    So when you plug in the batteries it's instant on then I take it? I read where someone used a servo wire extension as it was safer then the switch.

    No, just remove the switch completely, and just plug/unplug your batteries.

    But if it's not the switch which is dead, CC won't cover my MMM if I remove the switch...

    And in fact I prefer protecting the switch with a balloon rather than remove it (for the moment ).

    Body update

    I wasn't happy with the Revo 3.3 body because it dangerously rubbed against the MMM wires... As I wanted a pre-painted body (I often broke bodies ), I bought an E-Maxx body and I dremeled it so that it fits the E-Revo.

    I like the result :

    Here are the mods I made (20' job) :













    My MMM is still in the hands of CC. I hope I will get it before the end of the summer holidays...

    Popoxx, been a fan of your emaxx for a while... and now the revo's looking good too!

    I'm really digging the revo with the max body on there. I'm surprised it fits as well as it does!

    Thanks !

    Yep the E-Maxx body fits the E-Revo w/o big mods required. It's cool because as I destroy lots of bodies (hard bashing !), I often need to buy new ones, so a stock body already painted & with decals applied is perfect for me And I love the E-Maxx bodies, nice design and colors !

    What suspension setup are you running? do you have the LT rockers in there or just the P2s in the innermost hole? It looks like you have more ground clearance than mine, but i can't decide if that's due to the tires or not.

    I'm currently using HPI flux tires/rims.

    Flux wheels are bigger than mine so it's not the reason.
    I use P2 rockers but the pushrods are mounted in the inner holes, and I use hard springs (Pink in the front, Purple in the back), so my E-Revo doesn't sag when it's off.

    Yeah i was thinking maybe the bigger wheels were just hiding the ground clearance. yours is a cleaner more open look so you could see the GC better.

    I did what I wanted to do for a long time : change the way I secure the packs ! (my SMC packs required specific mods to fit the boxes).

    Up to now I used nylon tie wraps...




    Here is what I did :

    And because I'm a hard basher, the retainer clips weren't strong enough to prevent the packs from sliding :


    Left : twisted / Right : stock

    So I installed hard foams :









    I'm going to test this new setup with another member of the Traxxas forum pdcsq who own an E-Maxx and a Flux Pics and vid soon

    Looks good Popoxx, pretty clever way to keep them closed.

    I think your foam idea will work. It's similar to what i do, only i'm using the foams that came with my e-maxx trimmed a tad and placed in the same as yours. Seems to work really well.

    Here is the vid of the bashing session with pdcsq : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zldumeK2wZs.

    Nothing outstanding, just fun

    And here is the thread about it : http://monster.traxxas.com/showthrea...46#post4200646.

    By the way my battery door mod (posts 256 & 257) works great ! My packs can't move !

    A scratch build with lots of upgrades is really expensive : ~$1300 for mine
    But it's really easy and fun to build an E-Revo like I did

    LCG ??!!!
    I'm a basher I need HCG !

    Next steps are a RC Solutions rollcage and ******* 5000mAh 2s1p 20C hardcase lipo packs

    And I will soon test two promising products of a new small RC company (I can't say the name for the moment sorry) : wheel hubs (zero slop objective) and motor bracket (to eliminate flex)

    The Summit is a really innovative truck but it's just a modified E-Revo so it won't be funny for me to upgrade it. And I'm not a fan of rock-crawling, I prefer a fast basher MT

    My next RC car will be a 1/5 MT But I don't know which one and when...
