    I had mashers they are nice tires, and the extra offset is a must. I can't wait to get the f11 wheels mounted up to the trenchers. I looked hard to get the skinny trencher tires. I found the mashers didnt have that good of traction on hard surfaces and the truck was hard to control, but in dirt snow they were awesome. They should also last a long time.

    I'm hoping to dye my chassis soon it should be waiting in my mail box when I get home.

    Well they are a true monster truck type tread, kinda want a little bit of monster truck handling. Also what extra offset?

    No you can get RC tint. Tamiya and pactra have it.

    The extra offset as in wrider is a must. They call it half inch offset witch is really more negative offset that widens the truck. I'll never use a stock off set I don't even know why they still make it

    Oh yeah I know I though you we're saying F-11's had more offset than desperados.

    Desperado's are really a neutral offset. Pretty much in the center but compared to the stock rims they are wider

    Yea, stock is like a dish kinda right? I really wish the F-11's cam in black chrome oh well the chrome should look nice in desperado's too. I'm sure chrome will come out soon though.

    I need a few more parts, anyone have some part numbers?

    Inside or the big wheel bearings
    Shims for Diff and axles to go between carrier and 17mm wheel adpt.

    Which motor mount should i get just realised I don't have the motor mount or motor plate what ever its called. I have a tranny and slipper set up but I forgot the mount and plate.

    I seen a hot racing one but it said 16.8V which i guess is the brushed version.

    Thanks.

    Almost got all my parts.



    Lots of rit dye to do soon.


    Going to mod the chassis to work with these style batteries. I like them because I've just been solder bullet connectors to the ESC on all my trucks.

    Do you have a part number for the I beam. I thought all diffs came with the I beam for revo. What is the stock Fluid in the diff I thought it was 100k. I don't want the truck to wheelie when I'm doing sand Hill climbs.

    I use 500k in the drive diffs and its not as stiff as I thought coming from 100k. But 100k is the most ill put in the center

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-5382...item43b26285b4 it came with 500k in it so i put same back in it.it will still wheelie too.it doesnt work as well as in the 1/16 revo.i heard it stops it from wheeling in those.one thing it does help out alot with is if you slam on the brakes at high speed it doesnt do front flips either

    That's a good idea I had the same thing happen but it didn't hurt the tranny just the center diff I'm gonna give it another shot with the I beams

    Whats the part number on the new and improved HR cups?

    Got the Rit dye done. Never came out as dark as I hoped. I guess one pack wasn't enough in 4L of water.

    so got some more work done can't really get mush done as i'm missing a lot of random parts.



    The diffs don't hold too well in the bulkheads, not like the emaxx anyway. I'm probably going to fill them up with hot glue eventually. once i get some aluminum ones.

    I'm going to have to file away some of the servo so I can get the screws in. Right now the servo is too short.

    Got as much as i can get done now. I had parts missing from my one of my orders like shocks and the mounts. still waiting on a few small parts like pillow balls and hot racing motor mounts.




    Got the Servo in I had to file the fitting gromets on the chassis to it was a flat mount and fit the screws in.

    Yeah this is my first Erevo. I've had a few maxx trucks I decided to try something different this time around. I also got an Axial EXO hoping its going to work better in the sand than my slash 4x4. which did not at all.

    Here is how she sits now and probably will for 2 weeks as there is no hobby shop around here.



    Servo all mounted

    You need to power up the servo & let it center before putting on the servo horn..

    I've had a few maxx trucks I decided to try something different this time around.

    You are in for a Good surprise... The handling difference is huge, so is the durability.......
    look'n good by the way..
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I can't wait to get this Revo going. I'm trying to find a used Nitro now although my buddy has 2 Savage XL 5.9's and 2 4.6 and one savage x with a 5.9, i dunno how the little 3.3 will do compared to a 5.9

    I just ordered the Red GTR shocks and RPM bumper mounts. My summit bumpers with lights should also be here soon.
