So i bought a MMM 2 ESC and 2200 combo over the weekend, thought installing would be easier than it is. At this point im kind of overwhelmed due to my noobness. Did my research, so people say i needed the king headz motor mount, and thankfully my LHS talked me out of it. I though the kingheadz was the only one that fits the 2200 because with my stock mount, the first few times it didnt fit(i didnt try hard enough). So i got 1 thing out of the way, 2nd problem, esc, got that out of the way as well by getting the mounting plate from revo. 3rd problem, relocating the Rx box. Ive seen ppl do fine with the stock box at the front, but some ppl say i need the emaxx box. Can someone explain why?? And how did people secure their boxes, whats better, velcro, tape, bolts??
Now to the main question, cant find the pitch of the pinion that came stock with my 2200. Its a 18t, 0.8 mod, doesnt mention the pitch though. So i ask the guy at my LHS, will the stock slash spur match this pinion from mamba? He says no, and starts making a kit for me that has revo spur clutch and pressure plates , added up to be 30$(he saved me money on the 35$ mount, but now screws me with the clucth??). So i got home and think to myself, why no just special order the pinion. Now, i remember he said he doesnt have the pinion i need, but i dont remember why, they dont carry or it doesnt exist. Apparently its hard to find a 5mm bore pinion that would match the pitch of a stock slash spur.
Then there is the slipper bearing adapter.....what the heck is that and what is it for?? And why do ppl say i need to loosen my clutch, ive read somewhere that ppls bearings melt and then seize, is that why?
Sorry for the lenghty post but if someone could please help me out here, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance!!!
