Associated SC5M B5M T5M V1 Split Transmission

3D printed in black nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.
Product Description
I designed this transmission to get easier access to the diff in my SC5M for maintenance.  I was also tired of removing and accidentally tearing my chassis protector.  With this, you no longer have to peel back your chassis protector to gain access to the diff, plus it's much faster and easier to get the diff out.  It is accomplished by the removal of only 9 screws (7 for the transmission and 2 for the motor).  Due to the design of the chassis brace/transmission interaction, it takes a bit of maneuvering to get it in/out, but is still much easier than stock (I'm currently prototyping a V2 version which will reduce this, but will require the purchase of one of my V2 chassis braces).  It reuses most of the stock hardware, but requires two m3x8mm BHCS (not included).

Additionally, the one-piece construction of the bottom keeps any excess oil from seeping through the bottom seam of the transmission.  This is also aided by a small oil retention reservoir that I added to the bottom of the transmission to catch oil that has leaked from the diff.

Mine went together great, but due to the nature of 3D printed parts, yours may require some sanding/shimming.  The blind holes may need to be cleared of powder before assembly (a small needle works pretty well).  Also, please be careful not to overtighten any of the screws, it's good material, but can strip out like other plastics.
