air8, I took a rough measurement, I didn't want to take both cars apart...... It looks like the Losi center diff is 8-9mm shorter than the Kyosho 2-speed.

You can try the Thunder Tiger two speed. I know that it is shorter but I don't know if it will fit in a Losi. It does fit in a RC8 center so it is smaller than OFNA or Kyosho. I will check the lengh between the bearing and post it so you have a better idea.

Huh? I didn't know TT had a two speed that would fit an 8th scale car. I'm looking that up now.

If all these two speeds are longer than we need, then we need a shorter shaft for the rear. Maybe some Kyosho driveshafts are shorter than the 8T shafts. It doesn't look like the 8 buggy shafts would be long enough.

Ya know, I just might have a buddy whip up a chassis and just lay stuff out right. LOL. I'll BS with him and see what he thinks.

Ok I went to the LHS and the Thunder Tiger 2 speed was not assembled so all I could measure was the main shaft. It measures 55mm without the outdrives. It looks very short compared with the OFNA. Hope this helps you out.

I have a friend interested in whipping up a chassis to at least get things rolling. I just need to decide what 2-speed to run, the diff mounts, and what gearing to start with. We have a ball-park guess but anyone have suggestions? Like should we use the Losi truggy ring and pinion, or the Losi buggy ring and pinion?

Ok so since rules require a stock chassis we stopped working on the custom chassis plate. So with that, does anyone know where to find the bearing size for the thunder tiger 2-speed? I have the two speed on the way but need the extra parts to go with it. I'm hoping we can just make a top plate and use the Losi center diff mounts.

I can't find where the parts list is on thunder tigers' web site. So I'm hoping smeone can post up where the size or part number is for the TT bearing size.

Thanx

At the moment it depends on whose rules you are going by. If you run the Ipanema series races, I do not think the chassis will matter as long as it has the same kick up as the stock chassis. Roar is still putting together rules at this time, so I would check with them.
Serpent and Mugen both make 2 speeds that are very compact in length. You might be able to fit one of those two speeds between the stock diff bulkheads. Of course you will probably need to move the tank forward for a clutch bell with 2 gears on it. It just continues from there.
I bet if you ask Team Losi about a 2 speed, they will just smile. They could be working on something already. The Late model dirt oval racer is over half way to where you need to be. A stretched chassis would easily allow for a two speed. Then you could use all the cool Kyosho and Ipanema bodies.

The big kicker is the buggy style bent chassis plate. Ofna got grand fathered in according to Jeff for his race series. Its not really a buggy based car (I know thats up for debate so don't flame me on it!)

Steve Pond is the one to ask about Roar. I think he is creating the rules as I type. Jspeed is Ipanema, ask him about his series.

Default 2 speed

Yep I put a mugen 2 speed in an ofne dm1. It's very short. I used a solid shaft out of a ofna gtp as it's hardened.
