    That looks awsome man. Trust me I know what you mean by having trouble keeping the front down. I have 300k in my centre diff and still the thing would reach for the clouds at half throttle. And if you think your beast is powerful now wait till you get a side pipe and get about 5-6 litres on it. These engines are super tight when new and it really takes some time for them to give their best. Heat gun is your best friend with these engines when they are new. There is only one problem with your revo. It's way to clean for my liking. Throw some mud on it lol.....
    By the way try to do the diff mods I told you about soon. At least to the rear diff if you can. The diff cup will start to get chewed up with all that torque and if the diff cup breaks it could take out your crown and pinion as well the diff internals. You'll be up for almost $100 instead of $50 now. Trust me I did it my self.
    Feel sorry for your rear wing man as it's going to be getting a work out. My brother wrote on the roof of my Revo "This way up". Spends just as much time on the roof as the wheels.
    Soon I will post up a big pin mod for the transmission so keep an eye open for it.
    Anyway I am hanging to see a vid man of your beast man.

    Slayer bigblock question

    Hey lads! I've been looking for a while in different forums for tips and information on big block conversions in the Slayer, and found this thread relating to the revo: Sweet!

    So, I have a Slayer, just sold the 3.3 last night, seriously considering installing an Axial 28RR Spec 1 (its on my desk) and had no idea where to start...it seems there are three or four makes and styles of engine mounts available, I would like to be able to keep the pull-start on the motor if possible.

    The other thing I was curious about was internal differential mods, I've purchased RD racing's diff cups and cases, are these worth it? Lastly for now are there any dogbones or cvd's that would fit the narrower Slayer?

    Thank you for your help!

    All the stuff mentioned above will work the same way on the slayer. You wont be able to run the pull start unless you get the New Era engine mount. Corney01 might have a spare one of these so PM him. As far as the diffs go the best solutions is to use the diff cup and gears from the E-Revo/E-Maxx. These are very good. The outer diff housing would be beneficial if it was made of aloy as it would stop the crown and pinion from moving out of alignment due to torque. As far as the metal CVDs go there is only one manufacturer that I am aware of. The company is called FLM but you will have to buy them from the states. Check out the traxxas forum for the info on that one. Anything else just ask mate.

    NICE. Looks good and sounds good too. I think that there is lot more in it left but its going to take a few litres before it starts to really loosen up and starts making the power levels that it should.
    Are you using a centre diff? I found that the CD was one of the best handling improvements I have ever made to mine. I like your no holding back on the jumps driving style. Where abouts is that track you're on?
    It looks like you have an awsome truck there Corney.

    Thx BB , the track is up near Newcastle. I am running the CD , power is still down but getting there. I am putting the side exhaust on it today should make a big differance.
    That was my first attempt on an offroad track , those jumps are an art to be mastered.

    I really do like that track. Surface seems smooth. Big block Revos need a bit of a different jumping technique. With a bigger engine they are little more back heavy plus there is so much torque that you have to back of the throttle as you leave the jump or it will end up landing on the wing. You would probably have to jab the brakes in mid flight to bring the front end down as well. For me jumps are little easier than the turns. I always go in too hot and end up on the lid. My brother wrote on the trany skid plate "OTHER SIDE UP".
    Which side pipe are you going with? What fluids are you running in your diffs? Don't worry too much about the power levels yet. Your engine is going to be still way to tight to give real good performance. Be patient. When that monster of yours wakes up you wont know what to do with all the power. I also see that you also ordered the mini revo. Apparently they are capable of running on 4S. I will wait a little while before I order the batteries and see how other people go with it.

    Yeh i know with the jumping you'll notice i started of jumping ok then got excited with to much throttle, more practise required.
    Ive put a Max power pipe on it makes a big difference , my center diff is running 200K rest on the car is setup to Steve Slaydens specs.
    Cant wait for the tiny buggers to arrive should be good fun Im trying to negotiate with amain for a price on 3 so the kids can play also

    Wow that is a tough looking Revo. Even more so with a side pipe. The only thing thats got me buggered is the toe in on the left rear wheel looks excessive. Might be just the pics. Also I use 300k oil in the CD. Tried 500k but the turn in to the corners was not as sharp. 300k Seems spot on for me. Also what type of clutch are you using? Which clutch bell and spur gear size? Sorry for the questions but I always like to know what others are using.
    Yeah I cant wait for the mini revo. The only thing that is pi55ing me off is that it might not be able to run in 4s mode. Looks like a 3s is going to be the limit of the esc with the lipo batts. Seems the high voltage cut off might be a problem. I might be able to switch it of and use an external voltage cut off. Might work but then again I might smoke the esc or the motor or even both. Oh well lets wait and see. For now it looks like if you want to chase speed with it you will have to go with the NiMh batteries in serial mode. Also I have plans of extending the battery compartments and possibly going with dual motors and dual esc's. I will have to get measurements and go from there. I have access to a cnc machine so motor mounting plate wont be a problem if there is room.
    Anyway sorry for the questions and bllabing on. Revo looks great.

    Oh how I wish I knew it all. I wouldn't have lost half my house to a woman if I knew it all.
    The only thing that I could suggest is that you can try boiling it. Some times the heat from the hot water can turn the plastic back to its original shape and once cooled it should keep that shape. It does not work with all types of plastic but it shouldn't cause any further damage to it neither. Also boiling your wheels will break down the glue thats holding the tyres on. No big deal as you can just re-glue them. Any way I wish you luck with them.

    You wont be paying me for nothing mate. Knowledge should be free on this forum. If anyone asks you for money just for knowledge then name and shame them. I don't think that most around here would take kindly to someone taking advantage of people like that. Anyway I have sent you a PM with everything I could remember. Been a while since I have owned that particular Revo.
