What is the abbrv. for your tires on that setup sheet Kilruf? Are you running the 28mm tires...if so you ahve to cut the fronts to get them to fit correct??

I maybe running some carpet soon and would love to get Chris's Carpet Setup as well!

I know we would love to have Chris back at an event at Tulsa. Met him there and when we drove at an invite race...the reason I made the switch to the SD after seeing his SD...gave up my losi...lol

Good to see you on Tech.

Hey everyone, I just ran my car today with a one-way I just installed. I broke 2 axles from the one-way. I know there are hop-ups but I don't have any means of getting them. Is any one else have problems with breaking axles from a one-way. I also tried tightening the front diff to be like a fixed diff and I still got more cornor speed, but those are showing signs of bad wear. Has any one tried that with success.

I've run a spool in the past and the wear didn't seem that bad. Even if they do wear out in a couple weeks new diff halves are only a couple bucks

1 ways and spools can be hard on dogbones, the key is to stay off the boards, especially on power... If you are a fairly new driver, a diff will be a lot easier on you.

Jeff, like what James said... Purple/Orange Fronts with Purple Rears. And they are 28mm. You have 3 options to run them up front I think... 1. Trim the 28mm down to like 27mm or so til they clear. 2. Trim the steering knuckle arm til it clears (I think MO does that too.) or... 3. Shim the wheel out a tad til it clears (only problem with that is it might get out of the legal 190mm width and also be too wide for some bodies.)

On my setup, I run 1° toe-in the rear. But I use the Aluminium R0+2 rear block with 1° rear hubs reversed to get my 1° toe-in.

I might try running some copper or gold sway bars next week to see how they do. Plus I'd like to try some different pistons as well. Maybe some #3's.

Would going to a trailing knuckle solve the rubbing issue without removing material from the rim or block?

Yes the one way is hard on the axles, you should try to get the Square Ti or Tobee reinforced ones. I think speed tech rc has got them, ask Steve on this forum.
