Well I got my DM-1 S in finally (man I love the smell of new RC) I am getting the Tekno conversion for it and have a couple of questions if you guys don't mind.

1 - I thought I read where the Tekno conversion chassis is shorter than the stock one. Is this true? And if so will the lid that came with it fit, or will I need to get another one?

2 - Do you guys keep the 2 speed or ditch it for a 1 speed. Can you lock it so reverse is possible?

3 - I would be interested in the speed and torque you guys are using for servos.

4 - And are the mechanical brakes preferred on these?

I appreciate any help you guys might have as I am new to the pavement.

Thanks in advance

The tekno chassis is the same length as the stock chassis

I have run only with the 2 speed.

Servo 205 in/oz .12 sec @6.0 vt

Mechanical brakes are a must when using a 2spd. otherwise you have no brakes.


Hope this helps

No pics yet, but i have an older blue mbx that now is electric with spool and mamba system. I has a rc monster motor mount and tekno battery tray, with slight mods done to the servo holder and rear stiffner. I have had to shim up both gear areas for better mesh because of torgue with mamba motor. It has DO front shock towers on both ends with Revo shocks and rc4less springs. I currently run as an oval car with a A+ body on ofna road race treaded pre mounts. I cant believe all the things i have had to locktite because of vibration. Ring gears is the latest, had the screws vibrate loose in mid run.
