    My Revo 3.3 Electric Conversion

    Well i finally got all the stuff together to do it! This is what i started with I have to give the 3.3 credit it has been a good motor , byt i got to go where the power is . These are the parts that i got tekno conversion kit . It seemed like the fastest easiest way to do the conversion . I started by removing all the nitro stuff engine , fuel tank , pipe ,easy start wires . Then it was bath time . I also decided to put a set of rpm true track arms on the rear i been wanting to install them for awhile now seem like good a time as any . bath time lol

    all i like now is esc ( by the way the esc mount is really easy to install just bolts rite to the trans ) what yall think bout my mamba monster setup ? just about just bot to put servo back in and mount rx box where servo use to go on right side here the finished product what do you guys think ? this kit was easy to install no real major fab work of anything i took it out few min ago and on 6s this think is insane my 3.3 never went this fast

    what kind of lipo batt is that, it looks tiny. wheel/tire looks good i just hope your diffs are strong enough with all that power. tekno electric conversion for nitro revos are very straight forward but if you have the black can motor that came from ERBE you cant mount your ESC on top of the tranny, the wires are too short so ESC requires mounting closer to motor.

    now lets see some video of it running

    how do you like those RPM axle carriers, i heard that you can take out the metal ring off the stock carriers and put it in there to prevent it from poping out easily.

    it takes a good throttle control to not destroy your e-revo diffs on 6s.

    Have you driven the truck yet? How do you like the Tekno Kit? I have a 2.5 that I haven't touched in years was planning on doing this conversion to it.
