Default Brushless = Fun

I have converted a Revo, Jammin CRT.5, CEN Matrix TR Arena and a Kyosho Kanai to brushless. Great projects, fun to drive, brushless is the way to go. Brushless will become more and more mainstream, Novak is coming out with some really nice conversion kits, Tekno Racing has a nice Revo kit, and RC-Monster has tons of stuff.

How does the jammin run with the mm motor? I have a brushless t-maxx that I run w/ mm esc, velineon motor, and 3s lipo, it is wicked fast.

Unfortunetly it has been raining here for the last 4 days and I can't get out to test drive the CRT.5.

badassrevo, your right RCproductdesigns makes some great high quality conversion kits.

For the CEN Matrix, did the kyosho 46T spur bolt on, assuming you used it?

I wouldn't mind doing some CEN conversions as the cars are pretty durable and cheap.

zman_99, I am using lipo's right now but I did experiment with NiMH in the Revo (two 6-cell and two 7-cell batteries). But the lipo's have so much more power (voltage/amps), they really make a big difference. I am running 2s2p 6000mah in my CRT.5 with the MM7700 motor, 4s2p 6000mah in the buggy/truggy, and 4s2p 8000mah in the Revo.
