Default Differential gears

hi guys,
when do you know that the differential gears need to be replaced?
will them ever wear-out?

Yeah they will wear. Like anything that gets subjected to the abuse diffs do then they will wear. But if you shim them accordingly then you should last a while. When you do diff maintenance have a look at the gears and you can see where the gears fit into eachother and you should see a slightly worn area where the teeth meet. Sometimes you can see actual chunks out of the teeth (crashing into walls at high speeds will do this). But in a nutshell over time they will need replacing it's just your budget that dictates when.

I just bought some clutch gear but i'm not sure which ones to use. There were five springs black,silver,yellow,orange and red. They are all roughly the same thickness (give or take 0.1mm) but they are all different lengths. It also came with the white shoe and the brown shoe from k-factory.

So my question is what combination do i use I have red (hard) and stock (black) throw weights and i have a stock (black) shoe aswell. And how many slugs do i use?

Can someone please help me.

Thanks

With what you have, i'd use the yellow spring, (brown) red shoe and red throw weights - depending on how you like the clutch to engage, try 0.7 spring pre load and experiment with 2 slugs, 1 slug or no slugs ( less slugs make the clutch take longer to engage )

The white shoe is good, but has very little slip so you have to have the pre-load , slugs etc etc just right otherwise the engine will bog down.

The red shoe bites almost as hard but easier to set up if you know what i mean......in either case, they are far better than the kit black shoe.

See if you can get hold of the "push type" throw weights and hardware - they transform the clutch

I read an issue of racing lines yesterday and for the first time i saw advertisments for Team Magic all the way through it for the G4+, G4js, M8 buggy and even the E4 so it's good to see TM are spreading the word in OZ. surely this is a good thing I am seeing an increase of interest for the G4 at my local track so maybe it's working and why shouldn't it? Parts are easy to get NOW (thanks to www.zauberimports.com), the cars are fast and most importantly of all they look good so i can't see why you wouldn't want one

Hi Luis,

I'm about to order the CRF square clutch spring do you recommend it or should i stick with the yellow spring?

Also what's the difference between the UFO1-UFO2? Is it just the material?

I'm going to do a clutch over haul tonight seems as though it's pouring rain and i can't drive it

PS: That link you posted in the last message to me doesn't seem to work have you got another one because i'm confused as i thought i had a "push type" clutch

The CRF spring is awesome.

UFO1 Vs UFO2, I think the difference is the flywheel ( but don't quote me on that) - Patto ?

The new clutch set up does away with the "UFO" part and the 3 small fly weights.

It is just like the Kyosho 3D clutch)( 3 flyweights, aluminium spacer, clutch shoe ) except you have a provision for 1 slug in each flyweight.




Since switching over to this setup, I have a far move even wearing clutch shoe, but these weights are heavier and thus require a harder spring ( CRF works the best so far )
