    I too have the Traxxas wheelie bar fitted. I fit it in it’s higher position (I.e. biggest wheelies) and it works great. Makes them much more controllable than without it. The only problem I have is...

    Yes that is the one I got. It was a little fiddly to line the pinion and spur gear up properly as the motor shaft seems a little bit shorter than the stock one but using a tip from Nickrugger above I...

    I should just clarify with the diff oil weight. As this is my sons truck and he is only 6 I’m only running NiMH batteries in the truck. The weight of the oil takes some of the initial punch out of...

    So I completed the front diff on Saturday. That went a bit quicker and easier and only took 2 hours. The truck runs lovely and smooth now. As above I used the 30k weight Traxxas diff oil and under...

    Yes, as Rick says above, it definitely sounds like the motor is toast. I had a very similar issue with mine after about 5 or 6 times running the truck. The motor basically locked up whilst running...

    Rear diff done. Took me 4 hours and went with 30k weight Traxxas diff oil in the end. This truck is mighty fiddly. Most of the time spent fiddling trying to get little screws or pieces in place. Bed...

    Ah, yes. I think that is a good idea. I might just stock up on the rod ends (part #8646) and save myself a load of money. Rear chassis brace is next mod to be done this weekend.

    Cheers,

    Hi All,

    So Iím looking to stock up on some parts in anticipation of future breakages. I read a lot about broken push rods and toe links however which one is more common in failure? I donít want to...

    You, Sir, are a genius. Either that or I'm just a half wit. I did say I was new to this game didn't I? Anyway as you correctly suggested I hadn't realised or noticed that the motor shaft has a flat...

    Doh! Just seen exactly where you put the washers. Might try that as it should leave me enough space to then line the pinion and spur up properly. Now just need to figure out why the pinion keeps...

    I’m using the stock Traxxas pinion and spur.

    Interesting comments re putting the washers behind the motor plate. Did this not just make the motor plate protrude further from the motor therefore...

    Thanks for sharing and good to know I’m not the only one with the issue with a brand new e-Revo. It took me a bit longer to recognise it was a motor issue as I originally thought I’d just stripped...

    So. Almost there. So close now. Took the truck out for a test drive and the pinion gear keeps coming loose. The grub screw can't hold it tight enough against the shaft of the motor. I've tightened it...

    Thanks for all the tips guys, useful info. Looks like I’m going to need to get myself some varying different lubricants and sprays.

    Guys, All done. Picked up the new EZRUN 4274 motor today from the LHS and this evening I slotted that in. Tested the motor and the gear mesh and all appears to be running fine. All sounding smooth...

    WD-40 Where to Apply & Where Not To?

    I read so much about WD-40 and how good it is all over the truck. Softenís hard plastics to make them more durable, lubricates parts, forces water out of water sensitive areas. Can even be used to...

    I’d been wondering whether that was normal or not too. Good to know it is. This forum is a fountain of knowledge and is teaching me so much on a daily basis.

    Quick update:

    Returned the 4268 motor to the LHS today and told them I had not run the truck since the motor was not right. They apologised and said they’d happily swap it out for the 4274 which...

    Perfect. 4274 it is then. That'll be this weeks project. Only thing is I take the family on holiday for two weeks from Thursday evening onwards. I'll have the truck ready to rock and roll and then...

    OK. Thanks, all. I'll head the advice and resist the overwhelming urge to run the truck. I'll take the motor out this evening and return it at some point in the week and ask them to swap it for the...

    When you get it and activate make sure your phone battery, transmitter battery and truck batteries are all full as it will take 30 minutes + to fully run and update everything. Who knows what would...

    I had the same problem with the truck refusing to turn off. Like one of those ever lasting birthday candles. Just as you thought it was off it would spring to life again. Some how I perfect the exact...

    Hmm. Interesting. Between posting my last post and reading this, after getting home from the LHS, I read the included manual with the 4268 and it does indeed state that it is only suitable for 2 - 4S...
