    acutaly the integy trans are just as good as flm

    the reason there parts break is that they are casted leaveing the part not solid or sound sometimes.but one thing to note is that the integy transmissions are milled out of solid aluminum

    Nothing from integy is milled. Its all cast and done so badly. Thus nothing from integy will ever be as good as companies like FLM and New Era.

    I'm 99% sure that the nitro arm mounts won't fit the Stampede chassis, or Rustler, Bandit, Slash either. I've seen a guy make them fit, but the screw spacing is a little different from the nitro to electric. It's been at least four years since I've seen someone do it, but I'm pretty sure that was the case.

    Still interested to know if the RPM mounts have the standard 1.5 anti-squat though.

    What RPM has done isn't exactly new. Just conveniently packaged. Its been quite some time since its been done but you can mount the Traxxas motor plates on the pede trans. Takes a bit of work and the plates are a little hard to get but makes for a nice trans.

    I used part No. 2798 (+1 or -1 ) or 2797 (zero degree) on my buggy and the 1934 1.5 anti-squat wedge

    I had to narrow the chassis to make them fit

    Oh and 2798 is the same part No. for the TRX-1, SRT and Nitro Rustler
    the spacing is the same ..only difference is the width

    If you follow the link in post #17, Under the "Rear mount and Gearbox installation" #3, it says to use M4 Jam nuts. Haven't really heard the term "jam nuts" but I'm guessing this means lock nuts. If so, it seems like it will be pretty sturdy.

    So, your custom chassis is the same bolt pattern as the Rustler/Stampede in the rear? Couldn't remember because it looks so much like the SRT.

    That is correct Harry
    Both front and rear bolt pattern are the same as the Bandit/Rustler/Stampede
    Only difference is the length of my chassis and that I had to narrow the chassis next to the rear suspension mount
    Bandit/Rustler/Stampede's are a bit wider than the SRT and Nitro Rustlers

    ok so some investigation the integy part# 7879 say they are machined

    but then again other trans say there machined "forged"

    semi serious but i guess mis read

    now on to the rpm gear box
    there seems to be alot that could be done to yet lighten and reinforce
    looking at some of the other pics of the trans. it looks as thought you could lengthen some screws to screw into the aluminum plate. and also cut abit of the plastic of the trans so the motor isnt so inclosed(i know the plate helps with heat)witch also saves some weight

    with that i have no raceing experience to say eny thing for weight distribution or elimination
    but to say with that you need the ratio to be close for hp/lbs to have proper control

    Just bought the green one off E-Bay, should be here in a few days. Starting a new Pede build soon and this will (hopefully) be perfect.

    So I'm guessing the way the arm mounts attach, that this will not be compatible with the STRC LCG kit without some mods.

    Sweet man!, Yeah RPM says Jan 7th. Tower has it listed as mid Dec. I then found them on e-bay from a couple sellers. I paid a couple bucks more then you, from RCboyz $25.15 shipped. The seller you bought from didnt have the Green one.
    I did contact rcboyz and he indeed has them in stock!

    Do you have to modify the original gearbox when using the STRC LCG kit ???

    The RPM hole pattern is the same as the original gearbox
    so it's a direct fit, no need to modify anything

    Anything else would be foolish

    Isnt that the strc lcg chassis?



    I guess it would need those two bottom screws, or else the suspension arm mounts would only be held with the rear screw and would be pretty weak. The stock trans has the arm mounts attached solid to it which eliminates the need for the two front screws, then the top bracket shown in the above pic takes the stress. I still dont get why rpm chose to eliminate the front suspension arm mounting point that attaches to the gearbox.

    Yes that's the STRC LCG kit

    And I would even mod the skidplate, when using the stock gearbox
    I ripped my rear a-arm through the mount, that's why I use the separate suspension mounts now

    Just came in the mail today!

    Came with some screws/nuts, instructions, motor plate, rear mounts and a BIG OL' RPM decal

    So far I'm diggin it, The feel of the plastic, (kinda tried twisting the halfs in my hand) seems pretty darn solid. Once this is fully assembled, I believe it will be a rock solid trans. Don't think there should be any worries of "flex".

    If I have time I will try and get this assembled today. Have to yank and dismantle my trans from my Pede project first.

    Well it started as a GD roller, but it wont be an actual Digger, Just going for a black/green combo more or less.

    I got a thread going here about it.

    Whats up Daniel?? There is life outside the vintage forum......

    Mine was $25 and sum change shipped, I'm with you, thought already crossed my mind of anodizing the motor plate, either black or green....I mean you wont see much of it if your running a gear cover, but still.

    I just weighed the stock trans, with all screws, and internals,no spur/slipper, According to my scale (which seems to be pretty accurate), stocker checks in at 5oz or about 142g.

    I will weigh the RPM when I get it assembled.

    Well guys, Got it together!

    Wasn't to bad at all, the bearings sit and fit nice and tight in their spots. You use a combo of stock screws, and a few of the included screws.

    Instructions are pretty straight fwd, little bit of mumble jumbo there about removing the slipper, referring to exploded views for the internals, etc. etc. Lets just say they don't leave you guessing what's what.

    Like I said seems to be very solid, even more so when it gets mounted.

    Now I weighed this the same way as the stocker, and with the two "0"deg arm mounts. Put it on scale several times and I got 5.3oz or 150g everytime. Stock weighed 5oz even. My scale has been accurate in the past with the usps scale's, so looks like it is a tad bit heavier, but dont think you would ever notice. (8 grams)

    Heres a few pic's:

    Do you anodize the parts yourself or do you send it out to have it done?

    +100 to that, I couldn't agree more. All I currently have are Stampedes and I love them. Now that the 4x4 came out (droooool), I love them even more. Too bad a recent experience has caused me to start thinning my fleet.
