Question Anyone use HR aluminum transmission case?

Hot Racing Axial Wraith 4WD Rock Racer RTR RC Car upgrades and Hop-ups

I wonder how it would work with the Robinson Racing one piece bottom gear?

Thanks for the input.

Ok I will answer myself then....I have read from other sources it works great!! It will probably be on my future upgrades list. I have to lay off the spending for a bit!! I am going insane like a crack addict!!

Thanks guys for the info! I will have to sell my brand new not in hands yet VP ax/scx case I bought and then found out won't accept the RR one piece bottom gear for Wraith. My own fault...hehehe.

Okay so I bit the bullet and bought the HR case! Now the wait is on for it!! You can never have too many parts?? hahaha. It is good to know all the parts I have now will fit in the HR case and I won't need to change up drive shaft ends or anything. In Canada parts are harder to get so my source was eBay!! I am getting the HR case for $45.00 including shipping!!

I bought mine from ebay also. I have not tried the one piece gear but I have installed the axial dig set in it and everything fit good. I did have to wear the shifting rod hole in though. It was a tight fit.

I had great luck with mine up until I sold it...was running the SuperShafty top shaft with the Gen3 slipper...Robinson idler, Robinson 1 piece lower and never had a single issue with it.

I finally got the HR case today! All I can say is SWEET!! It is awesome and all my RR stuff fit perfectly. For Hot Racing I have to say they did a great job with this housing!!

Anyone broke a plastic case.

I'm running gobs of power through the stock case, its filled with Robinson gears.
Does the plastic case deform and strip gears?

When it breaks I'll upgrade it

I just never liked the wobbly plastic trans! It is rock solid now! Before I could see the trans wobbling like it wanted to rip off the skid plate and yes the screws were tight.

I've noticed the skid plate flexing under torque loads. Plastic tranny case seems pretty sought to me.
