Recently, I bought a Revo, some R/C gear and an OFNA Hyper from some guy off the street. Everything about this guy said to walk away, but I was intrigued with the idea of nitro R/Cs.
So, I bought what he had and headed to the LHS. Turns out I am the proud owner of an early model Revo 2.5r. Also turns out that the engine was shot, the RX power pack was shot and the something about the differential is bad. Replaced the engine with the new 3.3, bought some new air filters, glow plugs, battery pack, EZ start motor (the original had a broken terminal), some fresh fuel, differential ring gear, pinion gear (5397X), ball bearings (5118 and 5119) and some fresh fuel.
I have everything replaced except, I have not been able to remove the rear end assembly. The LHS said the whole thing should slide off with the removal of a few screws. I dont want to perform unnecessary removal of parts but I cant figure it out.
I have already removed the driveshaft cover, four engine mount screws (underside), 2 shock screws that flank the fuel tank and the 2 screws directly below those (also flank the fuel tank on the underside).
But the thing wont budge. I have read a few other posts, but dont seem to find what Im looking for. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
