has anyone ran a solid diff in the rear and a oneway up front on the ntc3. would that be good for a large 1/8 type track?

i have ran the solid rear with front one way i ditched the rear
solid due to our 1/8 scale track still has medium sized turns
in wich you have to power out and the rear solid made it very
inconsistent and seems to want the rear end to step out.
as for large sweeping corners or powering out of tight turns
the did get better. i guess you will have to try it and find out
if the advantages of that set up won't be compromised in
another section of the track.

Default Assistence Required!

People,

I had a bit of string caught around the shaft between the rear diff and the 2 speed. i removed the string but now when i rotate the wheels in a forward direction the 2 speed hardly moves at all. Have i fucked the one way bearing in the two speed?

It probably just needs a rebuild. There may be something lodged in there and that's binding it up. Try taking out the 2 speed assembly and just shooting some degreaser through it. Should free things up.

Also, if you are just moving the wheels forward, then the 2 speed should be rotating with the rest of the drive train. Try putting your finger on the brake (to lock it) and then try spinning the taller gear. It should spin rather freely along with the other gear. If it's not, there is probably something binding it; just clean it up and things should be back to normal.

Default Transponder Mount....

Hi all:

At first, seemed very odd that AE missed a transponder mount for their car, but after several minutes I found a suitable place to install it and the best of all, reinforces the front end (for those T-boners... ).

I have two sets of foam bumpers and when I race at my local track (old AMB transponders) I put this foam.

Where are mounting the transponder the rest of people?

Default TC3NUT, attention.

TC3NUT: I tried to locate your postings over the HPI forum regarding Worlds, but are K.O. and I suppose that all the attachments are lost. I needed some photographs that you posted about.

Please, PM and I'll put on a website available to all people.

Default Diff gears

I am having problems with the front diff gear. It seems they are very sensitive to banging into objects as you run them. I blew through 3 gears in one day running a one way.

Has anyone had a similar problem.

Uhm.... this problem hasn't appeared on some time, seems that when using one-way the shimming of the conical gear is different, revise the mesh and correct if necessary. Depending what one-way you have the shimming is different.

A friend happened the same and one partial solution was to install the Carbon Fiber radio plate, who stiffens the car and don't permits chassis flexing and distorting the mesh of the gears. But the most important: try to don't slam objects with your car....

I think this is still a problem with one-ways in these cars. I tried all year to run one, Associated & Yokomo, with no luck. Even after several attempts to shim differently I couldn't keep the gear teeth from folding over. Hopefully Associated will let us purchase the gear sets they're using on their team cars with one-ways. They're machined delrin or nylon and they hold up.

I haven't had problems with my gears for
about two months now but it is in the back
of my mind when i'm racing. with proper
mesh and the delrin diff gears should
do the trick so it almost won't be an issue.
anyway this is still the car to beat in our
region.

You need to put a shim between the motor bearing and collet.Check your local hobby store,they should have some in stock.

I need you guys opinion on the three shoe clutch versus the centex. I really would like a good opinion not just "centexs rules" and all the other crap. I just want to know if I should spend the money on the centex or not. Thanks guys!
