Depending on who it was that cut them, maybe.

I used the CB gears and they didn't require anything to fit and spin freely. Great quality! I am not sure if anyone else that sells them.

it depends, but. in any case, you need to break the transmission in. some guys use a wire brush on all of the diff gears to clean them up and smooth them out. essentially, helping the gear box break in faster.

What are you guys using as a scale to weight your cars? I just got the Sky RC corner weight system to check not only total weight but balance front to rear and side to side. I haven't used it yet on my CE but I did use it on my truggy. I'm going to race on carpet so balance is very important, at least it was in my sedan days. Any recomendations on front to rear balance (%)? I got the brass bulkhead (45g) and a Ti screw kit. I will post what I find out regarding weight. I have attached a pic of what I found on my truggy.

Anither question is regarding the Ti screw kit. It's a Protek kit but it says not to use it in high stress areas, shock mounts or places where locktite is required. So with that where do you guys don't recommend I use the Ti screws.

Also I just got the C and D mounts, the thing is the arms seem to have a lot of toe in. I installed the 2.5-1 inserts in the D block and arrows out in the C block. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I use the Sky RC corner weight system too. It's a really neat device. I wondered about weight distribution too, but for now my priority is just bringing the overall weight down. Once I get it closer to 1500 I'll start playing more with weight distribution.

As for titanium screws, a lot of people highly recommend the screws from Lunsford. I myself have bought a few Protek ti screws and they seem to strip a bit easily, so I would be hesitant about replacing all of my screws with them (right now I'm just using them for my button wing mounts and slipper eliminator). The Lunsford set is roughly twice as expensive but people say it's worth the price and I think they can be used anywhere.

Thanks for the reply. I will run mod with a 8.5 motor so the total weight is not such a big issue. I still want to get it down a bit. I used to race the B4 with a 13 turn double or a 11 turn single brushed motors in my outdoor track. I almost stripped one of the D mount screws so I they are not indestructible. But I did replace most of them without any issues. I didn't do the shock mounts on top or bottom. I'm waiting for confirmation on where not to use them Ti screws. Lunsford products are the best but $$$. Since I'm trying to be on a budget I couldn't get myself to spend more. Not right now anyway. I still have more cars to do so I will need more screws.

While I was in there I added cut down gears, carbide and tungsten balls and thrust cage as well as ceramic bearings.

If you are using the S2 body you will need to do additional cutting to the top of the motor plate.

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions.
thank you sir!! I have the Shapeways 3 gear and I wasn't planning on drilling either.

If you can send me more pics that would be great. I have my old aluminum chassis but I wanted to use this with my carbon fiber chassis.

i think this will turn out awesome.

You will notice a slight change, the JC chassis is nice but for only a measely 23 grams it's not worth it.

Now if you want a NOTICEABLE difference go with a carbon fiber chassis, that's what I run. Super light and just as strong yet has flex which creates more traction. The flex can be tuned with the side posts and loosening screws around the chassis.

I run X Factory but others run Plan B and are equally as happy. Both high quality kits.

If it's the original 4 gear, no. If it's the new 4 gear case then yes, they are the same internals.
