Gary, K-factory is imported by Trinity. Any shop that deals with them can get K-factory stuff from them.

You need a K-factory centax clutch? I have one new in package. Make an offer!

No, actually looking for a front shock tower. Bought a NTC3 used and the front tower has a tweak to it. I was also thinking about grabbing one of their 3 shoe clutch systems. I have a Centax on another car and have not liked it.

This is the cheapest place I have found to get K parts in the US. Problem is they sell cheap and stock is limited. They are out of stock on most items now, but they have an order due in anytime so stock will be back soon. Don't buy from Trinity if not an absolute have too!!! The are way to high on K parts. Don't give Ernie any pocket change!! LOL

After trying the regular front diff, one way and spool, I'm hooked on using the spool. I don't want to go back to anything else. The car oversteers so good. I can even brake much later. Anyone feel the same?

The one thing that shied me away from using the spool with my FT NTC3 was my concerns over how the drivetrain would handle the extra loads put on it by the spool.
Cheers

Default V2 rear end

Do you set rear width the same a the front with the plastic tool. Also do you only adjust the lower front for toe and leave lower back pivot alone? Instructions are not clear.

Also any one have problems with the front out drives just holding the bones?

Probably I'd switch back to a diff on a high traction track.

We feel the same. The car is unreal with a spool up front on our local track, we are 2 laps faster with the spool. But.... The front diff gears will not last, at least with the Richey HP we use. We strip 1 to 3 diffs out of the car each raceday. I've tried and shimmed it everyway possible, and we are not hitting anything, not bouncing off the boards or pipes, nothing!
Last big race of the year here last year we stripped 3 spools, one each heat. Switched back to a diff and were 2 laps slower, but the car stayed together! We ran a total of 5 heats for the main, at least they took the best heat of the 5 for main positions. Oneways last better but will also strip eventually. Bob

What about the pinions or the smaller gears? Do they strip out at the same rate as the diff gears?

On a high traction open track using VHT, I found the front one-way worked extremely well.
Cheers

Speaking of front one way, anyone know the bearing dimensions for the Kfactory one way and the AE one way?

Its usually always the big ring gear but I have seen the small gear take a few teeth lose also, I think it was do because of the ring gear teeth getting caught in the pinion gear and binding it up.

So the silicon grease between the gears didn't help much?
