hey guys, im new to this whole forum thing, but if you could help me id much appreciate it. i have a brush-less e revo with a blur esc and a tork motor (same as mamba monster) but when running on 6s lipo power the hex and rims are shredding like crazy!!! anybody know how to prevent the car from destroying the rims? im ordering steel shafts, foam street tires, and some other parts to make it much more sturdy on road but off road the car destroy itself before i get to! anybody that could help me figure out this issue, id much appreciate it, thanks
Are your wheel nuts coming loose or something? That's the only way I've ever had the hex spin in the wheel and I've used 4 or 5 different brands of wheels on it since I got it. Don't use that little plastic wheel nut tool it comes with, use a 3/8ths ratchet with a 17mm deep socket (or extension and regular socket) so you can torque those nuts down and I doubt you will have anymore stripped out hexes in your wheels. Some blue loctite in the threads is also a must.

thats what i do, i always make sure that it doesnt come loose, but ever since i got the new batteries for 6s power, theres so much tork that the shafts spin faster than the wheels and it slowly strips the hex in the wheel and then the hex will grind away at the wheel, iv never had to deal with this befor so im not sure what to do? im ordering metal hexes instead of the plastic hex, maybe that would help?

alright, thank you very much!
Would you go flip my truck back over??
Are you getting traxxas steel cvds? If you are, i recommend pulling back the rubber dust covers and putting some heavy grease in there around the ends of the dogbones.
these are the drive shafts im getting, there for a tmaxx 3.3 but to my knowlege, the tmaxx 3.3 shafts fit the e revo
any clue if they would be any good? im tight on money and need to get good parts for cheap
and what type of spring for the revo is the stifest to make it sit up the highest?
and does anybody know where i could find 17mm foam street tires for the e revo? i had some hpi phlatline tires but they couldnt withstand going past 70mph and one of them exploded
and what type of spring for the revo is the stiffest to make it sit up the highest?
to stiff of springs will make the truck bounce..
yellow = 2.6
white = 2.9
orange = 3.2
green = 3.5
gold = 3.8
tan = 4.1
black = 4.4
silver = 4.9
pink = 5.4
blue = 5.9
purple = 6.4
Would you go flip my truck back over??
so purple is the stiffest?
I would recommend Summit shafts rather than 3.3 shafts or metal ones.
Definitely upgrade to 17mm hubs asap. 14mm won't like 6s power.
I would also suggest getting castle link software and use it to adjust the punch control.
ERBE, Summit, Thunder Tiger MT4
anybody know a tire that can withstand going over 80mph without balloning??
Pay It Forward.
Why not go for four XO-1 tires. Sure they are slicks but traxxas claims 118mph and ive heard nothin but good about them. I guess the only downside is you will have to compensate with taller gearing which may require some dremeling. You will have to gear 25/36 Mod 1 since the stock erevo gearin is no where enough for 80 mph.
P.S. I know someone posted some pics of xo-1 tires on ERBE about a month back but i cant remember who. Can anyone help or link those pics?

Its All relative to your perspective.
i have hpi phlatline tires and they blew on 6s power in a straight line
heres a good solution dont go so bloody fast lol
from what it sounds like u got a pretty sweet cr minus tire shreding and getting the right hexes, good luck tho.
Not a case of too much power.... you've got too little hex!
The XO-1 tires work great, but at only 4.3 inches, you lose rollout.... you can make that up by gearing taller, but the tallest gearing I've been able to fit is 21/36 in Mod 1. Thats good for a bit over 70...
You'll have to convert to the splined 17's to run the XO-1 tires anyway....
