Talking E-REVO TWINS

is it posible to run a MMM esc on 2x 2200 motors buy soldering a "y" connector to each? i'll be running on 5250 6s 30c constant lipos. if i do this, how long will the batteries last? (provided i can)

I can see a Y connector working, but I don't think the ESC would be able to cope. also, in most dual motor trucks you need to reverse the second motor, and although that's possible, it might have some kind of timing advance (i'm assuming its sensored.)

The REVO diffs will not hold up to that much power and you would need two speed controls to run two brushless motors. One MMM / 2200 kv motor on 6s will do very well in a REVO.

One motor in the XL range (70mm length) should do it already. No need for 2 motors

It would not work and would be a waste of time and money IMO .

One MMM 2200Kv system will make an E REVO do standing backflips already , why would you want 2 ?

It will not be any faster than 1 system , just more drivetrain shredding torque .

waste of money and weight. One is enough their is no need for another one. One mamba monster on a 6s lipo will make your revo do 50-60mph.
