Due to technological advancement the fan has been optimized and shortened.
So, no need to try hard to get one of the older versions, the new ones should be just as good. At least according to Plettenberg...

Nice build by the way!
Really like selfmade stuff like this

i never own a Gmaxx chassis, but they use the maxx transmission so i think it will fit in a Gmaxx if there's any material to screw together with the chassisplate

The MGMs have been getting great reviews now that they have the latest software update available, so you should be fine with them- the HobbyWing esc is cheaper, but it seems to have a few issues (Im happy with my MMM for 6s lipo personally)...

that's what i suppose a save setup for my maxx and some spare for future projects

Yep, FLM/ RC-M actually had a similar product for sale briefly that alowed you to mount the 3905 style tranny on the 3906 style chassis- discontinued now as FLM sell a dedicated 3905 chassis, but a few people have made their own basic version too.

yes, but the flm 3905 chassis design is with a plate on top of the brace or not?

my chassis design is with a plate under the brace and it handle the 3906, 3905 transmission and a centerdiff with a lower CG

i think it's time to redesign it again, in a length to use a aftermarket centerdriveline and to go with alternative body's

the mammuth body i use is to short and i can't find other's with a 425mm wheelbase

my thought's go with 395-400mm in length would be fine


for what?
a 3905 transmission or the centerdiff?
or both options?

the 3906 transmission is ok if you have it already(steel idler, slipper.....)
if you start with a new car and want to go for a transmission it's easier with a 3905, in my opinion

i would go with a lipoplate not cellplate (under the brace) and a brace design only for a centerdiff for me

Yeah, the FLM mounting adaptor just bolted ontop the chassis plate, raising the tranny a little- the main problem seemed to be you were limited to smaller spur gears since the tranny sits lower inbetween the chassis braces- different shape to the old tranny obviously.

Anyway, I think its personal preference as to whether you go for the center diff or 3905 tranny- the CD gives better center of gravity, less weight, better handling and fewer weak points, but the 3905 tranny is good/better for a wider range of gearing options and requires less custom made parts compared to a whole new CD unit. Either way, you have crazy design and fabrication skills, so it wont be lacking in that area.

On the chassis length issue, my wheelbase is 14 inches, and overall length is 20.5 inches- thats pretty standard for most MTs and truggies roughly, so alot of those shells will fit without much work. I would look at the revo and savage type bodies sold by Pro-line and JConcepts, though 1/8 truggy bodies may work too.

Very nice looking build anyways!
