    Earthquake 3.5 Upgrades

    I'm planning on buying the Earthquake 3.5 pretty soon but have not found a listing of upgrades on the their website. After watching my neighboor bash around his Backdraft 8E and seeing the weak points in the control arms and body mounts I'm wanting to upgrade to aluminum parts pretty quickly. Does anyone know of any available? Are any third party companies making parts yet?

    Redcat does have some upgrades but are very hard to find right now on the redcat site. The ones they have for the earthquake I have listed on my site and will have them instock in a few days you can check them out at http://www.urchobby.com/products.php...0%2C+3.5+Parts I'm sure redcat will have more upgrades for the earthquake soon, It is a fairly new truck.

    RE: Earthquake 3.5 Upgrades

    Thanks, I like the look of the Stainless Steel parts and Ididn't even know that the wheels were the 12mm and not the 17mm.

    If any of the RedCat guys read this, are there aluminum parts coming soon?

    RE: Earthquake 3.5 Upgrades

    We have hopups available now that are in stock.

    You can search them a few ways until the new search is live on the site in a few weeks.

    If you have the manual it is very easy. Just go to redcatracing.com and in the top right search box type in the part number.

    If you dont have the manual you can see it here: http://content.yudu.com/Library/A1chiq/Earthquake35/

    Here is also a direct link to most of them: http://www.redcatracing.com/RC-Cars?search=mpo

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    RE: Earthquake 3.5 Upgrades

    im still running the factory stearing servo on my EQ 3.5 but have replaced the throttle servo with a futaba s3003 dont know how well that servo will be for stearing but for throttle its good also you can go under my profile and see a little list of what i have done to my EQ . I like to think outside of the box and see what works or try to mod it to make it work like the spoiler mount i put on it.

    RE: Earthquake 3.5 Upgrades

    like i said i had to do some modding to the wing mount ie dremel work cut a little here cut a little there on the wing mount and not the shock tower thought i would put that in there but other then that i bolted it to the shock tower . I used the ofna jammin wing mount and ofna high down force wing if that helps you out any.
