Default Cat 2000 info needed

Hi just after some cat 2000 advice, I am building a car for this years revival, I acquired two cars, an ec and An se, plan is to make one good car, and sell the other one on. What I wanted to know was one has a one way layshaft, and also had blade type driveshafts, are the blade driveshafts better than the telescopic ones? And how do people get on using a one way in these with modern electrics? I ran one in a lazer and I had to do away with it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I said Iím looking to put the desirable parts on one car, and sell the other on.

Blades are the better option. Slipper with the alloy one way is best as if you have the right layshaft you can lock it out. I run one way in both my cars

I have an EC that's the one with the telescopic drive shafts.

If you are planning on racing a Cat 2000 I recommend you keep an eye on temperatures, they are notorious for overheating. I have been racing mine recently and keep melting wires off the motor although it is a brushed motor.

Because of the way the bodyshell and under tray fix together the airflow is terrible and they just trap heat for fun.

Is it the one way roller that you have? If so, as Kev says, they have a pin hole hidden under an O ring that can lock it off. You'll know if you have the correct layshaft because it will have a hole in a corresponding place to accept a pin.

As Matt says. Standard was plastic clicker one way that can't be locked. Alloy one was a option. That has space for the pin. They launched a layshaft with an extra hole to match.

As if luck would have it, just started stripping the donor car, and it has one of those layshafts on it, what a great idea! One thing Iím after if anyone has one is an alloy front transmission housing

I would maybe keep the roll bar, I have been racing at Bury recently and my Cat grip rolled for fun. Was using mini pin yellow on the rear, mini spike yellow on the front.
