    If you bought an E REVO or ERBE then you already have the blue , silver , and green springs ? The blue and silver are the LT springs , and I think the green springs come on it stock on the rear .

    Did you mean the actual color of the springs is green, blue, silver because all the traxxas springs are red. They have a color dot on the spring indicating what weight they are.

    That was similar to my list. I ordered before I got my revo, so I to have an extra set of blue and silver. I just got some purples as well. Next will be your list of extra parts.

    Got one of two shipments in!

    The other shipment only has a few parts, including the prographix body.



    Now, for the questions:

    Tires - duct tape or gorilla tape? I have heard that taping can cause instability at high speeds. Is this true?

    Should I put holes in the tires and/or wheels for ventilation?

    I bought both 55wt and 60wt shock oil as well as green/tan and blue/silver springs. I also bought the variable dampening kit. What are good combinations based on your experience? I am mainly a basher but like good handling and the ability to do some speed runs now and then.

    I broke my left front A-Arm. Should I just replace it with a stock one or should I switch the entire front to RPM?

    Thanks!!!

    Any tire , taped or not will be more unbalanced the faster it spins , you can balance them easily with stick on lead weights.

    Should I put holes in the tires and/or wheels for ventilation?
    Yes , if you dont when you land from jumps or going over bumps the tires will bounce like a ball unless you put a hole (or holes) in the wheel , I dont like doing the tires because I feel it lets in dirt and weakens the tire.

    I bought both 55wt and 60wt shock oil as well as green/tan and blue/silver springs. I also bought the variable dampening kit. What are good combinations based on your experience? I am mainly a basher but like good handling and the ability to do some speed runs now and then.
    I would try the tan in the rear and the green in the front with #2 pistons and 60wt oil , if it still feels soft too you then switch too the blue rear and silver front springs

    I broke my left front A-Arm. Should I just replace it with a stock one or should I switch the entire front to RPM?
    RPM a arms are great , I would swap the whole front end out.

    Thanks!!!
    You're welcome !
