Our picks for performance, durability, and/or appearance upgrades

Here are our accessory and hop-up picks for the Traxxas E-Revo that can boost performance, durability and/or appearance and leave you with a sweet custom ride.

Traxxas E-revo


TYPE: 1/10-scale RTR electric 4WD monster truck
PRICE: $509.97 (item no. 56036-1) http://amzn.to/2owZEEL

HOP-UP: Fast Eddy Bearings sealed bearing kit
PRICE: $31.99 (E-Revo EVX-2 Bearing Kit) http://amzn.to/2nKJvMR
Over time the drivetrain will not rotate as freely as it did when you first got your truck and the most likely culprits are the bearings. Replace all the bearings with new ones. Fast Eddy Bearings offers this quality sealed bearing kit which also helps defend against dirt to keep the bearings spinning smoothly for longer compared to non-sealed bearings.

This slipper unit from Robinson Racing (RRP) is constructed of hardened steel and designed to handle tons of power, perfect if you plan to upgrade the stock brushed motor system to a high power brushless system with LiPo batteries.
