Default Pin (10mm) getting loose in T2 drive axle (front transmission)

Hello

Can someone help me with the following problem?

I'm driving a T2'009 EU-version with a one-way axle (instead of a spool). The pin (10mm) in the T2 drive axle (front) is getting loose while driving. I've followed the instructions meaning that I did the greasing of the T2 drive shaft coupling and the drive shaft 52 mm, and thread locking the hex screw SB M3x2.5.

Although the hex screw is still tight, the pin gets out of the T2 drive axle at one end, hitting the composite steering block. And because of this the T2 drive axle doesn't work like it should (because the pin is sticking out the drive axle on one side).

I hope you understand what I'm trying to tell...

If you crank the screw down tight enough it should stay. If you can't get it tight enough you have two choices.

1. Cut a notch in the pin so the grub screw can sit in the notch to keep it from moving. Kind of like notch in the pin that holds on your C-Hubs.

2. Heat shrink the ends of the axels.

Default Xray T2 009 inner ackermann question

I have the Eu spec 009, in the instruction book it says build with the notch in the top deck and chassis facing forward, what difference will it make having it face the rear ????

I had this same problem with my 09 nd the solution was to contact rcamerica and get the proper length pin.

This exact same thing happened to me. Every run the pin in the cvd would come out. It seemed the grub screw wasn't gripping the pin hard enough . I rebuilt it a few times making sure i thread locked it but the same thing kept happening. So i took both front cvd's and tried switching the grub screws and sure enough it worked. Must of been a small machining issue i guess. But now all is well. On the upside, all my friends running other brands were having all kinds of other issues, so to me this was a minor issue with an easy fix. These are great cars overall.

I can vouch for Dodgeguy's car. He sits right next to me in the pits and is very maticulous about his stuff. He's selling as he has a new T3. You won't find one better!

Can anyone tell me if they see a difference in the way the car drives with the 38tooth pullies? I am running 17.5 rubber, I am using 34 tooth pullies now, just wondering if its something to try.

The 38/20 conversion smooths out the transitions in handling between on and off power.

Overall it makes the car drive more consistant to me.

Steve...

what pinion and spur are you running in your car for 13.5 ? I sold my tamiya and got a new xray.

Gentlemen.....
And Mr, Weiss.


Is there any reason that the t3 setups wouldn't be transferrable to the 009?

And if there is how exactly.?

Dave.
