    To further add to this complex issue about the self-righting feature having its toll on drive train components, one has to look at the intended purpose of what the center differential was all about....

    By any chance did you notice if the receiver box light was flashing red as well? The reason I ask, is because the motor temperature sensor can go bad and reduce throttle to 50% as well. It is some...

    Exactly, I don't have an X-Maxx Killer (58113 can/8mm shaft) installed on my X-Maxx, so I'm not really breaking anything at this point. I like not having to take the truck apart every two or three...

    Thank you!

    I really hope this new style of pinion will prevent the set screw from backing out so I don't have to drill a hole in another motor shaft.



    Thank you as always Juanmacine!

    It's Official!

    The ARRMA Safe D-5 Pinion will fit the stock 1200XL Velineon motor with a slight extension of the flat spot on the motor shaft.

    But first I promised to show how my capture idea was holding up as...

    I can't stress enough that is exactly why I am trying the "D" shaped pinions because the pinion takes the grunt of the torque and not the set screw itself being left with the burden of resisting all...

    I think I read that the flat spot diameter on most motors tends to gull wider with use and prevent the D5 pinion from going on. I'm sure that if the flat spot extends all the way to the end of the...

    As I mentioned before, I really liked your list and what you planned for the truck.

    It is curious though, as I was looking over the WFO site and did not see MOD1 gears but rather MOD1.5 gears.
