Default Kawahara Center Conversion?

Yes ..just finished installing it and I got a question to those who running this set-up....

1. The slop by the new center drive cup....is that normal? Seems like the stock set-up has less slop.

2. Should I put the o-ring back to the center drive cup(Front) or leave it out?

3. Anything on that Japanese installation instruction that I miss...that is very important?


Thanks!

I don't have the Kawahara Center Conversion yet but I did see another racer with it. He did have the o-ring in the front cup and the slop was also there.

Thanks Evo!

I have to put that o-ring back then...it's just there's not that much space in there - that is why I decided to leave it out --- again Thanks!

Takuya Ito finish in 2nd at the LRP Nitro Masters 2004 Luxembourg. From the looks of the picture the car is using all Kyosho parts. I guess the car works good with out using different conversions.
Are they Mugen rear hubs or the new RRR? They look like RR top links. Also the pipe is really short

Cheers

I found the bearing to be loose at the back in the housing. I added a few shim washers to the drive shaft to move the cup forward to remove the slop and still support the bearing.

I also thought the clamp screws that go through the upper deck did not clamp firm enough so replaced them with bolt and nut to be able to tighten the housing down on the bearing without stripping the thread.

Also use good lock tight on the grub screw. Loss of rear drive cost me the C final last race. (I wouldnt have won but didnt even start!)

Cheers

The bevel drives are different. One has a groove in it and should only be matched with the right bevel gear (cant remeber which one!)

Yup...that one goes to the front diff. How about the those Japanese scripts, by any chance?

Good idea Zig!! Just wondering how hard would be the install of the nut?? I'm gonna take a look on my car later...probably it is not that hard than I thought....

Already sussed that one (and done it) as I got fed up with stripping the threads in the gearbox case.

Cut down a Hex key to a size that can fit an Hex screw between the chassis and gearbox, then place a hex screw through the bottom, then use the hex key to hold the screw when you fit the nut.

it seem like a lot of work to get the conversion to work!

This is not only on the conversion, it is on the standard kit.
Mainly where the main shaft enters the rear gearbox (bearing area) , it pushes apart under load and has caused two other racers to strip their rear diffs, one of them an out the box FW05S with GS15R and single speed.
