Thanks dez for the picts.
Do you have any picts of the losi XXX Slipper clutch, spur gear assembly? Or any one else.

Great tech article

Just wondering if some mesurements might be useful to those that build a chassis, be it some of the big name vendors here, or the guy building something "revolutionary" in his dimly lit shop at home.

Oh, just to let you know the XX Tranny shot I uploaded, the slipper and spur gear are not setup like stock, that is a custom peice on the shaft I put together.

If you ever have the tranny out, I would love a opened up side view of it like the others as well.

If I ever end up getting a different chassis I will get you pics of the internals, but that is about the only reason it will ever come out. I am sure I will do something with it eventually, but not for another couple months.

great write up dez
i have been thinking about upgrading to a r2 tranny from my current tranny a stampede. the only thing im a little unsure about is the BIG difference in the gear ratio's. going from a 2.61 to a 10:1 sounds like my comp rig would literally be "crawling". i like a little wheel speed ya know. will i be able to make up the difference with a bigger pinion? it looks a little small inside the case and i think i heard someone say their was a limit to how big a gear you could fit.

any advise you can throw at me would be much appreciated

You could always run a motor w/ less turns (35t for example) and add a few cells to the mix!

X2
Or ideas on eliminating it, other than putting screws in it.
(I'm searching now. Which is how I found this thread)
I can't get the slipper figured out...

There are slipper eliminators available, the dirt oval guys use them often.

Dez, you forgot about this. It's a GT2 tranny. It's smaller & lower than all previous stealth's, it also has an internal ratio of 4:1. Here's a pic of it with a spool I made from a NTC3 spool. You can see the new stepped idler gear.

I have a jato tranny I was thinking about using. Does anybody know the gear ratio of a jato w/ the single speed conversion in it? I found this:

Gear Ratio (1st Gear)
* 11.73:1 (total gear reduction)

Gear Ratio (2nd Gear)*
8.75:1 (total gear reduction)

But nothing about the single speed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Any more info on this tranny Sheldon? I would love to see it installed.

What about the spur/slipper/motor plate setup?

Being a nitro tranny I'm assuming that you would have to fab your own motor plate?

Here's a pic of it installed in my 2.2. You would have to fab your own spur/motor plate set-up. I did a reverse cowgirl style.

Thats a great write up thanks for the info. I was wondering about the electric Traxxas Hawk transmission.
Are these any good for crawlers and has anybody used one. I got a couple Hawks just sitting on the shelf.

Yes but you have to remember that the 2.72 is only the internal ratio. That is excluding the spur and pinion combo. The R2 is all-in-one.

For you guys running a Losi tranny, I think these can be used in both double and triple X models, and can be used with minor mod to install Traxxas drive shafts
