    E-Revo squeaks when driving

    Iíve had my E revo 2.0 for 1 month now and Now my e revo squeaks when driving. There has to be load for it to squeak. Whenever I brake it makes the squeaking noise and whenever Iím driving relatively slow it squeaks as well. Iíve cleaned the bearings on the wheels and put 1 drop of 3-1 oil on the bearings. The sound sounds like itís coming from the rear drivetrain. Anyone have any idea on what this could be?

    Dry lube the arm pins in the bulk head. This is probably your culprit.

    What kind of dry lube do you recommend?

    Have you ever heard an xmaxx? They "squeak" like no tomorrow. After my first run or two I noticed it. I joke with all my xmaxx friends how it sounds the same but is twice as fast!

    The squeak is the driveshaft in the rear, this bothered me on my summit for a while. I used to just WD40 the shaft but it only lasted one run until it was back.
    SLAM!

    I use graphite, lhs should have it. Also local hardware stores will have it market as door lock lube. Cpl spray works as well. Could use wd40 but not ideal.
