New diff case and the 2x6 screws still won't grab, so will try some of the Tamiya 2x8 screws as they are easy for me to get. I'm so sick of this!!

Now have the longer screws in and looks heaps better. I am also not running the e-clips to hold the outdrives in. I found there was some binding in the diff and thought the e-clips were slightly too big and were rubbing on the gears. Taking them off and reassembling the diff made it extremely smooth. I've inserted some fuel line into the other side of the outdrive so that the drive shafts hold the outdrives in firmly. Anyway, alot smoother diff and will probably take the e-clips off my front diff as thats abit notchy.

Anyone else removed the e-clips?

Sounds risky but let us know if it works out for you.

There is one thing which could stuff this up. If the diff is spaced too wide with the gasket, it will allow the side gears to move out and not seal against the o-ring which could leak fluid from the diff. Depending on the weather, I may give it a test run this afternoon.

A tank of gas through the car showed no problems with not having the e-clips. They are a real pain to get on as well, so makes the job of changing gears so much easier. Hopefully I'll have a race day tomorrow if the weather is ok and will post results.

Not that you change gears often (I have done once in 18months and that was only due to stock screws pulling out from impacts rear with boards)

Intereting find though , well done..

I've just added a Tamiya servo saver to the CD3, (screwed the stock saver down solid + made part so its all alloy). I never had a problem till I had a bad run one week snapping the only plastic part of the servo saver twice (maybe wrong adjustment - I know it was bad driving). Should be ok now - as long as the Tamiya one is up to it.

I've had the car 2 months and am on my 2nd set. Should be sorted now thou and hopefully don't need to replace for sometime. I'm amazed at how cometitive I've been with the car even thou it hasn't been running right.

Nationals in 3 weeks and all I want is a top 10 finish.

A friend of mine was disqualified after he won 2nd place at ORIS WILLIAMS F1 RACE back here in Jakarta. The reason is CD3 fuel tank capacity is 80cc
