you haven't hung it up for the winter. and yes, the shaft drive tears up the tight carpet scene. i think most of the guys here run the gears dry as well. i've also heard of the wax style chain lube working well. i am still deciding whether or not to enclose the drivetrain. it'll add weight and inhibit diff accessability. furthermore, i've got a plan to use only two bearings on the main shaft to reduce drag and overall weight. this design would allow for zero front/back chassis flex or gear mesh would be affected. get the picture?

and i'm thinking that if there was an optimum place for pivot ball suspension, it would be on carpet. reason being that the tracks are relatively smooth and the carpet can damp out most high frequency oscillations that bring irritations to suspensions that suffer from high unsprung weight. what do ya think?

we'll see. i will hardly have time for racing, let alone a hybrid car.
later,

chris.

Popsracer : I believe you can find White Lightning in most mountain bike shops.
Hope it helps

Default White Lighting Moonshine

Thanks,

When I run out of the dry spray lube, I'll check in some other shops for the White Lighting.
