If you're running a lower kv motor, you'll want a bigger pinion to get some speed back.

Yeah, I knew it was going to be too fast, so I guessed. You think that's a good choice? I still want to be able to do some crazy speed runs sometimes. Also, I think I need to upgrade this to bearings, no? I guess I need front spindles and a bearing kit. Does anyone make a decent bumper for this thing? The micro DT bumper is too small to protect it.

You shouldn't need front spindles to add bearings. I had bearings in mine without needing other parts.

Buy the axles with nuts while you're at it, you'll thank yourself many times over later.

Those clips are fine, as long as you never take the wheels off.

Yeah, I don't plan too, but still, what tool is best used for the clips?

A small screwdriver, and remove them inside a big ziplock back so if the clip flies off it's contained.

OK, been waiting about 3 months now for that backorder motor. What a waste of time. I cancelled it today. looks like they have a new version now but it's out of stock as well. Typical. And the pinion I ordered was wrong anyway. These motors all use 1.5mm pinion and HK stocks 2mm but only 9T in 1.5mm. So I still need a motor and refuse to pay $30 for it. If I use Losi parts what's the point!?!?

In other news, I did get an HXT500 to work with just the mounting screw mounted from the bottom of the servo arm.

Hi, the HK motor the pinion will be a little loose on the shaft.
My way to solve this is: get a small piece of heat shrink and put around the shaft, then press the pinion on it, to finish cut the heat shrink that exceeds the pinion.

thanks!
