The stock clutch shoea are fantastic. TLR clutch is probably one of the best ever IMO

I've used the stock clutch for years with great wear. Have ran the Novarosai Mito 7, Speed Spec 2, and Samurai with alloy carbon shoes. All ran great with the clutch.

Hey guys, New member here. It is great to find active forums these days...seems like faceb00k has killed all the good forums.

Anyways...after 15 years I have decided to get back into Nitro RC with the purchase of a TLR 8ight T 4.0 kit. I used to race/bash local Nitro 1/10 on-road up until 2004, stopped everything RC for a few years then I got heavy into scale crawling for the past 8 years.

My 8ight 4.0 build is almost done (need to finish electronics, and final setup before I can break in the engine. My question is about the discontinued TLR aluminum split center diff mount (originally made for the TLR 2.0). Is anyone using this mount? I have purchased one brand new in packaging locally for a $30 because it has been hanging on a rack collecting dust for the past few years at a LHS. I know I need a smaller Spur for it to work.

Just curious if anyone is using this piece on the 4.0 and if you have noticed any issues with it, or if it needed any modification to work? or did I just waste $30 haha?

Thank you.

The split diff isnt really a big deal Removing the center diff for what ever reason isn't all that difficult. In truck you wont be changing diff fluids all that much anyway.

For 30 that's a great price on the unit.

Thanks. I picked it up because its a little bit of aluminum bling, and I liked the theory behind it.

It will fit fine. You may have to use 1mm spaces at the bottom to raise the spur up, but it's fine. IMO just makes the drive train noisy.

It mounted up fine.

only "issue" was i could not use the little plastic brace that connects the radio box 3 arm linkage mount to the center diff mount.

not a big deal.

Does everyone else have a half tank lean issue? Is there a work around for this?
Edit: its been a while since I have owned/tuned a nitro engine. I will tune it at half tank, and deal with it being slightly rich at full tank.

I am also trying to obtain more rear traction. The Novarossi .28-8 with a 7mm venturi running 20% Byron fuel, CT07 plug, and a 48T/14T gear setup likes to swing the rear end around. I have looked at the TLR setup sheets and found a few different rear camber link and shock location setups to try out. We will see what happens. I am trying not to change to much at a time so I can see what effects changes make.
