    Tops

    Don't get me wrong the RB is a very fast engine but it lacks a little bit in top speed.
    But it has too much accerelation allowing it to do wheelies.
    The top speed is still faster then the TRX but i want more. I have a 16/36 gearing and my RB still reaches High RpM's too fast, allowing it not to reach high speeds.

    So i'm going to adjust the Two speed later.
    Thanx
    No there's no binding.
    I guess i will have to get the WIDE GEAR RAtio and go to a 18/36 gearing if i want Top speed.

    top speed is nearly the same as the trx. if you really want high speed get a real big block so you can use a 20 tooth cluch bell. thats when you see 60 mph

    Wouldn't this servo work well for stering and fit the revo.
    I'm still using the stock radio system.
    Would it work

    No, that will not fit in the revo. The servo case is much larger than a standard case and it will not fit in the slot on the revo.
    Got nitro?

    i have the Hitec HS-5645MG and have been running it for about a year..the torque is 168oz and the speed is .18 which is a little a little faster then the two stock servos but only has 8 more oz of torque.so for the money you cann't beat it.

    thats a tm with about 2 gallons on it. Gearing for it is 16/36 but I am probly going to try 17 or 18 tooth clutch bell. I cant keep the front end tame. My next color of choice is probly going to be pink. I think it would just be hilarious to get beaten by a pink truck.

    Chris,
    That is one long wheelbase, how are the swayback arms just by themselves? Id rather just go that route instead of cutting up my pink chassis.

    That is an extended chassis and the setback arms. You can see the weld in the chassis if you look closely and the longer distance between the front shock mount and the tranny.
    Got nitro?

    Long? True! We jokingly call it the Limo Revo around here. I set it up that way for the HUGE track at SV Speedway out in Cali. I typically run it with the shorter setting on the arms with the extended chassis but havenít changed it back yet.

    The arms by themselves with a stock chassis length are incredible. Until you actually drive an extended Revo on the track it's hard to comprehend what a difference it makes. The great thing about the arms though is that there are tracks the shorter setting is the hot setup and in 10 minutes you can have it changed. I will be surprised if you see any Revo at the track without the extended arms on them.

    No problem with the axles or the hub carriers Brian, I run the Ti pillow balls as well.

    It's no F3, but then again its actually built to race

    Sounds sick Chris, I have just about everything for my set-up, now all I'm missing are those arms, gotta pre-order a set. (is that a modded 2.5?)

    TEX, they should be out within the next 2 weeks, tower is saying early december.

    Tex, they should be available shortly. As soon as they are released it will show up on the main page.

    Izze, no that one is bone stock. I do have a modded one Dace did that will be going back in the truck. No need to run anything else

    Tops, I just had to get a friendly jab in

    Finished mid pack in the B. Every mechanical gremlin that could of bit me through the weekend did. No excuses though, those guys were on their A game and if you weren't it was tough to keep up. In hindsight I should of stayed with what I know and not made any changes to the truck leading up to the race.

    I can live with 13th in the nation though for my first year racing a full schedule in the Pro Series and it just gives me something to work towards next year.

    Tops, you read like you drive :P. Action is one of my favorite tracks, but for some reason it doesn't like me. Never had a good run there.

    I'm still here, every once and awhile.

    Been doing some Oval testing for the Snowbirds as there's not much off-road here during the winter.
