I use the Team Tamale clamp on one. Works great and offers different fan mounting positions.

I believe Tamiya shock oil is rated in #, ie: #300, #400. While AE oil is in wt, like 45wt, ect.

Now my next question for y'all is:
I am gonna be running a stock motor in this MS, It comes with a 102t spur, What pinion size would I use? I realize it could change due to the track, but can you put me in the ballpark? Also, would it be better to switch to 48p instead?
Thanks in advance, Bob
If you have 48 pitch pinions, then it might be wise to switch. Otherwise throw that 102t Tamiya spur out the window. It is not 64p. its .04 module. Which means that 64p pinions won't fit perfectly on that spur.

If you leave your spur at 102t 64p, a 32t pinion would put you in the ballpark for a Monster Stock motor. Although you didn't make it clear what motor you were you using.

I told you at the track but you just didn't listen as usual. As for Lipo an 13.5 BL. You can get those but you'll still lose to my old skool Monster stock and 3300s.

I remember asking "What should I do to my car?", I don't remember getting a direct response. Oh well.

Like I have money to get those things. I'll try to use foam tires though.

Hi Guy's
Okay Guy's I need help from the Great MSX Gods again please.
I would love to know what is the difference between running a centre one-way and a direct centre one-way with a front one way.
Also on a smooth fast track with a one way up front which would work better.
And with a diff up front what would work better and with a spool which cente would work better.
God i hope I am making sense here with this question.
Thanks Guy's

Running both (centre and front) will make for a smoother car to drive. Effectively, the front belt won't spin off power (reducing drag), and you reduce the chance of any difference in the freeness of the bearings of the front one-way unit having an effect on the car.

If you run the direct centre unit, you'll have better throttle response, but you are relying on the front one-way unit to do all the work on turn-in, which can cause problems if the bearings are not close in freeness.

Personally, if I'm running a front one-way, I'll run the centre as well. I just prefer it that way.
For a Diff or Spool, I'd stick with a direct centre unit, simply as otherwise you loose the main advantage for running one of thoose options... braking ability.

When you have both the centre and front one-ways in, you get maximum turn-in from the car, plus maximum drive train efficiency, however brakes are practically non-existant - ie: you'll spin the rear round as soon as you touch them.

If you use a spool up front them you should always run the locked centre pulley. If you run a spool with the centre one-way pulley then you'll have no brakes, therefore losing all the advantage of running a spool in the first place.

If you run a diff up front you should also run the locked centre pulley - because at least you have brakes. If you run a front diff with a centre one-way then again you have no braking, plus you'll also have poor mid/exit corner steering.

In summary, my recommendations on combination are:

Front one-way with centre one-way : maximum turn in + efficiency + speed - no good if you need brakes or can't drive smoothly.

Front one-way with locked centre pulley: a bit less turn-in than above but otherwise similar. When I ran the MSX I always used both one-ways together.

Front spool with centre locked pulley : maximum mid/exit corner steering, strong brakes, but poor efficiency and hard on the drivetrain components.

Front diff with centre locked pulley: good brakes, easier to drive, but generally pretty poor steering everywhere - easiest on the car in terms of drivetrain wear.

Ok, I'm off to bed

One other thing please guy's, I also have a yokomo oneway joint that goes into the Tamiya oneway, it joins onto the other one on the other side making kind of a oneway spool locking both wheels together so if you spin one the other one spins with it. What is the advantage or disadvantage of using this unit in my one way please.
thank's Guy's.
