Default Brushless Revo 3.3 Single Speed Transmission

I've been looking into dropping a single speed transmission into my brushless Revo 3.3 and have been doing some research on E-Revo/E-Maxx transmissions. They don't appear to be too difficult to get to fit and function properly but I was also wondering if anyone knew if a Savage Flux transmission would fit?

No idea about a savage flux tranny, but of the other two, I would try for an E-Revo brushless tranny. Would like to see pics of that. Keep us posted.

I really like my Flux transmission but I'm worry about the fit in the Revo. I need to find something stronger though because the Mamba Monster just eats this transmission up.

The E-Revo transmission is plenty strong, never seen one break.

Robinson do a full set of steel gears for the two speed, thats the route I went. Never broke it no matter what I was doing with it.

Sounds good. I think I'm going to lock it in 2nd gear.

How'd you upgrade your center diff because I contacted Robinson Racing and they said they don't make a replacement for it?

Hugh, I think you should buy a new one and it should be fin with the RR gears.

I dropped a new E-Maxx transmission in and everything seems to line up ok except for the mounting holes. The gears line up and the drive shafts lineup (I'm gonna need some longer ones) but the placement seems to be ok, I'm just looking for a good way to secure it to the chassis because the cutout for the stock transmission is too big. I'm going to pickup some RR gears later but I'd still like to get this transmission to fit because it would clean things up and it already has metal gears.

The one guy on there said he uses a spool in the place of the center diff. I've seen the spools for the front and rear diffs, but haven't seen one for the center diff?
