Todd, you rule, I am ordering some, if my method of hacking the shafts onto the stock outputs fails, i am installing those....

Or if i get bored and need a project.

How do you use a tranny that uses dog bones?
Anyone got pictures?

Pretty easy really.

Just use a Maxx or Revo yoke, drill it out to skip over the tranny output and use set screws to pin it.

Or just put the pin through the slot on the outdrive, I did it. You try it!! It wont come out! Ive ran my torsion with it, and the shafts get smacked and scraped alot with torsions! and plus I cant pull them off. You guys should try it!

if i got a sw2 chassis for a tlt rig what would i need to do to an r2 v2 tranny to use it in that rig? what driveshafts would i need to use, and would i need to cut down one of the shafts on the r2 tranny like i have read about? what exactly do i need to do to use it. by the way, this will be my first crawler.

I'm going to build my first TLT scaler and have a newbie question:
Does anyone use a e-maxx tranny?
I cannot find anybody using it but it looks to me like it would fit right...

Is it worth the time to use in makeing a rock crawler out of the drive train? Can it be geared low enough? As far as i can tell it is a spur gear to a bell gear and a slipper clutch.

Yes i did a search and the only thread on the this set up i could find, the owner abandend the project.

I like the pede tranny cause it is simple and parts are easy to come by. The stealth provides a lower c.g. than pede, but not much. Hope that helps.

I think I'll finally use a pede tranny if I get one not too expensive (living outside the US or GB does not help). I think this will be the easyest way for my first TLT build.

I think the pede is a good choice for your first. If you have any questions ask...I used the alum idler gear too with my first pede

the crawler store provides a list of parts to build a stampede tranny, but what would i need to build a stampede xl-5 tranny because it's better.
