    just dont understand the little trim on the shock mount?

    And the big question, the pinions? the neu has a round shaft... how do you hould th pinions? and what pinions!?
    ok, AWESOME picture you got there! i love the merv with those bodys and the rear wing coming out!

    Just another question, how is the handling one those bodies against the stock ones? any diference?
    I used a Dremel to cut the shaft. I also had to use a Dremel to notch a flat spot on it for the pinion's grub screw. The NEU's can is longer than stock so it hits the stock shock mounts so a little trim work is needed for it to fit (not a big deal). There are plenty of guys that installed NEU motors before me and I have seen them post pictures of their install so I didn't take any pics of mine.

    As far as the body making a difference, I can't tell if it does compared to stock. Keep in mind that the stock or low profile body will not be able to clear the MMP I have mounted sideways.

    Did you ever get a top speed out of this combo?

    57mph was the fastest when I clocked it last (video on post #45). I haven't clocked it with the smaller foams since I never got around to changing the gearing. Whatever gearing I have now is more for my all around setup without worrying about temps. I have a spare 5700kv (4-pole) that I was going to use on my son's MERV but have been slacking. I love the NEU setup for sure especially on my Rally which I clocked at 60mph awhile back.

    My last speed runs have mostly been on my bigger scale XO-1 and 1/8th scale truggies.

    I have done 65 with my 1110 1/y. Couldn't find a long flat run smooth enough to go faster. Most of my driving is in the dirt

    Wow! That's a fast truck especially with a smaller motor. What is your gearing info? Maybe I'm not pushing the 1112 hard enough.

    That was with small foams 3.3" and 35/45 gearing. The 1112 should get up there with ease. As long as you can feed it!

    I did a motor speed test with the castle link and for being a 4550kv turned a fast 5100kv. Just installed some baca ceramic bearings for the motor picked up.another 100kv from less friction!

    Nice work! I think I have the same gearing as yours in my rally and the motor runs cool. I'll look into the new Boost battery you posted and gear up.

    The Neu sure has a lot of differences from other motors I've mounted. I guess I was kind of surprised at the small mounting screws. Seems like they ought to be more robust

    The neu runs cool. I have ran 37/45 gearing with no heating problems and on top of running cool can handle 300 degrees where most motors can't handle 200

I died mine black and haven't had an issue since I switched back to them. just a thought.
    I had the exact same issue with the traxxas upgrades.

    Like in this picture:


    Probably cut the servo blank.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    How are the traxxas cvds for the merv holding up???? I am looking to buy the best cvds for mine after i recently bought the GH Racing ones, which got bend after the first jump, a really small jump, about 50cm height and at very low speed. they are really made out of crap metal. The stock ones are way much better.

    Traxxas cvds are still the best you can buy. With flexible rpm arms they can bend in a hard crash and wear like any other metal to metal set without a boot to hold grease but with good maintenance hold up good

    well i am actually using the rpm arms all round and i wouldnt want to spend $50 on the traxxas cvds to see them bend. what about the 1/16 summit axles? how are strong they compared to the stock merv axles?

    Replacement dog bones are only 8.00 and most of the time can be bent back into shape
    Summit don't compare like their 1/10 scale ones
