DRB steering...

Postby Crankhank » Wed Dec 08, 2010 12:54 pm

Hi Foks!

This monday my DRB arrived from japan. Holy moly... what a nice thing. Looks live a lot more cool! ;)

But after building that wonderful driftpiece, the problems came in to my house. I haven`t changed any setup. Only the springs, but that shouldn`t change nothing.
If i accelerate and start steering, that noise (sounds like cracking) gets louder and louder with every degree of steering. I greased the bones and put the 45,5mm cvd`s on the front. Just like it`s written in the instruction manual.

So what can or should i do, to get an silent DRB. Soon my 1.8 FCD will arrive with my one-way. Then i`ll start drifting CS with that hot ride. I need every degree i can get! :D

Thanks for every usefull answer.

Mby you had expirienced something like that too, and how would i solve the problem? :(

BTW the chassis is really amazing runing on FCD2.0 and on carpet and its riding like heaven... :)


Ok I'll continue my problem on my own topick. Today got the shims reduced the play of front differential, greases the CVD like never before puted all together and hoped that I can go full lock steering but no, the freaking sound remains it feels like the CVD cant handle that much angle and I'm really pissed (sorry for that) can't think what else I can do... Question for Katsumi and Daniel, in front you put the 45,5mm CVD and rear 44mm CVD's?

Give me some advice before I do something bad to myself... :(

*EDIT: reassembled both CVD and found out that one of front CVD's is defective and now will try to replace it by warranty. Will keep you up to date.

I was gonna wait till i try it first but i wont anymore.

Overdose RC parts will fit in DRB.

OVERDOSE
OD1025 Extreme Counter Drift 44mm Drive Shaft Set for HPI TC-D

OVERDOSE
OD1031 Dual Oneway Cup Joint

Is required along with Yokomo BD-640W one-way.

It may need some shimming but it works and it will most likely take away the vibration.

And Fabio, your wheel hits because it's low off-set.

Hi Foks,

yesterday some stuff from Japan arrived. Now i got some new springs, the Yokomo one-way and the 1.8 FCS counter dori dori. ;)

After the first testrun in the kitchen, it works and it`s less vibrating.

But i`ll look for some overdose parts. Where can i get them?

Sorry for double post.

Even better, new part from Overdose RC:

OD1039 44mm
OD1040 45.5mm

No need for outdrive from OD and thus can use with diff, spool, one-way whatever.

spec-r make cvds for bd5 which fit, but have a feeling they're 45.5mm.... no time to search to check tho, sorry... check their website =)

i have a set somewhere at home, but found the standard yokomo 44mm cvd's to be better... no way to check them, as working in new Caledonia right now - dont get back til 24th, but leave again on 3rd...

make sure your front bearing covers sit evenly on the bulkheads. I had this problem before, and reseated the diff and the problem went away. I forgot what it's called but you know the cover that goes over the differential bearings with holes to seat inside the bulkhead? If they're not even on both side, you will get a cracking sound at throttle. Hope that helps!

Thanks man, i make sure that point.
The vibration were minimized by a one-way. But after shimming some parts of the Chassis, there ain`t not a real vibrating anymore.

Now that ride is close to silent and smooth drifting.

Thanks to all for ya help!
