    How did you get the true track rear a arms. I have them and the bearings will not fit in the stock drive shafts. I'm sorry for the newbie question. I've measured the inner and outer diameters of the stock bearings along with the bearings that came with the kit and they are off. The stock bearings won't fit into the axle carriers. Please help.

    Yes, I would also like to know what you did to make the RPM True Track work with the E-Revo 2.0

    Would you recommend Traxxas steel center shaft or the hot racing one?

    hi MiStro.. Just wondering if you could tell me what you mean regarding the spacer in the chassis? im about to do this upgrade and need to order the screws and stand off spacers too. Cheers

    Hello,

    Does anyone make a new list for "must to have upgrades" for Revo 2.0? For now I just replace the servos and add some limited travel straps front and rear and order some steel skid plates.
    I have no issues regarding center driveshafts or spur gear. RPM has now both front and rear arms, maybe I will get them.

    Thanks,
    Radu

    The only must-haves for me were the red 2255 servo, chassis brace, and a sway bar set. I also upgraded to the steel spur gear, as my plastic one was starting to show a little wear, and I didn't want to risk it blowing out on me at the skate park.

    It's a Gen1 sway bar kit, with longer screws, and some washers to keep the plastic part in the rear from bowing.

    chassis brace, blew a rear link when I dead stopped at a playground, added 80mm straps to the back today and the wireless module cuz default 100% braking is crazy

    I also got shock rebuild kits cuz I heard extra bump stops help and I want heavier oil and springs

    Can you setup the brake with wireless mode?
    When I try to limit the acceleration, by entering into the training mode, the brakes also changes. eg. If I set 30% acceleration as training mode it has only 30% brakes which is a lot less than I need. Have anyone this problem?

    I've installed 85mm rear straps and 85mm front straps, but need to put 80mm on the front.
    How about shocks aluminium rods? Does they worth?

    The app let's you adjust TSM, Steering/throttle sensitivity, throttle trim, and steering/braking percentage. The only thing I have done is dial down braking from 100 to 35 percent so far. There is no adjustment/setting for reverse in the app - https://traxxas.com/products/parts/a...inkapplication

    I should correct this. Reducing braking in the app does affect reverse power/speed which is perfect for me cuz I run all my cars in 70/30 throttle neutral. The braking was so aggressive out of the box even on 50/50 neutral that I was front flipping if I was braking at speed.

    This is how I limit the travel, on the rear is same as others, but on front is a little different.

    That is how I did my rear end after breaking a link/rod on the backend. I got an extra set of 80mm straps for the front but haven't mounted them yet as most seem to say you don't really need them up there.

    Are you talking about the rod ends or the actual ball in the rod eye? If you are talking about the actual rod end, hot racing makes Alloy ones, I bought them last year, yet to put them on. Or you can run the limiting straps.

    Having an alloy rod end might help you without reducing the travel. But is a cheap and safe mod to put limiting straps and also easy.
    I did also in the front for an extra safety measurement and also to have the same maximum ride height as rear.

    Travel limit straps are the way to go, if I beef up the shaft ends I'll just pull the shock caps off the body. In a real offroad racing buggy it will have travel limit to protect suspension from fast extension

    Yes had to shave a little off rear screw mount so body clip worked and added spacers and longer screws to the front 2 35mm or 40mm long screws as well

    So clean.

    Let us know if it all works well for you.
    Guessing 85mm straps?

    My 90mm stretched or something as now I'm pulling rod ends. I only have the aluminum brace.

    Yes, but to do a proper job you need longer screws plus 2x M3 x5mm plastic washers and 1 M4 2mm plastic washer.




    As for Good replacement parts to the E-revo 2.0 I have replaced my servos with 2 Power HD 6-7.4V LW-25MG .
    They are drop ins.
