I think that is almost vintage in RC years. I believe i've had that since 2007??? maybe 2006?? or whenever Novak released the Velocity motors. Next payday i'll retire it once again. The other Velocity's I killed off a few years ago. They were dang good motors to me.

Tires/inserts is where you want to start

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between the diff gear that is listed as the part for the b5m ASC91419, and the one that was used in the b4 ASC7664? They look to be the same size (teeth wise) but I didn't know if the diff balls were located differently or the bearing sizes are different? maybe metric instead of imperial?

I'm trying to locate a set of cut/narrowed gears and all of the ones I have seen are for the B4 tranny's.

They are different. The B5 uses 14 diff balls and the B4 uses the old standard 12 balls.

Schelle battery brace users, did any of you need to shave down either the posts or thumbscrews? I'm not understanding why the thumbscrews are about 3mm from putting tension on the Schelle brace.

? Doesn't make sense, that means the stock brace wouldn't add tension either. Is your batteries height is below the chassis post height?

I have plenty of tension with my Schelle brace.

Yea IDK either. This is a conversion kit to mid motor. I haven't put the adhesive foams on the chassis yet, but from the looks of it I would need the foams double stacked or something. Or one on chassis and one on bottom side of the Schelle brace.
I'll post a pic when I get home tonight.

I had the opposite problem, mine would crank down to the point where it was bowing down.

According to online specs, the Venom 3800 are 25mm high. This is dimensions on the new batteries. Mine are from 2012 I think, and I assume they are near the same height.

Any idea if your batteries are around the 1" height?
