Guys my neu 2650kv motor has a 1/8'' cut off the shaft , do you think that will affect anything when installing into the slash 4x4 ? like clearence issues or anything of that sort - Thanks

Shove some 6s lipos in there..........that would be a sight

the neu motor shaft is nominally larger, but, i was looking at the rc car action feature they did with the new slash 4x4, and it looks to me like the pinion sits very close to the motor anyway. So i don't think it's gonna be an issue at all. it looks to me like you could easily take an 1/8 " off the shaft and still have plenty of space.
matter of fact, i just looked at it again, and the pinion is sitting atleast 1/8 off the shaft in the pic. you'll be fine.

if by some odd chance it doesn't fit, (and i really think it will) you can always use a tekno pinion from impaktrc. they are made longer for their custom 1/8 conversions.
Also, another solution would be to get a novak bore reducer...that will also elongate the shaft.

you might just need to put the pinion on backward to fit.
(i actually originally thought it was supposed to be backward, it came like that on my RC18T)
