My Mach 3 even with 50* timing outside in this 75 degree humid MI weather and I never see above 125 F.
I run about 140 at the end of an entire battery pack without fan. I prefer to have a fan on there for the extra insurance since I under weight anyway. When I had the fan I wouldn't get above 115 at the end of a pack running 30/69 fantom Fr1 RS stator.

I ran 69/33 with an ECO "SlingShot" 17.5T and Promatch 2S 4600MaH ... I'm getting motor temps at 175 deg which is a bit high compared to you guys. The gearing is perfect for the track.... maybe it's just the cheap motor.

Is that after a race or a full battery pack? If that is after a race then I would get a fan or adjust your gearing and timing and keep a close eye with a temp gun

It's after a full battery pack not a race.

It maybe a crush tube between the bearings in the steering rack. The AE alum. Set uses them

what are the parts needed for my B5M Lite (3 gear transmission) to convert to 4 gear transmission? Part numbers would really help and what are the advantage and disadvantage?. FYI ... I run in an indoor clay track with medium to high grip surface.

If you run on med-high grip you don't need a 4 gear tranny. That would be for low grip, as it adds more rear grip.

Just finished up my B5 build.


Pretty darn happy with the way it came out.

so..if it adds more rear grip ... would that make the buggy in medium to high grip tracks accelerate faster though?

Grip doesn't necessarily increase speed. Read the 1st page of this thread for 3/4 gear break downs.

Default Gear diff build

I decided to give the whole gear diff thing a try in my B5M. And I assembled the gear diff without any instructions, which may have been questionable on my part, but after some trial and error I got it together, and I LOVE IT....

But I noticed that the outdrives have some play in them and in my ball diff the did not. The diff doesn't move side to side within the transmission case so I don't see how adding the 1733 diff shims would help at all, but I just came across these instructions...
https://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/c...arDiffSupp.pdf

And it calls for 2 shims under the sun gears and let me tell you what! I tried to initially put 2 shims under the sun gear and there was NO way in heck that the round end pin would slide through the hole in the outdrive with 2 shims under it. So I installed one and tossed the remaining 2 aside.

But now I have that little bit of play and it's driving me crazy to think that perhaps gear diffs do in fact require 2 shims under the sun gears. Can anyone chime in on this, Thanks!
