View Full Version : G2R Question
01.13.2006, 11:50 AM
Im building a G2R and read on this forum that i either have to turn the revo diffs upside down or reverse the motors/trans. Is there any benefits of doing one or the other? Im using the stock e-maxx motors for now. Thanks!

It would just be beneficial if you kept the weight distribution equal throughout the truck. Otherwise no real benefit.

so do u think the weight dist would be better with the trans normal or reversed?

Thank You Squee!!! I have two revos, I saw the G2R and had to try a revo/emaxx. Im not too familiar with electric/emaxx, but im can tell im gonna get addicted. I was waiting all day for an answer so i can move on with the build. Thanks again

I have a G2R and i run the tranny backwards I also run the esc over the rear shocks it helps the rear weight distributionif you have a BL system you just move two wires and you're set

Thanks for the tips crazy. I plan on going brushless when the tax money comes in. I havent dealt much with elec yet, whats a good BL system that will make my G2R insanely fast?

'insanely fast' what is insane in your eyes?
Promod is at a 70mph and still thinks he needs more speed, normally 40-45 mph is pretty insane for a monstertruck.
For this (40 mph) 14cells and a 9L would be enough.
You might consider stepping up to lipo though, this puts your truck on another level in acceleration and handling.

i would possible go with a xl motor such as the 8xl.

One more Q. On rc monster home page they have the Jan special 12020/L brushless combo deal for 300. Would this be a good route to go for a G2R, and is it a good deal?

Yes that should be good, if i were to choose a motor out of the 3, id choose a 10L.
