Default My Brushless Revo

Hi, I put this brushless Revo together last year and have been posting on other sites, I thought I would share some info here. I started out with a Revo roller and removed the gas tank and radio/servo boxes. I made some custom battery holders, mounting hardware for the servos, custom carbon fiber plate for the ESC and custom brake linkage. I installed the single servo mod and steering travel mod. I wanted to retain the Revo tranny and disc brake, so I used a custom motor mount that utilized the stock nitro mount. I had a Novak HV 6.5 system in my E-maxx and I transplanted that to the Revo, I later upgraded the motor to a Novak 4.5 HV. Recent updates are, Tekno extended a-arms, RPM carriers, alloy push/tie rods, alloy shock parts, stiffer springs and heavier oil. Spektrum telemetry system, close ratio gear set, FOC, Center diff and rear brake. I have custom diffs that utilize 1/8 buggy diffs. The "Evo" handles like a dream, jumps well and is very fast (out accelerates my nitro truggy).

With a Crowd Pleazer 2.0 body, I am currently running it with a stock Revo truck body.

NIce setup. What batteries are you using? I wanted to do the same thing but ended up doing an XB8 instead. Nice wheels washers too

Right now I am using 3800/4200 Ni-Mh since I have a big pile of them. Performance is great, the truck handles, jumps well, it is very quick and can out accellerate my nitro truggy. I am still experimenting with gearing ( I have 43/10T and 43/13T diffs, 36, 38 & 40T spurs, 12, 13, 14, 15T pinions). When my Ni-Mh's wear out I will be moving to Lipo. The Revo weights around 10lbs depending on the batteries, which is very close to what my truggy weighs.

ya ya, nice truck. What wheel nuts are you using? And are you still running the stock outer stub axles?
Thanx

air8, I am using some 23mm adapters I got on the internet. They use the stock axles, which I know are a weak point. I plan on updating to 8mm axles when I get all my drive train parts together. I am still waiting on CVD's, and some reinforced transmission parts. I already have the 1/8 diffs.
