Ok, by the sounds u want to change the gearbox from this car with another car???

just wondering why?? Are u having problems with the stock one?? The stock one can be upgraded with Robinson racing gears

generally gearboxes are not interchangeable. There has been skilled modellers over the years that have done similar things with other cars but it's all custom work.

the reason why i am asking is the bushing seems to be gone that supports the slipper clutch shaft and its stripping gears out, and as hard as parts are to get for this make and model i want to maybe adopt something into which parts are available. a 13 year old boy is driving so things are going to happen

Ah, that sucks... I had no idea parts were scares.

hang on, just looking online I've found a few things...

manual just for referencing part numbers.
http://www.horizonhobby.com/pdf/LOSA...celist.pdf.pdf

but it might be worth rebuilding the transmission.

new housing and spacer
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Losi-Tran...item20ebf5564a

new slipper shaft and gear
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Team-Losi...item5406bfac13

Robinson Racing hardened idler gear and diff gear
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Losi-Speed-T...item35dc63f978

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Robinson-Rac...item5d4ff7dce2

then all u would need are the 4 bearings LOSA6909 and LOSA6908

with a fresh housing and gears, especially those steel and alloy gears it should be a lot more reliable. Just be sure to inspect/rebuilt the slipper and diff assembly. I dare say been old the diff would need new or flipped drive rings and the slipper would need new friction pads
LOSA3123
LOSA2623
