but, one IS the metric version of the other.

i was simply trying to say that "48 pitch" and "0.6 module" are the same thing. (simplified from when someone from robinson explained it to me, basically). the reason the tamiya pinions don't mesh perfectly with regular gears is because they're metric.

is that clearer?

The problem has to be the red foams that go in the outdrives and axles. If these are sized right, your dog bones shouldn't move side to side at all. At the same time, the 'softness' of the foam ensures that there is no binding. I would suggest that you buy some more of those red foams and recut them accoarding to the manual.

I've been so impressed with the dogbones on this car that I have totally nixed all plans to replace them with universals.

I did find that if you got a whoopsy dogbone, insert an o-ring into either the stub axle of difff outdrive to stop movement.

Exclamation Outdrive for spools!

I picked up a spool for my TA05 at Tamiya and the outdrives appear to be a black oxide coated steel material. I made one test run and got a large amount of chatter when turning the front wheels. This was never a problem with the ball diff. So after looking at my 415 spool I noticed that the shafts are in line with each other and the shafts were 90 degrees from each other on my TA05, so rotated the shafts so they are the same and the chatter almost went completely away, still some chatter at full throw so I had an idea, switched the delrin outdrives from my 415 with the steel on the TA05 and now no chatter and very smooth even at full turn. Has anybody tried the 05 spools and had this problem? I believe Tamiya will come out with replacement steel outdrives for the 05 and will work with the 415 and visa versa!
What can I say, I'm a fool for a spool!!!!!

well i'm gonna try those retainer rings from the HP diff joints now b/c only this left front hops out. gonna try a thicker eraser head in there as well. hopefully it will keep it in there. it doesnt have any lateral movement when u go lock to lock, but somethin is happenin out there racing (no linx are not poppin off) thats shootin it out such that it lands up the outdrive cup itself.

argh (btw i'm on universals in front)

Exclamation RE: Spool!

What length universals are you using? You should be using at least the 46mm long swing shafts, 48mm will work also. Are you using a spool or a diff.? Are using the Precision outdrive or the original?

You'll have to add more holes! Then is should work fine!

I would say you got the outdrives on the diff's springing open allowing the driveshaft to escape, get the retaining rings on there, shoudl solve the problem, as they are RETAINING rings... lol

i wonder why your HP diff joints don't come with the retaining rings? I bought the HP diff joints and they come with the rings.

Yes, I'm having the same problem. Tonight I stuffed some foam into the outdrives and it never happened again for the rest of practice. I did notice that the red foams just completely shredded away as if the diff screw was not in all the way. You would think that the dogbone was too long but the problem is that the dogbone is slipping out of the axle.

I would take apart the universals and clean everything and re-grease all parts and check the pins closely for flat spots and make sure the holes in the axles where the pin makes contact isn't oval shaped. Check for any wear on the barrels and replace as necessary. And last, the eraserhead should make slight contact with the shaft, not bindy, I use o-rings instead of the foam especially on the allen head side so you can adjust the diff without taking out the foam.
See if that helps!
Good luck and don't forget.............HAVE FUN!
