Dont you mean front wheel spindles and castor blocks?

Dont ever use RPM rear hub carriers, they are junk compared to stock. Too soft.

That is a good looking 30.00 motor Hear good things about Viper but looking at a budget minded 17.5 setup for a Slash.

So another day and nothing showed sadly . Love USPS some days and others not so much lol. Looking at the Hot Racing rear hub carriers along with front caster blocks, would the front castor blocks still work with Proline protrack arms ?

Thanks for the help and suggestions guys

Default Rpm Transmission Housing and Hot Racing Gear Diff

Got a few things assembled and installed. There is a excellent right up with detailed pictures for assembling these items in Phmaximus Project Slash build.

Gear diff from HR is very smooth and easy to assemble.. thank you again Phmaximus and it felt pretty good with 3k fluid
Rpm Transmission housing is a drop in fit onto the Integy chassis



few photos from what has been done.

Battery "tray" is adjustable so no grinding will be required. Can move it front to back without issue but still leaning towards using a short pack.

Installed Castle 5700 20/86 gearing

removed the top deck to install servo (backwards now) and steering rack. Awaiting many many more parts to arrive.

Gonna use Proline Road Rash tires for bashing/street use but would like a nice dish wheel for the track, any suggestions ?

received the Pro Ball diff yesterday. Build construction is good and is considerably lighter than the HR gear diff . Debating to use it in the Rustler or install in the Slash, another thing to consider I suppose lol.

... and no I diddent pay that much for mine, but it still was more expensive than a new pro ball diff from traxxas.

The quality on the thorp parts are unmatched in my opinion

The adjustment is made from the side using a hex key. You pull the axle out and make the adjustment. Kinda like on the RC10.
Works great when you have the MIP dogbone axles! (Hey, i have those.... )

The plastic ones work fine. As long as the weight of the vehicle is low.
You should have no problems with them.
