    How do these fit???

    So I got mod 1.0 gears (34/36) for my Slash today... I didn't realize how big they actually were until I saw them.




    I'm getting a new motor with a 5mm shaft tomorrow, but how do I make the pinion fit inside? It seems like it is just too big and is touching against the Traxxas wheelie bar. Something tells me that I will need to get a new wheelie bar of some sort, but I have no clue which one.

    I see a problem with the gear cover fitting too. You'll have to decide how much dremeling you want to do or get a smaller pinion.

    I'm going to be running it with the gear cover off, the surface I run on is pretty smooth anyways. I ordered a Integy aluminum transmission case and ditching the old Slash stock gearbox. I just need a good wheelie bar that won't interfere with the gears.

    If your only after speed you should be able to run without a wheelie bar.
    I'm by no means a slash speed specialist but don't think I've ever seen a speed rig with a wheelie bar; when I was going for speed with a 4wd I would throttle up slowly.

    If you are pulling a wheelie at speed the car is already on its way into the sky. Many people put lead weights in the front end. Surprisingly weight isn't as bad of a thing to a speed runner as you might think.

    Slotting the housing (typically with a dremmel) is the way.

    If you decide to keep the wheelie bar, you should be able notch it with a dremel. No point in buying a whole new one.
