View Full Version : New E-Maxx Design suggestion

Limited slip differentials? Open rearends aren't much fun (not real 4 wheel drive) spools on the other hand are very hard on other components(axles,u-joints,tires)two small springs and eight small shims and you would have the best all around setup. Let me know what you think. I have other ideas too.

Ball differentials are the RC equivalent to limited slip differentials. There may be space limitations in the E-Maxx ring and pinion housings. It would require a pretty large ball diff to be durable enough. I'll pass the thought along to our engineers.

Take a look at some older (1972-1978) GM limited slip differentials and you'll see what I'm talking about.This should work with the setup e-maxx already has with very,very little modifications.One flat S shaped spring in the middle and two flat steel shims behind each of the side output gears.The back of the side gears would have to be machined a few thousands to make room for the shims and the front face of the side gears may need a little sufacing for a smooth contact with the small but strong spring.

Is that a good Hmmmmm or a bad Hmmmmmm?

It's a good Hmmmmmm. There may be a better way to do a "limited slip" type of differential that no one has done yet.

Maybe spools with two slipper clutchs,one behind the right front wheel and one behind the left rear wheel?

how about a torsen type diff?

That might be possible too, do you know a way to do that using most of the parts that are already in E-maxx or would you totally redesign.
