nothing new here, it's starting to get cold. I might try some of those Ti CVd's in the spring when the outdoor tracks open back up here.

I've checked my shaft each time I've rebuilt my transmission and it seems to be as solid as when it was new.

I don't know if it made a difference or not, but before I installed my Yokomo graphite shaft, I applied a coat of the thin CA. The CA actually seemed to soak into the fibers of the shaft. I then used a very fine sand paper to smooth the surface of the shaft which became a little rough.

I weighed the shaft afterwards and it was 1 gram less in weight than the aluminum shaft that came with my kit. I didn't think to weigh the graphite shaft before applying the CA.

If I can locate a source for the Bomber shaft I'll give it a try for comparrisons sake.

The CA probably did the trick. I think speedtech is the only source in the states for the team bomber shaft, you can try the overseas online stores, they might have one.

I don't know the rate on the RS white springs, I don't have my chart on this computer. For rubber tire carpet racing I usually set my droop to 7 in front and 5 in the rear (using the droop gauge). For camber I usually ran 1 deg up front and 1/2 in the rear.

Is there a Center One way for the SD, I know there are one's for the TC3.... The front one way works great on my track but it's too hard on axels....

Matt,
Any luck on Billy's setup?

Does anyone know why Yokomo and Rayspeed springs are way to soft compared to a Associated or Xray Springs, which can are rated up to 40 lb?

i believe these are mostly meant for pavement, i think most guys use either the yokomo gas car springs or the assoc springs for carpet.

Default roll out......

I have a cgm and run stock with rubber on a fairly tight technical track. What would be a good starting point spur/pinion combo for this? (64p) What is the ideal amp draw I should shoot for? Rollout? Thanks in advance, 'blade

I'm assuming you're runnning a monster stock motor, for that on a tight track I would start my gearing at a 7.5 overall ratio. A 100 spur and 31 pinion will give you a 7.59 ratio. I have no idea what kind of amp draw you should be looking for, sorry.
