    recieved my motor mount today and install it, then come across that i have to put spacer to lift the motor up its hitting the mount and i put spacer to move the motor a bit forward and file the chassis a bit to get the exact mesh. here are the pics.

    Yeah, don't you hate that? I just bought that same mount for a friend'd Revo. His will have a 36mm motor which is nearly 6mm less, but from the pics, it looks like spacers will still be required. This makes me wonder what size motor did that company design the mount for. I would think anything smaller than 36mm is too small to be worth converting a Revo 3.3 for.

    i think after market company need second opinion from us before they put this in the market, lol. all and all i'm very satisfied , it runs just as fast or maybe even faster when i have the plastic chassis before. i geared it 20t/36t and the first time i gun it, it did a back flip, did'nt expect that to happen cause with the plastic chassis geared at 20t/40t it only lift the front end.

    are you going to run the ride height that low?
    might try the middle hole on the push rods..

    Dude you do some of the cleanest work out there. I love seeing your trucks. I know I said it once already, but but but......

    I'd love to see a running video......

    When I saw your battery tray, I was going to suggest making it so that the battery mounts as far forward as possible. It won't stop the wheelies, but it will delay them. I haven't seen the top speed of mine for the same reason.

    If you design it differently, no screws will be needed at all. Seach for Oomp's 2nd gear lock. I'm going to design one and try to get a friend to machine it for me since oomp has made it clear that he's not going to make and sell them.

    i thinking of getting the summit rear a-arms, it will extend my wheelbase a few mm back plus a wheelie bar, that should plan it to the ground.

    i think i've seen that mod, almost the same as that guy posted on #20 second gear lockout.

    Are they more swept back than the adjustable rear arms Part# 5328? That's what I have on mine.

    awesome build man! youve inspired me to do a conversion as well.
    Does anyone make/sell that aluminum piece to lock into 2nd gear full time?
    Thanks

    i could only throttle it at 75% or it will flip over. tire are balloning real bad so its not helping me either.

    anyone here ever use the aluminum slipper clutch pads? thats what i have on right now and it stipped my input gear with only 3 runs and if i loosen it, it makes alot of grinding noise. good thing i have a replacement gear. i guess i'll stop by at the LHS to pick up the stock slipper clutch pads.

    That is the nitro trans correct, one of my friends has a mod'd 3.3 & he strip trans gears way to often. A BL trans usually doesn't have this prob. IDk what he did but he upgraded something, sorry no help..

    yep, maybe i put too much stress to it when i gear it 20t/36t, i dont know? i went back to 14t/40t and thats when i stripped it. i can replace my input gear with mod1 18t pinion cause i have a 2nd gear wide ratio 18t/38t. if i can successfully build me that adapter for my 2nd gear lock out i can use the mod1 spur 38t. i'll post a picture of it when i get it done so that you guys know what i'm talking about.

    you can never say, you never crash your truck real bad and expect alot of spending and fixing it, lol. just the other day it was getting dark and decided to do some speed run down the street and on its 3rd pass one glimps and thats all it takes to smack my truck at the rear of my parked car, the impact sound really bad that all this broken part list scroll down thru my head, lol. amazingly when i pulled it out, its still in one piece with no sign of broken a-arms or bent push rods/toelinks, etc... but upon further investigation, i found the broken part, my MMM esc case was cracked and the fan is destroyed along with the fin that looks like they were comb down. i manage to straightened the fins up now. ESC still works OK when i plug the lipo back in, beeps 4 times like it should for 4s and tone after that. i order the replacement case with fan off ebay for $10 something. i guess i got away this time on the expensive fix.

    i was tinkering it tonight and did some changes, move things around. i dont want this to happen to my esc again so i made a tray for it to mount it more lower and move the battery tray forward.
    this is how it was before

    to now



    it looks much better.

    If we assume perfect traction (no tire spinning) upon acceleration, increasing the pinion size or lowering the spur size will produce LESS stress on the the input gear teeth since torque to the input shaft will be reduced. It's just more work (and thus more heat) for the motor. So, you were doing your tranny and axles a favor with the 20/36t, while reducing wheelies and obtaining higher speed. I saw stress marks on all the teeth of the input gear with the 38/18 spur/pinion. I changed to 36/18, but it was too late, the gear went south due to the damage already done. I'm going to give 36/19 a try. I'm also installing Robinson's steel 13/18 input gears. I figured $22 bucks for a drop-in was better than $10 for a steel pinion and having to deal with getting it fixed to the input shaft in the right spot.

    Your new config with the battery up front should be better to help that front end stay down. This is very similar to how it would be configured using the SCTE battery tray. I just install one on the build I'm doing now for my buddy, except your battery is much lower.

    Well, I actually installed it today and found out that the tooth profile of the RR input gears do not match the stock plastic gears. With the stock tranny (FOC, no first gear on the 2-speed shaft, and clutch locked to the 2nd gear) loose in your hand, you can snap spin the input shaft and the it will turn about 10 times before is stops. The tranny is butter smooth. With the RR input gears, the mesh is tight. It spins nearly 0 turns with a snap spin...and that's if you can snap spin it without your fingers slipping off. I ran it on a corded drill for about 15 minutes. That seemed to help. I can get 1 or two spins on it. I'm now running it for an additional 15 minutes at a higher speed. I'll open the tranny up and blow out the plastic dust that I'm sure will be in there and slap it back on the truck. She won't be as effecient now. Oh, well...at least it will run...until the next weak point is discovered.

    wait, are you saying that the pitch of the input gear did'nt match the rest of the internal gear? internal tranny gears are mod one or 24 pitch and i would assume that since RR made this input gear for revo that they should match? to my understanding that if your second gear has 38t and to mesh it right, you have to get the 18t input gear.

    Nice build! It looks cleaner than most of the other builds out there!
    YEA haven't seen a good 3.3 BL conversion in awhile. You know the die hard Nitro guys cringe every time they see one of their own converted....Teheheee
    And you guys wonder why I hate reading threads like these... JK!

    Awesome build! I have a 3.3 and was thinking about converting it, but was worried about the price. You did a great job customizing everything to fit.
    A few questions
    Are those the nitro diffs? Did you lock the transmission in one gear? Where did you get the esc and motor from and how much were they? Also last thing, how does it drive?

    Thanks

    wow...is the chassis of the revo better than that plastic e-revo?...was thinking about that a carbon fiber chassis...and a conversion kit...and then transfer all the stuff on my e-revo over to the new chassis...what do u guys think?...i just want a stronger body than the plastic it has now...

    how much did the parts cost u?...just want to get an idea of how much this is going to set me back...
