I also need to go through and measure all the hardware so I can order the correct stuff, it's kind of cobbled together at the moment.

What if you fabricated some frame rails like the C34 has where the bottom is completely flush so you don't have as much hangup. That would also give clearance for the shifter arm

There is this video about increasing the ground clearance by lifting the 2-speed gearbox up which also gives space for the servo, but at the cost of losing the middle tray and possibly requiring some cutting and remounting of the shell as well.

Yeah, I did that with my 260 motor and gearbox. I decided to go back cause I wasn't getting good performance with it. I might try it again when I get the 2-speed. But right now, I've got a brushless outrunner in the 260 gearbox

I don't suppose there are metal gears for the stock yellow gearbox? I'm satisfied with the performance of the stock motor but the gearbox gave out while my son was playing with it. I swapped in a spare motor/gearbox combo I had around and we were surprised that it seemed to have a much quicker motor. (Both cans are the same dimensions and both were from a C14 kit. The slower motor is the same speed as the one in my C24 kit.) He did a few wheelies by going in reverse and then hammering the throttle and of course that gearbox gave out. On both gearboxes it is the same gear that broke (the one that is connected to the one driving the output shaft).

Yeah, sadly the tan gearbox has no replacement or upgraded gears. You can buy a new gearbox with the online store opens back up.

I got the standard kit. It came with metal gears, shims, and stronger plastic driveshafts though. The kit version also has the adjustable links

New to the wpl models and have recently installed the 2 speed gear box and v3 elextronics.


Can anyone tell my why my drag brake works for high gear but not low? Thought it was supposed to be the other way around.

It's specifically to save the gears and stuff when your driving faster in high gear. I like how if you're running a single speed, it'll act as a drag brake toggle on/off.

I've got one otw for my C24, how are you liking yours?

Anyone have this version of the WPL gearbox they'd like to trade for a brand new 2-speed? I need a second set of these gears and shafts for a custom setup, but would prefer not to wait 6-8 weeks, lol

I actually love it, the low speed gearing is actually perfect. It can maimtain its speed over/through obstacles....maybe even better then a couple of my actual scalers lol
