Don't know. Haven't installed the new setup yet  :wink:

18T pinion with the 54T spur is the lowest I can go with what I could get (only pinion I know this small that suits an 8mm shaft) so if it's still cogging after that then it's the ESC  :(

Ok I had a go at assembling the CEN diff housing and the Associated RC8T 54T spur but the CEN diff housing won't fit into the lip of the spur? Thought about forcing it into the spur by using a vice to pressure fit it in but I would most likely split the cup and never be able to get it out again. It's just too tight. See caliper measurements.

Looks like I would have to order the CEN GST-E centre spur gear (66T).

I would try filing down the edge and the side of the cup. The aluminum is not very hard and it does not need much material to be removed, 0,3 mm from each side is not a big deal. As long as the holes line up, you cant do any damage to the diff.

I'll have a go and mount it in a drill so I can get an even radius around the cup while file/sanding it down (attach the ring gear so the drill can grip the place where the bearing sits) :wink:

Filed down the cup:
Image
Fits nice and snug into the spur gear:
Image
Had to cut down the diameter of the gasket and used 2 to space the spur further from cup so there was no binding:
Image
Image
Had to put 3 gaskets on the other side of the cup to avoid binding as well:
Image
Image

Hope to finish it off tomorrow because it took along time to make sure there was no binding happening within the diff or when the diff was mounted up in the mounts.

Just finished the final install adding some more shims inside the diff:
Image
Image
Image

Added the 1000000 weight oil to the diff. Used some old bolts to stop any oil getting into the threads while literally scooping up the oil like honey pushing it into the diff:
Image
Image

Everything sitting nice in position without any binding:
Image
Image

There was a lot of work involved getting it all setup so I hope this sorts out the issues I was having. Will give it a run later and grab some footage just have to wait for the thread lock to dry.

Manage to take it for a run and it appears the cogging issue has gone. Truck response is just like the Savage Flux Hp so I'm happy :D
Braking is great now and really pulls up. The ESC setting for reverse needs to be toned down a bit.
Motor temp 39-40 deg. Batteries were cool to the touch and the ESC just a little warm (need to get a new battery for the temp gun).
Near the end of the video I have a bit of a play around on the front grass verge. Can lift the front wheels off the ground with ease if I want to.

Approx half throttle or less in the video. I gentle squeeze the throttle on take off. I want to be able to do some speed testing later then I'll start to be a bit more aggressive with take off's to see what the diff's do.

May get it on camera if it happens :D
I've given it a bit more of a go on tarmac the other day and the speed is deceptively fast... bit scary for the weight of the thing.

I am considering on Aluminium thickness that I need to use for my Project.
I assume you are using 5mm. What is the overall weight of your truck?

5mm thickness for the TVP's.

Weight is 9.3kgs with x2 large 4s 8000mah batteries. Take off about 1.6kgs for the batteries.

First off road footage of the truck running.
Gotta sort out the body mounts better for the roll overs. Truck held up well and no breakages besides the body taking a bit of a beating.
