Jimmy had a problem when running the spool on his R3. On full lock it was binding, very noisy and scrubbing speed like nothing else. Havent noticed the same problem on my R2 but I dont use anywhere near full lock.

Its almost like the outputs of the spool are 3 maybe 4mm too long!!!! as the bones sit snuggly much further in.

Any ideas
Don't run a spool ...no seriously have him try Dave Berger's "SPLIF"... .. ...
on a side note who makes the spool he is using..?

3 if the answer for the previous question is positive, what parts do i need to change?

I have a R2 coming in. just want to know more about the car
thanks
I'm pretty sure your questions were asked by someone else and got an answer just a couple pages back, it's probably been answered 10 times in the last 50 pages

Can you post a pic of your R3 with the spool in and steering at full crank, nice and close on the cvd?

Wouldn't of thought the amount of steering would have a big effect on how far into the outdrive the cvd goes. I'd have looked more at the cvd binding at it's own joint but then that would also happen with a diff, maybe the diff action hides it though?

Nope.... One ways only 2 of them as a matter of fack on the R1 and R3 but this Years Reedy Race ... I"ll be forced to run a "SPLIF" ...which might make the car a bit easier to drive

Jimmy,

I had the same problem with my R2 - Check if you have too much ackerman or steering throw

Jimmy,

You'll need to reduce the steering throw a bit, and chattering is normal with a spool in just about all the cars on the market (SD, TRF415...etc.) remember, spools is a very unforgiving type of transmission components (it does not compensate for the different radius of that the inside and outside tires are traveling when going through a turn). We ran the spool at the reedy race this year, and on the bench the car chatters when the steering was cranked all the way, but on the track we didn't actually notice any chattering. Reason being, most of the time on the track you rarely crank your steering wheel all the way. Spools works best on wide open tracks where you rarely turn the car through tight angle turns, and/or when the traction is low and the one-way is difficult to control (for example, large parking lot type races).

We've also tried Yokomo SD parts (SD-415S or SD-415SG) which reduce the ackerman a bit and relieve some of the chattering.
