The TA04 outdrives are the 2 piece design, the same as the 414. I have an 414m2 also and haven't had any problems. What problems do you have with them?

they come apart

tamiya makes black outdrives that are one piece. I have a set for my 414 that i never got a chance to install. I never thought about trying them in the atlas...

here is a site that shows the black drives
http://www.tamiya.dk/rc/model/58288_sp.html

turns out i cant find the set i had. Do the tamiya drives bolt right together with the atals parts? Im thinking of ordering another set. The atlas outdrives i have are bout shot.

Of course i need to put another order into atlas. But if the tamiya outdrives drop right in, i might go that way as they are easier to get, and black

Those black outdrives are for the F201, I don't know if they will fit. The TA04 2 peice outdrives I have fit the Alas diff plates and appear to be the right length and diameter. I'll try them tonight and post the results.

not to be demanding, but i was planning on placing the order monday afternoon.

thanks for the help

the F201 I believe shares the same outdrives as the Ta04 and the 414series.

The Tamiya outdrives aren't as straight forward a fit as I'd hoped. They will need some machining to get them to fit as the bearing stop on one side is further out than the Atlas.

I'd hold off buying if I were you. I'll keep trying and let you know if I have any sucess.

I getting one of the YM34 T's off ebay. I was looking at Integy's site for parts and didn't find a YM8-101 complete diff. Anybody else know where to order parts? Does Controlcentre have Atlas parts? What other spares/tuning parts do you all recommend?

The low friction belts are supposed to be Aramid like tamiya's.

If you type in the part # on integy's "search" function, you will usually get the part's page, even if it doesn't show up normally. Some parts seem to not be displayed with the rest of the inventory...or I just can't find everything and i 'm going crazy

i just ordered the light blue springs, next stiffer from stock.
everything to rebuild a delrin diff. I'll make somebody a good deal on a used one, has some freeplay, i can take pix. I ordered the team low friction belts, and alum dogbones and alum swaybar holders, but both alum parts wont come

Default Atlas type T

Hi,

I'm thinking (seriously) of buying a type T as I fancy a change - I've messed about with TA04s/OB4 pro2/Tamiya Evo 2s and HPI pro 3's for a couple of years and never really been happy with them:

1. the slop/play I get on the TA04s
2. the ball/cup thing on the OB4 and it just never handled well!
3. stripping spur gears and the evo2 never seems to track straight.
4. The Pro 3's gone well but I only have a stock model and don't really want to invest in carbon/alloy when the car is 2 years old.

The questions I have are:

a) Do you think spare support will be ok for the Type T?
b) Can you recommend a 2 way diff to replace the kit one way?
c) Does the car track straight and hold up after a small knock?
d) Does it work well with foams on carpet?
e) What 'hop-ups' would you recommend for the Type T?
f) What shell would you run on carpet?
g) What springs do you get with the kit and which other makes fit?

Sorry to ask so many questions!!!

Thanks
