    Hello everyone,
    I just saw that my post has been viewed more than 1,900 times. So I say thank you for your interest to my project! Although part Velineon step is completed, the brush engine version remains to be done! So here are some pictures showing the assembly mounted in the car! For the moment, I'm doing a video montage to show you the road test! All questions have their answers, you just have to ask!









    Hope i'll like!

    It looks awesome! congratulations!
    question: i can see it has two motors two esc, are you going to run with two batteries I guess.. and does it have two servos?
    for one is just too much weight maybe right.
    Can't wait to see a video!!
    also I wanna see how the electronics are connected

    Hi agosb, yes i 'will run 2 bat., each esc is powering 1 motor. and tomorow, i will do testruns with both system on 2 bats.(14.4v. on each)!
    And yes it has 2 steering servos, if that's what you mean!

    that is so cool congrats on finishing it, i can not wait to see how fast it is. Question: does the body rub on the front motor? How close is the brushed version from completion?

    As of now, yes, the body rubs a bit, but longer body posts will take care of the problem. But it does fit pretty well, even if rubbing. As for the brushed version, the BL version answered a lot of questions i had, and that means that the brushed version will have a transfer gear(to clear the tranny). So Back to drawing board!!!

    since you covered the other servo spot with a esc you should get one powerful servo to turn that beast.
    What batteries are you going to use 2s or 3s

    The setup adds only 6.75oz. to the vehicule without batteries Inside... For total weight, i don't know how much weights a stock 7.2 nimh battery.

    single servo is a good idiea, but all the pièces i used are traxxas ones, exept for screws! So does traxxas have a servo that would do the job? I will check that! Lipos are only coming in mid Febuary, but it will run everything tou can throw at it, or at least, the max written in esc's specs!

    the one that is on it is the only traxxas one that will bolt on, but since i know that u like to modify you can get one of the bigger traxxas servos and modify the chassis to make it fit.

    i could do an exteneded version of the chassis to get the needed room to put them, and i would get 2 vxl-3s in there!

    Hi Ken448, i know that it will get to top speed, since it has twice the torque. As for top speed, I think, but this is only speculation, that it will go over 50mph... as the 1/10 E-Revo gets to 30mph+ with 2 titan 550, i don't see how it would get to this speed with only 1 titan 550 motor. I'm probably wrong, but given that Merv is the only of its kind, the only way to know is to do some roadtests!
    Cheers!

    Heres the reasoning. The motors arent going to spin any faster than what they are designed to. That said.. They WILL be under slightly less load, and will spin SLIGHTLY faster than having just 1 in the truck. Since 2 motors are now doing the work of 1 motor. You have effectively doubled your torque but left HP the same (same as running batteries in parallel. The truck is SLIGHTLY faster, but the motor can pull the juice more efficiently, and there is less voltage drop) You will get to speed faster (if you can keep it from back flipping, but you wont be doubling your speed.

    but if you have more torque, you can gear taller, that way you wil go faster

    Thanks, your welcome. The look of it was one of my goal, i wanted it to look almost as if it was factory made, and also, to fit on every stock merv! Now, i'm working on improving it!

    i think it would be possible to gear taller, but i must check for the max diameter of spur to fit in, and also, check if it would rub against the center diff. Right now, it is on 28/55. i think i could put a 61t spur and 31t pinion... but i will need to draw a slithly bigger motor plate! But i will wait to see how it'll run on lipo before going any taller!

    Thanks, your welcome! i like the sound too, it comes from two HR 28t hardenned steel pinion on the plastic spur. i might put a steel spur too. i believe it would sound good!
