    I never ran a revo with reverse long enough to see a durability issue. As it was, with the 2.5R or 3.3 and the FOC kit, the transmission was relatively bulletproof. I didn't have issues then until I...
  3. Finally made it out for a bash... been a while. 2019/12/10

    Was supposed to be 50F out on Sunday... it reached 35F with 15-20mph winds... :( I ran anyway. Wanted to see how the max6/blx2050kv did in my ERBEv2.

    This truck started as a roller that I swapped...

    If you dial down the punch, it's pretty controllable. I ran my v1 on 4S always and with the punch dialed back, it was very manageable once I got used to it.

    You may want to go with a lower kv motor if your intent on 8S. Guessing the stocker 2200kv is going to get smoking hot in a very short time if you can actually reach full throttle without wheelieing...

    I do it on my 3.8" trenchers on my 6S trucks. Haven't really needed it on my 3S trucks with 2.8" trenchers. Guessing I might if I ran 4S on them as they do balloon a bit.

    The max10sct takes more abuse without overheating and as noted is more adjustable. I used to run the vxl-3s in my stampede, but changed to the castle sct sv3 then to the max10 sct. Now I'm thinking...

    Did a few changes to my ERBEv2 recently. Since my MXL-6S (MMv2) I transferred over died on me I had switched to an old F360C (MMv1) and ran that. It was a bit sketchy, so during a black Friday, got...

    rcscrews was the set a buddy and me tried back in the day when we had t-maxx's. After having them snap off in our bulkheads, we stopped using them. The black oxide mcmaster screws I use usually bend...

    Make sure the chassis bottoms out before the shocks do. I ran into issues when I increased my tire size from 3.3 maxx tires to 3.8" trenchers. I had to move the lower pushrods ends out to a further...

    The standard hard case packs should work. I used SMC 2S hard case in mine and ended up taking 3 of them apart to build 2 3S packs, but still used the case halves for the top/bottom.

    I usually just reach under the body and touch the flywheel with my tuning screwdriver handle. Plugging the pipe works, but it also has a tendency to shove a lot of excess fuel into the engine which...

    I had the 2.8 chevrons on my stampede for quite a while and while it didn't seem to be all that bad, I found out how little traction I had when I put the 2.8 trenchers on it and then constantly...

    I only went with the GTR's because the VDK pistons fit in them. Then I could slow the compression with heavier oil while still having relatively quick rebound to make it less "bouncy" in the rough...

    Pretty sure it's designed to bottom out. If you set it up so stiff that it doesn't bottom out, you end up snapping shock shafts or at the very least burning through shock ends/pushrod ends at an...

    The GTR's will give you more tuning options as you can then run the VDK in them. That's what I have on my stampede 4x4 with the gtr's. I drilled the holes in the pistons out to 1/16" (smallest bit I...

    Still, tough to shove 6S in that thing for those of us with saddle packs for the ERBEv2. Just an aggravation.

    I'm really happy I converted my ERBEv1 to a v2, but I don't want to go through that...

    I'd believe it!

    If I took stock of everything I "upgraded" on my stampede 4x4 to try and make it what the maxx became... it wouldn't be much less! And it's still too small really for the grassy...

    The e-revo 2.0 tires are super heavy too. They weigh more than my 3.8" trenchers. I wouldn't want to run those on a truck as light as the maxx appears to be. That's a lot of rotating mass for it to...

    Stainless steel screws are horrible. They are very soft, strip easy and break easy. I'd rather have a bit of rust than having stripped screws constantly or screws that snap off and leave a stump in a...

    I really like the 2.8 and 3.8 trenchers. I have the 2.8's on my stampede 4x4 brushless and converted ejato. They stay relatively pliable when cold. The traxxas chevron tires are horrible in the...

    I retract my comment from my earlier post, the blue DS3225 kind of stinks. It doesn't hold well. If I lean on it, it will give about 15% of the throw in both directions, then hold. Having a servo...

    I really wonder why traxxas went with those wheels/tires on that thing. Why not go with a more traditional 3.8"? They have 4 or more styles of their own 3.8's to only come out and use a strange 2.8"...

    Yes, I just put that motor in as the 2200kv I had in it came from my ERBEv1 and had 3 years or so of 4S abuse on it. The arrma motor is a bit lower kv at 2050kv, so hoping it won't work the esc as...
