Mostly the diff also plays a role in gearing down the engine revs. The gear driving the diff then has less teeth then the diff crown gear for instance. In buggies this ratio is often around 3:1

I do have a manual with numbers near the parts, and with a chart on the next page, you can combine numbers with part names. Would that help?

Ah, direct link is not supported I see. On the 404 page, click "rc manuals" and then "car and trucks".

ahhh i see now. they have some sort of cookie so that you cant see the pdf unless you find it on their page first. now your link works and the one from my last post.

EDIT: just attached what i wanted out of it as a pic for anyone else.

Glad it worked now. Be sure to check other brands manuals as well, as some tend to use different descriptions, so you get more aquainted with those differences.

3 bearings holding the wheel axle? Is the car going to be that heavy? Otherwise, extra bearings, even though these runs smooth, will add extra friction.

true. dropping the third will make that caster mount easier too :P

A-Arm test with a temp block to hold the arms. still need to tinker with the caster->A-arm connections, but its looking pretty good (to me)

Do you have the blocks angled or vertical? On competition buggies often the angle is altered for better handling. Do you have a car with you to occasionally have a peek at?
