OK--BACK TO WORK!!

I've got a Novak question for the Great One...

Soldered up a couple brand new IB3800 packs, my first 6-cell 3800's. They've been charged, one of them was used one run and re-charged. When I insert them in my Smart Trays (either one) the lights all come on when I push the button to start but all six lights go out immediately when I release the button. This does not happen with IB3800 4-cell packs or any of my other 4- or 6-cell packs.

They DO discharge on my Brand-X discharger/conditioner.

Stumped,

Scottrik

Make sure that you have the polarity of your pack correct. The Positive solder tab should be at the bottom right and the negative solder tab should be at the bottom left... if you not there are little pictures of battery bars on the smart tray as well... line those up with the battery bars on your pack and you should be fine!

I was going to make a smart-assed comment about having used these bad boys for a year and a half on a couple dozen different packs...

...then I looked at the battery packs and see the soldering tabs run off the "wrong" side of the batteries. Both of 'em. At least I'm CONSISTENTLY incompetent.

Thanks Steve!

Default Problems-XXX-S One Way

Last year I bought two one ways on E-bay from different people.
I am confident I did not install them backwards. I burned out both of them after about 15 minutes or less track time. When I removed them from the car little rollers from the bearings fell out.

1. Do you know where I could buy just the one-way bearing itself to put in the outdrives?

2. Someone mentioned to me something about you having to make some small modification of the main chassis of the XXX-S for the one way assembly to mount correctly, this did not make much sence to me.

3. Is there something I am doing wrong or do you have any tech info about setting up a one way, that might prevent this from happening.

4. I am not a very experienced driver(I know they say one-ways are hard to drive) but the little bit of track time I had running the one way, I liked the way the car handled. I have a tendancy to enter the corner a little to fast and the extra off power steering would help I think.

5.One thing that is important to me is reliability if the one way is inherently unreliable than I will forget about it and go back to a diff.
Thanks in Advance.

Almost everyone has abandoned one ways in favor of spools. The only time one-ways are still in use occasionally are when you run carpet with rubber tires and even then spools are usually faster.

Maybe in the US, but we still use one-way with rubber on carpet most of the time in europe. Marc R won the recent DHI cup & carpet world cup with one-way. Also Hara won JMRCA last year with one-way.

As I was starting out racing TC's I bought two different TC-3 packages (a BMI chassis and a Warpspeed Demon chassis) from two different racers who were both relatively experienced. They both had one-way front diffs and BOTH made the same error. They both had the "normal" outdrive bearings (as one would find in the kit for the diffs) that had been pressed onto the one-ways where the correct bearing is a close fit but goes on by hand. The "normal" bearings have the usual chromed outer race surface while the HD one-way bearings have a brushed or matte silver outer race surface. The one-way's come with the correct carrier bearings, but replacement bearing kits, etc do not. The only source I could find for the correct bearings is Associated.

The long and short of it is that the one-way bearings failed VERY quickly--one lasted a few races, the other just a few heats. I'm guessing these "normal" bearings were pressed onto the on-way body (probably with a vise) and there was enough interference that it compressed the body onto the bearing creating too tight of a fit. Since this problem has been identified and corrected I've not had a problem in over a year of active racing.

I'm not aware of anyplace you could buy just the appropriate one-way bearing. Be aware that this would require a fairly specialized puller to get the old bearing out and a press to properly install and seat the new bearing. If you DO find a source please shout out. I'd buy a couple just for the hell of trying it as I have two ruined one-ways sitting on my desk.

There are two great tips on '4wdrc.com' on how to prevent your xxx-s one-ways from blowing up.
