That wear is accellerated by having the diff set too stiff. It's because the diff pulley becomes fixed to the left outdrive when you tighten the adjuster.

Ah, removing the dimple? Yes. Done that before but like what you say, you can only use it for one or two days and then the dimple comes back even worse than before. I guess the more "play" the dogbones have in the outdrive because you grind out the dimple, the easier the dogbone pins form more dimples. So you ultimately need to change them.

Right you are.

But what use is the diff when you cannot set it stiff?

Good one!! looks like xray diff is the one that is truly externally adjustable and working flawesly. Slip externally adjustable on Serpent.. no comment on this one

Sorry. Don't have that kind of precision machining tool to do that.
I actually just added a new set of "slots" to my rear diff. It was very easy...I only used a dremel with a cutting disc. It turned out very well.

I also exchanged the pins in my dogbones with a longer ones that become flush with the outside of the cups on the diff. I am expecting them to wear (dimple) much less.

I have not track tested these changes yet, however.

I wish they would just make some spring steel diff halves..
I also wish serpent-usa would finally get in some 801214 pro wheel axles.

Oh yes, you remind me of Goldfinger 808220 (new black color) shaft that has its pin loosen itself on use.

But someone here mentioned that Serpent is coming back to source from Hudy. That`s a good thing

Ok, I'll try and recycle mine...

Excellent idea. I had thought of doing the same. Well, credit to you, Arun. You always have the wildest of ideas !

BTW, do you know how long the pins should be to get it to flush with the outdrive? I believe the pin is 2.5 mm diameter if I'm not wrong...

Pay more attention if you are using the new 808220 (new black color). The pins is tends to loose itself.

So this is the original flyweight mod , but you are just adding the extra hole and two set screws? What were the differences you noted between the original, unweighted flywheel mod and weighted flywheel mod. Honestly I have never really had a problem with my clutch setup. Not once has it hung or not engage, but I would like to experiment with this modification.

Yes. One M3x4 set screw on each of the 2 holes per flyweight. Total 6 set screws used as per Pyramid's picture.

Well, for those looking for every inch of performance benefit, you may want to try it. Some times, you would not realise what you're missing until you try it. It may or may not work for you.

In my case, I noted that the clutch grab even harder. Noticeable 15 to 20 feet after launch.
