I wouldn't suggest going this route. As I had been told by others; the tranny is a weak point and you'll end up having to swap it out for an e-maxx tranny.

Slowly making some progress here. Threw the T'E-Maxx together yesterday to check things out and the bucking isn't all that bad, actually and shouldn't be a problem at all for it's intended use.

Not sure how our scenarios would compare, but I just went from 4S to 6S and my E-Revo is quite a different animal now.
