Default Thanks guys

Thanks for the help guys. I sent an email to Hyperdrive asking for help and if they have any parts or manuals available.

As far as the spur gear, I used to run it on the right hand side. Dont know how it ended up on the left.

I still havent found any links, pics, docs, drawings, ect on this car. I really want to rebuild it from the ground up I hope I can.

Thanks again,
Chris

Well in or around '94-'96 the oval teams experimented with Left-side drive cars to get more weight shifted to the left. That's one of the reasons why Trinity came out with a reverse rotation Slot Machine 2... For the EV10SS LSD. But Hyperdrive and a couple other companies played around with it too

don't know if HD has any parts still lying around but shouldn't be that big a deal as most of the cars from that era had a lot of interchangable parts. looks like somebody used rc10 battery boxes, and rc10L front end pieces, both of which are still pretty easy to get if you look around. PM me if you need any help or advice

Yup, you're right, it's a gear.

That Hyperdrive car was designed to actualy use the Asc. battery cups, the pod should be able to mount on either side. Hyperdrive was using belts and pullys then instead of the traditional pinions and spur gears. They were awsome to watch and run, they were SILENT, all you could hear was tire scrub!! I might be able to locate my old instuctions for that car, and the belt drive I was running then. Ralph Burch Jr. was running for them then too, in fact I think I still owe him a couple belts he lent me
