    Strongest after market parts for brushless emaxx and erevo

    I have a brushless erevo and brushless emaxx.

    Now I break lots of things, it is the way I am

    Both run 3s lipos 11.1V 4000 Mah in series.

    The emaxx is fully kitted out with integy stuff, but it has broken bits already.

    What is the STRONGEST for overall bashing? parts and tyres too

    RPM, integy, golden horizons etc?

    I need some help as I am about to order parts for the now broken emaxx and am thinking should get bits for the erevo too.

    I use liquidrc.com, towerhobbies.com, rchobbies.com.au - any other sites?

    Do I need a low voltage thing for the lipo batts on either car, or is this automatic from the factory?

    hey, the general rule is, and sorry to say this, stay away from integy.

    This is for the e-maxx

    for bulks either get rc monster or trx ones

    diff cases - golden horizons 4 screw alu cases

    a-arms - RPM

    chassis - gorillamaxx or FLM extended both alu

    shock tower - FLm fully adjustable

    shocks - 1/8 buggy fronts or trx big bore

    Centre CVD's - TRX ones

    drive shafts - stock trx ones

    shock oil - 50~80w

    Springs - integy 40 pce set (ok but overtime loose strength)


    Hope this Helps - for more info have a look for carni's e-maxx build or LD's and if you want to see the G4 chassis look for my e-maxx/g-maxx thread

    I used to use RPM on my Rustler and never broke anything RPM. Integy stuff I've never really liked though, my mate used it in his Rustler and I way rather the RPM stuff.

    I second that B-Money. Some of the large scale guys swear by Integy but in the 1/8th and 1/10th I would label it all junk or "Bling" for a shelf queen.


    My Revo runs RPM True Track rear suspension arms, front RPM arms, front RD Logics axle carriers (ones with over sized bearings), Traxxas centre CVDs, Proline truggy wing and soon to update all of my suspension links, pushrods, rocker posts and hinge pins with Lunsford titanium units.
    I doubt you will have to do much more than that. Things will still break but at this point you will have to be doing pretty stupid things to break major parts.

    RPM have a great warranty.. Break it under normal use and they'll replace it FOC.

    Don't get THS Racing steel CVD's. They're crap and keep snapping pins.

    Steel tranny gears (robinson racing)
    Steel CVD's.. (Traxxas branded ones)
    RPM arms (trutrack or not is up to you)
    Splined hex's but cut the last couple of threads off of them to allow a nut on the end. I have done this, and a mate hasn't.. Mine are still in VGC while his are completely stuffed. Then shim up behind the hex to take out any slop. (As much as you can fit in there)

    Use E-Revo diff's which have the extra I bar inside the carrier. It stops flex in the carrier and stripping of crown.

    Other than those suggestions, I can only say, STOP ABUSING YOUR TRUCK!! lol

    Excellent info, thanks everyone

    I think RPM is the way to go for all the stuff on the truck

    Now where is the best place to get the RPm stuff from?

    RPM all the way with the arms.

    Alloy shock ends as the originals like to strip out, and alloy shock mounts.

    Of all the bashing I've done, I've never broken a shock end or mount.

    I have snapped a rocker once though. Plenty of tie rod ends too...

    I have. I stripped a few shock ends clean off the shock shaft but it really doesn't happen to me that often to bother me too much. I always carry spares and it takes me about a minute to change one.
    In regards to the Shock mounts I have never had an issue there but I might have just jinxed my self.

    my revo uses rd alloy arms they've taken many hard hits with no problem but i would recommend rpm all the way

    proline thick shell helps the shock towers from taking to much stress and stops them bending
