    Looks good. All i will say though, is that the forward only conversion is still a better way of doing it. You dont have brakes with your setup, correct? A FOC would give you brakes, which is nice to have and something you really need if you are offroading, etc...

    However, you could probably modify both shift sprags to stay out all the time, which would then give you brakes and act just like a FOC except for the 1/2 rotation of slop it would have in it.

    and dont stress the Motor or esc under hard braking.

    ORIGINAL: cummins driver

    A FOC would give you brakes,
    An FOC or modifications to the F/R output gears would not mean you could brake the tranny/truck with the motor unless the primary OWB was eliminated along with either 1st or 2nd gear.
    Rub some dirt on it, it\'\'ll quit bleedin.

    Snook is right anyways, forgot all about that part. Nothing wrong with your setup radioman. Im all for using what you have already. I didnt realize you had the mechanical brakes hooked up, but obviously that works good.
