Anyone selling one?
Not an R5, but looks like a great deal HERE

i would suggest the DX3R, i have one, really like it. i know at least person that had troubles with the DX3S. the telemetry optioned receiver was problematic for him.

also, i have a GenXL in good shape with some parts, ($125+shipping) LMK.

When on a straight and putting the power on the car pulls to one side. It only does this with lower turn motors and tracks completely straight at normal speed. This to me would say it's the diff slipping but it is hard to turn when I hold the spur and one wheel so presume it is tight enough. Anyone else exspereanced this problem in 12 th ? When I say lower turns I mean 10.5 as I was running 17.5.

Are your tires at the same diameter?

I've had this problem recently. It was an itchy trigger finger!

It should be impossible to turn - totally tight. Any slip you can exert with your hand needs to be eliminated. A good diff build will be smooth as glass and tight as a drum. It isn't usually the diff that causes the car to take of at an angle, it's usually an uneven width of the rear axle from side to side (not centred) or the same problem when comparing front and rear track - the rear track is offset compared to the front.

After that there are scores of small things it could be, so best find one of us at a meeting and we'll sort it out. HTH

Your rear axle could be spaced incorrectly or could be too tight. There needs to be a little play in the rear axle or you will bind the rear bearings which are both on the same side of the diff.

Ah then I first need to tighten my diff. I am on the south coast in the UK so chances are I wont be at a meeting near you guys. Will get one of my local club guys to check it though.
Just triad to get my diff tighter but it just strips the thread on the plastic diff nut on the 12r5.1 I have spares so have got it as tight as I can but still not perfect.
Thanks for the replys though.

Ok got it on the setup board

The rear measurement from dead centre of the chassis to the outer edge of the rear foams is bang on 85mm both sides including 2 shims that come as part of the kit. They are not binding on the bearings as when I built the kit I had this problem and sorted it then,there is a very small gap just enough for it to not bind but not slop, with no pinion the rear wheel spin as free as the fronts. so dont have a clue. The next thing I will do is true down my foams a bit so to make sure they are all even and the same size. Fronts are 84mm from centre to edge. Its not a major problem but something that could be on a bigger track. Open to any suggestions
