I have sent Sam many emails about the kool stuff that is available for this car. I know he is sick of me by now. The quality, fit and funtion is so flawless I am constantly amazed at the stuff that keeps coming out and available. I wouls not own any other car now.........................Ron
I want to see the goodies you put on the car please.

Must be nice to see them.

I am running the TM lightweight ball diff.
Id like to know what would be the pro's and cons between the 51t and the 48t diff pulley.
I am running the the following

20t brake and side pulley
26t front side pulley

1st gear 18/52
2nd 24/46
I am running 62mm front tyres with 60mm rears.
Any suggestions or comments welcome.

Razzor,

If you notice the concept behind the new transmission is to reduce the number of rotations of the 2sp shaft.

The way to achieve this is to make larger pulleys and smaller diffs, thus reducing the internal gear ratio. If you use the larger 51t diff gear then you are going against that principal. What you will end up with by using the larger diff ring is a slower rotating rear axle. I do not think you really want that unless there is no traction at all in your track.

Again, the less the internals have to spin, the lower stress on the motor, as long as you compensate with the smaller pinions (16t, 17t for first and 21t or 22t for second). Otherwise the tranny would be extremely difficult to spin.

Suppose for a minute you really want to try the larger (51t) diff gear. If you do not change the brake pulley then you will need a longer belt and you would have massive underdrive at the rear. Then you would also need to slow down the front axle by reducing the size of the side pulley. I feel lazy to do the math, but maybe you would need a 19t brake pulley and a 18t side pulley. If you happen to change the brake pulley to 18t to allow the use of the original belt then that would make the underdrive at rear even worse. If you change to a 20t brake pulley then you would need an even longer rear belt.

So I would not go for the 51t diff.

I understand this from Dennis Richie's explanation on the Phenix clutchbell system. I hope I am making good use of your words, Motorman.

I totally favor the ED Transmission!! I cannot wait to put it in my car!!
Take off will be insanely fast!!

My 2 cents...

Thanks GTRMX get the dea although I am still using the std transmission setup on the g4s ,idea should still apply.
The std diff gear on ball diff is 48t and I should stick with that.

Is it possible to adjust the clutch spring tension without removing the bell? Maybe I'm missing something, but I assumed it would be adjustable while ready to run in the car like my old Impact.

Bell needs to be removed to adjust clutch spring tension.
I need to look at the possibility of drilling a hole to adjust like the Serpent clutch.

Thanks Razzor...I wonder if being adjustable in car is part of Serpent's patent of the Centax system. Gotta keep the lawyers happy

If you figure where to drill LMK...

Are you sure? Just about every modern push type (centax) clutch I've seen has a hole where you can adjust the tension of the spring. It would seem to be a step back with the new tranny not to have this (although I'm not too keen on needing individual clutch bells for 2nd gear)

I could be wrong, though.
