    Thumbs down Trashed at the Track

    Drove my Revo on their local track and flipped it and somehow the dang u joint came to pieces. Pins went flying, the little metal "box" that holds them went missing. And I think I stripped the thing it was in. I think the "axle carrier"? Any way to make the Revo less heavy? It jumps and goes straight down even on 6s.

    Go slightly slower to the jump, then gas it on the jump.

    As for U-Joins, are they the plastic ones?

    It's part number 5452 I don't know if they are or not.

    I have Silver Springs on front with 30wt shock oil and Blue springs in back with 60wt. All pushrods set to outer hole to look more like a truggy.

    Ah, that's also part of the problem, You're front soaks up the ramp while the rear rebounds it. Try stiffer up front with a thicker oil. You're steering will be more responsive, and hopeful fix your nose diving
