    Hey Kenny I can't believe I just found out about the thread, shame on you Kenny lol, ok I can tell you a metal spur is not
    Needed, diff are fine just build them right and put read automotive high temp axle grease in there, put it in the diffs
    and the case , forget oil, put glue on the screws that
    Hold the differentials housing on because if you use oil the glue won't work. I have had a lot fail on me and its because those 4
    Screws come lose on the gear where the diffs are. The glue will prevent that . Traxxas bearing burn up with the xo-1 motor so
    Use boca bearings , 2 bucks a piece and you good. Call me or text me and I can explain it better. Good luck Kenny . Btw the
    Stocks shafts will hold up unless you just smash it which I don't thinks you should do lol, it's all in the driving.. Remember
    Metal is expensive to replace plastic is not so just adjust that slipper right and you all good. Just a few minor things no need
    To spend a bunch of money..

    about a week ago i got a replacement axle carrier, reinstalled it; found that i had a cracked bearing, and about 5 hours ago i installed a brand new bearing- so it is up and running again! after i get the time to go to our "local" hoby shop i will buy the right gearing and throw in that motor and esc combo! by the way, our hobby shop is 100 miles away...

    after learning that the 2200 mamba and the 1717 mamba motors have the same sized shaft, i will hopefully have time in the near future to put the mamba 1717 system in; as i am short of time due to a hour long bus ride to and from school, with a 3 hour wresting practice after school as well.

    I used the pinion from the 2200kv on the 1717 so it should work

    got some work done today, i got the 2200kv motor and mmm esc taken off, while they were off i gave the chassis a good cleaning. I got the custom motor mount situated onto the motor, i am in the midst of taking off the shock brace, so i took off the rear skid plate, undid all the bolts on the center, and went on to the front only to find a stripped bolt; so i am putting off the build till tomorrow to go find the reverse drill bits out of the work truck. thats all that i have gotten done today.

    i have an extra esc mount screw, im hoping that it will be long enough to replace the stripped one, if not i will just get a regular drill bit and put it right back in lol

    finished it all up, i dont have a camera to upload pics, but i can text someone pictures and they could upload them if they were willing to.

    I took off the shock brace, and made my own little spacers for the top and underneat the shocks where the screw goes, so the shocks wont hit the chassis.

    Everything is really tight in there.
    EDIT: almost forgot, do i need to calibrate the esc to the receiver?

    took my first test run today, i couldn't make out any difference out due to the snow making it just spin out (due to the insane amount of torque), but the thing was still hauling with the stock gearing

    i was messing arround with it today on the highway, i see a car coming and pull off the road, as the car goes by i think "i think i could race him". i pull back onto the road and pass him completely- even with stock gearing i was doing pretty good, arround 40mph or so

    That's fun! Probably trips them out to see it accelerate so fast and pass them!

    with the really crappy gearing, its really hard to tell, it certainly gets up to speed quicker, but it seems to top out at about the same speed as the regular 2200kv; but i will be able to give out a better answer after i get some decent gearing.

    With the more torque it should be able to handle way taller gearing to male up for the kv difference. Although more load more draw

    to use the stock motor mount, you have to drill it out in a spot, and you have to make your own custom shock mounts in the rear, but their is a kit my kershaw designs that is high enough that you dont have to do any other fabrication other than install the new mount- not even to the shocks. but other than those two things, it bolted right up

    I can't see why anyone would need more power than the mm and 2200 kv motor it already has more power than the truck can handle. still cool seeing people do it though.

    I take what I said back I just read through your thread I see your going for top end speed and more torque so you can gear it to the moon with the bigger can and lower kv with less temp issues

    Ooo, I'd rather not do any modifications. Plus I have no reason to spend money on a new motor when mine is new.

    i actually recommend to not do the xo-1 conversion, with the 1717 motor, you are limited on quite a few things, for instance: gearing, drive shafts (as the torque would probably rip certain shafts to bits), and the conditions you run in. Where as you can endlessly mod the stock e-revo as far as your wallet will let you, and have a nearly bullet proof rc. The reason i did it is because im pretty lenient, and i got a GREAT deal on the motor and esc combo.
