1/16th E-Revo

Although not considered a traditional monster truck, they still have monster coolness.

I loose clips and it's hard to control in the air-- staying on a steady throttle helps a little but it's just inconsistent. I think the power is too much and it gets out of wack with the slightest movement.

I am finding this is a trend for sure Mike. It is hard to control in the air and those dang clips just will not stay on. I think I am going to drill new holes that go the width way and use the long clips that go through both posts.

update, I bought a parallel plug for it so I can run dual batteries and picked up some used Proline paddle tires mounted on some HPI star wheels. I need to fix one of them because the hex mount on one needs to have a 12mm hex glued in. No biggie, but the price was right even in this condition.

That should rip pretty good if the drive shafts can handle those tires.

They have not shredded yet with the other tires and those grab, well lets just say they hook up. :shock:

I think they will be fine... :wink:

I've thought about these for a while, how is it holding up, other than body clips :)

I can just see the snow roost off those paddles in about 2" of powder :biggrin:

I have not broken anything yet. They are solid trucks and a blast to drive. Body clips are an issue for me as this thing likes to land on its roof.

I got a feeling though these tires are going to dig well in the snow compared to the Zombies! Now if we could get some of the white stuff.

Budhatrain has a couple for sale still, I think. :wink:

Took the mini out today and well it was fun for the first two minutes, then I lost the rear wheel. It went rolling past the truck. Funny thing is I found the wheel nut in the snow. Took a couple of minutes to fix it an find another washer. Ran it for another 5 five minutes or so and lost a front wheel! UGH! I need to find different lock nuts for this truck. With the washers added to the wheels it just does not have enough bite to hold on.

The roosts from these tires were pretty impressive though when it had all 4's on! :) :lol:

Thead-lock the night before and let cure overnight?

Looks like you need to get some traxxas 2.2's for those tires.
