    Cool Today is a good day!

    Got some more goodies in. Waiting on another chassis before I put it all back together. I'm super happy with the new Hot Racing piggyback shocks, and bulkheads. They look very well put together, and tough! Can't wait to get it all back together now.

    For the front and rear diffs I went with...
    - Hot Racing aluminum HD outer diff case with oversized bearings
    - Hot Racing aluminum diff cup
    - Hot Racing steel helical spiral gears
    - Boca green seal bearings
    - Traxxas 50k diff lube

    Also added the Robinson Racing bottom output gear in the transmission so my transmission is all metal gears now. I can also verify that the Robinson Racing Gen3 slipper (50T) for the Savage XL works on the E-Revo for anyone looking to go with Mod 1 gearing as I am. You will need to order the cross pin that holds / spins the slipper hub for the Savage XL though because the one on the E-Revo is too short imo.

    You didn't have to get a custom motor mount to use mod 1 gearing? Just that Robinson racing setup?

    I'm not sure, but I'm guessing not since it is sensored.

    No you don't need a custom motor mount. That RR slipper is the biggest mod 1 spur gear I know of that will work on the E-Revo.

    Mother of god. I swear the springs that came with those shocks are like 40 lbs. I about broke my fingers trying to get them off to replace with the Traxxas springs lol. I'm done for tonight messing with it though. I'll get the shocks filled with oil tomorrow, and I'll also have my new chassis tomorrow. Got everything ready to dye that black right away.

    LOL! Heavy duty springs, huh? Maybe they figure with all that aluminum your truck needs stronger springs? :P They look sweet though. Now I'm going to have to add a set of those to my wish list. LOL!

    While I do admit I've spent 2500-3k at a time on rc's but that was split between 2 or 3 different ones not all on same model!

    No intervention needed. He's not addicted, he's dedicated.

    I think he is trading this fully built erbe for a 8s X-Maxx on facebook. I seen the guy he is trading with post up pics saying he is getting this erbe for his X-Maxx. I always see Fueler941 on facebook all the time. Facebook seems to be way more active than these forums these days...

    He traded a Losi rc for a Snap On edition 8s X-maxx. A forum member (hmmm wonder who that could be and how would I know this??? lol), bought his ERBE from him.
