word of worning, the trenchers you linked require a different rim. you need sc rims and i dont know of any pin drive sc rims (though i've never looked).

The associated sc10 rims are pins or maybe they switched. My sc10 has pins but its three years old. I have the trenchers for my slash 4x4 and they are great. But they will wear very fast on pavement.

DO you just replace the plastic gear with the metal one? Does everything line up?

are you talking about the diff or the trans. I've seen people put the metal gear in the trans. I'm not sure about the diff though....I'm curious about it myself.

i believe so. the trans case is the same, so i'd imagine that's all that's needed.

Thanks. It help alot. I'm planning on putting a Venom 11.1v 35C lipo battery in my Evader. I noticed you can buy it with 20C and 25C and 40C. What's the "C" stand for, and which one is the most powerful?

C rating is essentially a current multiplier. take the capacity, multiply it by the C and that's the total current the battery can handle. using a 5000 mah for example, a 25c can deliver 125 amps and a 40c can give 200 amps.

sort of. the motor will take what it needs and not a milliamp more, the C dictates how much the battery can handle. honestly, anything over 40c is lost on 1/10 scale.

I want to offer the ESC and Motor as much current as it will take. So would a 35C do the job?

depends what system you're running. i'm too lazy to go looking. the most powerful 1/10 scale system i can thing of only draws 100 amps. what's the MAH of the battery?

I'm running a 3500kv motor and a 200amp ESC. The battery I want to get is a 5000mah 35C. It's a Venom battery.

i used to run a 60a 4000kv ezrun. i dismantled my ext2 back in feb to put the electronics into a tamiya df02. a 5000mah 40c gens ace pack gave me 50 minutes of runtime in the evader.
