Guys, I need some help building my front diff.

I bought all the parts mentioned a few pages back.

When building the thrust bearing - how many small balls do you need and do you sandwich them between the two washers or just one washer the plastic?

Also, the Tamiya rear diff has a plastic part that contains the nut which the screw tightens, so when the screw moves, so does the nut and the plastic part. In this diff, there is no plastic, so surely the nut will just spin when you tighten the screw!

HELP !!!!!!!!!

if you look down inside the outdrives, one of them has a hex shaped recess in it to hold the nut...

and i think there were either 5 or 6 of the thrust balls... ill try to see if i can find the info.

We will see if he will dominate again.

I am really impressed with Marc. Good driver and seems like a nice guy. And even though I am currrenly running a Tamiya, I would like to see someone from Team Associated win the Worlds. I think they deserve one.

Default 415 foam/carpet setup

Hi Ng08,

I looked through my setup inventory and to my surprise I never wrote down any of my setups....

However they typically looked somthing like this.

Front:

Camber: -1.5 (sometimes -2 on side with most cornering)
Caster: 4 deg
Toe Out:0
Spring: Associated copper or purple
Shock Oil: 70w
Shock Piston:3
Shock Positionuter holes on tower and arm
Kick-Up: none - sometimes negative kickup.
Roll Center: low roll center
One way : none
Front Tire : Speedmind 35/55 multi compound





Rear:

Camber: -2
Toe In: -1.0
Spring: Associated copper or red
Shock Oil: 60w
Shock Piston:3
Shock Positionuter hole on tower and arm.
Anti-squat: none
Roll Center: low roll center
Rear Tire : Speedmind 35

For the low roll center I ran the blocks flat on the chassis and sometimes a 2mm spacer on the inside upper link on both front and rear.

that should be a good starting point...but will need to be tuned for each track as always.

Btw - Marc is very very quick and is certainly the real deal. He could take it!
