This thread is very cool , thank you all for you pics and info.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to split this thread in two new threads,

one for the foam race cars with rear solid axle suchas mrx4, evolva, etc

and another for off-road based conversions with rubber tires such as the inferno GT etc...

It just seems to me these are quite different and have different public...

hope it makes sense !

keep posting pictures !

Definitely want to see the full spec (the latest) on your E-Mugen in the future, good job...

The OFF ROAD based brushless modified chassis is listed under electric off road thread on Rctech already. This is for true ON ROAD based brushless conversion.

Just a note - The Empire eM3 that Scott wheeled was a 1/10th second slower than his record breaking, TQ setting, grass clipping, Gas M3.

Yes, you ran longer - but, be honest, your car was no speed/handling match for our ballistic Empire eM3. Battery issues -okay, it was a puffed American Tourister. Next year - we'll have the whole works -speed and run time. The Mamba Stuff is bullet proof gang - the Castle Gang is doing great stuff. For Scott to be as quick with the electric speaks volumes on the throttle control of the Castle Gear.

By the way - TimeZone Rocks!!!!

I like that video of the conversion car, it really flies.

yeah yeah Rich we will see next year. like I said your car worked better than ours, and once we put in the good motor(for run time) we lost a tad bit of speed. but a 14.5 to your 14.3 is pretty darn close, can't wait to run the 2010 8th Scale Electric Championships at the TZGP next year....


good luck this weekend......................

Here is video of the latest EBP (East Bay Pete) eEvolva...please note before watching this that I forgot to reattach the rear sway bar before I gave the car to Jim...DOH! The run time was longer, but my 1GB memory card filled up!

+ YouTube Video

I'd love to be a part of the 2010 8th Scale Electric Championships next year...the only problem is I'll need a driver since I haven't even competed in a race yet! It's quite possible that by that time "Sneaky Pete's RC Parts" will have parts available that will allow more than just 3 cars to compete!

BTW, I will be doing further testing shortly that will, hopefully, ultimately allow a battery change mid-race in 10 seconds or less!

Hey MAD...what kind of runtime were you getting at the TZGP and what configuration are you going to get from Danny?

We got around 5 minutes, with a 40 C 4s 5500 mha pack, looks like we can get about 7500 to 8000mha with an optimized pack. Danny say's more mha possible if we went down to 28c cell's.

This is not the 1/8th buggy you showed pics of earlier right?

Correct, it is an Evolva. There are pics of the chassis earlier in this thread. (page 8 maybe?) Don

Default Latest pics

Hi guys, I'm back...

I just thought I'd post some of the latest pictures of the E'volva.
I've made some changes to accommodate the larger, Neu motors.
I will be testing for runtime and working on the setup this weekend so I will post my findings next week.

Sorry if the pictures are a bit small.
