Thanks to shaggy101086
I just installed a TRX 3.3 in my Nitro Stampede. Just as described in this thread and, it will drop right in. However I ran into one small problem. The side of the spur gear was rubbing the side of the clutch bell. This may not happen with all spur/clutch bell combos. Its going to depend witch gears you are using. RRP spur gears will require this mod. Heres what I did to fix the problem.
Some helpful pics can be found in the link provided below...
1. You must remove the slipper clutch & spur gear.
2. You will need washers to shim out the slipper clutch & spur gear witch will create the gap needed between the sides of the gears. I used traxxas 5x8x0.5 teflon washers (part # 1985) Place a washer on the shaft right in front of the break adapter. You may need to go back and add another washer if one is not enough.
3. Reinstall slipper clutch & spur gear. Set motor mounts if not done already. There should now be a gap between the sides of the gears.
4. Double check your work. Make sure the gears spin freely by holding the truck off the ground and spinning the spur gear.
Good luck & have fun...
