Rear diff - not heard of anyone stripping the Machined Steel ones, you sure they are the Machined Steel ones and not the Cast Steel ones?
See below..

[QUOTE=coldfusion]Dun know if they are cast or machined. But they are def option steel ring gears from kyosho. Is it written on the tag whether cast or machined? will go back and check tonite.

Anyways, i know the manual in the pack says you don't need to shim the steel option gears but after running once i chipped one of the tooth on the small gear and damaged the ring gear at the front. From that experience, i diregarded instructions and decided to add shims to keep the free play at minimum without binding of course and it seems to work for a few meets. This is with two small shims just after the big bearing before the pin and the small gear.

But the last time i serviced the gears i noticed some freeplay even with the two shims at the rear and added another small shim. Not sure if it was binding but after last weekend's race i found out i damaged both the ring and small gear at the rear again. It was razor sharp! Serviced it last night and changed the god damn ring and small gear again for the third time, removed the third shim and left just two shims in there. added some ring gear grease and packed it back. will test it again this weekend. The front seems to only need one shim. If this @#$$ ring gear strips again i'm going to sell the car and get a RRR!!!

Dude, I think you shouldn't use different ring gears (ie; 40T-F, 39T-R), that could be da problem

Well if this is an isolated incident you could be doing something wrong. never had this problem either. My problem is a lot different. I've been experiencing worn screw heads in my kyosho screws. I'm using the Tamiya (*ahem*) mini toolkit to screw them in place. So far I've worn out 3-4 screw heads just adjusting stuff here and there.

Coldfusion, I do have a set of little used 39T ring gears and bevel gears that I will sell for US$20 plus shipping if you are interested. They are in good condition. PM me if you are interested.

Jeff, thanks for the offer. Will consider and get back to you.

Mgsr - is this an after market solid spool for the FW or self made version? Also is the 40t ring gear machined steel?

Cow - thanks but i don't need another car - would you like to trade your ring gears for an all day pass at Pudu spa?

Dude, I finally experienced what you're talking about. I didn't even notice that my dogbone fell off until at least 3 days. Good thing it was still in front of my house but got rusty due to the rain for 3 days.

I also found the cause for it. It turns out if you do a subtrim that is 45 degrees or more on the car's turning angle the dogbone gets exposed on the wheel end. So if you're turning while accelerating this will definitely kick the darn thing out. Try using standard subtrim of 100% because mine was set at 125%. Btw, add the extra oring on the outdrive and not on the wheel end. This will push the dog bone deeper into the wheel. There's ample space in the outdrive and it won't fall off.
