    Hmm that is a good idea, might would be costly for me though since I don't paint. I send my bodies off to be painted.

    Only thing stopping me is I'll have 4 empty body holes in the body. I'm either gonna steal that body or either put a K5 blazer body painted in my colors.

    Here's some pics of the hardened spider gears that shattered. My output shaft gears were damaged as well, but not as bad as these spider gears.

    Finally got the summit back going, made sure I ordered some spares so that this doesn't happen again. Also got bored and made the wide axial wheels that I just took off into dually wheels. I'm very aware of the added stress this will cause, but I will not be doing any high speed bashing when I run these tires. More or less just for show and slow speed riding showing off.

    Took the outside rings off of the rockstars and gave them a shine. Pics aren't the best, but in the daylight outside it looks really good.

    So in installing a bunch of upgrades on one of my friends brand new summit. He went with rok lok tires and man those tires are nice, their also almost a inch taller than my slingers. I think I may have to pick me up a set soon.

    Are those LEM spider gears? If so were you running with their diff cup and spider gears?

    Yes they were Lem gears, and they were in Lem cups as well. Cup wasn't damaged, and it was my fault that it happened.

    How you end up doing that? I just ordered a LEM cup and gears for my erevo, since you been using them are the worth the money?

    I was showing a friend how the tekin motor performed at his business. I flipped over on the asphalt and when I flipped myself over I gave it too much throttle before the tire hit the ground and as soon as the slinger touched the asphalt it was game over for that rear diff lol. Didn't damage cup and I haven't had any problems with with my other Lem parts. What voltage will you be running? Should be fine on 4s, I don't know about 6s since that seems to be when the revo starts having diff problems is on 6s.

    Ya I'm running 6s, already messed up the stock spider gears bad. I was hoping the LEM spiders and diff cup would help.

    I think the stock diff getting messed up was my fault. I was hitting some big jumps and was hitting the throttle too fast

    From what I've read before if you want to run 6s reliably on a revo then the LST diff mod is the way to go.

    Ya that's what I heard too but there's a nice amount of modifications I'd need to do. I was trying not to do the LST diff mod but will probably end up doing it anyways. Thanks for all the info.

    you could also scout ebay for "erevo RC_Monster hybrid diffs". They are no lnoger made but they are durable and held up well to extra power.

    Figures. You can't make any money if you build a quality product.

    Haven't been playing with mine much lately, waiting till when the weather gets warmer and stays that way. Been focusing on my rustler lately.
