You need to dremel the end slightly if you're using the silver universals from the old belt drive car.

Oh and yes I'll probably get the new belt car too (always been better with belt drive).
6 or 7mm hole.

How do you correctly measure droop on this car (CGM) , where the caster block is the lowest or on the edge of the arm??
thanks
Johnny

Lowest position of the caster block is the point for measuring droop.

I'm probably giving SDW up and try TRF415.. Only because i can't get the car right on carpet and rubbers.. Just can't get the real grip.. Don't tell me i have'nt tried to set it up.. i've got some real good help from my sponsor to get it working..

That's too bad, I think the CGM is much better on carpet than a flat chassis. It is much stiffer than a flat graphite chassis. Hope you save your SDW for outdoors.

Im having a hard time getting my rear transmission to be free using the pin in the spur adapter, it seems like the pin limits the ability to shim the rear input shaft. Without the pin, the tranny spins like butter, Is it ok to run the car without the spur adapter pin?
thanks
Johnny

No, the pin keeps everything in place. Even though you have a set screw, it could loosen and then you will have more problems. The pin should go in without any effort. Maybe you have a bearing not completely seated in the tranny case? This happened to me once. Tried to force it and wrecked the seal on the bearing. This caused the bearing to drag. Just check those bearings again. Hope this helps.

if you could run the car without the adapter pin (??); then its not the same pin you are saying...

you could run without the set screw on the adapter...

No i have the set screw holding the adapter to the input shaft, and im not using the pin, it doesnt even look like the pin will fit anyways as the holes dont line up, Im just wondering if the Set Screw could hold the adapter on during a race.
THanks

the pin is first inserted and then adjusted to the correct mesh & drive shaft coupler can be pinned.

its not a good idea to run with just a set screw, because if tighted hard/firm it will distort the adaptor...

There's a bunch of setups posted on www.yokomo.tk Tosolini's carpet nats setup seems to be the one most people like for foam carpet racing.
