thanks
I normally use a 112. You have to fill the rear mid deck a bit to allow clearence when changing to this spur. Its also good to file and angle on the lower deck so it isn't too close to the deck. That way rocks don't get caught.


Has anyone tried the tamiya ti axles before? How do they hold up?

Also... Anyone know how long acer racing takes to send out orders? I ordered a kit for my 415 a few days ago... would like to know if it will be here soon.

As far as wearing out diffs...

Have any of you tried greasing the dogbone pins? I use the AE black grease, which is fairly slippery. It allows the dogbone pin to slip against, instead of notch, the outdrive, while also preventing it from heating up (in which case it wears even faster).

It is my experience that black grease works better than the Tamiya AW grease, because the AW grease is too sticky and does not allow the pin to slip. I re-grease the pins fairly often, about every 4 or so runs; this does not require dissasembly.

Lol...I run my outdrives (front/rear) dry It doesn't attract dirt like a magnet BUT wears a tad bit quicker.

Wanna know a little universal something something? Go to a motorcycle shop and pick up Maxima chainlube spray. Build your universals dry using blue loctite on the set screw. Hang the universals by taping them to a corner of your table. Fill the axle "cups" with Maxima and let dry (couple hours). When dry, you can use motor spray on a rag to clean up the excess residue off of the axle and bone. Work the universal so that it doesn't feel too bindy; some bind is okay but not like stuck bind hehehe. Works grrrrrreat! and does not attract gunk like other stuff.

Psst...Mark/John, do you think the we'll be able to sneak in some timed practice runs this weekend since the computer may be up for F1RL?

Have you tried the Evo 4 yet? That looks like it'll be just as fast as the Pro 4..

I just countersunk my shock towers, upper deck, and chassis braces, and I gotta say Im surprized that a few of these parts werent drilled straight. The upper deck has a little angle on it, which wont make any difference, but both of the braces were drilled crooked as well, which means one camber link will be longer than the other. Kinda disapointed in that, almost wish I had left them stock so you can just push it straight with the little slop you have in the screw hole.

There would be such little contact area on the rear bulkhead, and then the front top deck spacers would recess in the countersink a little bit, not gonna happen. F. D.
