    E Revo 2.0

    Hey hows it going guys. I'm kinda new to the rc community, I got my first rc (rustler xl5) about 6 months ago. Hook, line and sinker I'm a huge fan of the hobby now and a proud owner of several traxxas vehicles. I have owned my E Revo 2.0 for about 5 months now and I decided to take it apart down to bare chassis and fully upgrade everything. I reside in eastern Long Island New York and the rc community around here is almost extinct. With that being said I would like to share this build with other enthusiast to get feedback and advice with this build. I would like to post pictures but I need someone to explain the process because I don't seem to understand how to do so. I'm definitely not a dummy but computers are not my area of expertise. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I'd never run alloy arms... not for bashing at least, but those sure look nice! Got a link to those rear arms? Kind of looks like the RPM true track that doesn't exist for 2.0's.

    I think they are Hot Racing erevo V1 arms.

    The arms are from the E Revo Brushless Hot Racing kit. They do not make any for the 2.0 so I am now fitiing the 2.0 axle carriers (hot racing) on the front and the rear hub carriers are actually from the Maxx, all hot racing. I have not posted any pics with those installed yet I'm still working on it and waiting on parts. This is definetly not for bashing, too heavy. I wanted to build a show piece for a change (not a shelf queen, it will get some drive time)

    It does look too good to beat up! I would be afraid to put a scratch on it. Looking sharp!

    No worries Olds, I honestly think with the motor and wheels on its gonna over 20 lbs. but I'll weigh it and let you guys know. I was shocked when I picked it up, easily doubled, maybe tripled in weight. Thanks for compliments guys, I appreciate it

    I put the new Max8 ESC w/ 2200kv combo on last night and it really ruined the build IMO. I don't like the way it looks I tried wrapping the wires and failed miserably. I also wanted to use the EC5 connectors (because they're blue) but the 10 gauge wire is to big IMO. It will fit but that connector is small. I have the XT150 on now but they are black and red. So I am either going to buy an XERUN XR8 and wire all black leads on it (eliminate the red) but I just bought this max8 combo. IDK. I'll post pics today and you guys let me know what you think.

    Yes there is only one kit available from Hot Racing with aluminium arms for the E Revo 2.0 and it is intended for the E Revo Brushless (version one) edition. The ERBE comes with 6mm out drives and the E Revo 2.0 comes with 8mm. Therefor the hub bearing is also set for a 6mm axle. There are no driveshafts available with an 8mm coupler with a 6mm axle to fit in the hub. The biggest difference between the ERBE and the 2.0 is the driveline. I feel putting 6mm driveshaft set up would be downgrading the 2.0 and basically making it a ERBE. The Maxx hub with some fabricating fits in the pivot of the arm and uses an 8mm axle. I actually did away with the Maxx hubs anyway and FINALLY found a guy to make bearings that will fit in the hub assembly that came with the kit. The only bearing that will fit in a ERBE hub with an 8mm OD axle is 17x25x5 which was discontinued years ago and are impossible to find. So with the custom made bearings I can use the hubs intended for the kit, Hopefully. If the bearings do not work then I am going back to the original plan using the Maxx hubs. Fingers crossed!
