Or, you can dremel the motor... Not my first choice, but with the Tekin Redline being a few mm longer and no taper at the endbell I couldn't get even close... Even dremeling the inner pin mount wasn't enough... by the time I got enough material off the pin mount to fit a 118/53, there wasn't enough left of it to hold the ball in place...

The Xcelorin and Trinity motors I had in the car were both shaped just fine and required no dremeling to get a 118/53 in the car, but my Xcelorin is a 10.5, and the 17.5 Trinity that I borrowed from Alex last time out was busy in his Speedmerchant today... so with no prs adapter handy, this is the result...

warning: it might be a good idea to check for ROAR legality (or whatever rules are in place where you race)

The first one is the stock one, which I think sucks, the cage always explodes. I've used the 2nd, but didn't like it either. If your looking for a losi one, this set is good

but not caged, for caged I have been using the ones that Axiom has, the hold up well.

I always use the losa3018 for the diff, and they seem fine, the trick is not to over tighten them and they will last.

As for motor clearance, i just shave out the pivot block with a sandpaper wheel, and it has plenty of clearance to get the motor all the way back in the mount.

Mike-

Did you run the steering rack foreward on the top deck? was it for battery connector clearance or for the ackerman change? I have to run them foreward for connector clearence with the TrakPower Lipo's. What kind of change will I expect from the foreward and back positions of the rack on the top deck? I would imagine and little quicker and sharper steering running it foreward? Where do you run the rack for both foam and rubber? This setting is not on the setup sheets.

I always run the steering rack foward, yes it does make the steering more responsive.
