    Ok guys I need help, the chassis I have is a 4909 and I need to decide what tranny I can put on it, I don't think I'll want a reverse one because they break easy but I don't know what tranny I can use with the older style drive shafts??? Or how can I make this work??
    Thanks

    I think to keep things simple you should choose a tranny with output shafts
    the same diameter as your diff's output shaft (pinion gear).

    I prefer the black 2.5 trannys but mating 5mm output shafts of the black tranny
    up to E Maxx diffs 6mm pinion gears was a bit tricky.

    Do you know if your diffs use 5 or 6mm drivecups?

    For steering:

    What you think about this one:
    http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC0251...avsc0251mg.htm

    And for throttle:
    Maybe a Traxxas 2075 (Waterproof) or a 2070(no waterproof)

    2070 (no waterproof)
    http://traxxas.com/products/parts/servos/2070

    2075 (Waterproof)
    http://traxxas.com/products/parts/servos/2075

    Just my suggestion

    P.S: Looking nice

    I run a black 2.5 FOC tranny with stock driveshafts and B/L emaxx diffs. Juat gotta shave the end of the shaft a smidgen to work with the diff.

    Wow, six of them? Thats cool, they're impossible to find these days.
    Do you remember who made those fuel tanks?
    Mine is slightly different, it doesnt have the recess for the EZ Start.
    Its cube shaped. But everything else is the same.

    If your using the FLM ult hybrid rear with their diff and a stock front diff then you are going to have a problem with gear ratio. The rear is an 1/8th scale diff. Not sure what the ratio's are but they are different.

    I LOVE my hybrids. I cheated and put stock diffs in the bulks that were intended for buggy diffs and they have held up just fine. I will likely finally buy some buggy diffs once I get my brushless rig up and running though.

    Nice Build, That looks really cool, but I have a question I have yet to figure out, what exactly is Bashing?
    Yes I am new to Nitro Traxxas stuff actually New to the Entire RC Hobby I just got disgusted with the cheap CHEAP 4.8V rc I bought to entertain the cats always Dead or unable to run in lawn and seen a Traxxas T-Maxx on Ebay for a Rediculously ( I mean it to Rediculous) low price so I thought I would give it a shot and have not been so happy with a Purchase I have ever made on Impulse, but sadly now I am Hooked hard core and have this insane Craving that I must drive my T-Maxx daily or I get Withdrawl Issues. But back to the Thread, I am quite impressed with some of the items and am excited to hear how it turns out and especially how that carb works with the 3.3 as i will be going 3.3 as soon as I wear out my new 2.5 i installed a couple weeks ago. Got it at a Steal too.
