Hello all,

 

First time Stryfe modder here. After careful consideration, research, and gathering of materials, I was ready to start my first Stryfe mod. My plan is to do a full rewire to run off of a 2S lipo, with Fang Revamped motors and stock wheels and cage, as the lipo charger kind of took up the price portion that would otherwise have been for replacement wheels and cage. I began gutting the blaster, clearing out the battery compartment, removing the flywheels and removing the motors, etc. However, when I got to the stage of putting the new motors in, I discovered two things:

 

1. The stock cage has no screwholes and uses no screws. Therefore I cannt screw the Fang ReVamped's  in.

2. The Fangs are slightly wider than stock motors, so I cannot simply push them in for replacement.

 

I found this (https://www.youtube....h?v=clE3NPeXjhg from 2:28) helpful video, which said I have to dremel or sand out the motor slots in order for the new motors to fit. However, before I do irreversible things to my cage, I am looking for opinions. How have other people dealt with this before? Is dremeling or sanding the only way to go? Should I glue the Fangs in?

 

Thanks in advance.

Well, I decided to try just brute force. I applied more pressure (with my fingers, no tools) and the Fangs fell into place very nicely. So mission accomplished!

 

If anyone has any easier methods they use, something they see wrong with mine, or just tips and tricks, please feel free to let me know, I am hoping I will do more stryfe mods in the future.

Just bite the dart and cut down the tabs. You wont regret it. You can always use anything as a shim to keep the stock motors in place or even the fangs if you remove too much material. I hope you saved the rubber big and tall "8" shaped pieces. Those hold the motors on in a stock cage instead of screws.

Also you can get a 10 dollar acrylic cafe from OOD by worker. Havnt used one yet but I don't think you would need anything else if you got that option. Keep in mind they come canted and in two different crush sizes. I would recommend the non-canted 42.5. The extra crush is fine for revamped motors. They will actually be happier with it.
