hi guys, got my revo a couple of weeks ago, twas a 9x2 modified (shocks got the wrong motor) i ran it in my losi xxx-s and used 90/21 gearing. it felt alrigh but lacked top speed, only to find out that the other guys i was running against were gearing it at around 7 to 8 as final drive ratio.
well overall, in 5 runs, i got good results and was very happy with the motor considering that it was undergeared.
a problem i encountered was the fact that i failed to break in the brushes and went to the track and ran it straight from the box, you think i should cut the comm and put new brushes then break in the motor?
o, another thing, a buddy of mine ran it for 25 packs in his xray before he cut the comm, the brushes still looked good, althouhg we had to skimm the comm 5 times before we got it trued. seems like a good result for me.
anyone running it in a losi xxx-s? can u please post the final drive ration u use on a large asphalt track and a small to medium asphalt track. tanx
