Everytime I have run double 1 ways on belt cars it seems to take a little aggressiveness out of the steering. I dont see why it would be any different on a shaft car, but it is a good tuning aid if you want to smooth out the steering.

What about running the one way shaft with a spool? Could it add the advantages of both?

Doesn anyone know if this is available somewhere on the net?

BTW, Thanks Randy!

I tested the LCG in mod this weekend on asphalt. The car handled good but the driver didn't worked. 1 pack for training, 3 heats and 3 finals... That's too less for me for completely new track... I ended 7th overall...
In 3 weeks another race take place at this track and I will try it again...

Cheers
Chris

Nope just rear/rear for now.
I am going to run some more test next week. I need a break and I need to start preparing my BD for the Ko Propo Grand Prix in few weeks. The LCG has some testign yet to be completed but so far it has done better than I could have expected.
Truly a world class car.

Not so much desroying. But yes I had a rock get in the rear diff and caused some trouble, but I am either makign my own covers (out of lexan) or seeing if I can Modify this to work.

We willhave to wait and see.
One thing though the track had loose pebbels so I was askign for trouble. No not really. it was a fluke thing and I had it fixed in about 3 minutes. Bevel gear is plastic and rign gear is grafite, the plastic and cheap bevel gear takes the beating and leaves the ring gear in tacked. I ahve like five extra bevels anyway so really it isn't that common of a thing to happen, especially when running a very well groomed track. The one I was running on is do for a re-asphalting...Hopefully soon.

@agower: I had a little trouble with shimming my diffs correctly. I had to reshim the diff after a few packs with a mod motor.

Now I'm using:

Front
one-way:
one shim on each side
bevel gear:
no shim

Rear:
diff:
one shim on each side
bevel gear:
4 shims

Cheers
Chris

hurley081182:

well.. yeah... LCG is suppose be better then the rayspeed kit.
lower center gravity, more blue color(bulk head anyone ) and more.
did i just say that.. even mine is till on back order

but by how much... depends on your wallet...
a conversion kit cost almost as same as a new car kit.
my RS is doing me pretty good so far...
but my wallet couldnt take the bang till this month!

*so you still up to buying my NIB RS kit?*

thanks,

are they the standard shims?
are you using graphite gears?

also
i am having trouble getting the rear smooth, it clicks (not outloud) you can just feel it when you turn it by hand but you can hear the binding if you spin it fast) at a certain point but not each time the gear goes round though like every 1 and a hlaf times it goes round. also the gear wobbles which is more than likely causing it. so how can i stop the wobble i have tried rebuilding the diff and have used a new gear but stil just as bad?

any help

I have the same problem with my SDW

I m hoping that with a new graphite gear (better fit and finish) and some carbide ball its going to disapear

Make sure when you tighten the diff to do it progressevely, dont tighten it in 1 go, turn the diff a few times then carry on tightening it till its like you want

This will help to avoid building your diff out of round

Forgot: Shim your diff in order to have your gear a little more away from the bevel gear, the whole diff should have some play
