The HD diff case can be used in any of the 3 diffs, as the diff cases are all the same. They will be sold individually. Cost I'm guessing will be around $15-$20 per

Will mostly be running on outdoor dirt track. Medium air.

ESC is RX8 Gen2

Can the truck do standing backflip on 4S?

Not sure if this factors in but I have a Pro MT on 2050kv on 4S and plan to run a long can 6S on my ET48.3

Thanks
I finally got mine dialed in where I like it with a 1700kv motor and 6s on a 16 tooth pinion. It's a little beast for sure.

This is a great read explaining lipo batteries. Sorry if I broke the forum rules somehow posting this.

So a single diff case should be around $45. That's a pretty good price. It took a lot of work to develop these. They hold twice as much fluid as the stock case all while using the stock components.

Default DIY MT410 rear brace and ESC top plate - 1717

Hey guys, been a long time!

Got a little update on my MT410 I'd like to share as inspiration for others. I was never really satisfied with my 4076-1700kv Racerstar motor and really wanted to use a 1717 motor in my MT410. Got some inspiration myself from here and here to make my own CF rear brace and ESC top plate. My designs are attached as PDF to this post, feel free to use, modify, etc. (beware it's on A4 sized paper, make sure you print it out without scaling for those of you across the pond that use Letter sized paper). I used 3.2 mm CF plate.

Gearing is 22/45 (Losi HD diff), for no-load wheel-speed of 63-67 mph on 139 mm truggy, or 149 mm Badland (3.8) tires. Could be a bit higher than needed, but if necessary, I think I can go down to at least 20/45 if I shave down some of the fins of the motor on the position of the mid brace.

Cheers!


1717 requires 4 mm mount-screws


Templates for my DNX8/Talion cross-over and MT410; Proxxon KS-230 with 28012 diamond blade for easy straight (outside) cuts on the outside. Inside shapes done by hand with dremel.










50x50 mm 24 VDC fan mounted to old ESC plate and powered through low-voltage alarm's connector.


Tower brace from 12 mm Polyoxymethylene (POM) rod.
