The original 1 way i added no oil and this still happened, im onto my second one, and so I decided a bit more oil may help it.

Yea the standard center shaft wears very quickly. When I just replaced the one-way I installed the Ti center shaft, but the one-way seems to be on the verge of locking up again - after only 1 weekend of racing.

How about titanium layshaft ? Is it harder ( tougher ) than the steel ?

I do have the same problem. The center one-way just locks up for no reason.

Hi,

@coons88: Yes, that's the only stiffener post you can use. Or put o-rings under the screws that holds the top deck to increase flex.


The problem with the driveshaft and the locking center one-way is very well known here in Germany.
The only solution is a harder center driveshaft. I ordered one but it didn't arrived yet so I changed the one-way bearing to one with different tolerances and it holds up perfectly, even with the worn out driveshaft.

Cheers
Chris

I remove two small ball bearing and put another one-way bearing in, the double one-way holds up very well, no problem so far.

Bottom hole seems the best, upper hole makes the car a little more twichy.

I run pretty much the standard setup, just without the rear sway bar. Running 37 rear 32 front. I find it works very well at North Harbour

I've been experimenting with tyre widths which came to a head at the Ultimate open last month. I think the combo I ran was a 26mm wide Jaco 35 rear on the front and a 28mm wide Jaco 30 rear on the back. Still need a bit more track time to play with the suspension options as i would like to tune it like my old SP(whether thats a good thing or not, I don't know)

Car is run using thicker shock oil(40 wt I think).
5mm ground clearance and the front diff slightly tighter than the rear.
Fixed center and front diff.
Mazda 6 shell.
Peak Spashett V2 geared 24/78

Try both ways and find out for yourself you lazy git!

I have messed about with it all as well mate and have found that where we are now is best, bottom hole with spacer on top.
