G3R Transmission Suggestions - 03.13.2008, 01:02 AM

Hi everyone! I finally have enough money saved up to purchase the Gorillamaxx G3R CF chassis. I have a brand new E-Maxx transmission that I was initially planning on using with the Gorillamaxx single speed conversion. Im not sure what slipper to use with this setup. I also see that Mike will be making a center diff option. I would like to run the new MMM setup with 4s or 6s when it is released. What are your thoughts and recommendations? Thanks!

From Gorillamaxx G3R

Gorillamaxx single speed with a revo input shaft and revo slipper, working good for me!

Welcome to the forums. Looks like you have a nice project going there. I think most go with the G-Maxx single speed or the stock revo trannny and the RCM mount. I hadnt heard about the center dif option from mike. Whered you see that?


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

take out the revo input shaft and you can either cut a bit off the back or drill a hole in the Gmaxx case to allow the back to stick out, works great I cut mine but if I was to do it again I'd drill the case so I have that little sticking out the back with the hole to stick a hex driver through to allow easier adjustment of the slipper. The catch is you either have to run 32P gears from the new e-maxx or use an associated Monster GT spur gear(mod1) and drill out three peg holes to 5 mm and use a washer on the head of the bolt holding the gear on. If you want more details I can send pics, I just did this about a week ago after asking on here too!

I used the older Emaxx tranny with a strobe slipper. If you cant find a strobe I have a modification in my signiture. Nice start up btw.


NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION

I too would drill the hole for the shaft if I did it again. I might do it next time I have it apart.

I put a couple of pics in the linked thread above that shows the new 3905 shaft in the 3906 case and it next th the stock shaft.. It will be a close fit in the G1 tranny but couldn't verify that it would work for sure. It's uses a different size locknut then the Revo shaft. The nice thing about the 3905 shaft is the top gear must be machine pressed on. I didn't see any holes for pins at all. It also look like it would be stronger.
