Back to my earlier question (it might be on the last page) I think the problem was that I was running a spacer under the steering knuckle. This brings the wheel closer to the arm, hence the occasional rubbing problem. Does anyone else who runs the lower front hub carrier hole put the spacer on top of the knuckle instead?

I think the majority of people run the lower hole in the castor block and put the spacer on top of the steering knuckle, I do and I believe Mo does as well.

I also run mine in the lower hole with the spacer in the caster block. Have not had it rub unless I run Proline 28mm wide foams.

Matt I'm thinking of ordering two of those Yoke chargers. Seems like yours work well for you. I guess I need to sell my Reedy Quasars.

instead of ordering two of the single chargers Yokomo makes a BCS Double charger, it basically has two chargers in one case. You can check it out on www.yokomousa.com in the electronics section.

What handling characteristic are you finding when you run that lower hole in the Castor Block? Always have run mine in the upper hole and am interested in hearing some thoughts on it....

THanks

Jeff

Since most people are using the rear tower up front, I think a slightly modified setup sheet is in order. I also added a track layout area (Tight v. Open) as this could change variables as well. I just think it would be easier for everyone to share their setups this way.

What do you guys think?

Thx for the set-up sheet. I like this one better.

Default Gears

Hey guys, I have some 64 pitch gears left over from my SD that I dont have any use for, I have a Yokomo Precision (xenon) 104 tooth spur, and Yokomo Precision 31, 32, 34, 35, and 36 tooth pinions. Only the 32 and 34 tooth pinions were opened (run a couple times each) and the spur is brand new as well. I dont need em, so PM me if you want em, I'll give a good price on em.

Default Rear input shaft

Can anyone give a technique as to how to properly seat the pin that connects the rear inout shaft to the spur gear holder? Should I push the input shaft all the way in so when you look into the hole of the spur gear holder the pin doesn't show? I have been having problems with this because my rear diff has a little play when I rotate it. Souldn't the rear diff sit in properly in the gear box without play?

Thanks in advance for your help guys.

When installing the spur adapter onto the rear input shaft, the adapter should slide back far enough so that very little of the pin is visible through the hole which is in it. Basically, slide the adapter as far back as it will go.

I've noticed also that with two diff outdrive shims the diff still has some play. I believe this is part of the design of the car to insure a free drivetrain, but I am not totally sure.

There should be a tiny bit of play, otherwise you'd be putting pressure on the bearings, causing them to run offcenter. That will cause them to bind up a hair, and eventually blow out.
