With the SD2 having to drill the 5mm hole for the rubber damper it weakens the spur considerably as they are cut out like Swiss cheese already and when running in modified I was destroying one every meet
You are probably better served with a different brand spur. Their pinions on the other hand are excellent.

Hi all,

I noticed there are other updates for the FFG system with the release of AM43-1 and AM44-1. How are they different from AM43 and AM44?

Oleg, do you plan to do other updated parts for the FFG?

Thanks in advance,
G-rem

Updated Raceberry chassis? Or new Awesomatix one
I suppose Freddy is using a central stiffner, I hope we will have more detailled pictures during the weekend



Speaking of updated parts, may I re-ask my questions ;-)

I have been running modified lately and stuffed up my gd1 diff. Crown gear loosen itselft and also internal plastic gears stripped. I still can't justify ordering gd2 diff so will try to fix my gd1 and also have another spare gd1. I remember before the spec-r internal carbon gears fits. Can anyone confirm this.

that is the raceberry v2.1 chassis -- just become available.
i suspect Oleg might be at the race ... so you're questions will have to wait.

i'd recommend you invest in the g05st and g06st gears instead. the spec-r gears as supposed to fit, but as you see you'll need to work on the shimming of the large gear to not have it strip out.

i've been getting some questions about the proper way to build up the FCB. i've just cracked open my first one and started documenting the build via instagram photos. you don't need instagram to see the pics, you can browse to them--

GD2 + Shepherd Gears

Just had a chance to build up 2 new GD2 with the Shepherd Gear set.

I was surprised how much fitting was needed to get a super smooth diff action.

Normally standard fare to smooth sand the backs of gears but this is what I needed to do to get the Shepherd to work well:
  • Removed the shims behind the small gears
  • Sand the backs of the small gears
  • Sand the fronts/backs of the big gears
  • Wire brush out the teeth of the big gears
  • Fill and bleed with the shock pump
It wasnt so much the work needed - just that it needed that much fitting. Havent had similar issue with Xray or Awesomatix gear sets.


Difference in experience?

An Awesomatix driven by Jamison Reichard takes podium on it's first race in a pack of XRays. He placed third in a battle that came down to the last turn.

Nice run Jamison. Debbies was one of my favorite tracks to visit while I was out there.

I thought of that after ordering some AM19 to try an outdoor setup.
I know it was already talk about but just to be certain on the top deck screws setting a white dot mean something screwed without any ST09 and a red dot no screw or something with a ST09 under?
Thanks!
Alexandre
Anyone?

All I had to do was not run the shims behind the large gears, no other work needed and they are plenty smooth

From the Shephard gear package - did you used the single big flat washer behind the big gear or the Xray part?

I used the washer from the Shephard package as it was washer for backing the ST31. The GD2 kit doesn't come with that washer.
