With the new factory kit, you could go as low as 124 64dp. With the standard evo2 pulleys, 116 64dp.

tried on the ae springs, yep they fit, the losi springs too, but they are kinda large.

x-ray springs cost a bundle here, will probably stick to ae ones.

Have a read of http://www.rccaraction.com/rc/articles/oneways.asp.

This article provides a good summary of one way diffs.

That's good! At least you don't have to worry that other Xray owners will copy your spring set-up.

This might be a stupid question, but did you also change the pulleys on the center layshaft, too?

If youve got a good Carpet/foam set-up-then go down a few lbs on spring rate- add a thin rear sway bar and go from there.

Arrow HELP!!

I am trying to build one of the ball diff's on my T1R but am having trouble with the part where you put the set screw(#305040) into the long diff shaft and then you place a small allen wrench through the aligned holes in both pieces.

My problem is when i am threading the long diff shaft down onto the short diff shaft, the two shafts will not come together all the way so that the both the diff washers (#305082) are just touching the diff balls.

The diff pully is wobbly between the shafts and I cannot tighten it any more for some reason. If anyone understands what I am talking about please help me out!
Thanks!

OK one more question...Should the set-screw meet resistance before it is fully threaded into the shaft? When I am threading down it becomes very hard to keep going but is not in the proper position. So do I keep on screwing harder (<~~~ hehe) until its right??

**edit** Yeah, I'm offically stupid!!! Problem Fixed!

Glad you fixed it. I was going to recommend looking at the thrust washer.

Default Spare Parts

I'm going to order some spare parts for my Factory Team kit so I have a small stock to cover breakages.

What parts are known to have problems with breaking and needing replacement?
