I am threadjacking kind of badly in the MMM Tuning or Mamba XL thread, so I think I will start my own ERBE Q&A thread here. The project has been completed, and any questions about its build, what parts I used, and how I did things should already be answered on my build thread on Digital.Complex: http://www.digitalcomplex.org/index.php?showtopic=774
Motor: Castle/Neu 1717 1580Kv
ESC: Mamba XL
Batteries: ******* ********** 4s 4500mAh 25/50C x2 (series or parallel)
Gearing: 23/40 1.0M, 40/75 mph
Major Modifications: LST2/XXL CVAs and diffs, HPI center dogbones, relocated Rx box
Answering Terry's question:
There is no racing scene here in Hawaii, so the extent of my ERBE's job is jumping and speed runs. The chassis itself is fairly beat up, but that's mostly due to the previous owner...bought the Revo on ebay as a Novak-powered 5605 and swapped almost or replaced every single piece out except the chassis itself. I plan on replacing it as soon as there are signs of it giving out. At the moment, majority of the damage is on the undercarriage beneath the battery trays, since it bottoms out a lot while jumping since it's heavy.
The post on D.C where I make recommendations and explain things to people interested in doing their own build like this, or for whoever wants to read, is here: http://www.digitalcomplex.org/index....ndpost&p=11323 it's long but hopefully I covered whatever questions you may have.
Let me know what you guys think. (: There are several videos of the E-Revo Beast Edition (among other things, such as my EDF-powered Revo, and my Revo 3.3 with an outrunner brushless) on my Youtube Channel (digitalcomplex).
