SiNiST3R'S Savage Flux Speed and RPM Calculators

Post by SiNiST3R » Wed Oct 21, 2015 3:32 pm

I've made a calc for the Savage Flux for RPM and speed. This can help choosing motor and gearing for the Flux, it will also help accommodate tire changes and give people an idea of what to expect when modifying their Flux set up.

You should make one for the flux with a center diff, basically a direct drive setup, buggys and truggys could use it too

Yeah, I'll do that. The center diff doesnt use the same gearing? I'll have to check out an exploded view of the gear box to be sure I get it right.

The thing about buggies and Truggies  is I need the ring and pinion tooth counts in the diff. I couldn't find any info on my Losi 8ight-T RR I'll have to open it up and count them, but its a job to do for no other reason.

The center diff from ALZA is a direct drop in replacement for the tranny. Its basically a buggy diff mounted inplace of the tranny. It makes the flux much more durable and you can tune the diff. The stock tranny has gear reductions like the nitro. So with the CD setup you would typically run a 10t pinion and a 48t spur instead of the 20/44.

Dayum I'd like to see a pic of that. To rework the calc for it won't take long just need to 1 to 1 the gears in the middle.

So it goes pinion center diff and then drive shaft? Sorry if I sound a bit lost. I need to know stuff like the tooth count on the diff, a visual will help a lot.

Okey dokey I've seen a pic of the CD

Alza makes some cool parts for the Savage, the CD kit is a great example I think it's cool.

So yeah, basically the pinion and diff spur direct drive the driveshaft. I'll 1 to 1 the rest of the gears and leave the pinion spur adjusters.

Very fresh mod.
