sounds like a cool truck. Kind of a bummer that some of the stuff came pre built though. shocks and diffs are my favorite part to build!


Built Ford tough, with Chevy stuff.

I'm not worried about glitching, it may seem kinda petty but I think the ESC and RX box need the positions swapped but thats just my worthless opinion.
I also had a XXX4 always got dirt/sand in the belt drive compartment from the clay track, did it cause failures, No. But made me worry and was a PITA to clean when needed.

@ E-Revo,
I'm happy to see the parts are looking very beefy !
Sad to see a partilaly built "kit" they rob you of all the fun

So the diffs are viscus and geared, thats excellent news. I thought they'd be ball diffs. The vicus diffs are tougher and easier to tune IMO.

FYI, with running that servo a BEC may be needed if the RX cuts out, the MMP's are noted to have probs feeding high torq servo's.

Excellent pics and look forward to hearing a track report !

I'm aware of the weak bec, I put a Savox 1258 in my 2wd sc10 and te bec couldn't even power it up. I've only done a quick pass so far but the bec seems to have no problem. Not like there's much of a load on the servo

Got to run the truck for awhile now, about 10 minutes of hard running on blacktop. I'm running a set if stock slash wheels so I don't destroy my new tires or race tires. I used the speed calculator and my gearing puts me about 35 mph, but the truck seemed like it was doing closer to 40. I need to play with the slipper and the front clicker to get it the way I want it but it wasn't a bad start, slipper is a little loose and the front clicker is a little tight. The truck handled great and was very stable. I like the slight over drive on the front as it allows it to pull out of a turn better. The truck wouldn't flip! I thought with a little higher cg it might flip on blacktop but nope, it spun out but wouldn't flip. The motor was 109* at the hottest point I could find, esc was 89*, and I didn't bother with the lipo cause it wasn't even warm. The bec didn't have any issues keeping it all powered up.

Overall I'm very happy with the truck, can't wait to see it on the track now. I can almost see myself selling my MT and getting another one to bash with.

wow, I love the look of AE kits! Hopefully they will make a 4wd buggy or truggy version of it and I would consider buying one.

Ya that would be nice for aesthetics (sp?) and im not sure why they did it this way, but I dont see it ever causing a problem.

since the axles are 6mm i figure the old maxx or revo adapters will fit with little to no mods.

Guess that could work, if you get to it take a picture of how far away from the bearing the hole for the drive pin is. Maybe the 17mm Tekno hexes for the Slash 4x4 M6 shafts fit, if the stock TRX hexes need too much grinding.
But I would be surprised if there won't be AKA adapters coming out in the near future, so we get a bolt on solution that has the propper offset as well.

the teckno m6 17mm definetly dont fit, i run those on my slash 4x4. if nothing else i have some old new-era 17mm adapters that i can drill to fit. they are the correct offset also. those would forsure fit.
