Perhaps Patrizio will offer magnesium bulkheads for the CO2 with the plastic inserts sometimes in the future; we used the magnesium bulkheads in our CO1, and we never experienced any cracks in them.

The CO2 use plastic eccentrics for the rear diff though, and they are meant to dampen vibrations.

Kindest regards,

The magnesium bulkheads fit the C02, this part hasn't changed.
With the Magnesium bulkheads I would advice to check the bearings very regularly since they are very small for the amount of loads they have to take.
The standard bearings also fit the magnesium bulkheads but this is not advisable as the bearings will eat away the magnesium very quickly.

In generally I would advice to check the two speed axle bearings regularly, especially the one on the gearbox side, together with the clutch bearings these are the most stressed bearings on the car.
I actually prefer ceramic bearings for the two speed axle and clutch, these are a lot more durable.

Regarding the two speed screws coming loose, make sure you don't over tighten them. There is very little material left for holding down the screws so they strip quite easily. Once you have overtightened them your spur will wobble or the screws come undone. To be sure you can also add a drop of ca glue in the spur gear before tightening the screws.

for DS..
I read you use ceramic bearings... from which brand?
I'm thinking to get a set of them but I don't know what to choose..there are many and I don't want to throw away money to buy a set that run worst than a steel set.
Do anyone has feedback on the ABEC35 ones?

Thank you

Last year I bought a set of Abec35 bearings but after one day of practice most of them were ruined. They felt very free when I build the car and I had everything shimmed out nicely. It might have been a bad batch or something but they were done within one day and never got a replacement set so I'm pretty much done with the abec35 bearings.
I've heard from others they were very pleased with them though.

After the abec's I got a set of Capricorn ceramic bearings which lasted the rest of the season but didn't feel as smooth as the abec ones. But they lasted without any maintenance so I think they are good.

For this year I'm getting a set of Acer racing bearings, I've heard nothing but good things about those so I thought it was interesting to give them a try.
Plus they give a full kit of bearings, not just the drivetrain bearings.

No, it comes with the standard "full" two speed shaft. I also believe the lightweight two speed shaft isn't available anymore.
If you want to save even more driveline weight I can recommend the aluminum clutch bell set. It will increase the acceleration quite a bit.

BOCA BEARINGS yellow seal are maintance free and you can forget about them. Very good and very durable. All my engines and cars run their ceramics.

The stock bell weighs 7,1 grams and the aluminum bell weighs 3,0 grams.

You only need the black clutch shoe with aluminum bell (available as a set) to ensure best performance and best lifespan of both parts.
For the 1/8 aluminum bell you will also need the V2 pinions.

The problem was caused by us, by not making sure that the spurs were 100% tight against the other surface. We now put the 2 speed housing against something flat and tap the spur down on it to make it tight. More often than not we find that the screws need to be tighten up a bit more after tapping them down. But we also keep an eye on the screws, and inspect it every time that we take the spurs off the car.

Kindest regards,
Lars.
Now I'm worried.. LOL

Sorry Lars, you are correct, I was looking at the front's... Luke's has dad covered

The LAB C02 comes with the same clutch as on the CO1 which is metal bell and red shoe, the new swaybar is also an optional not included in the kit,it comes with the regular blade swaybar.

Default Home track - Capricorn RC Australia

So for those in the northern hemisphere dealing with the cold, something to tease you into visiting the home of motorsport in Australia.
