Default Diff Building

In the process of building the diff on my FC16. I read that some guys use a thrust bearing and then the cone washer. Does the thrust bearing replace the alum spacer? It this advisable on unprepared asphalt tracks? Thanks for the help.

The CRC premount tires are very close, (if not same??) as the Pit 571/572. I cannot tell them apart handling wise, but need to do more testing. Grip is pretty good and will work at most of the norcal tracks.

The CRC wheels are a lot stiffer than the Tamiya foam wheels. Nearly no flex, probably would make for a good wheel for high grip conditions. My only complaint is the tolerances are too tight. You kind of have to force the rear wheels onto the rear hubs. And the wheel bearings have to be pressed in carefully for the front wheels.

Anyone have a good starting set up point for the FC16? How to adjust droop front and rear and where to position the top shock. Running on unprepared parking lot. Thanks.

Just transfer from one to the other, I already put the 1mm and 2mm shims in the the right places on your FC15.

Dumper , we are talking about the plastic front bulk head suspension shims .

For Asphalt , I like the CRC white shock spring . Front springs , Tamiya F1 spring set . Tires , MRH has the CRC premounts instock ,good starting point. Plus these are good for the upcoming F1 race there !
.45 side springs which are the soft ones .

I need a big favor from one of you guys that own this car.
Can someone please pull their diff apart and with a set of calipers measure from the pinned red diff. hub (diff ring side..face of the hub ) to the end of the carbon shaft (where the red 4mm stud is glued in)... basically I need to know length of carbon axle the runs through the spur and wheel hub.
Also need the length of the 4mm stud (how much is sticking out of the axle).


Trying to fit this axle in a different car.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry about the late response to your question.

If you are describing the Slapmaster Thrust Bearing assembly. It comes with its own aluminum spacer, thrust bearing (3 pieces) and locknut. No cone washer needed. I did use them on my CRC WGT pan cars; but, the redesigned rear axles on newer cars may not accommodate the extra width of a Slapmaster assembly.

I recently purchased a wtf1 16 and a tamiya f60 body to run on it. I'm finding this body to be a poor fit width wise, is there a body out that would be a better fit ?

A thrust bearing assembly is more than likely not going to fit. Just use the stock parts and you will get a smoother and lighter diff that fits correctly.

We run either the Protoform 13 or the 14 and they fit just fine. I prefer the 13, and some of our guys prefer the 14.

Thanks I will give the PF13 a shot, it's a shame I've had to hack the crap out of the f60 to get it to fit.
