Hey Everyone with the Novak race around the corner has anyone been running there car at Trackside ?? If so what have they found the be the best setup and is there anything that you might have tested.. I have gone back to standard 1.1 hole pistons in the front of my car with 1.2 in the rear and think this might be better for the novak race.. I also will be trying to lengthen the front wheel base and see if that might make the car alittle easier to drive when the bite comes up... I have been running it all the way short.. I will keep you updated on how that works...


Mike

Hey Mike,

I havent been running at trackside, but the last race I went to with a lot of grip was with jack as the traction compound. I ran middle front wheelbase after running short for the longest time and it seemed to help in a lot of the high speed stuff since it didnt make the car just dig in right away. I still havent tried messing with pistons as much as you have though, I need to get some more so I can drill them out :P

Korey... That is what i was thinking about the wheelbase also... Good to hear.. Yea i have found the fine tuning the pistons is pretty fun and i am learning alot by trying different stuff all the time....

Thanks for the input...

Mike

I have a corally phi and I am having a hard time getting the diffs to come out smoothly as they should. Lately, I have been running the diffs without the o rings. Any advice to whats going wrong? thanks, sam

I am using nexus pro lite diff grease and IRS diff balls. The thrust balls are the stock corally ones.

Thats really odd, because mine came out like butter... With or without the orings. Thrust bearing is installed and everything correct?

Talking about ball diffs, how do you guys keep the diff ring on the groove side of the outdrives when putting it together. I just got a front diff but having a hell of a time to put it together. My diff ring won't sit properly and sometimes the balls just fall off.
Any tips on building the diff?

put a dab of grease on the ring it will then stick to the diff half
