Good luck with that. I would say find some longer ones and cut them down to size. What are you trying to accomplish by using the Losi diffs? Is there an advantage there? Is it supposed to give it more torque or something?

Put a drive cup on the pinion and put one on the Trans output shaft,then simply measure in mm the distance from center of cup to center of cup

The losi diffs are just built to handle to power. I have coverted it to electric. I'm running 1/8 momba monster just 3s but stock diifs dont last very long

The drive cup for trans has to have the pins for the brake and I can't find one like that. It's 6 mm On the trans output shaft And 8 mm on the pinion. That's the shafts Diameter.Are you Talking about measuring for a dog bone.

Are you a member of centralemaxx? I know others on there have done this conversion and would know more about it than I... But I would say ditch the 3.3 pin style brake and go with the old style brake hex and pad

No I'm not a member there But I'll see if I can sign up. I have no problem going to the hex type rotor I just don't know Where to go to get the parts I need.

You need the FOC for the 4909 Tmax, p/n 5195 FOC, but it uses a 5mm cup.
You can also cut your FOC shaft to the Length you need but you need a 2 grub screw cup to affix to the shaft which are getting harder to come by.

For the 4909 #5195FOC hex brake setup you need the FOC and the parts below, and they are brop-in to your 4907/08 grey trany.
#4966 hex

#5163 5mm cup

You will still have to measure between the cups to get the dog bone length you need.
