    You have to run the rear brakes with the CD. If your CD unloads the front you will have no brakes at all.

    Yea I ordered the rear brake kit and the new style tranny housing but it takes 7-10 days for parts to get to me do I'm just going to drive with only front brakes till then.........it seems like this thing unloads wayyyy to much on concret I guess it shouldn't be as bad on the dirt.

    Shouldn't you be next to the outside wall, before you enter the corner? (Correct me if I'm wrong) At least that should give you a little more room due to the less sharp curve?

    In another thread you asked about limiting "wheel drop". Eliminating the spacers on the pushrods will limit this extension. When you are assembling all these parts on your list, set up one front pushrod with the spacers, and one without, then check the difference. I tried all kinds of setups, in regard to the pushrods. I machined thicker and thinner spacers to try, etc.. In the end, I just eliminated them.

    The ofna 250cc fuel tank is awesome I ran for prolly 20+minutes on 1 tank didn't start showing lean signs till about 1/4 or less and it seems to balance the motor well

    Just remember how much extra weight all that fuel will add when you go to set your truck up for the track next time.

    Amazing the carb is so much easier to tune and tune lasts longer before I have re tune it

    And it works with the Tekno linkage

    Hi everyone, I have been following your race thread and really enjoy reading what you are all doing to your Revo's. I have had my Revo since April of this year but have already modified it for the track. Here is a video of me driving around the track.

    Thanks. I'm new to the track so I still have alot to learn. Your Losi 8ight T looks good. I have that truck on my wishlist. It's hard to keep up with them when I go to the track.

    I am using the Traxxas Response Pro's that have the 1/2 offset but I am looking at trying some Proline Calibers on Zero Offset VTR wheels. I think that might give me better turning? I also did the Slayden steering modifications to increase the turning throw.

    Man that track is amazing, where is it? lol. I would think that having zero offset wheels would help with turning since it is narrower and the weight isn't set so far out from the truck.

    The track is out in Ontario California. Its about an hour from my house so I have only been out there 4 times since getting the truck. They are always changing the layout. All 4 times I have gone have never been the same. I just got some zeor offset wheels and tires off Ebay last night for $14.50 so I am really excited to try those out. The guy selling them said he ran them for one main less than 20 minutes and in the picture they look practically brand new. Proline Revolvers on VTR rims!

    This is another video from the first time I went to the track. Sorry for the quality it was shot with my phone. I can see a big difference in handling and the way I went into and out of the corners compared to my latest trip to the track. I think the center differential, rear brakes and Buku clutch made a big difference. I like it alot better now. I also have the Traxxas sway bars and Proline HD wing for more rear downforce.

    I removed my rear tekno sway bar for more exhaust clearance I haven had a chance to race it since then I only put them on for better cornering so I hope removing the rear didn't. Change it to much ...

    Are u still running the stock carb?

    Yeah having the sway bars made a big difference for me. The truck might push more in the corners without the back installed? I still am running the stock carb. The whole truck is basically stock except for the Traxxas upgrades and the Buku clutch. I am thinking of getting an ERCM pipe next to open up the 3.3's top end more. I hear they are great pipes but really pricey.

    Honestly I would get the carb first it really won't need opening up until your letting more air in I have turned down 1 carb to work and I got it on eBay for $10 stock carb sl
    RB carb this carb does fit but its tight and my favorite the RB tm 523 carb which fits and works 100 times better then stock I think this was my best upgrade cause I get more run time and a lot less headache and tune time

    I had seen your previous posts about the carb. It sounds like a great upgrade. I haven't come across any on Ebay but I might try one out.
