Default Brushless Revo

Here's another addition to the brushless club. Brushless Revo.

Pictures of the first build. Second build very similar but Lipo.

Truck 1--->
Battery--------> 12 cell 3700mah NIMh
Motor----------> Feigao 9xl 1853kv
Gearing--------> 14/36

Truck 2--->
Battery--------> 3s 10,000mah Lipo
Motor----------> Feigao 8xl 2084kv
Gearing--------> 16/38

Parts I used to convert--->
Motor Mount ----------------> RC Monster mount
Pinions ----------------------> RC Monster (never have enough to start)
Motor Heat Sink -------------> RC Monster XL size
Battery Tray ----------------> Tekno Revo battery tray
Battery Straps --------------> Tekno battery strap kit (3 straps)
ESC mount ------------------> Tekno ESC mount
BEC -------------------------> Castle 10amp
Speed Control ---------------> Castle Mamba Max
Gold Plated Bannana Plugs for motor connection from Radio Shack
Deans plugs for Batteries and ESC.
Second switch for main switch on.
3 screws to lock tranny in second gear to use motor brake.

Since the pictures I have cleaned up the wiring a little. Added brace to keep wires out of gear mesh. Never saw that

coming but it did and now one of my speed control wires is a couple inches shorter. Also got the bec in the radio

box by soldering to the speed control end rather than the battery end.

Here's some pictures off the tidying up. Added brace across roll bar to route wires higher. Then resoldered bec to reach receiver box. (Receiver box is stock throttle servo box. Managed to stuff receiver, bec, transponder and all the wires in there as well as a switch mounted inside the lid. Nothing else will fit!) Picture shows tight fit. BEC and transponder fit tightly in front of the receiver. Moved ESC switch to be taped to side of steering servo.

Consistency is Redundancy . Just lots of wheel time.

3.3's but 2.5 would work the same because I don't use the space in front of the tranny.
