I was 1/100th sec off my best lap and 1 sec off best race time, first timed race day.

I had some problems with the kit settings not suiting me, but being in every race and helping to run the computer doesn't leave much time for making changes between races.

I'll make some changes in the direction I took the assassin which is awesome now. I'm expecting next race day to be much faster.

Cheers
Peter

Has anyone had any problems with the rear diff ?. I ran the car for the first time last weekend and it was with out a doubt the best touring car i have ever driven . Today the car was terrable due to the rear diff binding. It would be smooth for a few rotations then grab like a spool ...... smooth for a few more rotations then grab again. I rebuilt it and checked the balls and rings and found no problems . ran it again and the problem was still there but not as bad. I have alot of experience with rc , so i have checked the obviouse. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My guess is your running the LW diff with alu pulley?
Corally is now including a delrin pulley, and exchanging the alu pulley.
You can go to your LHS for an exchange.

Sure enough ....... The thrust bearring (or i should say what was left of it) was the problem. there were three balls left and i believe the metal shavings were once a bearring race or "cage"....Incase this happens to anyone else and you are in a pinch for the part , the thrust bearring of an xray diff. is the same diameter and works perfectly. Thanks for the replys guys.

Front bar is the shorter one.

For outdoors try 30wt oil with the larger piston 1.3mm or drill out the stock piston to like a #56.

I had problems with my diffs. When I received the parts I noticed that the machining had left a very sharp finish. Since all the edges have been cleaned off my diff has been working without any problems. I think the problem was caused by very small peices of Alloy getting knocked off and getting caught in either the thrust race or main diff rings.
