can you post this in the first post. and a list of batteries and pinions that fit as people post the info in here


PINION: 14T. SPUR: 62T. BATTERY: Ni-MH. COMMENTS: This is the stock gearing. If you use a 2S–3S Li-Po, you will need to gear down, or you will overheat the motor.

PINION: 12T. SPUR: 62T. BATTERY: 2S Li-Po. COMMENTS: This gearing is optimal for a 2S Li-Po.

PINION: 11T. SPUR: 62T. BATTERY: 3S Li-Po. COMMENTS: This gearing is optimal for a 3S Li-Po.

Just ordered two shipped for $4.10 USD. Everywhere else is $4 each plus $8+ shipping.
Diff Shims and Misc Screws: (these options as noted should be stocked at most hobby shops)

CRC part number (CLN) #4738
Associated part number ASC21141 (cheaper and probably easier to get for many shops)

Replacement screws
Traxxas
TRX3215 - 2.5 x 6 mm cap head. 1 pack needed.
Good for pinion input on front and rear gear box. I also used them on the front body mount to shock tower. Also used to mount front shock tower to upper pair of mounting holes. Screw takes the larger 2.0 mm hex rather than the 1.5 mm hex head.

TRX2526 - 2.5 x 12 mm counter sunk. 4 packs needed.
Great replacement to mount f/r diffs to chassis. Also used for motor mount to chassis screws (2 of the 3) and for the steering post to chassis. I also replaced the front and rear suspension mount screws with these. Screw heads take the larger 2.0 mm hex head, rather than the 1.5 mm head.

TRX3236 - 2.5 x 12 mm cap head. 2 packs needed.
Great replacement for rear gear cover self tapping screws (4), rear wing mount screws (4). Heads are larger to accept a 2.0 mm hex driver.

TRX3965 - 2.5 X 8 mm cap head. 3 packs needed.
Replacement for rear wing mount cross braces, diff screws (upper to lower diff case mounting, 4 per diff) and shock tower to diff case mounting. Heads are larger to accept a 2.0 mm hex driver.

I didn't until I bought some Pro-line Tazers and TLR yellow rims - I could feel the difference when holding them, so decided to weigh them and was shocked to see a 25% difference, 80 gms for a stock wheel & tyre and 60 gms for the TLR/Pro-Line setup. Thats a fair amount of difference, 80 gms in total, especially as its rotating weight also.

Worth considering as I think the truck is a little on the heavy side IMO for the size of motor it uses and this is sure to help.

The mini 8 was a pretty big success, if I can ravage up the money I expect this will be a better alternative to my mini revo.

It will blow away the mini Revo on 2 and 3S Lipos, just remember to drop the pinion down to 12T before using a Lipo. (it's in the manual)
