The belt seems to ride on the casting were the bearing on the motor is.

Also ended up dremeling the chassis were the back of the motor is as it was hitting on the bottom preventing the chassis from flexing .

Thanks for the heads up!

I still wonder why they don't sell the aluminum pulley and flanges to replace the front clicker though? Everywhere else overseas that sells the stuff sells those parts individually.

Is anyone else having trouble with there shorty holders not holding the lipo in and allowing it to move during a run ?

I run my lipo across the back side ways but the lipo holder bracket tabs fold or bend and allow the lipo to move

Any thoughts ?

I e-mailed a-mains sales department about that pulley . They replied back and said they have several parts on special order from yokomo that they have been waiting for . Seems like they are adding a part or two every other week .

I had the same thing happen in one run on Sunday. I'm pretty sure I hadn't hit anything hard, but the lipo was all the way forward after the run.

I've just bought a new set of holders for now, as I probably won't by running the lipo all the way back when the track is drier.

You could always drill a hole in the carbon battery strap & use a nut & screw to stop the lipo moving.

Default 17.5 gearing

Hi guys,

What gearing combo are the 17.5 stock guys using?

I tried fitting a 69 spur and a 32 pinion but due to the spur shaft and motor holder design the gears wouldn't even touch each other. I moved the motor as close as possible to the spur but it was still too far away.

What is the lowest FDR spur/pinion combination for 17.5 one can use in this buggy?

Thanks

69/35 on mine works good comes off at 60 deg C after 7 to 8 mins

You won't fit smaller then a 34 cause you can't move motor over far enough.

You could use a 72 tooth though

I have 2mm gap or so between the motor and belt, the motor sits up off of the chassis, I don't know if your motor mount is bent or not spaced rite.

I unscrewed the top deck , motor mount and layshaft and was able to reposition the motor mount to get the clearance . It really freed up the drivetrain . Thanks for your help .
