Yep! Sounds like time for a new thrust screw and lock nut. Good Luck. Let us know when you find out what it is for sure.

Also make sure that you have the thrust in the right way. The washers that come with it are two different sizes...I ran into this on mine. Put the one with the smaller inner hole next to the scew head. One of the washers is .2mm different.

i started to have this issue also and about half a run into the main the diff out drive gave. Every qualifier i noticed that the diff would loosen up causing the car to drive very funny i kept tightening the diff untill poof it gave up.

when you take it apart check the outdrive for any type of fractures or any white discolorations of the plastic cracking or deforming this could be a fractured or broken diff half too.

3. Check the belt teeth make sure they are perfectly uniform (not too perfect but they all should be uniform)
4. check the pullies make sure there is nothing wedge in the coggs causing the belt to skip or make sure that the side walls of the pully is not portruding or pinching the belt.
5. belt tension is the key but i think your drive train is shifting around on you.

I had the front and rear diff shift around almost 1mm of play my center shaft has 1mm of paly right now i have sinced shimmed it all out.

hope this helps.
Thanks everybody for the belt-flipping tips. I think my tension is good. I like alot of 5thscaleracer's suggestions, though. I'll have to check the side-to-side wiggle of the diff and center shaft. But I bet its the crap collecting in the rear pulley's teeth. I try to keep that clean, but it always builds up on me. Thanks agian.

And good luck to Team Losi at the Novak Race!

Everybody keep in mind that you can use foams on the old arms with brackets in the rear but its the front arms that rub with the brackets. If it were me I would just use the new front arms and run the rear brackets untill they fill the back orders. I hope it is soon. Good Luck to all the racers going to the Novak race! Kick'm in the Ding-Ding boys!!

what exactly are the advantages to the new arms? From what i read on the losi site it seems to be changes for the asphalt racers? What improvements will I see with my car on carpet with them? Thanks.

Regardless of surface, the new arms force the shock to travel more during articulation. This increase in travel gives you a more distinct feeling between each spring rate and dampening level. It does other fun stuff with stiction of O-rings and increased piston speed variances, but only Gil Jr. is allowed to understand that voo-doo.

Basically, they're good shit, put them on your car and chicks will go flippin silly over your crazy on-track skillz. I swear!
