    Opinions and ?s on this gear case

    http://www.hot-racing.com/index.cgi?...TE12GX01;c=430

    Does or has any1 have/had this gear case and how does it work, all pics I've looked at haven't had a protective case over the pinion/spur gears if I do choose this gear case/mount do I just buy the part that goes over the pinion/spur and if so does any1 know which 1s would fit

    oh yea I seen it but his pinion/spur is exposed, and It does look like the stock cover would fit but I would like to get an aluminum cover for it as well to act as a heatsink

    An aluminum cover, Where do you live, on the equator?
    Someone probable makes them,but unless it's 150 degrees where you live,that,s just extra weight.
    I think your really your taking this heat thing ,a bridge to far.
    I live in Michigan and in the summer we run in 90+ degrees a lot,heat can be an issue if you don't gear for the track,but your worrying way to much over nothing.

    Okay,but gear your truck right,and you'll be fine,you keep adding weight to dissipate heat,and you start to defeat the purpose
    Good luck,have fun rc ing.

    That HR tranny is a hybrid. It has a graphite gearbox and an aluminum motor plate. The weight of this box isnt much more over stock. You should see temps decrease somewhere around 10 vs what it used to be. HR also sells an alloy cover, but you can bolt up your stock plastic one or an RPM one that I suggest. The RPM one has a full cover where it will keep rocks from coming in.





    Another option is the new RPM gearbox that utilizes a motor plate also. Hope this helps ya.

    The HR case is great, it is very light and the separate suspension mounts allow for easy anti squat adjustments with slightly modded wedges from the Nitro Rustler.

    The new RPM case is better on two fronts though. The suspension mounts are 100% separate, so they don't attach to the case at all. This makes gearbox maintenance easier as you can leave the suspension arms attached to the chassis and just remove the tranny.

    Secondly the bumper mount is exactly as stock with the RPM case. It isn't with the HR. The bumper attaches solely to the motor plate on the HR tranny and this isn't as robust a solution as what the RPM case does.

    I'm incredibly happy with my HR case, but if the RPM case had existed when I bought the HR case I would have gotten that instead.

    I have two rpm's,the one in the pic,and a green one I just got today.
    Even tho I was running indoors,(it's quite cold here)I notice almost a 20 to 25 degree demp drop,from stock.
    With the pro line trans, I noticed about a 10 degree temp drop,if the trans would last a pack with out problem's.
    I run my trucks hard,the case is 29 bucks,but the sealed cover,is sepert and cost another 6 bucks[IMG][/IMG]

    I probably already asked you but, do those HR mounts have toe-in? Looking at the machined silver line in the mounts, they appear to have toe-in, but I can't find any info on how much or if there are different mounts for different amounts of toe.

    Depending on what the answer is, it would be a toss-up for me between this and the RPM case.

    That's a big plus for the RPM case. I would like to see them make 1 degree mounts too, so you can get 4 degrees out of the Slash rear. Not a big deal though.

    If you look at the pic in the link from the first post, it definitely doesn't look like the arm mount is parallel to the trans case, which leads me to believe there is toe built-in. If that's the case, I can't understand why HR wouldn't document it. Well, maybe they did and I just haven't looked hard enough.

    Even tho you haven't had your slash long,if your going in to the trans case,I would put thicker grease in the diff,(you said it's hot there)and replace the diff bearings,as there the first to go.
    Its three extra dollars but no extra work.

    I run the rpm tranny case, and it's excellent. A definite thumbs up from me.

    For grease, go to your local auto parts store and pick up a tube of Lucas Red N' Tacky. That stuff is thick, and won't sling off the gears. It'll be around 4-5 bucks, the same price for a tiny tube of grease at the LHS.

    They don't have toe in, it is the same as the stock case.

    I'm scrapping my GH alloy case for a new RPM hybrid one. I need to try one of these puppies anyways. Sounds like my gears and new Triad Slipper are going to have a new home.

    At least on the cover,when I bought the truck second hand,it had a black rpm solid cover,the case was stock black.
    I didn't know they made a black stock case.

    Yeah, the original pede/rusty/bandit came with black plastics. Then around 05-06 they switched to grey plastics. Recently they brought the black back with the raptor and MJ pedes...

    Oh I see,since I just jump t back in the hobby about eleven months ago,and quit about 1986,It's still all new to me.
    I'm really quite surprised how much off my racing skills,came back so well.I mean I'm not always in last place any way. But the cover is a closed rpm aftermarket.
