    Another e-revo build

    Mods can plz remove other thread

    So recently purchased a used e-revo brushless model with mamba monster and castle creations

    Truck runs flawless so far... And 2 lipos

    So when I got it didn't have a wing now it does
    Needs a few other missing parts no rx box as well
    Also came with the dx3e

    Anyways was wondering how do u guys get the sloppy axle carriers to not be sloppy

    Any help on what u guys use for uploading pics that be cool too

    Plz no judge my grammar or English skills cuz there not there at all

    Where are the pics .........
    sound good, have fun with the truck, the e-revo is just awesome all round
    Put a picture of you axle carries, it can be tightened, you have to remove the cover with one of the tools first and then use a hex key to loosen or tighten to the arms

    There's the screw inside that will bring it farther or closer to the a arm. There's a bigger cap that screws in on the pivot ball, that is most likely the play you are speaking of. If you look through the spokes of your rim and remove the cover you should be able to see.

    The forum performs the resizing automatically.

    Are you using multi-adapters as battery connectors? Something looks very wrong there.

    Oh thanks for the info, I was under the impression that I had to resize them so people with dial up connection will not have problems seeing. Spares me the time of doing a double job.

    .

    Yeah I just noticed those, they don't look right as mentioned, or the batteries set to run in series???

    Nope, just unplug the esc from the receiver and plug it in to the USB adapter or field card.

    Another e-revo build

    3.5 low voltage cut off. I personally like the 10% engine brake.

    I hope you read up on the e-revo and 6s. Get ready for blowing tires, snapping driveshafts and shredding diffs.

    I have the Onyx 245. It is a good charger for the money, however it does not have a storage or discharge mode. Two features that are kind of important.

    Some people have run a pair of 3S packs in parallel for double the [slow] runtime. It's not outside of the realm of possibility.

    You want me to trace THAT spaghetti bowl???
    The ERBE comes stock set up for two battery packs wired in series. So yours is probably not parallel. But I could convert it to that in about 90 seconds.

    My point above is that 3S has been done before, not that you should do it. But for the future, with electric vehicles you typically add the cells of the packs you are using. I believe you mentioned 3S packs. So that would be 6S, as you noted.

    Another e-revo build

    I'd get a Hyperion EOS 0730I NET3 charger (formerly $100, now $125 shipped) and a converted server power supply long before I bought anything from the battery cooker company known as Thunder.

    Check out progressive r/c or buddy r/c for chargers both good company's easy to work with.

    IMO buddy r/c has the best customer service ever, will answer any question about the stuff they sell and won't treat anyone like a ldiot I ordered some stuff on a saturday had it Monday night.

    Buddy's V3 parallel charge boards are great for charging multiple batteries at the same time.

    Nominally less powerful and about the same price as my suggestion, but still a good choice. You won't be growing out of that combo for a while.

    general rule is one amp per every 1000 mAh

    so

    5000 mAh 5 amps
    5600 mAh 5.6 amps
    8000 mAh 8 amps

    unless you are charging two batteries in parallel, then double the amps
    Would you go flip my truck back over??
