    Upgrades Needed for CC 2650kv Motor

    Hi all!

    I decided to upgrade from my current esc and motor to the MMM and 2650kv. I will be running 3s lipos, maybe 4s in the future just for the heck of it. What upgrades will I need for this? I already have mips on the front and rear, so that part's all good. I'm assuming I'm going to need 17mm hex adapters, a better slipper clutch, better rear diffs and a stampede rx box. Is there anything else? What slipper clutch and what diffs do I need? Do I need upgraded diffs on the front?

    Will I need better shocks for this? (weight difference)

    Also, what gearing should I use for 3s and where do I buy it? I mainly bash, but sometimes do speed runs at around 100 km/h.

    Thanks in advance!

    Slipper clutch
    Center shaft
    17mm hexes
    I don't think you will need a New rx box.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    How will I fit the longer 1/8th motor on my hcg slash without moving the rx box? What slipper, center shaft should I use and what gearing?

    The revo slipper with aluminum pads is what most people go to. The tekno center shaft has proven itself to hold up. As far as the rd box goes you can mount it up front like it is on the stampede 4x4.

    I have the old slash. I can't move the rx box to the front.

    Yep. What 17mm tyres and wheels would you guys recommend?

    I bought mine used, 1 screw lines up and you can drill another hole for 2nd screw.

    Rpm stablemaxx rims are popular. Mostly any 3.2 wide offset rim. Then just trim a 2.8 tire to fit on it.

    @FROSTYEYE Cool! I'll do that for mine.

    @Jimdog Might just go with proline f-11 wheels. I'm using the 12mm version in my rear. (after stripping the beadlocks) What are some good onroad tyres with harder compounds? I want something that offers a bit more traction than the stock bf goodrich tyres, but wears better than what I have. The badlands and trenchers I have now are give me awesome grip on road when I use them, but they wear so fast. Haha.

    Is this the diff I should get?

    What diff oil should I get for front and back? I don't use a centre diff.

    Another thing - Is it possible to get a 17mm hex that fits straight onto the axle? (not an adapter on top of the 12mm)

    I'd prefer that because:

    1. I don't like the idea of have two separate pieces. A single piece would work better.
    2. Too expensive. Wouldn't it be cheaper if I got a simple 17mm hex instead of an adapter?

    If you don't have MIPs with keyed axles, you can get just about any other 17mm adapter.

    If you want better grip and less wear, the only potential option would be to use larger tires, like 2.8 tires. Less wear requires harder rubber, which also means less grip. So, you use harder rubber, but more of it.

    Check out jconcepts g-locs in 2.8 size. It's a great street tire.

    You can get the mip 17mm adapters, they go right onto the axle itself and not on a 12mm axle hub. I run them on my p4de.

    Do you mean more of it as in wider for more grip or thicker for more wear?

    Thanks for the tip. Will do.

    I'm still at a loss as to what to do with my diff.

    I mean wider. A larger contact patch with the ground.

    Me personally, the stock slash tires in s1 compound (the slightly softer ones that come on the platinum and ultimate) are my favorite street bashing tires. They can be had for cheap online, so I don't worry about them wearing down. The grip enough, but I really don't want a ton of grip on road. Drifting and sliding is more fun to me.

    Are there any 17mm traxxas wheels though? I can't find any.

    Only 17mm traxxas wheels I know of are the 3.8 wheels for the revo or the xo-1 wheels. The 3.8 wheels would look goofy on a slash or stampede.

    3.8 wheels would put more strain on the drivetrain. I don't need to go that fast anyway. Are there any other good options for wide wheels?

    Could always go with 2.8 tires on 3.2 revolvers or 2.8 tire on 2.8 f-11.
    The revolver combo.
    F-11 combo
