Now, if I could get the leaning problems cured with the K tank I would be a happy camper.
Jim: You guys notice any leaning problems with the stock Ae tank when it gets down to lets say 1/8th a tank?

no...in fact,I run 2 o rings under the front of the AE tank(went back to that after the K factory leaked)....and I was suprised how well it ran...

The K factory tank ran way better with 2 orings also(on leaning)...My freind did the same and confirmed the results with the K fact.....In fact,if you look at the tank,they designed it with a rear slope...

Well we finished 3rd 2 heats, over heated the engine 1 heat the car had no power on bottom end. The 10 min A main looked very well until it decided to rip the rear diff gears out.
Yes, Harry it was the white gears and yes it was shimmed and lubed to spec.
The white gears seem to be the fix though, its the first set we have stripped this season .
I did'nt add 2 o'rings to the K tank, but shortened the pressure and rerouted and shortened the carb feed line to as short as possible, and the leaning went away, so I dunno?
The chassis has improved lap times and is very more consistant. All we have to do is learn to drive it better!Well diff gears are replaced, we are off to local parking lot track today.

I'm glad you're doing OK...I supect there's a reason the diff rebuild kit comes with a new gear..and all the other parts for 13 bucks...

let me ask you a question....you notice how the diffs throw off lube so quick?...even if they feel great(I mean,I check mine after 1 sqeeze bottle,and the lube is every where but on the diff balls)..

you think they get dry,and overheat?...

also,you think the teeth wear out(slowly),and then strip?...

I'm going to start watching the wear on those diff gears...

try the 2 orings up front..it couldn't hurt..

sorry for this question, but what are the "white gears" you are talking about? I did purchase a rebuild kit the other day (it was $13.00), but the gear that came with it was the gray one. The one that comes with the kit. And what do you mean by shimming? I have run my car for 2 races (plus about a dozen times up and down my road) and i am going to rebuild the front and rear diff's. Also what do you mean by gear box? is that where the diffs go? cause i thought that was called the transmission case.

Still a newbie. thanx

Jim,

I have to ask a silly question. Obviously, that chassis is milled from a huge chunk of aluminum. From the pic, you can see aluminum shavings every where, probably only using between 1/5 and 1/8th of the actual block. Do they recollect those shavings and melt them down or are they tossed?

Hi HM, I'd never call the moderator's questions silly! I have alot of respect for you and your "pay it forward" campaign here and on other forums. All the shavings are recycled by an outside company, kind of like soda cans. The Chassis starts as a 1" block. Thanks for asking! Jim

Hey! That's MY hand! Actually, Blazing Bob was gonna touch it up for me, I figured most of us die-hards have screwed up hands anyway. I replied to your PayPal payment notification with your wifes's name, thought I had a hot babe buying our Chassis!

LOL!! I consider my wife a hot babe, but she wants an off road so she can run over my ntc3. Yea, i have to use my wifes account because she has all the feedback. I dont feel like starting over with my own Can't wait to get the chassis and run it around.

btw, has anyone tried to run a 5 cell hump? The reason i ask is because i just bought an 1100mah pack and dont want to spend the money on a flat cell if i dont have to.

Good answer! Never know when the wife my check your posts! You could certainly use some 4/40 by 3/4" screws to mount the battery plate on top of a hump and put some foam in the leftover space. If your soldering skills are good you could reconfigure and reshrink your pack too. For those of you who already have one, we've modified the battery stand-offs to make allowance for 5 cell side-by-side flat packs. Contact me for new posts if you need them, they're shipping with all new Chassis's.
