Do you have the groovy little track width guage? Use that front and rear and then when you want to set the toe in on the rear wheels, wind the front lower pivot ball in so you don't change the track of the car. Track is normally measured with the wheels on so that you know that the car is not over 200mm wide for racing. If you use a +2 offset wheel then you need to wind the pivot balls in by 2mm on each side to correct the track.

I run 196mm on the V2 rear, with 30mm tyres 0 offset. measured from the rear of the tyres outer edge.

hey everyone, i just got a new one way for my ntc3, i installed it, and while taking it out, i realized, that my old front diff was the heavy duty metal geared one, since i had recently taken apart my rear diff as well, i remembered, that the rear diff was still that plastic materiail, my question is this: can i swop my front metal geared differential to my rear? are the diff's even interchangable? with the front one-way and a rear metal diff, i don't think i'd need to service my diff's for a while, so it'd be great if i could. thanks alot!

The front and rear diffs are identical so they can be changed front to back.

I'd probably still lube them after each race meet and keep an eye on the ball diff tension. As for the metal gears, I don't have them in mine so I can't really comment.

Cheers,

Z.

Hey soc123_au

How do you like you BMI chassis? How do you go about cleaning your car, do you remove all the electronics and clean or leave them in there? The reason I ask is I have V1 but only used it once I am planning to use it again the remaining part of our season.

Is the BMI chassis worth the spondoolies over the FT chassis? I was wondering how you go with cleaning as well.

I haven't upgraded mine to FT yet but isn't the FT chassis the same as the stock chassis. 2.6mm aluminum. I was really impressed with the BMI when it came down to handling but wasn't impressed when it came to cleaning I would hate to ruin my electronics.

I am assuming you want to know about cleaning. Normally when I clean my car with the stock chassis I remove the radio tray and blast away with denatured alcohol then blow it off with my air compressor. With the BMI there isn't a radio tray so you either remove all the electronics or clean really carefully. Don't get me wrong the chassis handles like a dream and it makes a great car that much better.
