Default Homemade TC3 Spool

I have heard of using sandpaper disks to fabricate a front spool for the TC3. Does anyone know of this technique?

Thanks

yes thats actually what you get with the xxxs kit to make a spool and im sure it will work fine with the tc3 diff, just make sure you take out the diff balls :P

take out the balls, replace the d rings with sandpaper, crank the sucker tight... hard hits will snap the thrust bolt, but it'll work in a pinch. I'd suggest getting a real spool if you want to drive it for any amout of time... good luck

it makes breaking around turns better i think not sure rich since I only had one and never used it but you can also make a spool by taking a one-way and flooding it with CA ive seen it on the pro 4 thread so they seem to be similar diffs.
