Happy Christmas everyone.

Will a 96 tooth 48 pitch spur gear fit on the Mission?

The 20 tooth Mission pulley corresponds to 1,8:1 ratio, right?

Currently I'm running a HPI Sport2, which got a relative heavy drivetrain - gear diffs, hardnend steel outdrives and "small" pulleys.

Is it a good idea to start out with the same final ratio on the Mission? (track + class are the same, tight technically carpet and stock). What is most common in this situation, to go up 1-2 tooth on the pinon or????

Thanks.

Cole, Not sure about a 96, i would think so. I have had a schumacher 95 gear on it, and it was very close to nearly everything, so not 100% sure about a 96. Different companies gears do vary slightly in size even for the same number of teeth.

Yes i would start with the same overall ratio, you may find that you are able to gear up a bit, but at least if you start on the same you should know that you are on the safe side.

Yes the 20 tooth pully is 1.8:1

Thanks.

Yep, your are right about being safe. However, due to the 1,8:1 ratio, I need new spurs/pinons anyway. I can just as well get the proper ones for the same overall ratio + an extra pinon or two to gear up a little, if nessecary/possible.

Default Mission and batteries

Well, I finally received my Mission, now the big question. I have a set of 2400's that do not seat just right. Any thoughts/ideas? Also, I am getting some 3300's in, should expect that these do not seat in just right either?

Well, I just got a pack of 3300's too and they fit fine but you cant have your pinion all the way out equal to the spur gear. you just back it in a little twards the motor, other than that they fit perfectly fine

You need to sand your batt slots to get the batts to sit in the slots perfectly.

Hey Guys...ran into a problem this weekend...wondering if anyone else has seen it. Running the front steel drive axles, and one way diff...the right side axle barely engages the diff outdrive. Mine came out after a hit, and it ate the outdrive...has anyone else had this problem? The only change I made that I can think of that might have contributed to this was moving the lower hinge pin to the inboard 2 degree position...

THanks for any input...

Mark

Thanks James, I will try that, I had thought of that but I did not want to do it, if it wasn't needed.
