You are welcome Johnny

Tomorrow evening i`ll go to my local club and make a some test with my new parts for T1 and if i`m lucky Teppo will be there also, so it`s much easier when i can talk with him and make some adjustment for my car in same time

I think that, at new solid axle system will be a hot thing in near future after the one-way especially in carpet. I talk with some guys about one-ways and they agree that at some of those one-ways are grap (bearings are too weak) ie solid axle.

What you guys think about that?

I have not had any problem with the Mid-Shaft one way. As long as I lube it, it is good. I always run the Mid-One Way loose on my carpet track. I also run a really tight Front Diff... Not solid but pretty darn tight.

Mike. I have had a several touring cars (almoust 8 years now) and i mean that front one-way problem especially when i used Yokomo or Associated and i tryed to maintenance and lubricate them, but not any succesful.... i even change new bearings to them.. so i was very buored, because i bought a meny new one-ways and spent a lot of cash. After those i bought a new T1 and no any problems with one-ways, until today many of those manufactures make a bigger bearings now, at they are stonger than before, what is the right way. Now i try to use that new solid diff and center axle system to ficure how different/faster it`s to drive.

Proto: I ran 1 way and solid axle in my 1/8. That is a fast setup but touchie!! Not for unsmooth drivers like me LOL I am not the fastest, but I build a good motor and have a good setup. Run tight diff's on my car, but no 1 way. I think I am getting one for christmas from the wife . I run the front mid tight as I do not want to blow it up Heard of all the troubles, and I have to mail order parts as there are none local.

I digress. What was told to me the 1/8 guru (Art Carbonel). "The solid axle is not a drawback for 1/8 as the 2.5 hp+ motors will over come any losses. There is enough power there to turn the tires over and not give any losses." That made a lot of sense to me. Question, do you run stock or mod? I would be intrested in your feedback on this!!

Hi Proto: I have actually sold all my nitro. I meant electric cars. But I do know that the power of a mod is considerably more that stock and that is why I think mod would work better with straight axle than stock. Stock lacks that extra punch of a 10 single

Talking Test results

Solid-diff and center solid axle together is way to go on carpet!!! Our club track is technical, but fast and grip is quite good especially after several guys drove with foam tires. I`m not sure how it works when grip is lower, because i don`t test somewere else (yet), but yesterday evening my T1 was like a dream to drove. I have also c-hub kit and new Xray shoks in my car and it`s feel very good to drive with cs-22 tires - fast and easy -. I recommend to try this combination with your T1 or Evo2. Those new solid parts are`t even expensive and you can buy them directly from shop. I heard yesterday from other guys, how drive a another cars, they have to make those lockdiffs by themselves....!!!

i am currently running the c-hub front and pivot rear on my evo 2, and i realized that with the stock setting for the camber links and all, that the suspenion has camber change, but its positive. i think this might explain why my car bucks up and down in the high speed, high load corners, where the front suspenion would compress, also the outside edge of my tire is kinda ripped up (not chunked as much though, more like it was ridding on it), all of this would lead me to assume that its the positive camber change that is causing this, how do i make it so its negative camber change? (ie, the more the suspenion compresses the more camber)

any help would be great! thanks!

I belive that a shorter and higher camber link would solve this problem very quickly. I do not know if i am totally correct. I would make a guess that this should help fix it.
