Default YOKOMO ONEWAY DIFF

Questions?

#1 Does anywone know if they yokomo oneway unit for the ntc3 will work in the electric tc3? I know the outdrives are longer but could it still work witouth binding? If yes im assuming the AE one should aswell?

#2 Are the NTC3 and TC3 oneways identical aside from longer outdrives?

#3 One more: Do the outdrives in the AE oneway fit the yok oneway?

Basically im looking to get a oneway i can use in the summer for my ntc3 and in the winter for my TC3. One unit with spare outdrives is cheaper then getting 2 units.

90$CND is what im trying to save.

Default One-Way

Joel, I have both the Assoc. & Yokomo units. They will both fit in the electric tranny case but the outdrives are too long. The Yokomo outdrives are much larger than the Assoc., as are the bearing & ring gear IDs, so no parts interchangeability. You can use the Assoc. ring gears by reaming out the ID slightly. By looking at the electric & nitro Assoc. units I'd say that other than the outdrives they are the same. I would think that you could use the Assoc. unit in both cars with a extra set of shorter outdrives for your electric car ($20.us +/-). Keep in mind that the Assoc. unit does not have a very good track record in the nitro car, the Yokomo unit has yet to fail. The Assoc. unit should be fine in the electric sedan. If your interested I have 2 new Assoc. units & 1 new Yokomo unit I'd be willing to sell. I think I could save you some cash. Thanks.

Thanks for the info....

Actually the reason i never got one for the NTC3 was due to the poor performance that the electric oneway had. I know of many that have blown them just running stock electric. So therefore i avoided it for nitro...

Perhaps you could email me with prices on your 3 units. Ill consider them. Thanks

Yokomo makes a one way for the electric one as well with the shorter outdrives, and they make replacement outdrives for both, and AE is rumored to be importing the yokes as their future part.

Speaking of electric, anyone know of a place to get chassis quality graphite? I want to make an IRS-like electric car except using NTC3 suspension and steering, you can narrow the car enough for 190 and use the plastic diffs, the single speed shaft(for electric gears); modify a pan car motor mount to fit, cut some battery slots, etc. Anyone else interested?

Try to get ahold of penguin graphite. He has realy good stuff, and if you give him a drawing on cad, he can cut it for you too. My boss and I designed our own oval chassis's to sell, and out of all the different graphite we tested the penguin stuff was the best. He was cheaper to get it cut as well.

We are selling them at 49.99 which I think is 10 above cost but on one sheet we also did nerf wings and bumpers, it helped offset the cost. We have done over 100 chassis's now and about 80 batery trays. That quantity will help bring down the cost.

My own testing with some ratios on my NTC3 with different motors revealed me that 21/27 with 48/54 spurs are much better than other combinations, now I only adjust the shifting point depending the track. Maybe depends on your track width. 20/26 can be fine for some very twisty tracks, here we have one and cars almost never shift to second.... whew! 5 minutes of real very high hearth rate.

You brits are running nitro with rubbers and foams on separate classes, what class you choosed rcruv?
