Thanks.

After a couple runs at the track yesterday, I noticed the motor starting to get hot (Reedy 8.5T). I'm going to go down a tooth or two on the pinion, but does anybody run a fan on theirs? Will it even fit under the body?

No fan, just a little slit on the body with it pulled up to pull the air over the motor. Comes off at 140-150 after an 8 minute run.

I really don't think there will be enough room for a fan on the motor with the top plate, drive shaft and body. Possibly...

EDIT: Reading back a couple pages it doesn't appear to be possible, unless someone knows of something I missed?
I put the Schelle chassis on about a month ago.... Wow, what a difference. Its worth the investment! I guess you could find out what parts you need to convert to the 44.3 chassis if you want to go that route. I think you need chassis, motor mount, and top plates. Possibly drive shafts but not sure. You are going to have to bounce between the 2 manuals for part numbers.

But I highly recommend the Schelle kit. It is awesome and goes together about as perfect as perfect could be.

You need the top decks, shafts(front and rear single the center section is moved up), motor mount, chassis, and the corresponding battery hold down for the chassis

That's the reason I got the Schelle kit. It comes with everything you need including battery hold down, motor mount, upper deck, chassis and protector. Everything else is used from the kit. The chassis layout lets you choose what ever layout you want. Motor front or back, servo on either side, and can be configured back to the normal saddle pack style if you choose.

Well worth the $110 for the amount of options you get. Plus the parts quality is top notch.

Yep, the parts to put it together are close to $175 I believe back when I priced it out. To convert the whole car was just shy of $300 with gear diffs... cheaper to just buy a 44.3

Yeah that's why I was looking for a cheaper option, because then I'd just sell the .2 and pick up a used .3

The Schelle conversion kit is $115.... When did you price it out at $175?

If you want to get the gear diffs, that's another $90.

You will need 2 of the #9935 and so in total that is $442.77..... $175 was bare essentials to get a shorty in the car with associated parts. So really just top decks, battery cradle, and the motor mount and a few other odds and ends.

The diff cases from the 2 can be used on the 3. You just have to grind the nub off the inside if you plan on running the shorty layout.

Looking at your price list, you are looking at doing a full 44.2 to 44.3 conversion. That's is not cheap. Best to just buy a new 44.3 kit.

If you just want to go to a shorty layout while still using all the 44.2 parts, the Shelle, as I said before, is probably the best option.

If you buy the front or rear diff, you don't have to buy the diff out drives. They come with the diff kit itself. Same with the center diff.
And the center CVDs are specific for the gear or ball diffs. You don't need both( you already have the ball diff ones on your 44.2). Also, you wont need the input shafts as they are part of the CVD kit, just the input gear and clip.

You are right. We are in the same frame of mind just showing what it would take if you wanted to purchase ALL the parts to convert to a 44.3. It still is going to be nearly the cost of the kit to upgrade

We were on the topic 2 months ago...

You don't have to buy anything other than the full Schelle Kit. It comes with the main chassis, top decks ( both) battery hold down, chassis protector and hardware. Everything else you already own. Its a true conversion kit. Not one where you have to pick and choose and pull pieces from here or there. It also allows you to run what ever configuration you want. Motor in front dhort, motor in back shorty, saddles, and servo on either side.

I have since put the gear diffs in mine and it has really woken the car up. Went from mid pack/ back marker to top 4 almost every weekend. Myabe Im just getting used to the car and how to drive it
