    I do actually do some very low level racing with the revo when we go bashing, and the adjustment would be nice. However, durability takes priority, and the truck drives horrible when the links strip...

    How'd you break the planetary gears in the first place?

    I've found most of my nitro cars tend to not get gear damage usually, but I'm pretty easy on my cars, even when doing big jumps, and I like...

    Hmm, looks very nice. Interested to hear how it turns out taking a beating.

    I may just do truetrack, but have not made up my mind yet.

    Oh i forgot about that piece of kit! That does sound like the answer. Just wish it wasn't $40 that I don't have right now to spend on rc stuff, lol.

    Hey folks, wondering if anyone else is having similar trouble with their revo.

    Been bashing the revo all summer and it's been a blast. We set up jumps at our local abandoned MX track!

    But...

    If you have the option, and a kick butt servo, single servo is the way to go. I had servos from my 3D helicopter days, and a middle of the road heli servo turns out to be an epic car servo. Brushless...

    I use the OS 21tm in my Revo, and was gonna throw it in my Jato for S&Gs before I sold it, but it's gone. It's a great motor and would do awesome...

    The 21tm truly is a drop in upgrade. I didn't change anything else except putting on a smaller clutch bell, because I wanted more acceleration, but had nothing to do with the engine. The 21tm is...

    The slipper comes loose from factory. Mine came loose right after break in as well. Tighten it down to spec, but do not overtighten. Check that the reverse servo moves fully in both directions when...

    Haven't heard of that ever before in my life for nitro engines. In my years in nitro, I've found the real gains to be made are from 'porting', crankshaft mods, and balancing engine internals, in that...

    Id say what happens sometimes is the needles become out of sync. If your high is really lean and your low is really rich, or vice versa, they can affect each other for a little bit, and create the...

    Interesting. Only a little over a gallon for real? That's quite a short life span man. I have an old OS 18 motor in my classic Maxx, and it probably has about 20 gallons on the same motor. It's old,...
