I hear ya. I don't plan on overpowering them! At least 2 of them will have can motors. I'm going to set one up with cheapo Chinese twin 380 brushless combo. If that works well I'll do a second that way. The 5th TK will keep the hobbyking esc. If I fried the motor I'll replace it with a 1/8 motor and go from there.

i won't go crazy but I do want a decent power ratio, thinking of getting a 540 sized 4 pole sensorless setup...like the viper rc(if still made) it's like like 150 and should have more than enough power

Hey All, Anyone have a lead on parts from other vehicles that fit? Even with some mod? Just came into possession of one to restore to running condition. Primarily I need dog bones. Going to run two traxxas 12t 550s. Let me know! Thanks!

Unhappy MRC Thunder King Transmission! HELP!

Guys need your help. Working on an ETK and I am trying to get the roll pin out of the drive shaft (so I can replace the bearing). So far, I have the roll pin "flush" with the axle, however, I can't seem to pull it out with pliers and hammering on it with a small allen key, screwdriver, etc. does nothing. Its that tight. Any ideas?Click image for larger version

They usual come right out! Maybe the pin has a burr on it! Try removing it from the other direction.

Thanks for your help! I actually tapped on it with my hex driver and a small hammer. Back and forth made it come out. Installed all new Boca bearings, cleaned the gears and this is one of the smoothest transmissions I've ever owned.
