thinking on convert a 2.5 or 3.3 revo - 05.08.2011, 08:12 AM

hello.
currently i own a e-maxx that i usually run on single 3s lipo with vxl esc and a hv 5.5 motor.
i have the truck as light as possible and i am happy with it!

but and what about this setup on a revo 2.5 or 3.3 chassis?
will be lighter and faster than my e-maxx?

i donīt want to go for 4s setups since i have many 3s lipos and it seems that is enough for the kind of use i give to my trucks.

help and information will be welcome!!

my general project is a light single battery monster on 3s only.

greetings


you are what you race!!

What pitch pinions do you use on the maxx? 32p or mod1? I would suggest 32p/mod.08 on the revo for a more suitable gear ratio range for your setup.

Mech brake and 2-speed/locked or ESC brake and locked w/ reverse?

i was thinking esc brake and locked on 2 gear w reverse.
but for now my concern is if i will get a lighter car than my current e-maxx?
if someone tell me the weight of a 2.5 or 3.3 roller revo i can calculate how much will weight load with combo and lipo.

thankīs in advance

Here's my revo 2.5 tekno converted with novak hv pro and 6.5 and 4s and it's a blast.

i'll try to weigh it for you tonight, but it feels heavier than my e-maxx.









she now has a proline desert rat body, new wing, 17mm hub conversion and truggy wheels/tires.

i finally finish the conversion and spent no money do it on buying conversion kits or parts.
i made a custom motor mount, a custom battery tray and a custom esc mount.

my goal was to keep things well mount on the chassis and as light as possible.
some pics:



i use a jconcepts illuzion body.




i use a ezrun sc8 combo on single 3s lipo geared at 13/48.


for battery i cut a plate tu put the battery tray without having flexing issues and to keep lipo close to chassis.




for the motor i use a 4 mmīs steel plate.


since ezrun esc is small i was able to put it between front shocks mount and the gearbox.
it was the best place i found since i donīt want a esc stucking over other parts.

for the receiver i use a traxxas stampede 4x4 water proof box and put it on the place of one of the steering servos since i use single servo setup.
i use all stcok screws places to put custom parts and the only holes i done was for the esc mount.
also with this parts location i can upgrade the chassis with front and rear sway bars and i can change or take of any part without having to remove others.
the car is running between 35 and 40 mph and that thankīs to the 2700kv of this 4 pole leopard motor and without anything heat up and i also have center diff that i want to take of because i only bash and this center diff is taking some speed and power from rear wheels to front ones.
i am waiting for e-revo shocks and some aluminiuns plates and that is it for now.
with lipo and ready to run the car weights 9.24 pounds so it is way lighter than a e-revo loaded too.

i had a e-revo on 4s on past but this baby is way better!!
hope you guyīs like and after i spent 3 packs today i just want to bash more and more!!

greetings


you are what you race!!
