Sitting and trying to fit the Traxxas 1717 engine in The flux. Tested in the E-Maxx today and it was very good.
The gearing are a little high, got a 13t pinjon after dremlat little on the cooling fins on the engine.
Test tomorrow if time.

Everything went fine, Alza cd, wide axel set, HR 17mm hub.
A little movie on the test run.
