    E-Revo 2.0 and the Rpm true track rear a-arms

    So I have watched multiple videos about how the tie rods suck on the 2.0 and so many people in the comments and forums say the rpm true track rear set work with the 2.0 but if you go to the rpm site it says it wonít work with the 2.0 and they donít have another set listed.

    Is there something Iím missing here? Did someone find a away to convert that specific set to work with the 2.0?

    Is there a set from another brand/company someone can recommend? I keep having these tie rods break on me.

    If you look on the Facebook pages Traxxas Erevo and erevo 2.0 people have had success mounting it to a 2.0.

    Sent an email to RPM asking for a 2.0 version, got this answer

    "The True-Track system is a great set-up for the Revo. Sadly, not enough of you are out there that understand its benefits so they've never sold all that well. Because of that, it is unlikely at this time that we will offer a True-Track system for the Revo 2.0. I apologize for the bad news."

    I contacted RPM & they sent this back to me. I have heard though that some people have been able to modify things & get these true track rear arms to work. If anyone has a link to someone who's successfully done that, I would greatly appreciate it.

    "Unfortunately our True Track system does not work on the Revo 2.0 nor we do not have plans for one at this time. While our True-Track system was an awesome upgrade for the Revo, not enough people recognized it's usefulness to sell well. Because of that, it is unlikely we will offer a version for the new Revo unless Traxxas updates the E-Maxx to use the same axle carriers as the Revo 2.0. If that happens, it might be worth it for us to reconsider at that time since our axle carrier molds would work for more than just one vehicle."

    I asked them about skid plates for the 2.0 and was sent almost the exact response.

    That's a shame. I've had revos for the better part of 15 years, 10 of which with true track. All 3 of the ones I currently own have true track on them and I won't run a revo without it. I hate tierods on rear tires. They just snap regardless if it's a revo, savage, LST. There's no give and they break. Either they break or the axle carriers break. On the front, the servo saver gives. If you could fashion up some sort of shock absorption with the rear like a servo saver... then it would be passable, but more stuff to deal with.

    So what are these guys doing to ensure it fits?

    Sounds like you can, found a post on there, but it requires buying aftermarket cvd's, both sets for the 1.0 and 2.0, then mixing/matching the 2.0 inner part of the cvd with the 1.0 outer part.

    If you buy two sets of HR CV axles you can make it work using the 2.0 inner CV & tube with the V1 outer CV
    Quite a price to do that though... if it's 2 sets of these ($128):

    and 2 sets of these ($138):
    https://hot-racing.com/?partnumber=ERVT288RC;c=1294

    $50 for the true track

    Not sure I'd spend $316 just to change over to true track. lol!
