    Cool E Revo 2.0 Parts interchange

    Soo...... with the new E Revo 2.0 out has anyone seen lists of part numbers to tell if putting some of the new generation parts into the old chassis is going to be an option. Looks sweet but out of my budget for a while, so upgrading my existing chassis would seem like a more cost effective path to take.

    Very few parts will be directly interchangeable. Unfortunately I do not have a list yet of what does work, but it will probably be things like the dust boots from the axle carrier pivot balls. Not major components like diffs and bulkheads.
    Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.

    I was thinking the other way around. Have the old trans on the new chassis. I haven't had a problem with the trans on the old one. I'm still hoping that the new bulkheads will mount to the old chassis.

    No. The new transmission case was changed to accommodate the TBCD. It's larger than the previous center differential.

    Will the new bulkheads fit the Revo 3.3?

    Are you sure on that, it looks like the bulks are very similar.

    The bulkheads are not similar at all. The new bulkheads open from the bottom and ditch the separate differential carrier housing. They are massively stronger and more solid.

    Am I excited about the new E-Revo? Oh yeah!!!

    Awww I see, I don't frequent the forums as much as I use to. Gave up the hobby as my Erevo broke not daily but minutely. Bought an Xmaxx 8s when the day it hit the shop floor and my interest has come back. I still own my erbe and a roller or ability to swap parts over would be great, at least it's not going to waste

    Will the new bulkheads fit the original chassis as well as the X-Maxx diffs work with normal Revo shafts or will the new center shafts work with the original trans? Never converted the E-Revo I bought in '08 to anything beyond the Titan 775 power wise, but sturdier parts would still be nice.
    Aw, Biscuits!

    E Revo 2.0 Parts interchange

    What X-Maxx diffs? They’re “Maxx-Spec” not X-Maxx. I hope nobody is confusing the two products.

    i was like how can they be based off the Maxx-Spec if its not the x-maxx.

    all the other "maxxes" look like this guy to me

    Thank you for the clarification I assumed without reading the spec's that E revo 2.0 came with X maxx diff's as i had posted on a separate thread (my bad) because it said Maxx -Spec. Oh well doesn't change the way i feel about this new rig, sooner or later i'm sure the 2.0 and the Xmaxx will be part of the collection.

    Correct me if wrong, but I remember seeing years ago an E-Maxx box saying E-Revo spec diffs. which were basically the same as a E-Revo but in a different case. As traxxas likes to use off the shelf parts to keep cost low I'm going to assume this would be a similar situation.

    I believe your right but maybe i'll be corrected lol it seems at least 50% of the parts i order say Revo spec which are the same numbers and or parts that fit both. As time go's by i'll put more effort into reading and learning more about the 2.0 and if some parts are compatible with the Emaxx i'll surely look into it.

    I'm not ready or willing to stop loving the Emaxx I love what this truck does with the MM2 and the 2200KV and financially any other vehicles at present are on hold.

    It's a different and better design, but the shape is still very close
