    Very similar thing happening here. It started after a nice long run a few weekends back and it hasn't been out since. It's exactly as described - a huge power drain. Put new batteries in, it'll just...

    Thanks for all the quick replies! Guess I'll have to pull the mill out and have a look. While I'm at it, I'll look at the compression washers. Is it evident in the manual what the correct arrangement...

    Truck takes off at idle...

    I don't believe my truck ever had this issue before. My Revo (2.5 chassis w/ .21TM) starts the wheels a turnin' as soon as it's started (even when the engine is turning over!) Once it's started, I...

    I did all of the above - disassembled the whole back end and rebuilt the rear shocks. I'm not sure what did it but it's better. Not sure that it's perfect yet but better. Thanks for the tips!

    Unfortunately I do not have the stock ones, and as mentioned in my post, the truck came with integy rockers all around which do not have any markings other than 90T on them. Strangely, I pulled them...

    I too am still familiarizing myself with Traxxas' spring rates and appropriate oil weights for the Revo. I'm used to lighter, smaller trucks so a little guidance would be appreciated.

    The advice...

    Thanks for the feedback on the GH shock ends. Looking forward to putting them on.

    I'm inclined to believe the Rocker theory. Sorry for the noobish question but how do I differentiate between P-1,...

    Preload was set equally on both shocks (arguably too much, perhaps)

    Sorry, forgot to mention it's a 2.5 chassis. The rockers are 90Ts all way around.

    So I'm confused - rear suspension puzzler.

    So I am still getting used to my revo (purchased used).

    This past weekend I was hitting some pretty big jumps with it and after a dozen or so I managed to snap the rear right shock arm at the...

    I do like having reverse since there are no local tracks - bashing is the only option. Mind you they just opened up a Downhill/BMX park just down the road with 4 tracks... reverse still comes in...
  12. Reverse not 'catching' all the time; stripped gears?

    Brief history:

    Bought a used Revo (2.5) with many hop-ups
    Bought a used .21TM. Slapped it in; all was well.

    I can literally count the times I've had it out on 1 or 2 hands. The last time,...

    You know, it was threads like this that made me go for the 21TM and don't get me wrong, I love it and the unit itself sure is a drop-in but the stock throttle linkage certainly doesn't fit. I'm still...

    So I fixed the bumper situation which will make the body fit much better :) I think the previous owner did that because the (actual) front bumper obround part is cracked/mostly broken so he swapped...

    So I picked up a used .21TM. Previous owner ran 30% in it - should I do the same? I'm primarily going to be bashing so I see no need (and have already purchased 20%) but is going "back" recommended?...

    I had to uhh, hide it from the gf as she has no idea I bought this lol. So I snapped a few pics and back into the trunk it went lol. I agree on the looks, too bad I didn't know about...

    Thanks for all the replies!

    The reading I've been doing has lead me to believe that the OS .18TM was a great lil guy but is now discontinued. The .21TM, while good, is expensive for not too much...
  20. Back to R/C after a decade w/ a used Revo: Engine suggestion?

    Long story short: It's been a decade since I've really been into R/C. Back in the day I had one electric (Tamya Stadium Thunder) and a nitro (Kyosho Dodge Ram QRC).

    I hastily bought a Revo on...
