View Full Version : Front end of the MERV ripped from Chassis.

Ok, so the whole front end was hanging from the servo linkage. Gonna need, Chassis, Bulks, and front Drive Train.
After perusing the board it seems everyone is keeping these stock? With RPM arms, GPM Axle Carriers, Traxxas Al. Tie rods and Turnbuckles? I figure if I'm rebuilding it I might as well do it all at once.
Let me know the Suggested Parts Hop Up list please?

Get the T-bone set to increase chassis life infinitely lol.

Manufacturer and part #?

I crashed mine against a curb with a speed and noise that normally would mean a ruined bulkhead and chassis at least. The alu bulkhead and front body mount prevented more damage than a broken bulkhead tie bar, an RPM arm and the pin where the arm was attached to. Kinda cool to break my first RPM part...

Search t-bone racing in google and you'll find the site. Then look for the 1/16 traxxas e-revo product.

Definately a T-bone. Put one on my sons MERV after breaking the chassis. Money well spent.

T-bone for sure. i've said it before and i'll say it again, i went full speed into a curb w/ the t-bone, and i just bounced off and kept rolling!

Ok thanks everyone! Looks like a $20.00 rebuild might turn into a $200.00 overhaul.
