Default Centre Layshaft One way Question

I have just bought a front one way and a centre lay shaft one way, My question is this. Which side of the spur gear does the one way gear go, (when looking down on the car from the rear). I know this is a dumb question but im having a blonde moment !!! Any help would be great

The one-way pulley goes on the side that goes to the rear belt. The bearings inside give the one-way effect to the layshaft and therefore to the front belt.

Where are you all getting your Yokomo aftermarket parts? I can't find a thing for my BD or LCG except the odd piece from RC Mart.

Can anyone tell me the benifits of the masami rear shock tower, I have forgotten.

Are the SDW arms used on the BD also used with the cyclone ft end or do you use starndard wishbones??


Thanks

yea i had the same thing, wasn't sure i had the right package, fronts only went about a 1/8 of a inch into the outdrives. i did try them when i put the sdw arms on and they were ok, but first hit on the pipe with the spool and they were done.

Default Rayspeeds

You're correct....
rayspeeds don't fit on the front...for some reason..
but are nice in the rear of the car... to me the car felt better with the Rayspeeds CVDs on...
i didn't try them on the front...i thought having the steels on the front would be better durability.
