    1/16 ERevo VXL bulkhead differences

    I recently picked up another mini ERevo in astonishing condition, but when I was going to shim the diffs I noticed the rear bulkhead wasnít held together by a long screw like on my other car. Is this an older or newer style bulkhead?

    The diffs that have the place for the long screw to hold the two halves together are the newer style.

    ^I agree with grizzly03.
    Your MERV sounds like an older model (at least the bulkhead is) and should be shimmed.

    Have fun with your new-to-you rig!

    Alrighty, thanks guys! And yes, Iíve shimmed the diffs and the previous owner threw in a few center differentials with the spare parts so Iím going to put that in too.

    Nice looking rig!

    Please note that only your front passenger tire/wheel is in the correct direction.

    Looks like you have ProLine Titus beadlock wheels on your rig. If so, you have to take one of the tires off the drivers side of your rig and turn it 180˚ and then swap the other one with the rear passenger tire/wheel to make the tires' treads go the way they are intended to run.

    Have fun!

    I never noticed that tires being incorrect. Thanks for pointing that out!

    You might also adjust your pillow-balls to pull the knuckles closer to the a-arms, they look fairly screwed out. Might just be the picture though *shrugs*.

    Iíll take a look at that, though it could be the tire setup I had on there. Theyíre pretty thin so it showed off the knuckles. Iím running stock wheels and tires on it now because the Proline beadlocks were too heavy and were slowing the car down.
