Default PR S1v3 FM VERY basic questions from a beginner

Hi Guys,

I'm like a fish out of water and have gone in the deep end and purchased a few second hand PR S1v3 Buggies (one built and one as a roller) that I hope to strip rebuild over winter to run at a local club in 21.

These are the first RC cars I've purchased since about 1990(!)

So,

I'm trying to find out as much as I can about what they are and both are FM versions and have different option parts etc on them.

My aim is too get one working car from them both using the better parts and then having the other as spares etc.

MY questions will be posted here.

But I've stumbled at the first step

SORTED - Chassis #1 has a diff that if you turn a back wheel - the other wheels rotates backwards.
SORTED - Chassis #2 has a diff that both wheels rotates forwards.

Can anyone identify/tell me what this means and what they are best used for?

New question - what’s the difference with the 2 rear ends in the thread below - the rear shock mount can be placed eitherside of the mounting plate (motor side) or Diff side?

Thanks.

IJM

Hello, and welcome back!

One that turns in the opposite direction is a gear diff. They have oil in that you can change the weight of to alter how the car reacts on track. Normally used in high grip situations like carpet and dry astro.

One where they turn the same way is a ball diff. The pressure on balls can be adjusted using a hex or screw in one of the outdrives - you will see this if you remove the drive shaft. Normally used in low grip conditions like wet astro, dirt, wet grass.

Just to add, it sounds like the previous owner had a wet car and a dry car that he could use either depending on conditions.

Thanks for your input.

The two chassis's however are from different parts of the country - but what you have said makes sense.

So,

I've got different rear ends on the 2 chassis (and a spare one)

Should the rear shock mount be motor side or diff side of the mounting plate?

Or is it moved when running inboard or out board shocks?

Both are running inboard shocks - but one has the mount motor side - one has it diff side.

Thanks,

IJM

If you are after any PR spares 6Kracing is where you need to head.
They are the official UK distributor, Gareth the owner is sound so if you get stuck give 6K an email or call.
If you ever get stuck at the track come chat to any of the 6K lads, and we will try and help
