Default ECX Barrage Double Motor Tranny

I had a double whammy tranny laying around and decided to put it in the little Barrage. I like full control when crawling and this is always the easiest route.

Hahahaha! That's not what I intended. lol

There have been several people using a twin N20 geared motor setup in the RC4WD D90. I have seen 3D printed ones too. This one is aluminum and is really nice. This motor/ESC setup in not cheap but it is the ultimate in technical crawling control.

I ve got a doble tranny in my gelande 1/18 and itís fantastic.
The new transmission that rc4wd just began to sell I think that will fit in the barrage and itís very cheap http://store.rc4wd.com/R5-118-Mini-T...V2_p_5805.html

That one fits between the rails but it will need some fabrication to make it work. The challenge is that the stock suspension link locations are on the skid plate, and the skid plate is in the way of the new RC4WD tranny. I thought about trying to make it work on mine but the twin motor setup is just way easier.

You can find cheaper dual motor boxes than the one I used. There are 3D printed one's out there and the N20 geared motors are dirt cheap. You could even make your own out of simple plates.

It just depends on your modelling skills and desire to tinker.

I don’t mind tinkering. I’m a machinist and also do 3d printing. Cost vs. effort and time make the best option to just pay and go on sometimes though.

The sumo transmission swap seems ok too but finding what I need hasn’t been easy. Well I haven’t seen anything on ebay or amazon anyway.

You are my hero!

If youre a machinest and like to tinker, you might want to make a transmission like I did on the "Original" D90 I built long before there was such a thing as RC4WD D90. Land Rover Defender 90

Well crap. Now I’m going to feel guilty for taking the lazy way out lol! That’s an awesome build man!

I might just order some reduction motors on amazon and print the plates/box to hold them. Cheap is important because my 11 also has a barrage. I bought mine so I could be a guinea pig for our trucks. We are newbs to crawling.

I appreciate your help. I’ll probably send a pm with some other random questions if that’s ok.

The strongest part of the thing is the servo.
