sorry but I gotta ask this

how many runs did you do on those diff outdrives and have they EVER seen any jointgrease like the one from muchmore, or tamiya AW grease or similar????

I can use my diff outdrives for 2 months with racing 3 days a week with modified and they still don't show any wear if you regrease them every 2 to 3 runs ...

for you even filing them to make blades fit won't work anymore as they have worn far too much ...

anyone know if a TC4 shock piston can fit into BD5???
on, only yokomo pistons fit, the shockbody does have a different inner diameter


@all:

for the steering slop:

remove the 0.3mm shim between steering plate and steering plate holdes and replace it with a 0.1mm shim, put some ca into the holes of the steering plate where the flanged bearing goes in but let it dry before pushing in the bearing
this way you can take it apart if necessary
additionally:
put some (very small amount) ca on the steering posts, where the bearings of the steering plate holder are later, but first do the lower bearing, let the CA dry, push the bearing on, then put some ca on the area where the upper bearing will go, let dry and then push the steering plate holder along with the upper bearing on
place a 4*6*0.25mm spacer on top and screw it all back together

and tatatata you got a 100% slopfree steering

They have about 36-40 runs on them since June. At first I used anti-wear grease, but I started to see signs of wear. So I stopped. How much are you putting on? A shite load? I think mod driving style is smoother than stock. So less on/off throttle like in stock. Same with oneway driving. Much smoother driving style in 23t classes in Japan. Here in USA, parking lot tracks with tight turns and a lot of on/off throttle will cause more banging and wear. That's what I think it is. But I'm not the only one complaining about wear on them. Anyways, I hope the harden steel ones last longer. All my other cars before did not have this problem. Of course they were bladed cars (TA05, 415, 416, 007, 009, Cyclone, etc, etc.) I'll probably switch back to aluminum just for the nationals. I'll be sure to put a hole tube of AW grease on them!

300W stock without breaking will NEVER! cause the wear a 800W modified setup causes no matter how you drive or the track is

I apply a small drop of muhcmore joint grease to each of the flat areas of the diff outdrive, where the cvd pin touches

and redo this every 2 runs
this way you can easily do 100+ runs on a set of outdrives before seeing any wear

My bad, I forgot you were the professional and I'm not. I'll go sit in the corner now.

lol dude, your right it def needs a blade but I think it should be quite easy to just file the outdrive and stick on a team bomber blade.
I was able to file the old BD aluminum outdrives and used a TC5 blade.
Unfortunatly the bones were to long unless I used SDW WCSP universals.
Which i hate.

Hello Martin, sorry for the late, but on your set up sheet from Apeldoorn, you write "C.G method" for the tire treatment, what does it mean?

Thx
