Thanks for the compliments guys...

JRH - I used the smallest outrunner I could find on HobbyKing's site, but I think BuckNaked n Wheelin' used it first...

murderface - I used some bulk threaded rod from my LHS and covered it with HD shrink tube (stuff with the glue inside)... slick on the rocks and really durable too...

Mr. Holmes - question for ya (a little off topic but hey whatever it's my thread) - Are you ever gonna make your world-famous Cobalt Pullers again? Or is my future-built Super gonna have to be powered by a second-best motor?

It is taking a while, but I am working on motors worthy of the Puller name again. Using cobalt magnets is expensive, and the advantages are only heat tolerance. The Neodymium magnets can be made stronger, and above 200C is getting silly anyway.

Be sure to post up how the power is on the little outrunner!

With the reduction in this tranny, the max speed is a little slower than stock but the torque is incredible!! Super slow control if I want it, but I don't dare power out of a jam anymore because it just pops driveshafts like nothing!

Hiya, quick question concerning the motor you istalled on the McRc.

Just what did you do to fasten this onto the tranny? Did you cut and shave the 3 outward spreading brackets off on what looks like the mounting adapter and then screw it in?? Or is there another seperate adapter I can get my hands on?

I trimmed off the 3 mounting tabs, then use a small piece of thick paper to make a template of the motors' mount holes, then transferred that onto the tranny plate (with the pinion gear on the motor shaft to get the proper mesh)... like this - motor in place, paper template over shaft - then pinion on shaft - position motor so gears have proper mesh - mark holes with fine tip Sharpie, drill and Voila!!...

This is kinda where the holes ended up...



That was for the long can Turnigy 2000kV inrunner... I drilled holes in the outrunner's base using these holes as a template, then used a tiny finger-drill bit in my drill press to drill the holes to the precise size, then threaded them using a screw left over from the stock brushed motors...

Bringing up this thread I have a question:

I like the wheel speed I have with the stock motor and a 2s battery, but I also want it to go slower with more finess. What brusless motor would you suggest?

It's kind of a case of either/or and not both... you can have either speed or you can have slooooowwww finesse - not really both, unless you find a nice tiny 3S-capable ESC and motor... I looked and could not find one...

Did some more moddin to the rig last night... It seems that 80-plus degrees of articulation was too much after all - kept gettin me into trouble! Had to cut it down to 65 or 70 but didn't have any short enough shock bodies around - so I made some!!

Whittled down some 6065 alum rod to .145" OD...



Next, parted off the soon-to-be shock body at .650" long... The original chock bodies were .750" long - I figured a .100" decrease in travel was a good place to start...



Bored it out to .080" ("piston" on shock shaft was .072") to a depth of .550"... Then drilled the shaft hole to .050"...



Original shock bodies had notches in the tops - hacksaw did the trick...



Kinda hard to see here - installed the top cap and used it as an alignment jig to drill the anchor-screw hole thru the end of the shock body...



Finished product! Just had to do it four times...



The difference in overall extended length...



Installed and ready for action... Reduced the overall articulation the amount I wanted... Installed stiffer springs in the front as well...





Just waitin for the snow to melt now so I can try it out on some actual rocks... Works better on the coffee table anyhow...

Next set of mods - Mini QLO tires with BWD wideners! Stay tuned!
