Couldn’t agree more. The PMD 4:1 is a must have with the Tamiya 3 speed

Ahhhhhh ok. I'd need a motor mounted reduction as I modded my 3 speed for an output Shaft on the front as well.

Wow, 90 pound load? Was that in first gear at full throttle?

Do you have photo's of this conversion process? Perhaps you could do a tutorial video for the rest of us to follow? I've seen it posted on SemiJoe's FB page where he converted one, WITHOUT using the "SPECIALLY" made shafts that he once had made. After seeing the pics, & reading about it, I'm still a bit confused of how it's done. I wish there was a video showing the process!

I saw Joes method too and im unclear as well. All I did with mine was extend the length of the output shaft by building the end up with a mig welder, then shaped it on a bench grinder. A bit hard to see in this pic as its in front of the shift rod.
