Well I'm home sick with the flu or food poisoning and I got bored so I snapped some pics of my erevo.
Was gonna dye the chassis black but as I was sick yesterday I didnt have a chance to grab any rit dye oh well.
Also since I've been waiting for 1515/1y/f for about a week now I've had a bunch of time to get it ready for brushless. Man this is an expensive hobby. more expensive than my paintball addiction. I think I pretty well blew my original budget right out the window....
I opted to go for the trakpower LiPoly packs
This presented me with another problem though. How was I going to hook up the battery leads. I borrowed a couple ideas from longbills build with a little take of my own.
I didnt like the way the 4mm bullet connectors hooked up so I went with the biggest ones my LHS has some venom 5.5mm
Taking the leads out the battery vents did have its own challenges. I needed to slightly modify the vents themselves as they were a little tight to the shrink tubing on the wires. The side of the battery box was also tight so I ground away some of the plastic
the little cutouts gave me just the clearance I needed while still not being visible when they're installed
Im running 4s so I shouldnt have much issues with the MMMv2?
While I was taking it apart to see how to get at the chassis without pull the front and rear assemblies right apart I noticed a couple of things that made me go ***.
Notice anything? perhaps the lack of screws holding the steering stop inplace.
Its not like they fell out either.
Heres a picture of the mounting hole for the steering stop. notice the lack of threads or any evidence there was a screw ever in it
Sent traxxas an email about that on Sunday. still waiting for a reply.
This next one I don't even know how I did it but here ya go:
Thats the rear bulk head L/H side cracked right through.
Oh I was really bored on Saturday and I decided to hook one of the titans back up to the truck and run it through the MMM. Took it out to the alley, did a couple passes. did a couple wheelies and then managed to endo it. Tried to do it again, Then I noticed the magic smoke coming outta the motor. That what I get for my impatience I guess.
Was hoping my motor would be here today and I would have something to do while sick but thats not looking to good right now. mailman came already and no package. Might need to take tomorow off too....
