I am REALLY tight on money and am not sure if I have enough to finish my revo. (this whole home ownership things really zaps your cash!)
I have in my possession:
E-revo roller with 17mm hubs
New 1518 1800kv motor
Onyx 230 charger (2s/3s)
New trenchers on maximizer beadlocks
airtronics 2.4ghz radio
Rest of truck is totally stock.
No lipo's so regardless of what I do will have to buy a couple.
I do have a full FLM extended pede with Ofna 1/8 buggy suspension all around with MM/VXL motor that I will be selling to help fund whatever decision I go with. Its a sweet truck with amazing long travel suspension, but I really am wanting a 4x4 to do what I need.
I am trying to get down to one truck that can do it all...do some reasonable offroading but also be able to run on the street for speed runs and good handling. I really want durability and simplicity.
In order to run the setup I bought (1518/ 4s-5s) I am thinking the revo needs some SERIOUS money put into it....
Cvd's or LST shafts
Probably Tekno knuckles to handle the LST shafts (and get rid of annyoing wheel wobble!)
New steering servo to turn those trenchers
Anything else im missing?
Anyone want to add prices to my above list? (also difficulty of fitting such said parts?) I know my way around a dremel but dont want a situation where if I dont get it perfect I have to keep buying new bulkheads to make diffs fit.
My other option is to sell both above listed trucks and buy a slash 4x4, put some new MT tires on it and probably the MMP/2400 on 3s.
Again I love the revo suspension and its ability to go over ANYTHING but I dont want to be wrenching forever and constantly fixing things as at this point in my life I just dont have the time or money!
Thanks in advance
