I have just installed a front one-way and rear ball diff into my MA010 after running with the kit gear diffs since buying the car second hand.
The gear mesh for both the front and back is just terrible. I've done a lot of on-road racing with 1/10th scale and I know what a bad mesh sounds like and this is definitely it. It's like a coffee grinder (ok, slight exaggeration)
However, I'm at a loss as to how I could possibly get the diff gears to mesh better. I've read elsewhere that you can use shims, but I'm not sure where they should go to make a difference. Can anyone help me out? How can I get my MA010 to run silky smooth?
I've actually tried this to kill 95% of that horizontal diff "wobble" and move the spur gear away from the pinions for a lighter mesh on my ball diffs. It sounds and feels the same to me, but hopefully in a long run this could prove its worth.
