    New erevo!

    Just got a e revo today and am stoked. What's some good mods? Planning on doing rpm arms, and either springs or shocks.

    This is what I had when I very rarely walked away broke.

    Steel hollow balls (7028x) to reduce slop
    3M mushroom tape along battery doors to hold the body on
    Aluminum knuckles to reduce slop and add strength (I have HR but recommend GPM or GH)
    A BlueBird 390 servo due to the stock being known to fry/strip itself
    RPM a arms at all four corners (Front-80692, Rear-80602)
    Center differential (7014) upgrade to help handle the power of
    2200mah 2S 20C LiPo's ran in parallel for ~1 hour run times
    23/50 gearing gets me to ~30mph yet keeps temps in check
    Shimmed front and rear bulkheads... *LINK*

    Especially do that last part... extremely cheap preventative procedure.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    If you are going to order RPM arms...I'd get the RPM bumpers at the same time.
    The factory Revo bumpers don't offer much protection.
    A center diff mod will help keep the front end on the ground too.

    SPC makes a great pack.... 2500 mAh so even more run time.

    The center diff mod is a swap out to the center diff over the stock spool.

    Center diff replaces a gear in the transmission shifting power to the front wheels. Good for turns on a track and on the street cuts down on the wheelies but makes the front tires balloon

    Not sure I would jump on the center diff. Some like it and some do not. I have never installed one but I don't think I would like it much at all. I personaly like a locked rear diff because it is much easier to slide the rear then have it constaly putting power into the air(a tire spinning).

    The key to remember what ever you upgrade will not be what you brake. Not only because you uupgraded it but that is how things work out. You upgrade arms you snap a chassis, you add a T-Bone skid plate and you will brake arms.

    I say enjoy the truck for a little wile and see if you brake anything. Then see what you want the truck to do better for you and that will tell you what you need to change or upgrade.
