    What is your "Before" and your "After" procedure to keep the E-Revo in top shape

    Hey guys. Tried to find something similar but couldn't.

    After I did a good run with me Revo I'm not entirely sure what should my routine be. I only have the Revo for a week and I'm trying to take good habits of "before" and "after" things to check.

    For instance, after my run I make sure there is nothing cracked and that the driveline is OK. I clean everything with air as much as I can, put my batteries on "storage mode" and call it a day. Should I pay more attention to something in particular?

    Prior to every run, I make sure my ESC respond correctly and same for the control, I make sure the fan is turning and then I go.

    Am I missing something ? Mind to share what you guys do before and after maybe I can pick a few things up from you guys.

    Thanks.

    I am doing pretty much the same things you are doing. Do a visual of everything. Check the wheel nuts are nice and tight and I make sure my batteries are balanced before I go out also.

    Every couple of runs or so make sure the hubs are still snug. I'll check the mesh on the spur and pinion every so often as well.
    Happy Motoring!

    Before I ran mine, I do a step check up

    1. All wheel nuts are tight; blanced etc
    2. Slipper Cltch has not loosened
    3. Underneat skids have all the screws in place.
    4. ll pushrod and rocker screws
    5. Wirings, all in good shape
    6. Motor amd esc do not move
    7. No crack on the bulks and chassis and all my drive shafts are all in good shape.
    8. Transmitter batteries still charged.
    Live life to the fullest

    I guess after you do this for awhile a lot of the list becomes subconscious routine if you prefer top performance.

    1. All wheel nuts are tight
    2. Find more body clips
    3. Transmitter batteries still charged
    4. Hip pack tool kit

    For me running in wet conditions pull wheel bearings and recoil after every wet run. Also clean transmission. And diffs if you are up to that much water. Blow out tires and reglue

    Make sure to check the yoke pins on the driveshafts. Mine were super loose after a couple outings.
