Track Master belt drive

Post by KidAgain »

Would it be possible to convert it to direct drive? Is it just swap out the belt drive gear and top shaft with a spur?

Thanks
Jake

Nope. Side plates are different....motor mounts much closer to the diff on the direct drive than the belt drive.

Okay let’s see how much brushless power I can lay on it then if it doesn’t work out plan B ( my machinist ).

I don't have experience running a Trackmaster trans but I've read that the belts on them tended to slip. That makes me doubt the trans would do well with a brushless. I'm also not sure if the direct drive version would do much better because of the small diif rings the trans uses.

The odds are good that you will wind up damaging vintage RC parts. Why even risk it?
Something clever goes here...

I get it but I don’t let stuff like that bother or stop me though I have my ace in the hole as always my machinist.

Decided to get the parts Cryo treated to add some strength to the gears and shaft may do the same if I run a metal spur for the drag racer build. See how this works out..........
