I am looking forward to these coming out.

been using the converted NT1 diff for the past few months. works like a charm, no issues.

you will need 50mm shaft.

you can use metal internals, just use 2 smaller bevel gear instead of 4, and use aluminum cross shaft instead of steel... lightens up the entire gear diff

So does the nt1 diff fit straight in without modification and if not what exactly did you need to do to it ? What I mean is the gears and cross shaft whare did they come from. Sorry to ask a lot of questions just want to get it right.

There is a lot of modification needed. It has been covered several time in this thread, I don't have the exact post #'s, but if you search this thread you should be able to find a couple write ups about it.

Cheers mate but I had a quick look for just the diff for the NT1 and its over 50.00 and would still need to change the dogbones to 50mm. Spec R also do one thats cheaper so may try that.

I will be running on a medium sized track with medium to dusty surfaces (asphalt parking lot) under tropical weather where temps area above 30deg celsius. My equipment is the LRP TC Spec v2 mated with an x12 octa 5.5T motor and LiPo 6200 battery. Keeping the stock spur, what would be a good starting point for a pinion/spur?

Second question,

Some of the racers here have retrofitted two gear diffs (I assume they are taken from the NT1 platform) and fitted them into the T3. This gear diff option seems to be the rage nowadays with zero to little maintennace. Would a 5.5T motor be overkill for the ball diff? How long would the ball diff last before it needs to be taken apart for routine maintennance? We race generally 3 qualifiers, two heats and one finals for about 40+ minutes of racing in a single day. Would the ball diff be a disadvantage on a asphalt parking lot track?

Third and final question,

I had a chat with a fellow racer and he mentioned that the LRP cooling fan will offset the weight of the T3 and making it a bit heavier on the motor side. I have the option of attaching this fan to the X12 motor but havent really tested the setup with the fan. How would we balance the car to have equal weigth distribution from left to right?

Is the LRP fan supposed to be mounted from the back? the top or the front? Most racers here attach the fan at the back of the motor, but I thought the cooling air was supposed to flow through the motor fins?

Hey guys,
i am thinking about doing the servo mount mod. Basically all i would have to do is get a 26mm turnbuckle and drill out new mounting holes??? I am using the Futaba 9551

Just out of curiosity, what would the advantage of having an Xray gear diff as to apposed a r-spec gear diff? I use r-spec gear diff, but what would I gain to get an xray if they choose to produce one?
