Allright, all these measurements are with a custom lipo tray that is flush with the chassis-

Height avaliable- 23.3mm (21.3mm at the bulkheads)
Width avaliable - 46.5mm at the pulleys (un-modified)
Length avaliable-aprox. 139 mm with un modified bulkhead and jr 9000s servo with no serrvo mount spacers.


The orion lipo (3200) is 46.1mm at widest point, 137.5 mm long, and 23mm tall including the cell "bumps".

Looks like you got some pulley widening to do!! its pretty easy, mikexray posted how to do it a few posts back.

I'll measure my chassis and orion batt to give ya an idea of space needed. I'll be back.
I dremeled my top deck to provide a bit more clearence for this. You also need to make sure your wires come out of your plugs at close to 90 degrees to clear the steering bellcranks. I am thinking of triming the servo saver horn a bit to provide more clearence here.

There is a guy here in oz making up a replacement layshaft that incorporates a spur gear mount for normal spurs. I might get him to have a good look at the pulley clearence issue and he could solve that problem along with a spur gear adaptor. You also get a much lighter layshaft so a bit more punch in spec racing.

Those are for sure able to fit, i beleive the trakpower 4900 fits as well as the older 28c SMC 4000, but i'm not 100% sure...
so the losi lipos are direct fit no modding to anything correct?

You have to widen the pulleys for this one too.

If you take your time and do it right this would not decrease the value

The SMC 5000 28c takes quite a bit of drilling and a lot modifications. It took a while to dremel 3-4mm off the rear bulkhead. I know that trakpower 4900's, flightpower 5400's and the orion 5000 fit right in with no modifications. I know there a lot of other batteries out there that fit but those are the ones I know fit from my personal experience.

I'm interested.... I've got all my pullies lathed down already, so as long as the layshaft takes standard drive pullies it will be good. Have you got a contact?

do you mean this pack??

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/31890

my pack is

Length: 136mm (5.3")
Width: 47mm (1.85")
Height: 22mm (0.87")

and the orion 5000 is

Length: 137.5mm
Width: 47mm
Height: 23mm

so that means it should fit with no mods

Hey all,

I was absentmindedly building a brand new diff while watching TV. Built it right but then tightened it too much; it went "click." I loosened it and turned it, and it just clicks like a bike one-way. Then I took it apart, checked all the parts (they look fine; the thrust rolls fine it seems) regreased everything and put it back together. Now it has crunchy spots evenly around its rotation. Do you know what part is causing this trouble?

Thanks.
