Got a 35t motor. What tooth pinion should I use? I was using an 18 tooth with my 55t and it got way way to hot.

made my lexan rear deck cover and had some left over so i attempted a windshield. but it didnt come out to good. i didnt like the windshield kit because it was held on by zip ties.

we had our first snow of the year here where i live so i got to test it out. this thing does awesome in the snow. even with the stock tires, but the weighted ones did a lot better.

i used 2 of the body panel screws to mount the rear and i was going to hing the front so i didnt have to undo a crap load of screws to get to the battery. all it needs is 1 screw on each side right by the upright to hold the corners down. good idea or stupid?

Every time I look at it I think of what I can change next. It wheels killer even with the 4200mah battery still in the rear. Also I broke the front bumper yesterday, right at the top 2 mounts.

my motor works great and doesnt get hot at all with the 2s. with the 3s it got hot pretty quick. should i go from a 16t to a 13t pinion or something like that? also painted my deck lid and made a lexan piece for the bottom of the battery tray to make it solid. i also made my deck lid to open like a hood for easy access to what ever is in there, battery elecrtonics, etc.

i decided to upgrade to some aluminum shocks. i had a set of the integy long aluminum shocks laying around that were for my ax10. im just going to use them until i buy something shorter. i used the stock wraith shock springs on them to keep it low to the ground.

it made it the same length as a stock shock at ride height


these shocks have way to much travel. i put some old spacers on the shafts to limit the shocks

on CKRC there is a set of all 3 gears for $27.99. model#SSCP1000T

rrp is a much higher quality and the 2 gears are only $5 more total than CKRC. RRP part#1551 is the idler gear $14.95, 1552 is the lower diff gear $19.95
