Ok can Todd or somebody help me out please? If this has been asked and answered, then I apologize, but I can't find it, so I'll ask. I'm taking a good look at the cars from snowbirds, and I run across this pic:

http://rctech.net/events/snowbirds20...ar_hodge_2.jpg

Now, this clearly shows what APPEARS to be a one-way....in the rear....hmm. Or is this just the normal plastic outdrives you've modified so that you can run the outdrive rings? I would have to assume that you've just modified the stock ones........right? If so, did you machine them, or just dremel a groove into stock outdrive?

Also, again, probably asked and answered, but how do you keep those little bearings on the pins of the driveshafts? 'Cause it looks to me like those would just fly right out of there without something to hold them in...no?

thanks for taking the time to answer.

I can answer the first and speculate on the second.
those are called BK bones and will be out soon. the outdrives are widened to accept the bearings. I believe, correct me if i'm wrong, that the bearings are flanged so that they stay on.
hope that helps

Todd, do you sand your diff rings? I'm assuming this helps with slipping while still maintaining a loose diff?

It's not a one way in the rear. It's just a diff that has been machined wider for the bearings and the rings. The bearings are pressed on to the pin.

thanks james and racefan. I didn't really think I one-way would work in the back, but I just wanted to see what was going on there.

One more question. I've noticed that most factory cars have machined, blue, locking hex adapters. Are these adapted from another car? Or is this something else that will be available soon from teamlosi/BK?

Thanks again for all the answers.

They are probably the AE clamping tc3 hubs or the Yokomo clamping tc3 hubs. I have the yokomo tc3 ones on my car.

Hello everyone,

Please forgive me for posting such a simple question but, can you give me a good starting setup for carpet? I have visited the Team Losi site but wasn't sure which one would be best to use. I am looking for something that is fairly forgiving and can help me get in the ballpark. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks for your time
