    I ran mine all summer on 30wt with the ERBE option silver and blue springs. Add in the travel limiters and it was very stiff, responsive like mad, but very very stiff.
    I am playing with different options now.

    My SlayVo GT8 running on a stock revo 3.3 springs (green/red) with 60wt oil, i also add a limiters inside, using a shock piston from my old hpi (2 each). it act like if i compare to a 1:1 car suspension, its on sport mode suspension with little bit of body roll.

    I'm useing the ERBE shocks and the Revo 3.3 blue and silver springs i think. And that is a veary stiff setup, I drop it from 2ft or so and the shocks do little to nothing. I allways though the Stock SLayer springs where too soft, But aftr this i think they are a good starting point. I just have to change my oil and springs on my E-Slayer then it will be 100% done.

    Okay, I just bought stock Slayer pro 4x4 shocks from ebay taken off the pro 4x4. So i am just going to adjust the preload amd leave it at that. So now the only thing i need help with is the gearing. I have no idea what a good gearing setup for this truck is.

    Any heat issues? I have an 18T and a 40T gears on hand so if that works i will go with that setup. What speed's do you get? Also whats MOD1, Is that 32P? I love electrics i just dont know anything about the gearing setups.

    I get a bit of heat, nothing major. I think it is more due to running in grass most of the time.
    I have never put a gun to it, but on the script asylum calculator on my set up i think it was showing 48mph? i think... Would have to run the #'s and see.

    I call the Traxxas Revo gears MOD1 (nitro) and MOD0.8 (electric) not sure what the pitch is to be perfectly honest.

    Thats a good speed, I just want the perfect gearing so i dont have no heat issues with my motor and batts and stuff. I will probably go with that gearing though because that all i have on hand. Maybe 18/40 will run a little cooler then 19. I drive on grass alot so i dont think there is much i can do other then put a fan on the motor.

    yeah its a great speed for bombing around, always seem to have a bit more in the tank (trigger).
    Like i mentioned im thinking of dialing it back a bit next year.

    FWIW, im running a 40t spur as any smaller and i have contact issues between the motor and ESC mount.

    32p is mod 0.8. I'm not sure the pitch of mod 1. It's a coarser tooth and will not mesh properly with 32p.

    I dont thinks thats a huge issue, Allways can make new screw holes for the ESC mount. I just hope the 18T/40T is a good gearing combo for the E-Slayer. I just hate playing areound with different gears when they are $10 or so a pop. That dose not sound like alot but it adds up. Thats why i like to ask around so i can buy the correct gearing the first time.

    From memory I think Mod 0.8 and 32P are practically identical, and are definitely interchangeable.

    The conversion is 25.4 divided by the Mod number gives the "imperial" pitch i.e. 25.4 div by 0.8 gives 31.75P equivalent, which is close enough - less than 1% difference - that they can be used interchangeably.

    Mod 0.8 is not 32p...they are different.

    No not identical but for our purposes Mod 0.8 and 32P are close enough.
    Mod 1 is 25.4P.

    IMHO, same thing. The difference will not be found without actively looking for it. Heck, 32p and 31.75p, I'm sure the difference is so small it could be mistaken for a tolerance.

    So i just finished up my E-slayer build, ill post some pics up tmrrw, But as for gearing i was getting frustrated. im using the stock metal chassis and the Tekno RC conversion kit and when i tried using a MOD 1 40T Spur and 18t Pinion they would not fit, i could not get the motor to slide over enough to get the pinion to even slide on. the largest pinion i could get to fit was a 15T, so i dont know if thats normal or not.
    so i ended up going with a 19T pinion and the 36T spur MOD 1. Seems to be running fine but we got some snow today so i wasnt able to get a nice test run.

    Anybody with any coments?

    cant wait to see pics!


    anyone know whee to find complete e-revo transmissions? still waiting for a buyer for my slash before i drop cash on the current e-slayer build ( and my SCX10 F350 build, cant wait to get the smoke machine built and running! ) but i am in the process of pricing and tracking down parts. still need a front shock mount, transmission, motor mount, random hardware and electronics. i also need to make my battery trays.

    what motor would you guys recommend for 4s in a carbon fiber e-slayer? im thinking another 2650KV track star but that motor is over kill in my e revo on 4s. i will probably be using another SC8 esc.

    i felt that with the two speed id be just ripping the gears apart, and with the mechanical brake i completly disabled the Motor breaking (set power to Zero) so there is no issues fighting each other. when i push reverse on the trigger the motor looses power, no forward or breaking, just a "Free Glide rotor" and the only thing left is the friction on the break disk from the break servo. to bring the car to a stop.
    If i wanted i could add the 2 speed back in, but for my purposes right now i dont need it, but its an option to put it back

    Still lighter then my e revo that was my e slayer v1.0. As SCT it was around that but as e revo, well, 40 series trenchers are heavy. I'm hoping for my current e slayer build, e slayer 2.0, it will be around 7-8 pounds. cf chassis, e revo transmission and dual 2s packs to make the weight even. With no motor system and transmission its lighter then my slash 2wd by a noticeable amount.

    Here's my eSlayer...I'm running the Hobbywing XERUN 120A SC8 on 2/2s with an associate SC8 body...also MOD1 gearing 20/38 and it plenty fast for what I am using it for. This is easily becoming my favourite ride at the moment.





    and here is a running video of its first run...its so much fun bashing this truck around.

    Rock n Rolla !
