That would be awsome
I would doubt that you can put an open diff in the Yota axle. Check the exploded view on RC4WD's homepage: At least the milled version has only so much space milled out that just the spool does fit in. Could be different on the cast version.

Thanks, the lights are getting there.....slowly
Biling is a big Land Rover show. Run by Land Rover International magazine (LRO) for over twenty years at a place called Billing Aquadrome, hence being known simply as "Billing". When I say big, I mean massive! People come from across europe to be there for this three day event. It has most Land Rover related company stands there, an arena with various demonstrations, a long off-road course, camping and evening entertainment etc. Basically it's the best dirty weekend you can have and keep your cloths on

I see what you mean but it was RC4WD that told me there are Tamiya diff parts which fit just not which ones!

Well, maybe there is a misunderstanding here: Some people were meaning with "diff" simply the crown and pinion gears, no matter if mounted on a solid spool or really using a differential like in the real cars.

I thought you were referring to "the real thing" when mentioning an "open diff", which I doubt will work in a Yota axle. At least not in the billet version.

Its just that I am still searching for a real diff for my axles as well, since I would at least mount one on the front axle. So if you have any information of a Tamiya diff the size of the Yota internals, let me know!

Michael

You cant fit an open diff in the Yota axles.

Well Micha, we have our answer! Thanks Katan
There must have been a misunderstanding when I e-mailed RC4WD with the question, ah well if I can come up with a Miracle cure I will let you know

It is a pity that the translator of my PC is so clumsy with technical words, do not fully understand the problem of the axes. Are you trying to put a functional differential in a Yota?.


Actually 1 / 1 series are not lockable, is not it?.
I have a these axes, the foundry, and I have to see how narrow for my LR series.

And the question of promise, I see that the series II are 10cm narrower than the Defender. Are the 10cm plastic fenders? bodies are the same?.

Many years ago I do not see a series of close, but I think the Defender and the body (no fenders) is wider.

I have measured out my Defender and the calculator says you have to be equal.

I wont buy a new car body 90 for use as the basis for my "Santana 109." Built entirely as it may be hard work.

I will review your topic with another translator to learn good of all your problems.
Greetings.

Yes I would like to fit a functional differential in a yota axle (told this is not possible, but I will still try) Also need to narrow axle because my model is true 1/10 scale (D90 body is closer to 1/8 scale!!)

1/1 series axle is not lockable as standard

The body is the same width

My Series


A Defender


Sorry for poor picture (taken on iphone)
Difference in width is plastic fenders

Some people have used D90 body as basis for Series LR in the past. Built from scratch IS very hard work!

THANK YOU !!!!!.
I feel a lot of work with the tape measure, but as they say "a picture is worth a thousand words"

When the project starts using a body will decide whether purchased or built entirely (€). When I see your build and LR to say, "It's MY body."

The point differential.
In my 90 I see it as a big lie ...

It's good to play, but driving the R / C model loses fidelity to the real.

Cut and install a differential Yota, will be thing to see.
Viewing your work so far, I think you can achieve. (If we find good parts)
These lights give much life to the LR.
It seems like hard work.


Greetings.
