1. Cut off the end that goes to the diff right at the ridge that holds the bearing, see pic.
2. Grind it flat with the ridge
3. insert pins into the slot for the dogbone
4. put bearings on to hold in the pin
5. install as normal
I ran out of drive cups and didn't really want to buy a new spool so I dug around my box and tried every outdrive I could find and the inner diameter of these, the length, everything is a perfect fit. There will be a slight bit of play with the pin and the dog bone slot but it isn't a big deal. I havn't had a chance to try this yet but I don't see any reason why they won't hold up, but before anybody goes out and buys outdrives to do this I'll be trying it out and I'll report back.
Good guide, i will mostly be doing that on a lathe tomorrow. Thanks

Not sure if it was answered yet, but they were Blue/Front and Yellow/Rear.

Yeh, certainly not a "typical" Rheinard setup as everything is "Tamiyafied." But, if he raced at the Japanese Tamiya event or something like that, then its believable I suppose.

Arrhh, Thank you Sir.

Yes, I agree Simon, It doesn't look like a typical Rheinard setup. I think he was probably given a base setup by Satoshi or someone and he has just run that or only made fine adjustments.

I heard that he ususally get his base setup from Kiyo Suzuki and other teammates. Marc usually have a mechanic that does the setup for him.

Actually I have a driver that goes down that hole...But I got this driver years back when I started RC-ing...Think its gone the way of the DoDo bird.

After looking at it I also agree
I never seen any of the top setups run the FT shocks that way and such less droop for rubber.........

The setup isn't typical Rheinard as the track conditions weren't very typical. The setup sheet is exactly what they have raced at the jap. nationals.(I've asked Marc last week) But before trying that at your lokal track keep in mind: The track temperature was 10 C and they used Sorex 32R. They heated the tyres until 30 sec. before the start. Runtime was 8 min with 11turns. I don't think it will work well in other conditions. The springs were blue/front and yellow/rear.

My Hudy fits. Should try this 1.5. They are pretty strong too.

Brandbrainz: nice art work, too bad I'm no longer living in Bayern.

I'm sure he is very busy, but perhaps you can convince Mark to come on RCTech and help us Tamiya fans from time to time. Is there a site in which he makes himself available to answer questions. I'll just have to brush up on my Bavarian...

Danke!
