Does the transmission have a front output to make it 4wd?

At $120 more than a TLT I am just wondering what other parts we can salvage from it.

The tranny is a compact lil' booger. The output is 6mm and has a thru hole, just like the Pede. In stock form the front output has a cap that is a press fit onto the shaft. It rotates with the shaft. pull it off and install your driveshaft.

It's a great donor rig at $189. Tranny, axles, and radio gear. Can't beat it!

Slobin, hard to judge "punch" in a rig that is made to ride on its azz. I'll have a better idea what it's capable of farther down the road. I hadn't put a full pack through it when I got the bug to rip it apart.

Saw this is RC Car this month and looked at it online. Interested to see what the gear ratio in the tranny is. If they say it is a "Wheelie" rig it seems that it should be geared very low for more torque. If it is meant for that hopefully it would be good for all of us. Maybe kinda a pita to mount though and looks like it would have a high COG, motor up high and all..

Aaron, the rig is back together, and I'm not taking it apart again until I'm ready to mod it. The tranny is about 56mm wide (between frame rails) and 70mm or so tall. The motor sits on top of the tranny.

I just thought I'd post up a bit of info that'd be useful to the crawler crowd so anyone interested can go ahead and put'm on backorder.

Those look like the ticket for 1/6th scale builds and the option of steel gears....mmmmm
Do the stub axles look a little thicker than the TLT stub?

many thanks for the pics

Slugz...inner axle shafts are 6mm. Wheel axles are 5mm.

Oh, and guess what....


If you break an inner axle shaft all you have to do is remove the knuckle, slide the old shaft out, slide the new one in, and replace the knuckle.

Two screws to change the axle.

same thing on a TLT with the inner e-clips removed . King pin screws removed and axle slides out.

are the wheels 2.2's? How's the lock-to-lock kuckle swing?

Stock ratio is 21/90 which gives 23.39:1 overall ratio. The COG is high...it's a rig designed for wheelies.

I WILL be building a crawler with this rig. Count on it!

thanks for all the info. just wondering what the axle ratio is, how is the clearance under the pumpkin compared to the tlt and also clearance under the axle tube? definately looks promising!

1.6" under the diff, 2.2" under the axle tube...that's with the stock tires which have a diameter of 5.3"

If you measure the axle tube at the link mounts which hang down...you're looking at 1.6" there as well.

For comparison...

Ralph runs 5.5" tires. I've shaved the TLT axles. Under the diff on Ralph I have 1.7". On each side of that diff I have 2.1"

The axle ratio...

It runs the same diff as HPI's Nitro MT. 38 tooth ring with a 13 tooth pinion. 2.92:1

Just as beatable but not as fast.

Due to weight bias and center of gravity it wants to do wheelies from a dead stop. Once moving it's more tame.

Good info JIA, I wonder how much it would be to just buy the parts to build the axles, or if its worth buying the kit.
