if you use these though, I would recommend using RPM or similar ball joints as I find the standard Kit ones sloppy with the Ti Balls.....

Did someone say further back in this thread that there is a spool available for this car? If so, where can you get it and what is the part number?

Also, the dogbones that come with the car are pretty weak. I know there has been some talk back and forth in regards to which ones are the most durable at the same time as id doesn't prohibit performance.
Titanium ones out there? Part numbers and where can you get them?

I put a new bumper on from P-Dub today to help protect the front drivetrain and arms.

Can someone explain to me why we have the choice to use a locked or a one-way centre pulley? What effects do they have on the car?

Cheers Ears

A one-way pulley has a similar effect as a front one-way, but not as "extreme". It gives more steering off-power, but same on-power and acceleration in corners as a normal diff drive. A front one-way gives more effect in all of these criteria, mroe off-power, on-power and acceleration in the corners. However, a one-way pulley also makes braking very tricky, like a front one-way, so in some cases in defeats the object and some combinations will not work ie front spool+one-way pulley, as the pulley will override the spools braking effect. However, if the track you are racing on is sutiable for a front one-way, then a front one-way+one-way pulley might be even quicker, this is why these japanese cars (yokomo bd, cyclone) come with one-way pulleys, as japanese tracks favour one-ways.

spool+locked pulley
one-way+locked pulley
one-way+one-way pulley
diff-locked pulley
diff-one-way pulley (possible)

if you dont mind using steel balls and you need shorter ballstuds, you can use the ballstuds that are on the front steering knuckle.

i know on the pro4 the stock camber link ballstuds (inner) are long, and if you run small shims they will hit the outdrive. if you switch to the ballstuds that are on the steering knuckle, which are shorter, you can run very little shims and not hit the outdrive.

easily avail too, just no ti. but def cheaper as well

First run was a bit all over the place but from there on, the car just felt much faster and smoother. I wouldn’t have the balls to use a one-way anywhere else though, Snetterton’s layout is very open, no tight bends to worry about.

I think if you can perservere, you will only benefit from using one.
I think you are right that snetterton is about the only track where you can get away with a one-way. In qualifying it may well be as quick, but for racing spool is always faster, as it gives more car control. As snetterton is our home track we have done lots of back to back comparisons and to be honest there is little difference between between the two, indeed lap for lap over 5 mins the spool gave more consistent lap times.
This is not to say that everyone will have the same experience, but as a general rule of thumb I would say spool cars on average will be quicker throughout the weekends racing.

Default Some trouble with the cyclone

Hi all, does anyone came across this problem, the front hubs vibrates and jerks alot when the car is at half or full steering and throttle is at half squeeze or more... the steering travel is perfectly fine and the bearing is good too. please advise me on this.. by the way, i'm using spool in the front. my friends who are using the same set up do not have this prob.
