    Seeling the spartan

    So towards the end of last year, i upgraded to the wholts piano wire drive. Its nice, but obviously much smaller in diameter than the stock flex cable. Which leads to my point. How do i seel that or reduce the hole so water doesn't poor in. I tried stuffing the whole thing with greece but it only worked for like 5 minutes.
    All help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    You may have to go back to the stock shaft (or at least the diameter)
    Too much power is just enough

    You could put a Teflon liner in your stuffing tube or possibly put a bushing at the end of the shaft near the prop. Don

    Teflon liner is the worst thing to add to any high-performance (6S+) boat.

    It causes the cable to kink from the friction and explode. If running say 4S or less it won't matter because it won't generate enough friction to matter.

    So get a bushing for the end of the drive shaft before it goes to the strut? Also, im running a wire drive. Does that really have that much friction? And where does one get a bushing to fit the wire. It is .078 in. Diameter i think. Its from jeff wholts.

    Would the .078 wire fit in the .098 teflon liner? Thats the closest size i can find on OSE.
