madforce driveline?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have a madforce and I have been moding it like crazy very fun truck now, but I am having some problems with the front centershaft, has anyone tried anything out of the ordinary, custom chasis makes finding the right length very hard, any ideas would be appreciated the problem I am having is the diff shaft is bigger than anyone elses by 2millimeters,or if the dia. is right the length is way off, I know I will have to mod, but want to keep it to a minimum, for ease of replacment parts.

I'm pretty sure the mad force has solid driveshafts so I'm not sure if maxx/revo parts would work, but maybe I'm wrong

I have a mad force with a PRP 0.27 on-board . This thing is sick. I Eat the Giga force for dinner. If your Mad force is flipping over doing wheelies you obviously have no idea how to adjust your engine for a nice linear throttle response. Nor do you know how to drive it.
I live in Beijing. My Mad forrce has been the fastest truck at every meet we have had. It will pull a wheelie in third gear, but you don't have to if it is controllable. If your engine is either "on or off" you need to reseach a liitle more. I have an unidirectionall valve on the pressure tu be. It has added to throttle control greatly .
Forced induction is a waste of time on a 2-cycle e ngine, but having a higher fuel prssure is not. It  shoves the fuel hard, and has shown a huge inprov ement in response and throttle control.
I took the the unidirectional valve from the pollution control system of a FORD Esort. This requires a readjustment of you engine, but it will work better. And run cooler.
I am making an electric fuel pump to go beyond this pressure even further. I have had impressive results. Has anyone else tried this?

Beijing Madforce

To the person above that wants to lengthen the Mad force: I used the drive shaft form my Pro Racing Raptor to get another 1.25in on the rear. It was the only way to keep this thing from flipping over every time i hit the throttle. The Raptor is junk, but the engine is great. Narrow power band, but powerful.

The weather here is very cold, but if you live in Canada it is probably colder there. I come from PEI, not so cold, but a lot of snow.

Sorry about the attitude on the last post, but I had a few brews.

I have modified almost every piece of my Mad force without once buying expensive propagande driven garbage. I have a lot of time on my hands though. That combined with an almost unhealthy obsession results in a lot of tried, and more often than not, failed ideas. But the ones that work make it all worth while.

I just helped my Chinese girlfriend build an Ultima ST with the engine out of my old Mad force. Goes like snot. Have to keep a bag of gears on hand though. Just drive off the third gear and it works great( 20 teeth instead of thirteen).

If anyone is having trouble with any of the infinite number of design flaws built into the madforce I woulld be happpy to try to help.

Unlike Canada, it is quite normal to have almost as many girls involved as guys. Very refreshing change.

30% in everything.
