With the kit, did you you need the diff balls or dif they come with the 416 kit. I assume you need the zero pully. ?

I didn't realize that pinion peekhole came so close to where the XI mm v2 wants to mount, but I decided what the hey I bought the part already, if this breaks I'll just upgrade my chassis. Well I drilled a bit crooked, the mm/layshaft mount combo seemed to want to go one way off the centerline when I screwed in the combo without the root hole and that's how I thought it was supposed to be, but then when I looked at it I realized the motor mount itself was a bit crooked. Oh well, it seems to work (I did a short run), and now I can mount my motor with two screws! I tried just using one and stripped a spur... Also I didn't realize until I installed it that the little extension leg acts as a battery stop!

But yeah that cutoff hex key thing was still too cumbersome.

Also I ordered a spur gear adapter but tq was out so it's coming from China, hopefully this plastic one will hold up until then.

Awww man I thought you used them and that's why I got them! Well tbh I just wanted more pink aluminum.

I just ran this thing for the first time with my new 2S, 17.5, 3.76 FDR and it's scary fast! (Coming from 20 turn brushed, 6.something FDR, NiMH). Can't even fathom running this mod. Can't wait for Saturday! Can't wait to strap my phone to it to see how fast it goes too.

All is not lost.
My suggestion would be to line it all back up straight and shimm the leg on the motor mount till its in the right place . Wouldn't take much at all and it should fix up any binding etc.

Speaking of FDR's....

With a little bit of dremeling & shoe-horning a 43 pinion & 60 spur with 20 tooth pulley's, an FDR of 2.65



Cheers

I'd have to do the reverse and file the leg on the motor mount, this is very doable as well though.

So the zero aluminum servo mounts work with a savox sc1251mg lopro servo, turns out the spacing between the mount and the spline is just right. So glad this purchase didn't go to waste! Also I added even more pink, just wish I had a pink or neutral color motor (thinking Reedy Sonic), and wish the Savox came in neutral or pink.

I've moved everything inboard and after changing servos (and moving the battery a bit more outboard) I was able to remove 30g balancing weight from the battery side! I had foam shims shoving the battery inboard while I was adding weights to the battery side what the fudge was I thinking Looks like I'm ready for a narrow chassis

Yes, and you can get them posted from Greg Fisher (aka cannon on rctech) who owns "Feral Batteries". http://www.feralbatteries.com/RW-Rac...ear_p_395.html
Sometimes the small holes in the spur gear are a tight fit on the holder, I carefully use a body reamer to open the holes a little so they fit on easily.

Send him a pm just to make sure he has them in stock atm.

Cheers
Rob.

That will be the best upgrade for your car ever. I recently replaced the frp lower deck on my other Zero (which was having issues with no rear grip) and it transformed the car. The car is so much better now being easier to drive and very predictable in the corners, which equates to quicker lap times.

If you can I'd also suggest getting the CF upper deck (soft) and the alloy shocks, as they will also improve the cars handling.

Cheers

I never tried the ball diff as I liked the gear diff better as they require less maintenance and give better performance.

If you want a front spool (See my post #1725), you need to purchase three separate items to assemble one.
  • SAK-02 - 38T white pulley
  • SAK-09 - Solid Axle Outer Joint (2)
  • SAK-08/PK - Front Solid Axle

The plastic spool is nice and light. And the 3racing 416 ball-diff adds up to be a bit cheaper, you'll still need bearings and a pulley. Every time I'd go to buy a ball-diff the shop would be out of stock for at least one or two of the parts I'd need. http://os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=6367

I have tried the ball diff and i find it cleaner smoother and lighter than the gear diff, and for me less maintanence coz i dont need to constantly refill it
