Strong Trans­mis­sion

RC Car Action - - PROJECT -

When driv­ing down the trails, you of­ten come up on rock sec­tions that can be hard on any ve­hi­cle’s driv­e­train. So I de­cided to add some beef so that I didn’t have to do the walk of shame back to my truck later in the day. I started by in­stalling hard­ened steel gears from Robin­son Rac­ing on the trans­mis­sion, in­clud­ing a new idler gear, a new out­put gear, and spur gear with a Gen 3 slip­per-clutch assem­bly. With these new gears in­stalled, there was no way my trans­mis­sion was go­ing to fail. I added more strength to the gear­box by bolt­ing on a ma­chined alu­minum mo­tor mount from Van­quish, which re­duces flex and en­sures that the gear mesh stays the way it should be. It would also help draw some heat out of the mo­tor.
