    Thank you very much. That one is much better! I didn't come across that one until just now. I just got a bunch of titanium screws and for some odd reason, the HPI Z069 Titanium TP Flat Head Screw M3x15mm screws has threads that are more spaced out that the stock/some aftermarket steel screws that i've gotten for the Emaxx. Should I avoid them type of screws and stick with the screws that have threads that are very similar to the stock ones? I'm ordering one of those fans right now, thanks emaxxbrushless !

    I just received my tony's screws for my revo. They look pretty good!
    I have ran the double clutch on my revo and ran perfectly. So far so good!

    The castle fan doesn't seem to blow much air. The fan on my merv blows way more air!

    what was wrong with using the dewalt? i have a craftsman power drill 3/8 and i think i have access to a 1/2" have to dig. do you just spin it slow or about medium speed to get the shims set? explain what you do so i dont mess mine up

    No that's not the problem! With the flm bulkhead its too tight
    With the merv I start slow with he dewalt and then faster but my drill press its a pain to switch speeds

    Ooh OK so start it slow then work your way up on speed now do you get going full speed? My drill says it 3000rpm so if I went all the way full speed after like 15-20 mins then checked shimming.

    It really only helps a bit. Because there is no load on it but about 5 minutes at a time is good. If its a new ring and pinion I will shim a little on the tight side because it will wear in.
    After shimming I add some grease on the ring gear and close it up .put it on the drill and it will loosen up after a while

    that sucks when you dont get something on time when you pay to have it on time. Thats when local hobby shops come in hand but they dont always carry stuff you want .

    Make sure to check the diameter of the heats sink. The one in the link with the fan on top was too big for my motor. I had to use the one with the fan on the side and stretch it to fit.

    Ugh I know how you feel. All my rigs are down right now waiting for parts. I try to support my LHS, but they're prices are ridiculous.

    Hey 50togo, what drive cups are you using with your FLM bulks with the CVDs? Whats the "Figured I would assemble the cvds with the washer mod" all about? thats something new to me and i'm sure it would benefit me knowing about the mod, thanks !

    Its a mod to run traxxas center cvds to a 8mm pinion
    You use the losi b3541 and put a 2.5mm washer on each side of the cvd shaft and fits tight in the cup need a pin from a losi a2861 and then heat shrink tubing to keep the pin from coming out

    Here is the castle blower http://www.ebay.com/itm/Castle-Creat...item2c6be134db

    Ooo....so let me get this straight, if I get two of the losi b3541 I can attach them to the pinion that came with my FLM Ultimate bulks to allow me to run my traxxas steel CVDs?? I did some mearsurements tonight and measured the FLM pinion to be 8mm on the pinion side and then 5mm where the drive cup goes.Are you using the pinion that came with the FLM bulk kit?

    I was just looking up 2.5mm washers and found several variations...do you have a part number for the 2.5mm washers you used?

    I use mobil one synthetic grease. Yes if your pinion shaft is 8mm this mod will work with traxxas center cvds
    I thought the flm pinions were turned down to 6mm?
    For the heat shrink I used this http://www.ebay.com/itm/230894671018...84.m1439.l2649

    And for the drive cups I thought they were 6mm not 5mm
    I cut some traxxas 5454 shafts. Trimmed the threads off and cleaned them up

    Thanks, i'll have those losi cups and washers on order. Yesterday I was fidling with my FLM Ultimate Hybrid bulks and I got a measurement of 8mm for the pinion diameter closer to the pinion side and a measurement of approx 5mm diameter on the side closest to where the drive cup would sit.....essentially where the grub screw would go to hold down the drive cup....the precise measuremnts that i got for the FLM pinion is 5mm and where the flat grub screw spot is a measuremnt of 4.5mm. I plan on using the traxxas steel center cvds for the time being along with traxxas steel shafts in all four corners until i get things on a roll with the Losi XXL LST2 shaft mods.........so your advice will be very helpful to me. What do you use the heat shrink for ?

    o i c what the heat shrink is for......gotcha...........ok......yeah time to get this mod on my setup now.............perfect.......well once again those are the measurements i got for the FLM Kit included center output pinion that would connect to the center shafts, 8mm on the side closest to the pinion gear head.....and 5mm on the side that would be closest to the center shaft.........and a measurment of 4.5mm where the flat spot is where the grub screw would sit flat to hold it in place....this mod is perfect for what i need........can anyone verify my measuremnts......or did i get another odd set of stuff with my FLM Ultimate bulks ..........by the way.....I used the longest screw and 3x15mm screws to hold these pupies in place...i know 50togo and I were trying to figure out exactly how to screw these things correctly....everything is looking good !

    Hmm.....Thanks for that 50togo...those bearings sure do look beefy ! I'll have to call Mike and ask him for sure! My short term goal is to run the FLM Ultimate Bulks with Traxxas Steel Center CVDs. Now with that coupler you provided me a link with......where will that go? I thought I was going to be able to use the same setup you have at the moment.....the FLM bulks with the Traxxas Steel Center CVDs.....along with the losi cup

    Alright, so I just looked more into it......here is whats going on with my current build which is inspired by yours !
    I will have the FLM Ultimate Bulks....with the pinion it came with....i've got two of the Losi LOSB3541 F/R Differential Drive Yokes on order and already have the Traxxas Steel CVDs along with those washers, anything missing?

    My pinion shaft is 8mm from a hyper 7. Its not turned down to 5mm like yours .I think you need the adapter I linked in post 274
    Might work with more washers but rc monster adapter would be better.
    With the washer mod you also need losi a2861 for the pins

    Check out rc monster!

    Oo000oo I c....That is awesome. I know you've talked about the Hyper 7 Diffs. Are you also running the whole Hyper 7 Diff in your FLM bulks? Did you get your titanium pins in today?
