Sparx, what are you running on your front axle (spool, diff, 1way), and what suspension type?

Hopefully there should be some pointers on the link in my sig.

Regards
Ed

Scott, sent you another email, buddy.
I'll see you at Reedy. Whether I'm in or not, I still bought the plane ticket!

Look for Corally blades. Only these will work with a Jürgen diff or spool.

Bah, sorry to forget that, Oneway - Old suspension. The current setup i'm running for 12T should work ok though. Just some small changes to that and i should be good to go

Default SPOOL by rcmaniax

in association with some top european drivers we have just designed an ultra light-weight spool for the tamiya 415. weight should be around 7.4 grams!

the aluminium spool will be blue coated. if there is an interest we'll produce a limited batch of these parts soon.

Aluminum spools will get chewed up very fast. Couple of runs, and you'll need a new one. Plus the inercia is smaller because of the lightness in weight, thus corner speed will be hindered.

At the worlds, a lot of the drivers who used spools, preferred steel ones for the corner speed.

I think M.Rheinardt used the TIR spool with drlrin outdrive. I's it very light.

Have to disagree there :

- the spool on the X-Rays are made of aluminium and are just fine. No one complains about corner speed or durability, so I guess it's just a matter of conception.

- Lighter is always better, especially in terms of drivetrain, as lowering the rotating masses will always increase acceleration.

- It's not the spool that gives corner speed, it's the inertia of a heavier drivetrain. The fact that at the worlds a lot of drivers prefered a heavier spool doesn't mean it will be the same on any other track. Usually a car that slows down quicker is better, that's why LRP has developped their "auto brake" function. Plus, I can give you ONE driver that used a very very light spool : Marc Rheinard was using the TiR spool with delrin outdrives, can you say he was slow ?

just my 2 cents though.
