Dont know if you've seen the work on my chassis that I did by hand with my dremel, but it's pretty clean, and I would never think of doing the outdrives by dremel.. They need a mill to get done right.

Why not just use pin cushions?

These will also roll on the outdrive which the pin cushion won't do. They help free the car up from bind, and again, the pin cushion wont, it is just there to reduce wear on the outdrive.

ive seen your hand done chassis's and those are works of art, so i guess ill take ur advice and use the cnc mill...

Hey everyone,

I'm not sure if everyone's found where to buy the Red Trf Dampers, but I recently found a set and will be happy to point you in the right direction if interested. PM me for the phone number / info.

Thanks

When I asked Losi jr @ Reedy race he told me If there is any problem (busted bearings or some) that can ruin the whole axle, which can cost more and also he don't like the Idea about jamming BB's on to pin

he's been thinking about making them with easy ball bearings install / removal method.

It is a tight fit onto the pin and I have cracked the inner race of a few bearings while pushing them on. These bearings are tiny, so there is very little material and they are easy to mess up. If they wanted a way to install/remove the bearings easilly they could just thread the part of the CVD where the pin is and use 2 button head screws to secure bearings to either side..
