    Is this what you're talking about?

    I have 500k in it now, but the front wheels turn into pizza cutters, and the rears are spinning so slow I can count how many times they turn.
    99% of people reading this are slower then me

    You MUST have something wrong (like a cracked diff case, ect. )
    There is NO WAY your front end should be un-loading that much with 500K.
    I run 500K in my center diff and have no unloading or ballooning at all. I can actually still pull wheelies in the right situation.

    I concurr theres some thing not right. whats in the front and back the front should be a little heavier. AS for the ofna diff lock its not grease like it says at towers tech notes ,its silicone. you did take front and rear diffs out to be checked and refilled i hope.

    Fuel Tanks

    I've burnt up two motors now due to leaks in my fuel tank covers. Anyone else see the same issues? I know a lot of people have changed out their tanks for bigger ones. Is this also part of the reason?

    Dude,

    Get the orange fuel tank rings, they are much better and stand up a lot longer than that of the blue ones.

    1) Why dit it fail?

    2) Does anyone know of an upgrade or hop up part to replace it?

    Budzeye,
    I do have the orange ones. Came that way from the factory. I still have issues with them wearing out. I will take a look at the tank opening maybe there is flashing there that is damaging the o-rings.

    rgonth,

    Have you replaced the complete tank or have you just been replacing the seal? Either way, put a new tank on there, a fresh one should not have any issues.

    So from what I can see so far the key to racing success is keeping the Revo on 4 wheels.

    Thoughts, comments?

    Yes. The fewer times you have to be marshaled, the better you will finish.

    Exactly...it doesnt matter near as much what engine you run or how your truck is setup. You will always make better lap times if you keep it on all 4's and off the wall.

    ran the M2C set-up all season long(.95 springs, hard 7075 shoes along with an rrp bell). worked better than words can describe. just make sure that the slipper is adjusted correctly, as well. the setup that i ran had just the right amount of, what feels like, a very smooth lockup. i inspected the clutch after each race..........no wear on the shoes or bell. i highly recommend the M2C clutch for racing. pickup the spring assortment to experiment with. but, stick with the hard shoes and an rrp clutch bell/spur. also, M2C just came out with a 3-shoe setup for the revo..........for now, i'm very happy with the 2-shoe deal.....

    What wheels are on the Jato on the right side of that picture? They don't look like the Traxxas dish wheels.

    Zup - I had one but Will Smith used his flashy light thing & erased it from my camera. You can see the wing/mount & notice Tim's bumper looks a lil different?

    Nismo - Tim was using Losi wheels

    Were those rear losi wheels too? Did he just remove the Traxxas plastic hex and replace the steel pin with a roll pin to mount the losi rear wheels?

    I dont really have any body off pics of my truck. There is a pic of it on Traxxas USMT Race Report. Mines the one with $100 bills all over it.

    Nismo - I really didn't look to see how Tim got the Losi wheels on there, sorry.

    Thanks, but I think 150 in the front & 75 in the rear is way too thick for racing.
    I want the power to transfer to the wheel with most traction, mainly in the turns.
    I was thinking 10 in front & 40 in the rear,, I need 500k in CD to tame the Picco.

    Thanks from a Newbie

    Hi all,
    Just wanted to thank all here for the great post. I got a new revo a few months back. Not knowing much about this truck, I began by asking lots of questions @ my LHS. The guys their where awsome, (dont know if I can give LHS name here) But WPB, Fl. guided me in the right direction. I am an old RC E oval guy, but havent raced in a long time. After a few thousand $ lots of hop-ups and many disassembly processes, and reading every post on this GREAT site. I think, I / We (meaning LHS and you here) built a pretty bullet proof Truck, that handle really well. Traxxas I think has done a quilty job in marketing their product, along with support (like this forum) to help with newbies.

    Anyway on with the Report, a few of the guys from the LHS invited me to come along with them to a Local track to watch and help them during their race one weekend to get my feet wet (I mean dirty). The very next weekend 9/15/07 they drug me along with my Revo in toe, after letting my friend shake out the truck, he handed me the controls, I took over and with shaky hands I ran a tank of fuel and it was time to race. When the whistle sounded I remembered that Trucks NEED to stay on 4 wheels and ran a pace I was comfortable. I qualified 6 of 8. The Main I finished 3rd and the truck stayed together with only 2 laps back of the winner.
    Thanks again from a newbie

    I have made a few more changes to the setup to help with doubles and long jumps. I will see if it helps next race

    Thank you for your input, I did some searching, seems most peeps like to run thinner fluid in the rear.
    Not sure if I will try 50\500\10 or 30\500\10

    I have run the Trinity Pipe, Resonator and THS hardcoated. My favorite is the THS. Great power and not much louder than stock.

    Just installed the Teckno sway bar kit on my Revo 3.3 and it seemed to work very well. I used the 2.8mm in the front and the 2.6mm one in the back. One of the buggy guys said that buggies usually use larger ones in the back to help when accelerating out of a corner.

    Has anyone had experience with sway bars and what works better as far as sizes front to rear? I was thinking that all full size vehicles have larger ones in the front so that must be better? But then again full size vehicles probably don't accelerate like an RC vehicle.
