    E-Revo Model# 56087-3

    Howdy folks!

    I have been doing a lot of reading and YouTubing about the E-Revo Brushless and with their newest model out I was wondering what problems were folks having right out of the box and what upgrades should I buy right along side the purchase of the E- Revo Model# 56087-3? As of right now my purchase is going to be the truck 2 sets of Venom 35C 3S 11.1V 5000mAh LiPO Hardcase Flat Pack Battery with Universal Plug, Venom Pro 3 Charger 7Amp RC LiPO and NiMH Battery Balance AC/DC Powered & new tires which I would like suggestions on and a couple drive shafts and a couple blank canvas body shells to customize myself from my LHS! I appreciate any and all help with suggestions thanks!

    Tires.

    Depends greatly on what you want to do with the truck and where you'll be running it.
    -For bashing in loose dirt or sand I would recommend badlands. I have them and love them.
    -For racing or bashing on hard packed dirt I would recommend a finer, pin type tire like blockades.
    -For street use, anacondas are hard to beat. They offer less grip than other tires but wear much better. They still grip enough for me though.

    Be ready for 6s drivetrain problems if you have a wild trigger finger.
    10 RCs and counting 😅

    Thanks! I'm going to do everything that I can as far as where and what I do with the truck! Bashing running it on pavement and dirt tracks that are around me! I can't say that I wont have a itchy throttle finger at times..LOL But that's where a more experienced person with more KNOWLEDGE then me right now comes in too play so to speak! I'd like too be somewhat prepared for breakage so I'm not running out to the LHS to buy parts that are known to break like the drive train! I played around back in the 80's for a while but the RC trucks then are nothing like they are now! Things that can be upgraded as soon as they break is what I want to do! Just a kind of guideline to what I should buy as far as the drive train because I differently want to upgrade the best that I can as soon as stuff starts to break this is going too be my new hobby and I want to put as much effort in to it as I have other things that I have ventured into!

    I would get a different set of batts, plenty of threads on batts.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Still I want that speed when I need it! 65/70 isn't that fast! It's that mashing the throttle right from start that screws stuff up and bashing of course!

    True but I said the same thing "I want that speed" but I have literally broken an axle driving in the grass trust me it's hard to tone it down when u have that much speed and power I wish I had just got the 2 cell

    That's nonsense. More power is always better.

    You got to remember you can turn the throttle down with Factory-Installed Telemetry Sensors and the The Traxxas TQi paired with the Traxxas Link app!
