Thanks RCMarket!

jo90, would that really work if you would just throw in some thrust balls between the thrust rings? wouldn't they all mix up and 'follow a different path', if you know what I mean? In other words, just throw away the thrust cage and that would do the job? ofcourse replace the balls with carbide or ceramic....but still.

Thats all most thrust races are

No porblems at all

Govert. Yep it works fine. The thing is though there is no track as such, the actually balls will not run out the washers as they are held in place by the diff outdrive itself. they all fit snug in between the washers, but with enough slack to allow movement which is what you want. Both I and Natahn have been running like this for a few meets and it has worked perfectly, the diff has given excellent longevity and stay smoothes for ages. I will hopefuly be getting feed back though from my team manager on the thrust race though soon.

Just make sure to you put plenty of black grease on the balls and plates - and away you go !

Thanks for the tip! You're right about the fact the balls will stay in the outdrive. One last question I forgot; should I still roughen up the thrust rings by sanding them? Let's see what happens after the change.

Dont do anything with the plates, and to be honest the best thrust race we have found to be at the min is the Tamyia one piece one. Pack it fully with a good grease and you cant go wrong. We have tested a lot of differant combos latley and found this to be the most consistant.

Hope this helps.

Default Spur

Is anyone running a 78-81 Spur gear? Will it fit or is it to small, running around a 30 pinion. (64pitch)
