Hi,
why won't the rdx one-way fit? guessing is it because of the size of the bearing? so will the older rdx diff fit in? i've got a few of those and was hoping to be able to use them.

The old diff wont be a problem. Same with the old spool. You are right about the 1-way however, different bearing sizes.

Just as a note, even though the cell slots are pre-bevelled, you will need to take a bit more off them the make it easier to get your cells in & out of the car as the battery side bulkhead is very low. Not really an issue however as the cells have some scope to sit lower in the chassis anyway.

does this mean a NEW one way is in the mists, or will it be a case of a new bearing holder?

Thanks

The CAD diagrams in the manual indicate that its a new 1-way assembly, which makes sense given there will be 3 - 4 different size pullies available. Cant see how a bearing holder big enough to accomodate the larger (read old) bearings would fit in the new bulkheads anyway.

The new one way is a lighter unit. The manual shows a photo and its a very small and simple design.

My Phi build has progressed from a box of bits to the attached. Parts finish is very good.

I have not installed the belt tensioner... it over tensions the belt in my opinion.

Can you use the RDX diffs in the PHI? From what I understand the PHI diffs are designed allot like a 1/12th scale diff. Although I have never raced 1/12th scale personally I have friends who do. And they say 1/12th scale diffs absorb allot of impact durring a crash and have to be rebuilt quite frequently. Is this going to to be a problem with the PHI?

We will tell you after this weekends racing, but i do not expect the diff to be an issue. The new diff appears (on the bench and on paper) to be alot better than the old one.

You can use the RDX diffs in the PHI. The PHI diffs are only like a 12th scale diff as it uses a 3 bearing system.
