    All aluminum, how do you like the center diff? First impressions?

    I have yet to try the center diff but I don't have any 2s lying around. I ordered a FLM aluminum center diff housing from rcmonsters but I'm not sure if their inventory is up to date. I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere else.


    I finally ran it a bit in the driveway for 5 minutes to adjust the steering and found that the motor is overheating. I didn't even go past 1/4 throttle since I didn't have the room for it. I know nothing is binding and my mesh isn't tight. I'll have to take it apart tomorrow and see what is causing it.

    Well it turns out that the overheating issue was my fault. I made the mistake of cutting the motor wires shorter without checking the Internet first. Each strand of the copper winding is coated with lacquer and I didn't clean it up when I soldered it the first time around. I was only running the motor with less than half of the windings being used. My friend was able fix it and solder it properly and was able to run it with great results. The high Kv motor is fast (just like I expected) and runs cool as a 2400/2650 motor. This is definitely a keeper and I am planning on picking another one up for my next project.

    Can you explain in more detail what was wrong with your motor. Im not sure what you mean by cutting wires to short, etc.
    Thanks

    NUE motors doesn't come with flexible wires (the newer once now do). The coper wires from the windings go out about an inch past the can. Each tip is pre soldered but I made the mistake of cutting it. Each strand is coated with lacquer so it needs to be scraped or cleaned out and must be soldered together for all wires to conduct.

    I've ran 10 packs on them and they haven't leaked using 500k fluid....so far so good.

    I'm using the rpm shock tower spacers on mine. I drilled a hole in the center of the spacer and countersunk it then used one of the jconcepts stampede lowered body mounts and screwed it to the shock tower.
