Follow up question, can scales be used to adjust chassis tweak? Or is the quarter method used for that?

Quarters will be the most accurate and easiest IMO. Too many factors going on to determine the accuracy of scales. Is your table flat, are the scales on anything absorbing, is the air blowing, etc.

nice use of leaf springs.



Doesn't look like it offers any rear steering and caster looks like it'll require a few parts to be changed out for adjustment, those shims can only adjust so much.

Interesting that the wing is chassis mounted, but also seems to rest on the rear pod, on a bearing.

The side springs are torsion springs riding on the bearing.

I tried but I'm a rookie with the scales so I'm sure I did something wrong. I went back to balancing with two wrenches and then setting tweek with a couple of nickles. I'd love to know if someone's using a scale with success though.

I'm a fan of the nickel/quarter method, too many factors come into effect when using scales. We have 3 different sets of scales at my track and every single one of them read different numbers.

Right, that's pretty cool too, but this was the part that intrigued me:

EA has some as well, might pick a pair up sometime before NATS. Should work for TC and F1

As there is no side link, you need something to constraint the horizontal rotation of the pod. It seems that to do that, he used a captive bearing in a printed part.

Fenix F1 Gear Diff get an evolution.





It's amazing to me.
Was a great step for my company and it was 2016....
Still one of Fenix strongest point.

But it was the right time for an improvement.
Side and spider gear are retained and are the same you'll find on all our Gear Diff line, this means that those can hold a 4.5 in 2S, as we use them in 235 pancar.

New is the axle, which now full 1/4” axle, in Gr.5 Titanium (soon also in carbon fibre)
Spur gear is fully faced so the pinion working area is double when compared with normal spurs
And the whole assembly runs on 3 1/4"x3/8" bearings.

Yes... still not sealed...
