    i wish they would come already balanced from traxxas or the company that makes the rc's for them you would think they would so you dont open it up and run it on now the 6s lipos that come with it and the wheels are all wobbly like crazy.

    Surgery time i see haha. Have fun doing the upgrades today. Let me know what you plan to do with the parts you take off like the a arms and stuff alright i may be interested perhaps send over email.

    I do like having spares!
    Why would they put a bearing on one side and a bushing on the other?
    Nice to have spare merv parts! Merv steering post bearings are the same size

    now that i'm not sure why they would do that i took mine off and wondered why put bushings in there but then again the merv and e revos have the same thing on their steering posts bushings they leave for you to do the upgrades like that using bushings. i know in my merv when i put those bearings there it helped better, what size are the bearings for that do you know since yo uahve it off? i have some bearings laying around that i might be able to use if i know the size.

    E maxx diff internals are the same as e revo except for the case. E revo design is stronger

    i think i might have some of those not sure i hope they are not the 5x8x4 i have better be 2.5 one's.
    your getting all your christmas presents too early
    my christmas is next year and i consider my emaxx my present still.

    good thing to know that the internals are the same just incase i ever order the wrong part or dont find one for the emaxx 3908.

    so what oil WT did you end up using? you gave me an idea there about using a box for the shock to sit on when i do mine.

    now question when filling shocks and let them sit like that. do you fully extend the shock shaft then fill and let sit?

    I do like this forum getting tons of ideas here.

    I ended up using 80wt with white springs
    Once I work the shafts I extend them let them sit for 30 minutes then fill them 1.5 mm from the top

    So your talking about the Merv right pinions don't fit? I have mine geared 21/65 and has both top end and low end get mix up. Gibe that a try.
    Glad to see I'm not the only one with a scratched up bumper I have the rpm on it but it wasn't too scratched till i got it

    back in the day with the big block t maxx i used to run robinson racing ring and pinions and they held up pretty good i am sure they are made of better material than stock . i haven't ran them enough on my revo or e maxx to see how they hols up yet but i made a few 6s runs with no problems. i would say strength wise so far so good

    You should have asked them to race your merv lol. Did you get to sit in one of them? man would be something to sit in one and get to start it and feel that much power in that.

    did you get the center skid rpm? mine has a few scratches mainly from me rock crawling lol but also when i was offroading over tree stumps.
    I see the watch right there on the side timing your self to see how fast you can install the upgrades? i have to admit i did that a few times like when i took off the motor to change the spur gear and resolder a wire took longer than i thought it would and also when i shimmed and replaced my merv diffs that was even longer than i expected. so i stopped timing myself for that reason.
    man i like when the emaxx is brand new like ashame it wont last long

    whoa now that is alot of weights never have to buy any for years and years to come atleast now you know you have plenty if you need it for something else other than rc

    It is hard to get vids when you have no hands free, no problem if you can only i know spending time with your kids is the best thing instead of taking vids have fun you 2 but not too much where you make the rest of us enivous lol

    ooh yeah i dont like the phillip screws either but stock hex screw stink as well i wouldnt mind getting some from hex screws i think thats what its called the place they make better. its always nice to have new parts.

    yeah they have tons of HP but with your 9000kv merv you should keep up lol atleast on take off but not on top end j/k
