Help, broken screws!

Guys,

Have anyone ever experienced broken a Diff Adjusting screw?

I did that twice (Front) within 1 week.

Any thoughts?

I was running EPIC 8x1, carpet indoor track.

Is there such a thing as too much power?

komkit, the diff screws are prone to breaking if the diff is overtightened. Try running the diff a little looser and make sure you put a lot of black greese on the thrust assembly so that it stays lubricated. If the thrust dries out, the extra friction can weeken the screw and make it snap too.

No, it's snaped right in the middle of the run.

Okay, I'll try to back off the diff a tad.

The thrust bearing were fine when I replaced the screw both times. But I'll keep an eyes on it.

I just got my car, finished putting it together at the track ran one battery. Looked pretty cool. The steering was more responsive then my old TC3.

What are your guys thoughts on running AE springs?

TC3 springs will fit. just make sure you change the ballends and spring cups to the same ones used on the TC3. TC3 springs are longer compared to the Yok.

There are setup sheets included with the kit. You can go to the Yokomousa site or look through this thread for more.

As far as assembly:

0. Optional: Remove the packed grease from all the bearings and relube with light oil.

1. You might need to use the long shock ends for the front to get proper ride height depending on if you are running foam or rubber.

2. Make sure you push the input shaft all the way into the bevel gear and use the proper shims or the diff cover may bind the gears.

3. Break-in the drivetrain by running a motor with a small pinion with a 4-cell or 5V for about 2-3 hours.
