As far as I know there aren't any lighter oneway units except the new center oneway that hollows out the layshaft. At least that is what I was told it woudl be.
Sorry about not answering your ???

As far as I know, there isn't anything lighter than the OEM multi-diff. However, it is a misconception that it is heavier, in one-way config, than a ball diff.

You can lighten it up an extra gram by using titanium screws to mount the pulley on.

Keep in mind that the layshaft one-way will be heavier than the solid layshaft, given that it has aluminum pulleys and one-way bearings.

silly question for those running the 26mm Jaco Wrap tires... what diameter would you start them at for club racing, and also for larger events?

Anyone out there using a KO 2413 servo? It dosen't look like the servo arm/horn will work with that servo. When the arm passes over the body of the servo it will rub the top of the servo case. Am I doing something wrong or do I need to use a different arm with that servo? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks...Greg

Turbonium, in the RC ONroad subforum there was a recent thread titled something like 'foam tires for dummies.' In this thread someone got into those most detail I've seen regarding wraps and using them, including diameters.

Hey Greg,
I use the KO servo. I too had the servo arm rub on the servo case.
I got the linkage as straight up and down from the servo arm, it still had a minor rub. I tried with a 1mm shim behind the servo horn, but it seemed that it wouldn't hold if I took a major hit, so I took out my dremel and just sanded off a little bit of that nub on the servo horn to just let the servo horn not rub.
I hope this makes sence.
-Shookie <><
Get the linkage as straight 90* as possible first as this going to make sure your throws are equal.

Mr. Shookie

Just so I understand did you use the black horn (k) that is supplied with the kit or the white horn that you get with the servo? If you used the black horn (k) when you dremeled the nub did you also have to dremel some off the ball stud so it wouldn't rub too?

Thanks...Greg

how are you able to measure 57.7? are you using a digital tire truer (if so what brand and model) and the same for droop and ride height, some people use 1/4 increments. where can i find a ride height gage that measures in 1/4 increments?

Measure with a calipre...and make fine adjustments with the truer until you reach the set point you're looking for...keep checking with calipre in between cuts...

The Hudy one goes to .5 - never seen one down to .25's.

You could quite easily eye ball the Hudy to a .25 of a mm with those markings though.
