Default Hiro Factory Carbon Driveshaft

Has anyone used the Hiro driveshaft yet? Any problems? I'm thinking about switching because of the Yoke carbon shaft twisting in stock class.... Thanks guys

haven't tried or even heard of the Hiro driveshaft but I've been using the Tobee lightweight aluminum one in mod with no problems at all. It's almost as light as the yokomo graphite one but much more durable.

I have to shim different than the instruction. The major problem is that the bearing that hold the small gear. You must install that first before installing the shaft.

If you have a chance, try to use ceramic bearings instead in the drivetain. You will increase performance but it is very expensive.

I use Shooters center shaft. Hiro's shaft, is it dark blue and graphite in the middle. If it is, you can buy the Shooters because it is the same. Shooters will also come out the upper deck mount that is very similar to EVO 3 Surikarn for the SD. They will release this mount very soon.

Yok's orginal shaft 11~13 grams
Tobee or Project D 7~9 grams
Shooters 6 grams

Speaking of Hiro Factory, does anyone have a picture of the Hiro Factory heat-sinked motor plate/mount?

From HK, Control Centre is the name of the store.

Shooters is making some items and export to Japan. The Center Shaft is around US20.00

Default Ceramic Bearings

Hello all,

I have just purchased some ceramic bearings for the input shaft assembly and the diffs. When they arrive how should i clean and lube them? As they are so expensive i don't really fancy taking the shields out as i never seem to get them back in properly Also will there be a marked improvement over the standard bearings?

Thanks for your help

Chris

chrissy c,go to acer racings website and they do oil just for ceramic bearings.do not remove the shields or clean with deagreaser.if u want to clean them just get some airduster and blow them out then re lubricate with the special oil.

i wud not recomend it.use the proper stuff.these are high performance bearings and take a lot of pressure.
it will be like running a v12 engine with some super market oil for abot 50p a litter!use the proper oil then they will last and have high performance

I noticed the SSG SD comes with washers to change the kickup, however, some are notched and others are not. What is the difference?

munrath they are actually the same size but the notched ones are more than likely so you can tell by looking what extra amount of caster you put in the car. I used calipers on both ones you are talking about when I built my car. Both were the same so I took it as you can just look for the notch to see what extra caster or pro squat you added.
