Definitely wouldn't do anything less than 50C, you can ruin the motor/esc!

Ofna Hyper 9 metal spur fits perfect, uses the same teeth as the stock spur. (dont have the part number), you'll have to so some modifying, but the 4 holes will mount up perfectly. You have to cut the center of the gear out. The metal is hardened, so you'll need a nice powerful cutting tool.

Heres mine, sorry, my truck is still dirty




My pinion gears last, You have to mesh it up perfectly to reduce metal -metal wear.
cant see myself going back to a plastic spur, feels like a driving a buggy lol also love the sound.

Just wondering why you would want to run a metal spur? There is absolutely no advantage. Ive been running the stock spur since the scte was released and have a couple spares in the box but the stocker is barely worn. Proper gear mesh is all that is needed especially in MOD 1 gearing. If you looking for more noise run nitro.lol

Do you need LOSB3571 (Front ring and Pinion) to seal the diff?

I bought a roller with some parts, so i have the gear set, the diff seals. I wanted the lightened outdrives, so all i needed was the housing to build another diff. Well, minus the mentioned above, LOSB3571.

The front and rear diffs are the same right? Minus the Rings/Pinon (LOSB 3571/3572) of course.

Also, friend recommended i seal it with a very small amount of RTV sealant, Red version. Anyone else use this? Tips?
1. No but you will have to take the screws out then put the ring gear on, then put the screws back in. I don't know if the screws will bottom out without the gear.

2. Yes the front and rear are the same the center uses different out drives.

3. I don't use it but some people do.

I'm getting a Viper Copperhead combo 4500kv tomorrow, what batteries needed for that?

I have two Gens Ace 2s 5000mah 40C's

that good enough? they are plenty for my Flux HP which is basically 1/8 scale Mamba Monster stuff. Why would you need over 50c? my Flux requires 100amp miniumum which would be like 25c.

Those would be fine. Saying you need 60C is ludacris.

In fact I beta tested the Copperhead system for the last 2 months with the 5150kv on 2s and ran those exact packs. So no worries.

K thanks.

Also wouldnt it be the battery that goes poooof if your running to little C rating? how the heck would the motor/esc blow up?

Also Ethan5050, why does your SCTE chassis a brownish color? is that not stock?
