Default S400 front diff

Has anyone tried a tamiya front diff in the S400? Does it fit?

You have one to sell??

2nd question... Are they planning to change the steering blocks so they can fit and clear foam tires?? Cutting down the width on foams will get quite tiresome. Anything in the works??

Shameful plug, but true nonetheless...The Parma rims normally are a hair thinner than Jaco's and may clear without cutting the steering blocks. At least that was the case when we had the same issue with the T2.

The only other option is to insert a .5mm shim inside the rim hex to space them out some, and then readjust your track width at the arms if needed.

did that also, but .5 doesn't cut it. You need 1.5mm of shims to make it clear and at that point the wheel is barely held at the hex.

I've tried the One way in tarmac track and i've lost a lot of steering..

I've used the Hot bodies One way.. with a little bit mod..

Front spool it's much better

Welp, had Yokomo overnight a Bd-640T One-Way and it fits! You just have to drill out your holes on the pulley to fit the existing mounting positions. Other than that and a few shims, works perfect! Thanks.
