Just like our recently released Traxxas T/E-Maxx version, the new RPM True-Track Rear A-arm Conversion Kit for the Revo eliminates some of the biggest headaches associated with toe link style rear ends. Rear toe in angles are nearly impossible to set accurately nor is there a gauge currently made that can accurately identify whether each individual wheel’s toe angle is set correctly in relation to the chassis. The True-Track rear end kit completely eliminates the rear toe links, locking in the rear toe-in angle at a solid 1.5 degrees per side for a total rear toe-in angle of 3 degrees. By getting rid of the rear toe links, we’ve completely eliminated all rear bump steer! That means the rear toe angle remains consistent throughout the entire range of suspension travel, providing superior rear end tracking regardless of the terrain. Identical to our T/E-Maxx design, the Revo True-Track Kit retains the stock upper pivot ball in the new RPM axle carrier to allow precise camber adjustments while the lower pivot ball has been eliminated in favor of a rock-solid 4mm diameter hinge pin that locks in the rear toe angles for race winning consistency. This is the same hinge pin set used in the T/E-Maxx version (replacement part #80970). All aspects of the RPM Rear End Conversion have been beefed up for rugged durability and slop free movement throughout its range of travel. Additionally, we’ve incorporated our oversized bearings into the new RPM axle carrier design, providing an additional 2mm more bearing contact with the axle while doubling the bearing load rating & tripling the fatigue rating over the stock bearings. These axle carriers are also the same as those found in the T/E-Maxx True-Track Kit.
So does all this come at a cost of added weight? Once again, no! The RPM Revo True-Track Rear A-arm Conversion Kit actually weighs LESS than the stock components it replaces! How much less? 16 grams PER SIDE! That’s a total weight loss of 32 grams or 1-1/8 ounces! That means you get perfect rear toe angles, added A-arm strength, bearings that are more durable & longer lasting, an unbeatable breakage warranty and the truck gets lighter! What more can anyone ask for?
What’s Included: Our Revo True-Track Rear End Kit consists of two upper rear A-arms, two lower rear A-arms, two beefy rear axle carriers, two outer 6x15mm sealed bearings, two inner 12x21mm sealed bearings, two aluminum pivot ball setscrews, two delrin pivot ball bushing cups, two M3x16mm shock mount screws, two 4mm diameter tool steel hinge pins & enough e-clips to get the job done (4 minimum).
Tech Notes: These rear end kits work on all versions of the Traxxas Revo. One kit will complete the entire rear end of any Revo. These kits will not work in conjunction with Traxxas (#5356) 120-LT Long Travel Rockers.
