Hey there, have you had any trouble fitting an optional rotor in the 2008 motors? I recently bought a 2008 blue ring rotor and had problems fitting it inside my 2008 10.5 motor.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jilles,

how is going there?

I wish to received some suggestion about a standard base setup for my 416WE on a carpet and ashpalt, I use a speedpassion 10.5T.

I used my trf416we only two times in two different indoor tracks, with sorex 36. I have some trouble because sometimes my car tend to reverse.

I will very happy to receive your base setup for motor 10.5T in order to have a good setup base point .


Thank you.

Jilles

Thanks for taken time to have a look at my car at TITC10 it was a great event

although i still not sure im ready to take the dremil to my chassis. I ment to ask you if i could have a look buy didnt want to bother you (maybe you can share some pics), altough cut the lipo tray down and moving in the lipo did help, i also removed the the rear top deck screws but this my have given me to much rear traction as i over cooked the tyres

But thanks again and for taken the time for signing my boby it will be hung on my wall of my toy room for years to come

Jilles has never driven the 415. He hasn't been with Tamiya that long...

Hello Jilles! When I practice with modified (5.5) it's very hard on my 416's diffs, even if I run them very tight they tend to slip if I'm too aggressive with the throttle and feel like they need to be rebuilt after just a few runs. Any suggestions on how to prolong diff life, or do you guys just rebuild them very frequently? I'm still learning to be smoother with the throttle, racing only stock before lends itself to bad habits being too fast on the throttle, and that's not working so well with modified.

Hey Syndr0me!

Have you tried building the diff with ceramic balls and sanding the plates as Jilles does in the videos of RC tips with Jilles.

I race modified (4.0) and my diffs never had the tendency to slip but that might be because our tracks in portugal are pretty smooth so the diffs donīt get a lot of strain

Hope I helped out!

I had a similar problem and the solution was to replace the front belt. When the front belt slips it usually cant be heard but shows up as wear on the rear diff. Marc and Victor replaces their belts after every race, the trade off for using low friction belts.

Hey guys, thanks for your replies. I do build my diffs just as Jilles says in the videos (with ceramic balls). I also just replaced the belts last week, and they still appear to be brand new. The noise definitely seems to be coming from the diff. It seems to be beneficial to run it tight the first time, 'cause if you end up with a diff that slips for even one pack, it must be rebuilt afterwards.

i'm not jilles

But i think you will find that mod drivers are changeing there diffs after 2-3 runs then rebuilding them when they got time

at titc i was sitting with to mod drivers and they both had about 20 spare built diffs

and were building as they went trough practice rounds trought heats and finals

just a thought
