    dont you guys hate it when your body rubs the chassis and take the paint away....now you have some clear spots that need to be painted over...so what i did is tape (gorrila tape) the part where it rubs onto the body.

    first i layed out my design lol then, i apply blue first then peeled off the tape for stripe then apply white (just at the section where the stripe is going to be) and then peeled off another tape the X bar at the rear then apply black paint all over to cover everything black.

    you know, when i call RRP company to complain about the tranny metal gears set (revo 3.3 wide gear) that there has been a mistake, one gear is not right....so they send me the right one with 4 shims included and i'm thinking this shims look like i can use it to shim my diffs, so i open up my rear diff yesterday, put one on...test for play...need one more...test for another play seems like it need one more...test it again and its just about right, so 3 shims total. i'm about to do the front now, better do this now or be sorry later hahahhaa.

    see them shims, 6 comes with the gears set and 4 with the replacement gear

    yeah i've seen craig's LS2 diff mod mate and its an awesome mod. maybe one day i'll be able to do this mod too but, for now i'll stick with the stockers....with the proper shims, i should be fine and i'm only running 4s.

    i was having a blast yesterday at the park spending family time with my wife and kids playing at the playground with them and also to myself.....of course... i brought both my RC (boat & truck). first, i run the spartan, i forgot how fun that was to run this boat, this is like my 3rd run since i own it, it lasted me a good 15 or so minutes run before the LVD kicks in then after that i run my REVO-E.

    and for 87 GN, that single 4s finaly awaken....i notice a good burst in every open throttle and it lasted me a good run time of 35 mins,.....just thought you might wanna know.

    I did have the chance to open up my front diff today for shimming...... since the rear take 3 shims i figure i'll put the same amount of shims. close it up and test it for any binding....as i rotate it, certain part of it get a little tight but the rest is spot on..... should i be worry about that little tightness? i have everything put all together now and did test run it and it seems to be OK.

    I always test my diff by grabbing each drive axle between my thumbs and rotate that way. I give a gentle flick with my free fingers; that's how I test for binding. I could never get the Traxxas diffs as smooth as the Losi diffs. I suppose as long as most of the play has been eliminated from the pinion you should be alright. Whwn shimming my diffs, one would always take more than the other.

    Did you try shimming the ring gear and diff cup?? You need 8mm and 10mm I think...

    OK i think i narrow it down to which one i'm going to build next, (scratch whatever i have posted above). i dont think anyone here that i know has ever done it on this platform. Slayer-E GT, now i know 2 ppl did the e-revo GT but, not with aluminum chassis. a very good friend of mine here gave me his tekno electric conversion kit along with the 4s lipo <----exactly identical 4s that i have now, he also gave me the slayer a-arms, toelinks/pushrods amd driveshafts. i have already order parts off ebay today like the chassis, knuckles, bulkheads, steering bellcrank and set of revo screws. i have a rebuildable diffs, just need a gasket, I beam and revo diff case.

    By Slayer-E GT, do you mean a on road electric Slayer? If so, that would be really cool!

    looking at Cameron's GT build the wheel well on his ERBE gt is a tad bit long for the body, the aluminum chassis is a bit short so i'm just guessing it by the picture. lol

    thanks mate, i figure that parking lot i go run my REVO-E wants me to run a real onroad car and not just a monster truck with onroad tires lol.
    its funny how people react when they drive by the parking lot and see my RC truck doing wheelies from end to end that they cause traffic and i have to stop running it for them to keep going lol.

    anyone here ever tried the XO-1 17mm hexes, does it eliminate the wobble? it looks like it has a threaded insert that screw into the stub axle.
