Well went racing yesterday at Ardent and still the same issue of going through Spur gears like no tomorrow and for the love of god I had no idea why ?

So with all 3 rounds run I did a max of 6 laps Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Why was it striping teeth Evil or Very Mad

well after the 3 rounds I went for a full strip down and found the problem its just some thing small that you would not think of

the POM ring gear worn down and slipping out thus the spur gear was not meshing right

So with only some Mardave diff gears in my box ( none in shop to buy ) I put on a 48 teeth 32 dp LOL so with the car ready to go I knew it may not last so in last spot in the final we are off

Wow I took 2nd . . . . . not bad Very Happy

But alas I could feel the mesh going so will it last the 2nd final . . .

back into the shop and bought 2 Mardave 50t spurs . . .

why what you thinking of now Gazza you may well ask

Well bang them into my Lathe and see if I can get them into the 3Racing diff . . . No way you all say

Well I started the project to day and done one ( pics to follow later ) then I thought of another idea about incorparting the POM ring gear onto the Mardave spur gear ? Idea ( again if it works Pic's to follow )

so 2nd leg and I managed 3rd not bad gonna sort it out and test 2moz if I have time
