    14.4v?

    I am looking to go with two NIMH packs in the mini e-revo. My question is how do you think the internal gears and diffs will hold up to that power. I really dont want to be fixing the truck that often. I know more speed leads to more crashes, but I can deal with that

    Well the fact remains these little vxl trucks will do 50mph with two Nimh batteries!

    It will be over geard a little and heat up the motor and esc, so a smaller pinion is needed to get a solid 50 without hurting things..

    I can't see going over 30-35mph and racing something this small off-road. It would be a major handful.

    50mph with a light weight 1/16 scale is not going to be good... But it will be fun!
