    If you use the rear bumper support mounted upside down on the front and trim the top of the skid plate, summit bumper fits perfect and looks correct,

    Ya, I went ahead and bought another set to put on my nitro revo. I really like the look.

    I didnt have to modify the skid plate... maybe the Revo hoop is a touch longer than the summits??





    I actually like it with the lights too now that it is that low. I didn't even think of using a rear mount upside down.

    Looks good, even with the light bar.
    I didn't even try a revo bumper support, just tried the one that came with the summit rear bumper since it looked just like the nitro one.

    My mistake, it was an E-revo rear support. Not sure if they are different or not.

    So i picked up a new set of White Blast wheels for this rig. Before i pick up some Phaltlines to tape does anyone else HPI or otherwise make any other tires that fit these particular HPI rims? Im guessing no, but figured i would ask.

    So i think I'm going to start thinking about a Diff conversion for this. I'm leaning towards just using the HR cups.

    Anyone who has them do you need to buy anything else with the cup or does the stock stuff bolt right up?

    Buy FLM cups for the slash 4x4 so the carrier cross support fits without having to grind it down first. I tried the HR and Rdlogics, both made with the same screwed up CNC program. The FLM cups are a perfect fit! I may venture into the aluminum outer housing too but havent yet.

    Bizarre hobbies on fleabay has the HR cups, if you act quick you can probably get the ones I sent back for a discount.

    Running the flm without an aluminum case might help out the spider gears a little but you will still have flex that ruins the ring and pinion

    FLM cups are cheaper than the HR too, good to know they are direct swap with the spider gears and Ibar as well.

    Takes a bit of the sting out of 6 diffs... lol

    Got my HR Double up slipper today. Nice easy install. Also finally mounted the motor.

    I really need to stop trying to buy them though, first time i bought them i got a slipper kit for the slash4x4 in the ERBE bag (but i had a Slash4x4 at the time) this time my shipment arrives with only 1 instead of 2. :angry:
    Seller is posting another one out for me tomorrow.

    Still need to get around to changing out the plugs on my MMM to series Traxxas plugs (its a single deans right now)

    Decided to go with 38/20 Mod1 gearing. 4.7v/cell on Phaltlines puts me at 53.84 mph TTS according to scriptasylum. 57mph on my Truggy tires.

    Only thing im still gonna change out is the Servo. I still need to pick up my 1230tg's... need/want 4 of them... $$$$

    Thanks mate...I've been thinking about getting this for my GT build. Has it pushed your spur gear slightly forward??

    I plan on running Mod1 22/36 with 2/3s running Tekin RX8 2000kv combo.

    cant tell for sure, i didnt have the motor mounted initially. i am convinced however that mod 1 gears themselves push out a tad, they rub on the cover. Mod1 rubs on my Eslayer and ERBE-gt. put a Mod0.8 on and no rub...
    I just cut out the cover like this.

    I cant explain why i get rub, i have torn down and reassembled the entire unit multiple times. Mod1 rubs on my 3 trucks im using it on. I dont run telemetry so cutting out the cover works just fine for me.

    Just out of curiosity, why would you put on-road tyres on a monster truck? isn't the whole point of monster trucks to go off-road?

    I have both. Right now it is set up for driving on the street.

    I always have extra tires



    These 4 sets are just for the ERBE.

    So i picked up a set of Steel CVD center shafts today. Now I'm trying to decide where they should go.

    ERBE, E-SlayerPro4x4, or Summit...

    Thoughts? I would think the best place would be the ERBE, but i beat the tar out of my E-SlayerPro4x4

    Just curious what you guys think?

    I would say anything but the summit, it doesn't go fast enough to be torn up.
