Here's the new billet aluminum spool and the new driveshaft. I also had a spare billet spool and 3 spare driveshafts made as well. This way I can build a spare car. The car is finished all the way now and just getting to the testing is where it's at.

LOL, man I have been asked by a few of my local racers on a build but man I am exhausted from this one and it aint even proven yet.

THANKS for reminding me/us that it is a SHAFT DRIVE and not a direct drive as people keep asking me about my direct drive that I am building. It is indeed a 2-speed SHAFT drive is what I keep reminding them.

Thanks Brian. The diff case is an OFNA from the CD3 car BUT I made my own all billet aluminum spool since the one-way that is offered by OFNA is a 15/64" hole and I need a hole the size of 1/4". I tried to make the one-way bearing bigger by drilling it but that just tore the bearing up.

You got any pics of your projects.

thanks for the reply... lol...

funny you should ask about my projects... I'm far from new to RC hobbies been playing into it for over 25yrs (I'm 44) I've done on road , off road, boats, planes...and for the past few years RC Rock Crawling.... but never RC Drag Racing, I always thought it looked awesome.... just never had any time to fit that one in... But I do love drag racing, in the winter off and on for 15yrs I've been 1/24 Slot Car drag racing and just over this past summer a new local slot track has opened... so I been racing there pretty regular.... a couple guys there talk about the RC Drags at Trax 70 (I'm about 40mins from there) so i think I need to build something... and I've always like to hand build as much as I can so your post caught my eye... my comp crawlers are all hand build for the most part... what i'm going to build I dont know, but I'm sure at first it will be something to bracket race, that more or less what I build for the slot drags... anyway i have babbled on long enough thanks again for the reply... I'm sure I'll have many questions for you in the future...

here are some of my builds

crawler chassis design and build






drag slot car builds

Man you aint THAT much older than me. I'm the big 41 myself and actually drag race a 1:1 Mustang coupe that has made 1177 RWHP on a chassis dyno so the RC stuff was an instant hit for me and I understand the challenges.

I really like the late model Camaro with the twin turbos on it. You've definately got the skills to make a very good drag chassis that for sure. If you ever need anymore information on my particular build, just let me know.

well here's a video of the 2-speed shaft car running in my driveway. Nothing special at all, just a maiden voyage at home.
