New vid !!

A long vid of 2 bashing sessions with pdcsq , another French Traxxas/RCM forum member (my ERBE has the blue body) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuDRsR2IgH0.


Breakages :

0:00 : New spot (Devil's spot...) - Popoxx E-Maxx and ERBE.
- Popoxx E-Maxx : Integy front lower arm, 2 Big Bore shocks, 2 bellcrank posts, steering bellcrank.
- pdcsq Flux : pinion looseness, MMM bug.

1:54 : Classic spot - pdcsq E-Maxx (darkmaxx) and Popoxx ERBE
- Popoxx ERBE : one shock rod end
- pdcsq E-Maxx : one servo

4:45 : New spot (BMX track) - pdcsq E-Maxx/Stampede/HPI Flux and Popoxx ERBE
- Popoxx ERBE : one rear axle carrier w/ bearings

Great video !

The Erevo was def the best jumper of the bunch, handles the landings and was more stable. Good Job.

New lipo packs ! - 07.31.2010, 08:42 AM

As the Turnigy 2S 20C 5000mAh packs aren't really powerful I wanted to test new packs. I've chosen the ProTek 2S 50C 5600mAh packs (link).






Perfect fit ! :






With my previous mod for the Turnigy packs I just needed to dremel the spot below not to damage the connectors :




My ERBE currently :








Quick review of the packs soon

Hmm, hope those work well for you, kinda pricey @ $100 for a 2s pack.

New vid !!

My first session in a skate park with my BL E-Revo ! : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toV-xtvfT6Y (I hope the quality will be soon better...).

Breakages :


FullForceRC carbon pushrods are junk... I broke two of them today, the carbon holds out but not the alu threaded part. So I keep the Traxxas optional pushrods ! One of my pivot ball pops out the axle carrier, I decided to reinstall the stock ones with alu rings (they weren't released when I had installed the RPM ones). You can notice the RPM bearings suffered a bit


^^ this was the reason of a clicking sound I had since several sessions. It's the yoke of my front center driveshaft.


The ERBE is really sturdy on concrete, skids suffer but no worries !
My ProTek packs are great, long runtime (30-40 minutes), nice temps, no balancing problem, and they seem reliable, we will see if they are durable

Can't wait my vacations next week

Pretty cool video, I like the ones where you bash in the woods better tho.

I think your ball popped out because you didn't install the metal rings from the stock carriers. See pic

Thanks Bondonutz ! Skate park is funny sometimes, my vids take place too often in the forest, people need change

In fact I used the RPM axle carriers, I installed those you linked I bought a long time ago. Sorry if my explanations weren't clear

Not sure if were on the same page ?

The metal rings from the stock carriers must be removed and installed on the RPM carriers or the balls will pop out.

Confusion confusion

These metal rings are not metal rings but plastic rings require to use the inner bearing of the previous Traxxas axle carriers which didn't have built-in metal rings around the pivot balls. And RPM carriers don't use the same bearings so these plastic rings are useless here. I hope all is clear now !

OMG, These have nothing to do with the bearings.

Look at the old carriers you removed, on the back where the threaded part of the pivot ball where it comes through the back there is a metal ring(very hard to see, same color as the black plastic) must be removed and installed on RPM carrier to prevent the balls from popping out.

My E-Revo and 2 Nitro Revos are a couple of years old now, and none of them have metal rings on the axle carriers.. Was there an update?

I read the instructions included with the updated 5334R Traxxas axle carriers and it's said these rings are bearing adapters required only if you use the inner bearings of the old 5334 Traxxas axle carriers which are smaller than the inner bearings of the 5334R model.

RPM use their own design for their axle carriers so I don't understand why you want I use the bearing adapters with these carriers

One of my pivot ball pops out my RPM axle carrier because it suffered a lot during the skate park session. It's not because I forgot to use something.


Yes freeagent there was an update, a bit old by the way . The axle carriers have been reinforced around the pivot ball holes with built-in alu rings. Links above.

Yes a update, same part number but w/a X on the end.
The difference is the steel ring.

""One of my pivot ball pops out my RPM axle carrier because it suffered a lot during the skate park session. It's not because I forgot to use something.""

Uh, yes you might have. The steel ring goes on the outside of the carrier to keep the material from expanding to keep the friggin' inside.
