Default Official ReVtech Motor/Battery questions

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to start a new thread about the new ReVtech line of motors that have been released a few weeks ago. They have a new stator design to increase power across the whole power band along with more RPM. They generate a lot more torque at all RPM levels. These were designed around off road cars and heavier TC cars.

Any questions about any ReVtech products feel free to ask here or direct email at [email protected]

Thanks
EA

Yes I would start 2 teeth lower than you normally run. The stator design really adds a lot more RPM under a load and torque to pull it with. I would also start the timing 1 notch less than you ran a d3 at as well. If your running in a Blinky class start it at the last mark.....but you can go past that if needed. It will go around to the + sign on the ReVtechs!! Just always remember to check temp the first few minutes when trying new gearing or setups.

Default Poor quality battery

I love my 6000mah 60C RevTech battery (way more power than my Thunderpower 65Cs)but after 2 uses the negative battery sleeve is coming out when I remove the battery post. I have always been very gentle as to keep wear to a minimum. Battery still works fine though.

To top it off, it looks as if there is NO WARRANTY on these packs after the first charge. Sure wish I would've payed a bit more attention before buying one. I guess I will have to crack the pack and fix it myself.

A lot more torque than what?

They produce more torque and RPM across the entire power band than the D3's. They also have more timing adjustment for blinky classes.

Than the D3 motors. The stator is completely new.

I've noticed I can get the D3 motors through Tower Hobbies. Will these Revtech motors be available through Tower as well?

^They're expensive there. Superior hobbies should still have some in stock, I think they had $82 for the mod motors and $75 for the 13.5 and up motors. Pretty good price.

I've heard from everyone who runs them they're punchier and feel even better than the D3. Saw a 17.5 Revtech dominate the mod SC class last weekend. Couldn't tell it was a 17.5 on the straight, amazing stuff.

Is there any intentions to also make 550 motors as well?

I would imagine that Tower will carry them also but not sure when they will have them in stock. You can contact me and I can send you some places that have them in stock and ready to ship.

Thanks for the answer. Yes superior stocks a lot of our products and sells them at very reasonable prices too!

Not at this time. The stator design in the 550 D3 version is pretty darn stout already and designed for all out power.
