I noticed that in the stock setting(in the manual) i have to screw out downstop at 1.5mm in front and rear . i did that and I noticed the rear 1.5mm screw for downstop is so far away from the chassis because of the spacer in the suspension blocks. I want to try the setting of the manual but i think the 1.5mm will not work because its so far away from the chassis to work. Do any one here encountered this?

What are the benefits of the Delrin style outdrives?

they are lighter, put less strain (an wear) on your axles, less noisy, in a crash they can give way or break apart instead of other more expensive parts.... and they chatter less....

the downside, you have to make the bearing holders wider, but that's really a very small downside

Hey Guys,
I can't get one of my diffs to be ultra smooth anymore. I try new plates and diff balls and it still feels a little gritty/notchy. I'll be trying a different thrust bearing today, but is it possible for the actual diff pulley itself to go bad over time?

It's your thrust bearing. Unless your pulley melts from too much friction, you should be able to reuse it many times before you have to toss it. Unfortunately, Tamiya's thrust bearings aren't that great. I clean and relube them but they're never smooth again. I little grittiness isn't bad if it's still relatively smooth though.

Thrust bearing it was....

Now I need to order a few. Do you know of any other brands' thrust bearings that fit the Tamiya diffs??

You need to adjust the droop screw in relation to your ride height. The 3mm spacer under the "1XB" suspension mount is only to allow the rear belt to pass under the mount. If you look at the "1XB" mount, it is upside down. The spacer makes it level with the rear "1D" mount.

No...I wish I did. I'm surprised no third party has made one. Tamiya has the worst thrust bearing in the game. I'm gonna try to fit a yokomo. I believe the problem i had doing that before was the diff screw. I'll have to revisit it. I went a whole season with the Yokomo and never had to rebuild the diff once

hi ittjv, incase you want to get thrust bearing you might want to try Squat S192 Thrust Bearing 2x6mm (fits tamiya cars).
and here's the 16ball diff.. according to trf drivers this will provide a very smooth diff. haven't tried it thoughhttp://racingfactory.wordpress.com/2...l-trf415-diff/

I have no problems with the Tamiya thrust bearing, just make sure you pack in the black Moly grease.
