    E-Revo 2.0 Maintenance

    Hey all,

    I recently just picked up a E-Revo 2.0 and I've been loving the absolute out of it! If anyone could tell me some tricks of the trade on maintaining the 2.0, especially the drive cups as mine already have grooves in the rear after 2 weeks of moderate use

    From previous discussions it seems a few people here put grease in the drive cups. This reduces the wear apparently.

    In fact, there's a thread not far below this one about that particular issue:

    Yep, I just ordered a full set of new cups and those boots to try on mine this season. I'm on my second set of cups in a year after flipping the first set.

    Will see how they do with some red-n-tacky grease. I also intend on changing my tires to some lighter ones which should help with wear as well. Going from trencher 3.8's to backflip MT's. Couple oz lighter per corner.

    Things I check before every run are the axle bearings, wiggle the tires back and forth to see how worn/sloppy they are and I tighten all the diff output cup screws. Shock ends, pushrod ends are also things I keep an eye on. I recently modified a set of RPM truetrack carriers to run those on the rear to do away with the turnbuckles that I kept breaking last year. Will see how that does this year. They worked well in my v1 and nitro revo's, so I'm assuming they will do well on the 2.0 as well. Would be nice if RPM would make a set for the 2.0, but they don't.

    I like the greasing idea, ill probably do that when I swap my cups from left to right. Any place to get the drive cup boots?

    I got them from Ebay seller gulftechnologic.

    I talk about them in this thread: forums.traxxas.Dust-boots

    Here you can see I went the extra mile and used heatshrink on the cups to help with sealing.

    Yep. I read the thread and I would say that, while there are some intersting comments, the vast majority fail to add something valuable to the conversation.
