I think it is better to jb weld them, but i do know that putting the other spider gear is effective, but there is a little more play....

Default Diff locking

Does any body have pics that close using j.b. weld? And is there some where to get those extra gears?

Locking the gears....there are pics here....just use the search....

All you do it fill the diff where the spider gears sit with jb and make sure it doesn't get in where the axle slip through and where the diff cover goes on the ring gear.....and lock tite the 3 screws when you are assembling the diff cover to ring gear...

I have extra spider gears, so pm me if you have questions....

good luck

From the very first post. I have found a kit on ebay that sells the mounting plate for the servo and the link mount. It comes with screws or bolts to move the bottom links and mount the upper link and directions as well. It was selling as " custom tlt-1 rock crawler servo/link mount"

The truck is still alive and kicking at the MSD shop, aka, my house. If you need any more pics or help, let me know, it has been a great crawler.

Searched that site like crazy they have everything Except the TLT TLT-1

Search did not find it either

Is it really cheaper to buy the whole kit than just buy axles and things to build a 2.2 crawler

I heard there are more options/upgrades for tlt, is this a good reason to use TLT axles and not TXT or something else ?

looking to build a Comp worthy 2.2, advice and tips Very apreciated

thank you

I know it's been a long time since this was posted, but I am new here. I just would like to ask something:

Why is it that they did not utilized the stock transmission of the TLT, and instead used a stampede tranny?

My diy TLT is using the stock TLT and after doing a minor mod to accomodate a 90T Spur and 12T Pinion (48 pitch), the unit is very-very versatile. The height which slighty affects the center of gravity of the vehicle, is something (I think) I can live by.



Anyway, I think I can still modify that and mount the TLT tranny sideways and make a wider chasis. This hopefully will lower the CG of my crawler.

I also noticed that the slack of the belt tends to widen a bit and it probably be helpfull to do a diy belt tensioner. That way I can still use the old and "stretched" belt.

I just made my stock TLT mounted horizontally ... I mean normally it is installed upright, to lower the center of gravity, I turned it 90 degrees. it was okay also.... except that the chasis is wider now.

I think a lot of ppl had problems with the belt slipping.

^^ yes indeed, the belt kept slipping... I had to fabricate a belt tensioner similar to my HPI touring car's belt tensioner.

Yes it is just a great post and build. It is so funny that I see on this forum there are people that can actually put their ideas on paper and then build off that for something that is actually working and good quaity

Yeah, the belts sucked, the center of gravity was worse, and the 'Pede tranny is more versatile and WAY stronger. Parts are easily available for the 'Pede, and it's enclosed so it's safe from debris.

I was a member over on ORCRC before I was here. When you posted this up over there I used it to build my 1st TLT.

I think I told you this before but years ago I somehow found your personal website that had info about your graphics or video work for Sony or something like that. There was a link to your RC vids as well and it was all downhill from there. That was the 1st I had seen of crawling.

I have all your old vids downloaded that you made along with some of Toyo's. One of my all time favs was the Secret Business Park video. I remember having to get in quick to get the videos at the beginning of the month before the bandwith was exceeded.
