Default Project: E-Revo (56k = death)

Well ive been doing this for a while and figured id share with u all
i doubt anyone cares why im doing it soo ill skip to the pics and info)

Its got a Feigao 9XL motor, mm esc, vantage cf chassis, custom cf platforms for esc and batteries, UBEC, RCM motor mount

this was it when it was in the begging stages of totally stripped down,




currently im going to be running 12 cells until i cand get enough funds for a lipo set up, and when i get enough money i will be running a Superbrain 989 and a true-rc 4s2p 8k Lipo, and a Hyperion balancer.

this is it recently (note, i have the motor, its just not in some of the pictures cuz i have to sodder it to the esc which is in the mail now, should be here soon this week....)

pics get more recent the more further down.

just dremeled out the platforms..



just got the motor + pinion + motor mount




just got my wing! aka wheelie bar lol





ca glued a little piece of cf to keep the battery from sliding back



got the velcro trap to hold the batteries in. as of oct. 21 (- the motor, like i said)





all i need is the esc (in the mail)
little sodering and should be rtr

all i need for it to be 100% done is the lipo setup
which i cant afford for a while lol

questions? comments?

how is the side to side weight balance with the 2 stick packs on there? I know LiPo is lighter, but is it close?

Great build by the way.

Sweet truck. You need to get that thing on a track. Well, looks like you didn't have cogging issues in the vid. Good.

Is the Revo tranny in there, or is it an E-Maxx tranny? I thought the Revo tranny wasn't supposed work somehow. IDK though. But what ever you got looks to work good. Good Job.
