    Thanks.Im still new at this.Replacing the bulkhead today was kinda out of league.I watched the guy at the lhs do it.It was like a nightmare to him.It was like a nightmare to my wallet having to fork out $30. for him to do it.Haha.

    I hear that.Ill break out the T-max for the jumps and offroading.Its bad enough I broke a bulkhead and didnt even realize I hit a mailbox post that hard to do that kind of damage.

    I cant seem to lower the body shell all the way down.The wing mount is in the way.How does everyone fix that one?Cut part of the plastic off th body shell?

    I would suggest doing most if not all of your maintenance & mods yourself. Reason why, it's less expensive and in the end its rewarding knowing you did it yourself. Whereas I don't have ANY experience w/ E-revos, I do have experience with maintenance, rebuilding and building of nitro models such as the Jato & revo, plus w/ the forums here it makes doing it yourself much easier & feasible.

    The best way to lowering the E Revo is using zip ties around the body mounts and suspension

    Thanks for all the good tips yall.Im gonna try the zip ties option.I am worried about cutting on the bodyshell though,it may split.Is their anything good to put around the area I cut to avoid it tearing?

    Lowering The ERBE

    No ones mentioned decreasing the shock preload. I thoughtd thatd be the quickest way to lower the ride height

    i you are running exclusively street, i would also recommend using some limiters in the shocks. Takes the downward travel out of the equation and slams the rig down to the ground.

    You can get it pretty darn low... im actually thinking of raising the front a tad by removing one of the spacers up front, now that i have the big bumper installed.
    As it is, this is my ERBE-gt i have 13mm of limiting in the shocks and it is super low.

    Front ride height


    Rear height


    Granted this is on slayer arms, so the drop may or may not be the same on Revo arms, im far from a math guy to figure out that geometry haha.

    What gains do you get from using slayer arms? Also what tires are you running?
