My Mini LST 1:10 scale 540 Motor Mod
I'm near the end stage, I still need to get the spur and pinion gears to mesh. Currently I got a 31 tooth pinion gear, need to get a 32 or 33. The reason I need a bigger pinion gear is the 540 can is so big that it hits the center gear-case and the spur and pinion gear won't connect. That's a mini-t slipper by the way.

Any thoughts and has anyone done this before that can give me any advice.. other then my diffs will be distroyed.. lol:D.

I definetly will do some videos...

Waiting on my spur gear I got the Hot Racing 33 tooth 48 pitch Hard pinion gear.

Here is a pic

Hope it comes in soon.

Here are more pics of my set up.

Mini LST 540 1/10 Scale Motor Project
My pinion gear came in yesterday and it meshes barely, I could have gone another tooth up.. Maybe I should get a bigger spur gear but I would have to cut the chassis to make the bigger spur gear fit and not hit the chassis.

If I did that I'm worried I might weaken the chassis because of the cut I made down the center for easy center gear removal like the Exotek Kit. With the cut down the middle It easy to remove the center diffs with out removing the front and rear end... (Sorry off subject)

Now I just need to drill the mounting wholes for the 540 motor on to the motor mount and should be ready to roll...

Mini LST 540 G20 Project
Ok.. My Team Losi Mini LST 540 G20 1/10th scale motor project is done.... Did some runs over the weekend. The 2 cell lipo that came with the MMB was ok but had to bring out the 3 cell to reach it's full potential.. And the diffs believe it or not are still good... But I must admit I did take it easy on the throttle, meaning I did not punch it from a dead stop.
