Default Aluminium Bulkheads

Does anyone know how much more the tamiya aluminium bulkheads(53990,54019) weigh compared to standard/carbon reinforced ones?

Cheers,

Liam

I took first place in the B with my 05R today. Running tweaked C027 with an XBR on RP30s covered by a DNA2. Medium sized carpet track with black can paragon.

I managed 4th in ROAR stock at the NZ Nationals with my 05R last weekend. Won the last A final after a miracle start(no crashes for a change )

Putnam CO27, Corally 4200, Jaco 35 shore foam and Mazdaspeed shell. The car was running really well all weekend but I was having nightmare starts, not to mention the total shockers I was having in modified(with my BD) with some truly frustrating DNF's. Had tried the 05R in mod a few weeks earlier and had no luck so swapped it back to run stock and something just seemed to click.

Got beaten by an MS and a couple of Yokomos, Tamiya is riding a wave of popularity here at the moment as the cars simply seem to work really well.

I've just installed a front one way in my car.

While i like the performance it brings, when I do brake, the rear tends to slide around a bit when coming into corners.

While I will need to change my driving style a little to accomodate the front one way, would a centre one way help with handling. I read people saying with the centre one way you get less braking.....if I was to run this with the front one way, would it be of benefit to the overall handling as if I'm getting less braking then it might just make the rear stay and the rear and not try to overtake the front wheels when i do need to apply the brakes.

that's what it is basically doing with the front one way, going 180....so i might hold off getting the center one way if it only makes matters worse.

From my understanding, a center one-way in conjunction with a front diff is more mild than the front one-way and locked center that your currently using. If you have a front diff to put in, you may want to try that with a center one-way provided your budget allows...

I can speak with my Minister for Finance (better half) to get approval for this necessary additional spending, but I need to show a good outcome......I wouldn't like to get one if it won't make a real difference.

I know I need to change my driving style a little to accommodate the front one way, but if the centre helps, then I'm willing to give it a try.

Aussierevo,

The Front one way acts as a spool under power, under brakes it's like a very very very loose diff.
The centre one way allows diff action under power but behaves like a very very very loose diff under brakes.

If you put both in (I haven't done this) I imagine it will behave just like a front one way by itself, as under power the front axle can not diff.

Cheers

Kevin

I'm not 100% on this, but wouldn't a front one-way allow the outside front tire to be pushed faster than the inside front tire in a turn because it's following a larger radius. This could still be considered more of a diff action than a spool action on acceleration. It's kinda like 3WD in the turns.

In fact, in tighter turns, it may be possible for both front tires to follow a larger radius than the average radius of the two rear tires. This technically makes the car RWD until the rear tires loose traction...

A front one-way is tricky to understand, but fun to drive...

thanks kavadni for the info......been driving a little today, and I'm finding the one way a little of a challenge.....must work on the setup a little more to make it a bit tighter at the back.....and all the while be a little easier on the brakes.
