Wow... sounds like your car took a beating. If the outdrives are split you can actually still reuse them if you get the Yokomo outdrive savers. Also you might want to check with speedy-932 if you are looking for aluminum outdrives. He made a few.

hey you can run a 68 spur all the way to 75 with no mods standard from the factory on the R2s
and in pinion from 14 teeth to 42 teeth
thats what the maunel has got in it

It is true that the delrin outdrives are a bit delicate, however to change 3 in one day is bit too much One guy locally was experiencing such problems when he used the short aluminium dogbones front and the longer ones at the back. It is very important that the longer ones are installed in front section. Just something to check out

I suggest you use super glue to cover the edges of both front and rear shock towers. At the same time, you will also be making them slightly stronger

Or maybe you simply have to train bit more ey. Otherwise you seem to be doing fine. Keep it up

We brought a couple of Speedtechrc spools in Malta too. They work great, especially for stock racing

I will try to post a picture of the spools we are making locally too. They come slightly more expensive, but are more durable especially for modified racing

Yes the same gears of the one-way are used on any locked diff we use, whether those from speedtechrc or the ones we make locally

I broek outdrives as well. The closed off ends on the outdrives cause that problem. Like RC Monk said order some of those Yoke Outdrive savers. I used them and they did help out. Not too expensive either. Sounds like the car took a few lumps but also sounds like it worked pretty well for you overall.

The car is very cool and I do miss mine sometimes. Oh well that is just the way it is. Can always buy another one if I get that feeling again.

Yeah I will say if I was going to get another one and it wasn't new I would be giving you a shout out!!!!! You have some of the best around.

Hows the TC4 coming along now? Any other new cars that you been thinking of getting? Ever have any experiance with the RCLabs cars at all? Always thought they were pretty cool looking and a different design than most other cars.

Thanks for the tips guys... I'll have to check and see what bones are in it... I don't just split them... I take chunks out of them!!
How are the aluminum diff halves holding up? How much are they??
A buddy of mine has a cnc machine shop and I was thinking about having me make me a few sets, thought maybe make several sets, but I don't want to infringe on someone elses niche...

Delrin Outdrives ...

If you put the short dogbones up front, the outdrives will inevitably break very easily. I know one guy that even broke an outdrive on acceleration from dead stop, without hitting anything

Make sure you have the long ones infront (as indicated in the manual) and you should not have any particular problems
