I had trouble with the pin for the slipper myself. Fit nice with the slipper out of the car, but once the slipper was in I couldn't get the pin to go all the way in. Was getting hung when it reached the far side of the mount. I ended up working on only one side at a time and once I got one side to go all the way in I changed to the other side. Once I had each side working I tried both sides at once and it worked. I haven't taken it out since so I don't know if it will be easy every time.

it is very tight at first i had to poke a driver thru the hole and wollow it out so to speak kinda stretch it and with a lil push it will thru all the way!! I finished my build today i really took my time and some things were really a tight fit and patience was needed now its time to wire her up!!

I read the oople review. It was awesome up till he was heading out to his race. Then I couldn't stop laughing. I hope he can get an experience racer to assist with any further reviews. He posted his lap times but the car was not right when he was trying to compare previous times. And to test the Nimh batteries when they were years old??? That's not right either. LOL. But all part of the humor for me.

His pictures and the build were stunning though.

Hmmm, I started with an 18T pinion on my Tekin 5.5 BL motor and it temp just right but the ESC was very HOT. So I put in a 15T pinion on it, which I think is the smallest you can fit in it anyway, and test from there. Our home track got soaked so I wasn't able to test it.

Dude, I spent over an hour trying to get that f'ing pin to fit properly. I was ready to chuck it through a window. After a lot of filing and using an allen wrench through the other end to line things up better, I made it work. I dread the day I have to pull that d@mn thing out again.

Why don't you guys get a battery that actually fits the car without any mods????

What i did to get my pin to fit in was taper the ends of the pin slightly. It still needs abit of force to get it in and out but its deffinatly easier. Also t0p_sh0tta have you got the pin that the battery strap moves on in the top hole?

We're talking about the slipper cover.

Unfortunately, yes. I think I'm going to send this one back to A-main and pick up one of the 23mm packs. It's just a shame that TD marketed this as 25mm ready...

Lamar, if you read a couple of pages back, myself and others got 25mm packs to fit in the non-R's with some shimming. If you want to keep that pack just shim the center/motor mount and the rear strap/gearbox mount 1mm. You should be fine. I will show you my car at the track weds. Good luck.......

Guys here are some pics of the shims I made. You could also use washers.

On the diff loop there are 2 different pin holes for your battery height. Mine did that untill I selected the correct pinhole, unless you're in the top pinhole already.

Anyone have suggestions on gearing with a 13T? I'm going to try running that in our small indoor track. Thanks.

Lets all laugh at the noob that used the wrong hole and just purchased an Orion pack (that's for sale btw).

lol

Please ignore my previous posts, as it now fits like a glove.
