    Why though? If it can be done, why not try it? I know I won't, but wouldn't it be interesting to see if someone can accually do it. What are we hear for? You live and you learn.

    They once asked a man who climbed Mt. Everst why he did it. His response was "because it was there". Why do some people modify thier RC truck, because they can!


    100% agreed!

    For the last time the only thing i meant by that is mmm set-up in a mini is a dumb idea and a dual 1/10 vxl set-up in a 1/16th scale is a dumb idea. I dont really care what people do with there trucks etc. If someone wants to strap a chipmunk on there truck for added speed thats there decision so? I do not want to tell people what to do i was just stating my opinon. I wish everyone good luck and tear em' up if its in your blood to do so.

    Why did you make this thread if you just wanted to argue with everybody?

    1/8th scale brushless setups are not limited to 1/8th scale trucks and buggys, there only recommended for use on those size. I bet theres plenty of peolpe using them on 1/10 and smaller just for the fun of it. We all know a MMM on the 1/16 Erevo is crazy but I would love to see it, and I cant wait until someone does it. Why would anyone add a NOS system to a street car when the speed limit is 65, because we can!
    If you dont like it, just change the warranty.

    I think an engineer would be dissappointed if people didn't tinker with something they built(unless you work for sony, but that's off topic). It would be like having a baby, and not wanting it to grow up. So in that regards, I say MMM, wings, and a 10 foot ramp for the mini revo!

    My goal is 35-40mph with a run time of over an hour. Now for me that would be pure rc heaven. Tons of run time with good control.

    I find a nice park with a lot of acreage, preferably a dry retention pond in it and let my revo fly There happens to be a park just like that near my place. I'm not really interested in racing. Just enjoy bashing and working on rc's.

    I have to agree. While I am 100% online with doing want you want with your ride I also feel that speed runs up and down the road must get boring. For me, I sacrifice some speed for run time and then simply look for areas that are fun with out doing 50 to 60mph. You would be surprised just how much fun can be had in the sub 30mph ranges given the right environment.
    Yep, yours is faster. OH; and it's broken too!

    As far as speeed runs are concerned, there is an adrenaline factor to running a mini, hi performance race car past you at 60-70 mph. I agree that bashing is definetly more fun, thats why I keep a set of Zombies and smaller pinion around for back yard bashing/jumping/back-flipping with my BEER.
