The medium one JUST gets though the loop in the pull-pal. I'm going to say the XL one might be a bit too big. If the width of the hook is any larger it won't go. Not sure if the width increases on the hooks as well as the overall size.

Nick,

This was a great read!! And your picture's are top notch, I've read through every one of your post on this forum and on the other forums you have this rig on.

Thanks for the kind words!

The wheels are the standard CR-01 wheels. I sprayed them with Tamiya TS-1 White.

So some major damage finally occurred today at the crawler meet. I was wheeling it through the river section at Rock Island and I hear a pop then I only have 3 wheel drive. I thought maybe the STRC rear axle kit might have failed. I still ran the courses in 3 wheel drive, although I didn't complete them and had to winch in a lot of places. So I took apart the rear axle when I got home. Screws and nuts galore, what a pain. Pull the STRC axle and the splines look perfect. Its the splines in the bevel gear set which I blew, but only on what I guess you'd call the "short" side of the axle. Ordered two sets (just in case) of bevel gears, Tamiya part#51326, from Tower on a rush order so I can have them before I head off to PA next Saturday.

No rear axle



taking apart the diff



I only changed the bad gear. Since the diffs are locked these gears never rotate on each other. You can kind of see the smoothed over splines in the old one if you "magnify, enhance" LOL



axle back together



rig back together

yeah that pot metal gear was pretty smooth on the inside. I cleaned off the axle first expecting it to be worn down but its perfect.

Default Many, Many Thanks

I just purchased three Tamiya cr01 FJ-40's for me and my two sons (ages 41 & 35) they both drive and destroy the real thing (thought they and I, would get a kick out of these) your tutorial is exceptional. I'm ordering several hop-ups you've listed. could you list all your electronics manufacturer & model:
Radio, transmitter, receiver, servo, battery, esc. etc.
also what would you change if you could.
You have paved the way for me to build a good ride with your testing and results posted. Thanks Again.
Tom

yes nick has done a bang p job of documenting his CR-01 experience. if i could change anything from the design perspective, i would give it a slipper clutch, such as the SCX10 has, other than that, it is a great rig. as i'm sure you've read, drive shafts will eventually fail, metal ones are suggested if you change motors and/or tyres. have fun, they will be pleased i am sure

Default Slipper clutch

Cydog, do you know the manufacturer or item number for a slipper clutch
that would work in the CR01?
Thanks, Tom

no tom, sorry, i have given the idea some serious thought but cannot come up with a solution other than putting in a whole new transmission. i really like the planetary gear box, th e slipper clutch idea just seems too much hassle, perhaps they will pop one in on the CR-02.....

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing. Probably would have to swap out the CR transmission for another that incorporates a slipper

Disregard the slipper clutch, what is the one thing you changed from standard that you like the best (best upgrade) ??
