There is NEVER such thing as too much grease, unless it's on your fingers.

We're in the same boat. I'm also in the process of converting mine to BL. I'll be using :

1) Medusa 36-70-1600KV motor
2) Castle Creations MMM
3) 2 X 3S 4900mah Rhino Lipo (in series for 6S)
4) 21 pinion (RCM) with 65 spur (Traxxas)

Other mods or upgrades will include :

1) LPR crime fighters all round with 17mm hex adaptors
2) Sway bar kit from Tekno
3) Single servo (ACE 1015) with proline servo thingy & Traxxas servo saver spring
4) Harder shock springs all round (using the LT springs at the moment)
5) Cover for single motor

The E-REVO is pretty heavy. Chassis without batteries or wheels or body weighs around 3100g. Wheels & tires are about 200g each. Battery is around 400g each. At this rate, a fully loaded truck will weigh in excess of 4.7kg +-100g

Other maybe / want to haves may include :

1) center diff
2) hybrid diff using buggy diff from RCM
3) titanium rods all round (prohibitive $)

So I guess what I want to know is :

1) What is the shock oils weight f/r
2) What shock springs f/r
3) What diff fluid f/r
