Hi thought i would post my Brushless Revo build thread as a lot of my ideas have come from this forum.
luckily i work in the usa so i can obtain parts easier and cheaper than most in the UK.
Welcome to my Project Revo build.
I have been planning this build for some time now and have amassed most of the parts for this build but have been lacking time!
The ideas which are going into this build have been put together from other project builds mostly from the america.
I hope to post a full parts list for this project in the near future for anyone looking for parts.
The project is a scratch build from parts bought either new or off stripped down vehicles over ebay. Anyone wishing to put together an E-REVO note that this is not a cheaper way to build.
Better to buy a roller or working vehicle then add the parts you need.
The basic colours for the E-REVO is black,red and silver using aluminium parts where flexability is not compromised.
My aim is to build a light basher, Excessive speed is no a priority for me. I want the vehicle to look good and handle well i do plan on using it. no shelf queen here!
The first thing to do was Rit dye the chassis and rubber components.
The next thing on the agenda was to strip the new revo transmission down as i want to
Replace the bearings with Acer ceramic bearings.
Remove any rough edges from the gears.
Install a centre diff after rebuilding and replacing the 500k oil.
And lastly a lot of people will not agree with this but i liberally coat the gears with a heavy grease i use called Gorilla Snawt.
Next was to rebuild the transmission and whilst rebuilding i noticed play on the center differential and input shaft so i had to install 1 x 6mm shim to either side of the center diff and 1 x 5mm shim to the front of the input shaft.
I next installed a modified Hot Racing motor plate which had to be converted to single motor,
The motor plate is fitted with extra heat sinks.
Then fitted a hot racing heatsink/motor mount.
To finish the transmission off a Hot racing 54t metal spur and dual slipper clutch has been fitted.
Thats it for today , more to come
