For allen drivers the kit uses .050", 1/16", 5/64" and 3/32"

Every single part has been gone through from the chassis to the screws. Anything I felt needed a material change or better fit and finish or to be stronger or better, I changed. So, many of the plastics will be of a different plastics category. Most of the metal parts changed to different hardness or different metal type. The screws changed to include screws that I felt had a better tool fit and lasted longer. The most notable part that if I was running the older truck and I just wanted to upgrade would be the ring and pinion sets. The updated ones are very smooth now and mesh even better.

Hacker,
How can we order the new ring and pinion gears.
If I call Horizon do I tell them I want the ones made in Taiwan and they will understand that or will they still be sending out what they have in stock until depleted?
thanks

I'm running a 15T pinion but it started running a little on the hot side with a 1.2 rollout ratio. I'm thinking of going down to the 13T for a 1.05 rollout ratio.

I'm running on an indoor, clay track currently with the dynamite fuze 130a combo with the 3900kv motor. What's a good fan to get for the motor?

Unfortunately no, it doesnt work like that. You will have to check the walls at your local shop until we all know that all of the old stock is gone.

I can tell you that right now, the rear ring and pinion did run out of the old stock, so once we get them back in, if you have a back order, it would fill with the new one.

There are about 50 of the older front one left still in stock.

I wouldnt run a fan unless it was my last resort, with that being said. I have used a 3Racing heatsink/fan combo before.
Check your bearings and make sure they're all good, make sure theres no additional drag on the truck. No drag brake, no excessive timing, gear mesh is good, things like that.

What is a little on the hot side? Do you have actual temps?

I immediately removed it from the track and put my finger on the can. I could hold it there for 6 seconds but it did get a little uncomfortable. I just got a Craftsman temp gun.

Since it is an indoor, clay track, would it be a good idea to gear down to 13T anyways?

That does not sound too hot at all. Gearing should be a little more performance dependent than just temps and such. Sometimes a taller gear reduces wheel spin on a smaller track depending on traction and can help lower lap times and motor temps. sometimes traction is up and a smaller pinon on a tight track is the ticket.

From what you just said though I don't think you are in any range that would harm the motor. You can get into the 180-200F range with these motors however I would not target that range but just shows what is "safe" still. coming off in the 140-160 range would not be uncommon depending on the track, driver and setups.

run a 16 tooth pinion with that combo indoors and a 17 tooth outdoors on an 8th scale track. My motor hobbywing 4000 is slightly warm after a run.
