This project started off with a friend of mine offering to sell me his E-Slayer with RC Monster 1/8 scale diff cases. I was just going to leave it at that but I wanted to do an aluminum chassis like most of my other builds. I've gone back three years or so in the E-revo sections reading all of the major builds and any other threads that seemed interesting to gain a good knowledge of what I'm working with. I decided quickly that I didn't want the Kershaw chassis because it doesn't have bottom bracing that connects everything together underneath.
I came across a full gorillamax G3 roller on ebay and decided to bid on it. I won it and have it now. It's well used but that's okay. I won't have any qualms about bashing it and just leaving it on the shelf. I noticed that the tranny mounts are bent but that's fine. I plan on running either the RC MOnster universal center diff mount or this new center diff mount made by Unlimited Engineering for their High Voltage Lightning Chassis for EMaxx that will come out next week. He is not selling them seperately yet but I have one of those chassis on order so I will be able to see if the CD mount will fit between the g3 frame rails. It really is a nice piece. I will probably run a Vorza center diff.
I have a buddy that works at a waterjet machine shop so I'm thinking of having the bottom plate remade in carbonfiber or aluminum and setting my truck up similar to this one: https://www.rc-monster.com/forum/sho...2&postcount=31
I have lst2 axles and Tekno carriers that I will pull from one of my embe's for this build and will probably run rpm arms after the ones from the roller breaks. I'm at work till October 17 so not much will happen until then. This will probably be a long build but I want to do the ERBE right so hopefully it will be worth the wait.
I did purchase the first mods for this truck. Hardcore racing titanium p2 rocker arms. I'm really not sure what the best size rocker arms to use for all around bashing but it came with p2 so that's what I got. SHould I go with Long Travel?
Here are the pics of the roller:
I'll have to de-anodize the blue ones
I'm all ears for tips and suggestions since this is my first ERBE build. I know I need to upgrade the hingepins and rocker post but I'm unsure which are the best.
