    I can post them later. The warranty issue went quicker than expected and I got my money back in the form of store credit, which is fine since I order so much stuff from there.

    Yikes. Greased Lightening is your friend. Unlike oven cleaner (which eats aluminum :eek:) and chokes you with fumes, it simple removes the color after a good soak. This stuff can be found in...

    Well, not exactly, you have much pricer electronic (...not to mention faster and most likely better quality), lower center of gravity, and there was fabrication involved. Why did you chop-up the...

    It belongs here in my opinion. E-revo guys have no interest in this conversion and it still has more in common with a non-converted Revo. That said, I put my conversion thread in the E-revo...

    ...but if the E-revo is anything like the Revo 3.3, it comes with long travel suspension components which would allow you to jack it up quite high.

    Correction: $280 includes the $45 in shipping costs.




    Will do, especially considering how cheap the batteries were.


    I doubt it. You had a fan on it. The fan is not all that strong,...

    After 10 actual running minutes of playing around, setup, and a few speed runs, motor never passed 126F, ESC was 106F, and battery case was 100F. We'll see how things go with the owner.
  18. Revo 3.3 budget brushless conversion, The Sequel

    This is a build thread inspired by reflexa's "Revo 2.5R budget brushless conversion" thread, as it uses the same electronics, but some different hardware, all of which anyone could buy or do.

    I'm saying the tooth shape is different, as if RR and Traxxas use different pressure angles.

    Well, I actually installed it today and found out that the tooth profile of the RR input gears do not match the stock plastic gears. With the stock tranny (FOC, no first gear on the 2-speed shaft,...
