    Unhappy Lost on Revo 2.5r rebuild.

    I am lost. About a year ago I disassembled my Revo 2.5r so I could replace some wheel bearing's and A-Arms, but I disassembled all because it was a good time to clean the rest. I disassembled everything and after I lost interest in the R/C world.
    Yesterday, while searching for stuff to do because I was bored I decided to rebuild it.
    here is the state of it. I have no clue where to start. any help or tips?









    Thanks again guys!

    Holy crap.. I'm fairly new to all this, but best recommendation would be to check out exploded views under traxxis's support. Idk if they provide every screw size for every hole though...

    put your bulkheads and diffs together and the rest will fall into place. Good luck finding the right screws to use on everything

    put the bulkheads and diffs on the chassis, then the transmission, engine mount, electronics box, steering setup, body mounts and posts, a-arms and driveshafts, and everything else
    Hows that nitro taste on your electric?

    screws are listed by size on the exploded views. print em out and get er done. easy stuff. after changing out chassis on my nitro and building my conversion from scratch im starting to think i could tear down and rebuild my Revo without the books.

    Dirtyhucker is right though, front and rear diff/bulkhead/arms come together and it just seems to go together much easier.

    when i got my project revo thats what i did, put it together peice by peice without looking at a manual once, took me a few hours to assemble with the parts i had for it. Im thinking about taking it back apart just to have something to do right now

    Also what is a good cleaner? I have heard Alcohol, but man! R/C parts are hard to clean.

    Best but pricey is Nitro Cleaner, second is Simple Green, third is soap and a lot of water.

    Thanks guys! I sure wish it would be as easy as building a lego kit. Well, you know what they say, it's the journey, not the destination.

    I have used Spray9 before. i prefer simple green. Usually at a 50/50 mix. They recommend less than that but i like it to clean fast.

    250 there's a point you hit where you all of a sudden just see the truck go together, trickiest thing is the bulkhead and arm install, past that its cake.

    Yeah, I noticed that, I just assembled the rear bulkhead and It's looking more of a R/C now. it's pretty tricky when you start with the Chassis only.

    haha a box of parts and a bare chassis can be intimidating for sure, take your time and you will be driving again tomorrow.

    there is a little clip that comes with the Bulkheads that you have to pop in there in the nitro chassis, keeps the diff from wobbling in there. the hole in between them is actually for getting at the grub screw holding on the center drive shaft.




    you are looking for the little clips next to the screws

    Bottom pic is the front bulk. and you see where the body tower screw ends up

    Converted a slayer to a revo and them swapped from the 2.5 to a 3.3Plat chassis and built a separate MMM revo on a 3.3 chassis all in the last year. i still have nightmares hahaha. I may not know the first thing about gearing or electrical theory on the MMM but i can build a roller haha.

    Here it is so far.






    I will see you guys in a couple hours when I wake up.
    edit: I was also wondering what part goes from the the front bulk shaft to the shaft that the brakes are on. You can see it in picture #2

    You did a wonderful work today. You will learn how to do it even with your eyes closed. Haha. I'm a Register Nurse and I know where all my Revo's parts are better than all the injections bulbs that I have to shoot tomorrow morning.
