    Hello all figured I start a thread on my revo build. Start with new brushed revo and disassemble.

    Parts and plan list
    - white rpm arms goin to be died blue black and white camo
    - dye stock chassis and rockers black
    - custom made carbon fiber pieces
    - 17mm hexes
    - rx8 and tekin motor
    - single servo hitec 7955
    - dx3r pro
    - stainless steal screws
    - air brushed body by me haven't decided which body yet (any thoughts)
    - tires undecided thinking trenchers
    - mip axles or traxxas
    That's all off the top of my head have most parts still have a few things to buy will put up some more pics tomorrow. Any thoughts and comments welcome.

    Of to a good start looks like...also id reconsider steel cv I've got the mip with the rpm arms they will not stop bending. The summit axles will keep you going for awhile.
    For the above question the HPP hexes have a nice snug fit no slop & the wheel nut has a built on washer that keeps a good snug fit to the wheel.

    Very unique in a good way! Keep posting updates. I learn a lot from you guys. For example, in reading 87 GN's build thread, I realized that I didn't change to the outer position on the steering servo horns when I changed to the long throw stop. Of course it's in the manual 87 GN keeps referring to. I was wondering why it didn't seem to turn any sharper. It turns sharper now.

    Good olle duct tape. Any one know where I can get some carbon fiber sheet looked locally around where I live can't find any. I'll get on line if I have to but I'd rather get from a store where live which is in the Portland oregon area any body have any ideas of where to get it wether its on line or in the Portland area

    Well I ordered my wheels and tires maximizer bead locks in white will be dyed to match the arms and pro line mashers was thinking trenchers but they where to big don't want that much mass trying to keep stres on the drive train down. I learned my lesson with mmm powered summit with 40 series roc lox it was cool butt was replacing axles or rebuilding riffs every run

    Type hpp hexes or hpp germany into google seach..traxxas summit axles is what most people recommend.

    Yeah the trenchers are some large tires which require throttle control
