Got some rainy, holiday, off day wrench time in today. Start off with the ESP 34 old faithful. Like I said, I'm gonna throw this in and learn to drive before stepping up to the big boy.

New clutch shoes with 8000k spring. Old ones look good still, but might as well swap em while its out.

Now time to sort out the electronics. I will be replacing the servos, especially the throttle brake servo with Savox. Futaba receiver installed here.

Killer bee installed and made it so the whole thing can be removed as one with easy to disconnect connectors on the outside of the radio/batt box.

Back at it again. Strip down was fun but time to start building her back up.

Rcmax bell carrier

Trans opened up and plenty of lube.
20201114_090746.jpg 20201114_090816.jpg
Stock gears removed and Blackbone gears and 2speed layshaft installed and greased.
20201114_093708.jpg
Tranny installed on chassis.
20201114_093924.jpg
Damn rcmax is thicker than the stock bell carrier so time for some mods.
20201114_111128.jpg
I had to move the left brace about 12mm to allow it to mount to the carrier. PVC spacers for now but my buddy @Haric is gonna make me some aluminum ones👍🏽

Now time for the tranny plate and brake plate. You can also see the RCR pads and rotors.

Looks good on there.

Stock rear hubs and tires wouldn't fit because of the 2speed. So guess I need some BRPs and adapters.

DT1 filter fitted.

I'll get to my radio and battery box install shortly.
