I'm looking at putting a 2 speed transmission into my ERBE. I've already bought the parts from a summit to have the diff lockers, though haven't installed them yet, so I'll get to that later on.
Generally speaking, I'm not a speed freak, speed runs don't really interest me for the revo as I don't really have anywhere suitable to do so, similarly I have no decent places that would be of any interest if I had a summit, hence buying the revo. I also don't have anything silly to jump off, so it's very much a land vehicle.
What I do have is a lot of dusty, sandy, and grassy hilly areas, and a few sports ovals at my disposal. I'm also lucky if I can find 20 minutes a week to drive the thing, so it just lives in the boot of my car incase I drive past somewhere of interest.
At the end of the day I just want a good, solid, reliable truck that's fairly versatile. Standard gearing for most days, but have the ability to lock the diffs and gear ratio right down for some childs-play crawling.
So, just wondering, has anyone put a 2 speed into a brushless truck? Is it likely to come with any transmission or electrical problems in the long run? Is the low range much lower than the high speed (which I'm going to match to the current single speed) to warrant having the thing in there in the first place?
I'd appreciate any experience on the subject. Thanks.
