    Ken Block Edition E-Revo ONE OFF

    If you follow Ken Block on Twitter (www.twitter.com/kblock43) or on Facebook (www.facebook.com/KenBlockRacing), you're already hip to this sweet E-Revo we built for him. Says KB, "I live on a ski resort so I asked Traxxas to set me up with a good RC car that would work in the snow. They really surprised me with this one."

    Chevron tires for snow action, Exo-Carbon wing, custom green beadlock rings, custom paint, custom green-ano'd hubs. Stock E-Revo underneath for waterproofness.

    Some more pics below, and to answer your next question: sorry, not for sale. Number one in a production run of one!

    Very, very nice! But, will Chevron tires fit in a Geode wheel without any modifications? Don't they have different type of beads?

    Also, it would be cool to see a green anodized motor mount, both green bulkheads tie bars, green shocks or springs and green pushrods... Just an idea to make it better for the second batch you're going to sell to us...

    Well, answering my question, it looks like the Chevron 5171 will fit the Geode wheels just fine, if I'm not mistaken...

    Another thing, can we have white sidewalls for the white Summit? Come on, you made 1 green set of sidewalls for 1 person, you can make a big white batch for all your customers?

    That body would be a good seller if they were to just offer that with the decals for the wing, the rest would be easy to do your self. They should sell those Geode wheels in just plain black plastic too, they look better that way!

    I think traxxas should sell monster decals to put underneath the body before paining, I've seen several monster logos done and some look worse than others. A few monster logos make a simple black paint job look sweet
    I like turtles.

    Just spray oven cleaner on them, wait several minutes and all the chrome will be removed and you have the Geode wheels in black...

    Wouldn't even need to do that, Super Clean works wonders for stripping chrome on plastic model parts (last time it too 5 minutes for a bunch of Revell Viper pieces!) , bleach used to work well too, but I haven't tried that on RC parts yet though.
