    I'm saying the tooth shape is different, as if RR and Traxxas use different pressure angles.

    After running in the tranny on a work bench, things improved some, but it is no where near as butter smooth as with all traxxas plastic gears.

    thanks dude
    my diffs are from E-REVOs and yes the tranny are lock on 2nd gear. i bought my MMM off EBAY chop shop, at that time it was $275 shipped. this thing is awesome to drive, handles good, wheelies on demand.
    heres a pic of 2nd gear lock-out

    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

    i find it more rigid than the plastic. when i pop whellies on the plastic chassis it twist and rock back and forth, this chassis is pretty solid i dont see any movement. you can do carbon fiber chassis except you cant mess around with it unless you really want to,(what i'm saying is that its too expensive to mess with it, lol). yes you can do carbon chassis + conversion (tekno)and be done with it.

    i have pretty much all the stuff that i needed to complete the build, all i did was transfer my MMM system to the assembled REVO chassis and oohh i did buy the electric motor mount $25 and summit suspension $12 + shipping.

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

    u know...if u want to try something different...and believe me...i'm seriously thinking of it...get a carbon fiber molding kit...make a mold of the e-revo body...per se something like this...

    http://youtu.be/VodfQcrXpxc

    and once u perfect it...u can churn out carbon fiber chassis left and right...perhaps much easier than milling out aluminum?...i dunno...but dang it...i really really want to try it...(just not enough time)

    I have a Tenko kit. It's a clean installation and I really like the motor mount, but I don't like how far the battery sits. The battery tray is also quite shallow. The kit also places an aluminum monut high on the tranny case. A 150A ESC is not the lightest component in the world. so basically, I'm not happy with their weight distribution. On the new build I just finished on another truck, I used an SCTE battery tray. With minor modifications to the chassis and tray, it fits great. The battery is much further forward and it provides a place for the ESC. I will have pics of this build soon.

    OK, got my truck running again gear at 14t/38t and still cant open the throttle wide without lifting my front end up in the air, even though that i move the battery forward. so i lower the pinion back to 13t and i can open the throttle all the way but its a bit scarry and i think its due to my tires balloning up bad, i need a street tires for this speed run LOL. its funny cause when i have my ERBE chassis before, i can open the throttle all the way and not have to worry about lifting the front end up in the air (sure the tires are balloning but still controllable) and thats with the same tires and the same lipo batts but the gearing is different i have 20t/40t the (same mod one by the way).

    quick question for u...can u push or roll your revo-e without it binding up or clicking or stuttering...

    i haven't powered mine up yet...but it doesn't roll smoothly when i push on it...the transmission seems to be binding and locking up...is this normal?...

    my erbe doesn't do this...i wonder if it's the metal gears that's in the tranny...well i know it's the metal gears in the tranny cos the noise is coming from the tranny not the spur gear...just wondering if this is normal...

    It's not rolling smooth because of the magnets in the mamba motor.

    oh really?...so that is normal and not some sort of binding?...i'm surprise it does that...it's a brushless motor...aren't those things suppose to be smooth?...my velineon and ********* motor doesn't do that...that's weird.

    yes it's normal.If you take the motor and spin the shaft you can feel the resistance.

    its totally normal your motor have so much resistance that when you roll it, it stutter, specially that the motor is 4 pole, those magnet are super strong that you can hardly spin the shaft with your hand, i agree with slowrider998

    its actually holding up pretty good man, yes i did the same loosened the slipper clutch too, i have the HD slipper clutch and once its warm up it just grab at any throttle i put it on. i change my 3 roundheaded screws thats holding the 2nd gear lockout to a flathead screws and flush it evenly with the aluminum clutch.

    most if not all the brushless motors have some good resistance i know my hobbywing xerun does. i tried it today and checked that again and there was resistance there before i ran mine.

    Great glad to hear the trannny mods are holding up to brushless power.I went with 2 allen cap screws then threaded the plastic hole.Epoxied the cetrifical clutch open.
    Your build came out awesome man !!
    Ive done the same but used most of the techno kit.So thankyou for posting your build with pics!
    Cheers man

    my wheelie bar came in the mail along with the wing, still waiting for my black blast wheels/phaltline tires<---its not preglued by the way, and extended rear a-arms. i'm also going to order a PL slipstream to complete it.

    your welcome IvVaum, you bought something thats worth every penny, for sure.

    i recieve some more part today, my hpi blast wheels and extended rear a-arms, installed it in no time and wow its about the same as my summit wheelbase now. take a look:
    with extended on

    with the stock on

    P2 rockers on with no issue rubbing with the axles

    and my blast wheels with the extended a-arms on top

    still waiting for the phaltline tires

    few more pix with my summit

    Pick up some good gear grease for those. They're going to be very loud unless greased heavily.

    My concern with that is cracking the tranny casing or exploding your differentials. I'd personally use a plastic spur to help keep the breaking point cheap.

    definately stay with plastic spur, i dont bash this truck, its more of a speed runner and i think the stock plastic gear inside develop so much heat and stress from going to fast that it shread into pieces.

    Seemed to have a bit moe snap with the lighter plastic gears.Alot less wheelie prone running the rr gears.Front wheels bite in better too.

    first gear is too much torque to begin with and that you end up fixing it more than playing with it. locking it on 2nd gear tame it abit and more controllable.
