Thumbs up Re: Harley's Wraith - *New VP Disc Brake and Calipers!*

Awesome idea for the multifaceted use of the servo grommets.
Most excellent job on the wiring itself

You have done a great job of making your wiring disappear.
Very clean & professional

Very clean man, that BEC could body double as an Amp. You need some little woofers on either side of it! It's looking clean man, very nice

on the under side of the electronic panel you may want to add a piece of door guard to keep the wires from chafing.
that is if you will be routing your wires that close

great build cant wait to see it going!

Daily delivery!

The bomb-proof top shaft came in from SuperShafty. Looking forward to getting this installed. More pics on that tonight.





Also in from Hong Kong, my LED's!

You need the shaft from SuperShafty, the Robinson spur gear (rrp7856) and the Traxxas slipper rebuild (TRA5552x).

I think that's it, I'll let you know if I am missing anything tonight when I assemble it.

The stock Axial slipper often seems like an all or nothing type deal. You either crank it down to the point where it never slips or it always slips when you don't want it to.

So I was aware of the new top shaft made by SuperShafty.com that will allow you to run the steel Robinson 32p spur and heavy duty Traxxas slipper from the Slash 4x4. He is out of stock currently but I went ahead and got the rest of the parts on the way for the setup. I decided to drop down in pinion size to a 13t so that will lower my gear ratio just a hair.

Just finished installing the SuperShafty Top Shaft!

I'm really liking the feel of it already.

Everything needed to get started.



The difference between the stock and beef shaft. You can see the difference in the pin size, but what you can't see is how much tighter the tolerances are on the pins. The pins on the new shaft are a nice tight fit, no slop at all like the stock shaft.

The install inside the trans is just like normal.

Then you slide on the extra bearing supplied by SuperShafty. This is used as a spacer only, it doesn't ride against a bearing surface.




Then slide on the stock spacer.




Now the new pin, you will notice it is a very tight fit. There will no longer be ANY front to back slop in the upper shaft.

Slide on the slipper.




Then the spur and tighten it all down.

Done.

Just went back and looked at the thread I originally installed it in and looks like I skipped that detail there as well.
