    So I went out today and I didn't have much room to open it up but I saw smoke coming from the slipper area and could smell burning plastic. What could be the problem? Slipper to tight?

    Too loose! A loose slipper is a lot of slipping = friction, causes to heat the clutch and melt spur gear = burning plastic

    You may want to remove the gear cover to inspect the spur gear for wobble.

    Just went out again with it tightened, didn't tighten the motor enough so re tightened it and everything is good. This thing has insane power. When the slipper was loose I was disappointed in power but once tightened it is insane! Very happy with this purchase.

    Hehe, i had exactly the same when i first drove the revo. Hmm, thats it? Ok ok, only 4S, but thats it? Then i read the manual and read about breaking in the clutch and tightening it after breaking in. Then the true power was released . + 18/54 instead of 18/65 for some more top speed, and since we have more than enough torque, still more than enough acceleration.

    Would be better to buy new pads. They are tapered and are supposed to go in one way but probably wont hurt

    Well just had the pin fall out of one of the CVD's. Is there somehwere that shows a diagram of mip cvd's?

    EDIT: if the grub screw is supposed to keep the pin in but is covered how do you lighten the grub screw??

    Part #4 is a grub screw on that diagram...you need to bend the ball joint to get access to it to be able to fasten tight.

    Edit: if the CVD is already on the truck you wont get access to the grub screw on the diff output.

    Nope, I didn't have to I just took off the lower a-arm and could bend it enough to see the grub screw sweet.

    How exactly do you make a rear chassis brace? I was looking at tvr's Tor-X chassis brace but its $25 plus $15 shipping. I was gonna get it just for the plate. So how do you make a plate?

    Get some aluminium or carbon fiber plate and cut a piece that goes over the shock tower with the 2 holes for the shock tower screws. Then for the tie rod drill one hole in the middle of the plate, and you're done . Other side of the tie-rod goes to the wing mount.

    Hm, wanted to go for the Tor-X myself too, in combination with a HPP motor mount, but 40 dollar is somewhat too much for just a tie-rod..

    By the way, thats your second option. Get a HPP motor mount, which is a great upgrade if i may believe everyone here, and drill and tap a hole in the center of the HPP shock tower mount .

    IS there any good wheelie bar options with a single wheel? I have the stock wheelie bar but it looks so ugly and the integy one well you know its integy... Any other options? I saw someone made a brace to make the savage flux wheelie bar work but i'm not really up to doing that.

    I wouldn't get the mashers not because they are bad, because you already have the trenchers which are pretty good on any terrain, since you want the looks big joes on axial looks pretty awesome. I would consider a single high torque servo, and the shroud before getting the bling.

    $133 is alot to drop on one item that is not a motor and ESC though. I think I'll wait on those until I need to replace them or have the extra money.

    Mines so tights the white plastic over the light hole popped out. No longer waterproof.

    Put packing tape on the inside of the box and then put CA glue in the light hole.

    So I did http://traxxas.com/support/Different...ion-and-Summit to get the rear diff out and I did all the steps but can't get the bulkhead off the chassis let alone get the diff out. How do I get it out?

    Uhm, i just take the rear wing mount off, then the pushrods + rocker + springs and remove the screws securing the shocktower at the front of the shocks through the chassis to the bulkhead. Then i disconnect all axles and you should be good to go.

    Especially those screws for the shock tower are important hehe

    Yea that thing said nothing about the shock screws. I got it now. So how do you apply diff grease? Just put it around the gear or do you need to take the diff cup off? Also the guy said he dried up the diffs because he thought it was gonna sit on the shelf for awhile yet there is grease already in there.....
