i just broke my 2nd front bulkhead in two weeks... yes i am a newb.. any way i also broke the front of the chassis.. should i upgrade to a alum bulkhead? and alum chassis? i know it would add alot of weight, but i am more concerned with strength and duribility than weight.. i am soon going to upgrade the motor and esc so it would help conpensate for the weight a little..
so my question is disregard the weight issue and only weight issue. should i go with alum bulk head and chassis, just bulkhead and stock chassis, or visa versa?
if upgraded aftermarket part is suggested what brand should i go with?
An aluminum chassis does not add any strength... one crash and its bent; bend it back and the next crash its broke.
Aluminum bulks may last longer... but the only real cure; stop crashing!! lol
Any of the bulkhead brands work.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
Note the chassis probably broke only because the bulkhead broke.
Apparently the alum. bulk head survives some tough "bumps". But take Jimmie Neutron's advice for sure; and especially before spending the dough.
stop crashing yes most obivious solution.. haha.. its not cheap bein a newb haha.. any way, i went with the alum bulk head, stock chassis, and tbone chassis brace and bumpers.. i believe with the t bone and the alum bulkhead, and a neat litte brace 50togo showed me i think my merv will be ready to handle some of the hardest of head on's, of course i dont think a 50 mph head on into a curb will be protected against.. ha.
so my best thing is to "stop crashin" ha. will do jimmy thanks.
i got some proline road rage tires and i was told they wouldnt fit on stock rims, but i got them on there they seem to be no as tight of a fit as the stock tires, so maybe they dont fit.
what is the rim size of the stock and what rim size do i need for these tires to fit tightly
get a t bone chassis brace

thats the excat one im getting how do you like it?
Stock tires are 2.0 and road rage are 2.2"

Erase inbox and sent tried again says full
so what size rims do i need? 2.2
I got the t-bone full set and its awesome and if ya want to upgrade the tyres go for 2.2" rims in either the traxxas dished rims or the jconcepts rulux is a popular choice with either dirt hawgs for off/on-road mixed or a decent road tyre. Most people go for buggy rear tyres for width all round on the merv as its 4wd and handles nice...i use canyon at's on hpi wide truck rims for off road bashing and traxxas dished with pro-response tyres for mixed use
well i ordered not long ago already recieved them. a new set of 4 stock rims and 4 road rage tires. didnt know they wasnt made to fit on there. i got them on there and they fit but not as snug as stock. so i had to take them off and put stock back on. and since i only run in the street, i like the tires, i guess i just needed to know what rims to go with them where they'd fit. maybe i should have found out before i bought them. but o well you live and you learn.
so what would be some decent cheap rims to get that would fit?
Like aetious said the jconcepts would be perfect. They bolt right up and work great
are they fairly cheap? i dont have much to spend right now..
All aluminum trucks can be fun but require a lot of tuning. I heard some people around here say Integy was sub par but my Integy Emaxx was bulletproof. And if you did get aluminum still keep the a arms RPM... yeah, a lot of work.
i was wanting or thinging about going all alum, minus the rpm a arms OF COURSE, not an option there by far they're the best. but since in not so concerned with weight, considering it is already FAST!!!! and thats stock, you could go castle or whatever possiblities are endless for power, thats why i love this thing. but i could go all alum, and be almost bullet proof, and upgrade motor and esc and still be really fast. since i dont race only bash, i think it would be a great idea, but i would like to know from some one suce as you cipher, how it was you know with possible bending of major parts and all.
but to answer your question i mostly run 2s lipo, but some times 2 stock nimh in series.
so tell me more about you all alum emaxx.
and yall say go to 2.2 in rims, i thought thats what was on it??? what size is on it?
Revo stock rims are 2"
so if stock merv rims are 2 in the .2in in the rcconcepts rims are bigger, do they make a big enough difference to tell
They will fit your road rage and you have more tire selection with 2.2
a lot more
Xtreme has no limiits
im just trying to decide what kind to go with.. i been reading alot about beadlock.. i seen wat they look like but there seems to be alot of debate over them. whats the deal with them?
