RC10 Stealth Gearbox Gear diff

Post by Nobby Sideways »

Gents,

It turns out that the ham fisted chap that I got my poor old Team car off of had taken all the balls from the diff then glued the cup drives into the drive gear, making one big locked together lump. I've driven my other RC stuff with a locked diff and found it a bit of a handful when the power got serious.

I know I could rebuild the ball diff but cant help but think for my back yard bashing a simple gear diff arrangement would do the job perfectly but without the pesky slipping if I decide to put some crazy brushless gear in there.

Is there any such thing available on the open market? I have what I believe to be the standard stealth gearbox.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Jon.

if you have standard stealth box, the differential will be internal to the trans case, it will have three gears, as well as a slipper that you attach the spur gear to. This is pretty much the defacto standard trans for this case when properly built. I would go through the trans thoroughly, all of the stealth parts are available again. it will handle pretty much anything you throw at it within reasonable limits.

They did not make a gear diff for the original stealth. Pretty much that was a time period ball diff standard. and was an upgrade on every rc car ot go to.

The stealth with the b4 slipper set up should be good for an 8.5 brushelss

Excellent, thanks very much Alien. Jwscab, I should have clarified I was referring to a conventional geared diff design over the ball diff rather than the other gears in the Stealth casing.

yeah stealth is ball diff only. if you were inclined to do so, you could modify the car to put in a b4.x trans which has a gear diff, not sure which one. it would involve cutting a hole in the chassis amongst other headaches.
