I think if you get the EliteRC motor mount, then you can go down to 14t without any issues.

Stay on your side of the fence man.

Anyway, I saw that on HH's site also, but there has been nothing posted here. I'm interested to see what he's done with it.

The elite mount does not allow you to run a smaller pinion. A smaller can motor will though. My Losi motor will allow a 13t, and the yet to be released speed passion cirtix should allow down to around a 11t. Any day now speed passion

some one know if is possible to change the spur of the central diff., with one made of plastic and a little bit bigger diameter?

other question, the overall gear is enough strong? there eccessive wearing of the metal parts on the transmission?

thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.
regards

With the Elite mount, you can only run as small as a 15t pinion.

I stand corrected....I saw some pics with it meshing cleanly to a 14t but perhaps it was with a smaller can motor. I don't have the 9E but it is one of the Buggies I am considering. It looks like its a great vehicle to drive however it has some issues to be dealt with with. I may end up going with the MBX6......

You're right about the issues, but it's very rewarding to drive despite that. It's clearly got the best chassis layout there is, and there really very few limitations as far as battery size, motor size etc.

Also with such a small spur gear, the car coasts much better than other e-buggys, which also helps the car jump better.

Default Transponder location ?

Was at the track today and they couldn't pick up my transponder which was mounted on the stock location. Ended up having to attach to the receiver box screw. They were claiming the metal piece under the stock transponder is in the way.

Anybody experienced similar issue ? Where did you end up mounting your transponder ?

Hey all. Just finished reading all 92 pages of this thread and It's great. Got some good pointers and have seen some good mods.
Just recieved my 9e conversion so I'll be converting my spare nitro into an elect. Will just be using the nitro mud guards and standard hobao body so I should get a good fit etc but I'm not sure if I should try and do the conversion with the old nitro chasis with the motor up front and move the steering to the other side etc. The nitro front center shaft now has a universal on the front end to try and negate the excessive wear from the front gear box being on an angle. Its a 4mm chasis and the rear cnc brace keeps things sturdy at the back, but with the motor move up front I'll have to sort out another front brace. Am just starting with Xerun 150A and a 2200kv SP on 4s but dont know the can size so I'm not sure of pinnion size yet. Know the kit comes with 14T but dunno if it's gonna fit. I love the nitro so cant wait to see how the elect runs

Can you explain what you mean by "shim ur diffs on the tight side"?

The SP 2200kv fits awsome. I'm running a 17t pinion and if you use the kit heat sink you will have to dremal out the holes for the heat sink to get gear mesh correct. You will also need to either flip the diffs in the case's to get the car rolling in the right direction or if your esc has the option of flipping the drive direction that will also work.
