    Difference to brushless.

    I've found a great deal on a rtr brushed erevo. I already have a 3906 emaxx and a 1/16 revo brushless. I've heard a few parts are better stock on the brushless 1/10 revos. If so what are they? I'm not worried about motor and esc. I'll get a brushless one eventually.

    Motor, esc and motor plate are the only notable differences that I can think of. The erbe also comes with 17mm hubs.

    The ERBE uses the Ibar in the Differentials too. I don't think Traxxas has upgraded the Brushed E-Revo to that spec yet.

    Doesn't the brushed revo work with emaxx wheels? I have like 5 sets of good emaxx wheels, and I'd be great if the fit.

    i believe all brushed version are 14mm hexes, so yes. there are some e-maxx (not sure what model) that are BL ready which means the diff have the I bar and i could have swear the brushed e-revos are BL ready too.

    According to the current exploded view they have updated the Brushed models Diffs to incorporate the X parts.
    That is great news for guys wanting to make the swap later.

    It's not new so I'm unsure if it's upgraded. Either way. It would be cheaper to convert this to a brushless system than to buy a new one.

    you will know the first time you service the diffs if you have the Ibar, if you don't i think the kit is like $12 at the LHS for the X parts.

    I know eventually they will break. I just wanna go back to 1/10. I have my emaxx and my 1/16 revo but my friend has the 3.3 revo. And I need a bigger vehicle to keep up now off road.
