    Ryobi drill motor in a Slash!

    My God son has had this Slash for around six years. He burned the motor out and I needed a replacement. I had a drill that I no longer had the charger to and was about to throw it away when I had a crazy idea. It fits! Just barely but it fits! I have been running it with the VXL esc and a 11.1 20c 5000mah lipo! I haven't taken an official temperature reading but it hasn't gotten hot enough to where I couldn't keep my tongue on it for one minute. The esc is cold to the touch after two full lipos!

    ues you can! You just connect the negative motor wire to white esc wire and the red motor wire to the blue esc wire. Works excellently!

    It does rather well! I have it geared 17/54 and it is faster than the standard brushed model. If I keep it I will change the gears to 21/50 to get more speed out of it! of the VXL esc could run 4s it would really wake up!

    How many volts was the drills lithium battery?
    I would guess matching that would make it run great.

    If i am not mistaken it was a 14v drill. So a 4s lipo would be perfect to wake it up! I do want to gear it up some

    Looks like a 700 can motor. I like the idea of the brushed motor.

    The bolt spacing for a 369505 Dewalt motor (29mm) is wrong for the tranny case...IF it even fits in the allotted space.

    Edit: That looks like a Johnson RS-775 motor, not a 396505. Still it will be a tight fit with almost no room for gear mesh adjustments if it fits.

    Yea i looked it's just barely off on the screw holes and have two spare tranny cases to tear up and experiment with. There will have to be some cutting to make it fit but that's half the fun!

    Good luck then. What year was that motor/drill from? I didn't think Dewalt had used those J-motors for quite a while.

    I think I've had that drill for 5 years or more not exactly sure bought it with a set for side work a few years back. Clutch have out on drill so just bought a new one and has been sitting or a year or so. So ripped it apart and stole the motor and will be playing with it this week on my down time at work and see what i can do! I'll try and get the info off the motor and post it.

    Ryobi drill motor in a Slash!

    Dimensions would be good too. I know...I ask a lot, lol.

    I have a couple good drill motors too. One is 775 size and the other is smaller, but longer than a 550. Can't find any info on either.

    Haha well I'll see what I can do tonight after I get home from work. I fiddled with it a little just have to figure out how the gear is mounted onto the shaft and remove it! But I did Dremel a trans case I had looks like I'll have to remove a good amount on the rear of the case or try it on my integy case and see how it fits. It is pretty hefty though has a good amount of weight to it!

    Here are a couple of more pictures of my truck. I am glad that I have inspired some other people to try putting drill motors in their trucks.

    I can't believe nobody has commented on your temp reading method yet.

    I am happy everyone has enjoyed my homespun temperature gauge. The temperature on my finger was barely anything so I decided to try something a little more heat sensitive

    Well I took this bad boy out the other day and just beat on it! I ran three full 5000 3s lipos in it back to back and couldn't get the motor above 105f! I am happy with the power and speed since I run it primary off-road. The am radio may get upgraded but it is the only one that is currently working as I have gone through four TQI's since June in my Slash Ultimate edition.

    The temp gauge is comical for sure lol. Got me thinking now lol got a spare hcg chassis and a 4wd with a fried motor. Also have a craftsman 18v drill and right angle drill. Hmmm thinking something might be a brewing 😏

    That's how it started for me. Had a broken drill and a truck that needed a motor. A little trial and error and lots of luck and I have a beast of a Slash!
