"Now that more people are using 17.5's in prep for the ECT this winter, I've had a few people asked me how to mount a smaller size spur gear onto the b4(or XXX) and retain the slipper clutch...

Obviously there is a "slipper eliminator" out there. But our cars have the slipper clutch on the car for many reasons; diff life, transmission wear, handling, and weight bias...

Below I have created a list of parts, mostly AE parts and 1 Losi part to make this conversion.




With this you should be able to run a smaller spur.
These parts you will need to acquire:

T3 Slipper Plate (outer)

T3 Slipper Pad

Losi Hydra Drive Spring Cup and Spring Kit
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/15126

This part you will already have-

B4 Slipper Plate (Inner)
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXEAD0&P=SM


On the Losi part A-3124. You will need to cut one end of this spacer flush, make sure you keep the side that is "keyed" the same way as the top shaft. Once this is cut you are ready to assemble the slipper clutch.

I have created a transmission blow apart drawing. This drawing shows the basic assembly of the slipper clutch.

Also shown in this drawing are the new parts used in the assembly, these have been highlighted yellow.


Here is the link for the blow apart drawing-

I originally assembled and it is geared at 31/69. It seems to be pretty close for the power band. But I would recommend carrying a 30,31,32 pinion selection..."

I ran 32/75 with my 17.5 and it worked quite well. Could have easily went to a 34 tooth pinion but with the tight track that I was running it on, I didn't see the need to.

If you're running the newer lightweight setup you only want to add weight to get the car to 1500gm. Probably best to add that weight to the battery strap or between the receiver and battery tray if you need to balance against the weight of the speed control.

Thunder power 40c, Fantom 40c, reedy 35c, orion 3600 and 3800 will fit. Honestly, I havnt seen a lipo that wont fit. I think a buddy just got that pack and is running it in his t4.

I just got an SMC 52000/24c sport pack, it seems a little tall for the battery strap, the rear is stressed.

Now that you mention that, a guy at the track said he filed the rear shock tower a little where the strap goes to give a little bit more hight for the pack.

Do the rear wheels for a B4 / B44 fit on a RC10 B2 / B3? I can't find any of the older Yellow B2 Rear Wheels.

Not sure but I think that the offset is wider on the older rims as well as the axel size. But theat might just be for the truck.

The B4 has different offset from all the previous AE buggies. If you use B4 rims on the older car the rim will hit stuff and the rear will be really narrow. Axle size is a little different too. You should be able to find rims through Ofna, the CRT .5 mini-truggy uses the same rims as the older AE buggy rear on all 4 wheels.

There is a set on ebay now. Also if you can find somewhere that sells thunder tiger they are the same as the pheonix as thunder tiger are using the old assoc mold.
