    U gonna run a EVX in the pede? You could have the pede be a water truck, the maxx be a basher/offroader, and the revo be a high speed truck, or some combo there of.

    I might go for the MMM, but I love waterproofing to much, and I dont want to void the warrenty on a $300 system...

    lol Mike if it was just that easy, I already started the revo, don't think the little lady would like it if I started another E maxx too! did your wife have her surgery yet? if so Hows she doing?....well after further mock ups, its gonna be easier to make the e maxx the brushless @ 6s, and the e revo the twin Hitachi 18 volters ( until they die, then twin dewalts ) ran off the mamba monster esc @ 6s , and the Pede with the dewalt @ 16.8 NimH or 4s lipo, and power I know what you mean I cant believe that castle hasn't water proofed the MMM yet. I cant believe that I don't see as many posts about steering issues on the E Maxx, Once again I have stripped the gears in the 2075 servos, not to dis on traxxas, but they need a beefier servo for these big/heavy high power trucks! I looked at some Hitec servos, but even the high torque metal gear servos still have one plastic gear in them, maybe that gear is not likely to be the one that strips out? does anyone have a problem if I post some e revo pics in this post, since you guys are the ones I usually truck talk with?

    you could change the gears to metal and leave it waterproof, or buy a higher spec metal gear servo and plasti dip it.
    Changing the gears is cheapest option if you want to stay at the specs of the 2075.
    swapping out 2075 gears to metal
    or youtube searching google will come up quite a how too's..

    The Hitec are fine as long as you use a servo saver/stock bell cranks/something.

    Futaba and Savox also make verry good servos, and any servo can be waterproofed with liquid electrical tape and petrolium jelly/silicon grease.

    ^that and pain meds are the best thing since sliced bread, my Grandpa just got 18 teeth pulled in 3 weeks, lots of pain meds in that to, especially when hes playing clarinet or tuba...


    And revos are awesome, just dont go on about how they're better than the maxx.

    lol I would never say they are better than the maxx! The thing I think I like the best is the video thats out there that shows the revo going down a set of steps on a angle and i just think the way the suspension moves, looked way cool.
    here are some pics of my dual motor mounts that will eventually have two dewalts on it. as soon as i run the life out of these Hitachi's...lol


    I'm gonna use a mamba monster esc, , on these dual Hitachi's @ 6s, and I'm thinking about 20/65 gearing (I have been in touch with castle and they think it should work running both motors in parallel in the brushed mode )

    Ya, you're probaly not going to cook a MMM on brushed motors...
    Gonna use 14v DeWalts or 18v/24v Dewalts?

    Looks like pretty skimpy wire from the motors to the ESC, maybe want to make that 12 or 14 gauge (MMM uses 10 gague MAXX cable).

    That looks really beast with the snowman placemat...

    yeah that's whats been said Mike, but I'm thinking twin 18 volters, over-volted to 22.2 volts (6s Lipo) Im still debating , since Im running the mmm on the maxx soon i want to run 6s on that, and the twin dewalts will be on the revo, and id be able to use the same batteries on both....
    I think I have the servo problem solved!, my 2075's now have metal gears....lol the gear set I used has been discontinued and I could only find 8 sets total and I bought them all ! I haven't had a chance to bash it hard with the modified servos, my batteries were close to dead, but so far it looks promising!

    the gear set even came with bearings too, instead of bushings, and it works in the 2056's I have too!

    Im right here, faithfully checking the forum on Christmas Day. AoD has been gone for a while and does not appear to be around any more. hopefully he will one day reapear to offer top quality advice and guidance, but for the time being we will have to do without him.

    here we go again more steering issues now the bell crank arm broke where it connects to the link that connects it to the servo horn, my next upgrade is the Integy Aluminum Steering Bell Crank (Blue): T-Maxx 2.5 & 3.3 im using the t maxx setup because its a single piece on the servo saver side,instead of the spring loaded arm, i have it all installed but there are some more mods to be done it will be similar to this but no servo savers

    this is the arm ill be using instead of the servo saver arm

    She went back to work today for the 1st day. I can tell she is in alot of pain tonight but she should be ok. Its hard when it comes to convincing the better 1/2's. I know all about it! LOL!!!! I had to talk mine into letting me get another set of headers for the stang. It took about 3 hrs of talking with her and $315 but Ive got a set of 1 3/4 on the way. Now I can take the 1 5/8 off!!!

    yeah mike im still around.....thats too cool! you did a great job on the stang! It deserves to be in there!!!
    I bench tested the revo today with the twin 18 volt Hitachi's today- 22.2 volts for five minutes and they did great! I know it wasn't a "true" test because they were only under the load of turning the tires without being on the ground, but man they seem like they are gonna Rock!, soon as I burn out the brushes I'm going to twin dewalt 18 volters , at least they have replaceable brushes, and as far as them taking the 22.2volt 6s voltage , should be no problem, those things are beasts! I actually read somewhere that they over volted the 14.4 volt dewalt to 22.2 volts without any issues!

    LOL, It looks like that pede will do a stand-still wheelie with that huge motor on the back.

    And the Stang looks great, I wouldn't mind seeing a vid of the stang movin... Maybe PM it so you dont violate forum rules. You just need a mustang body for your maxx!!.

    And I hope your wife starts to feel better.
