    e-revo motor change

    hi, im going to buy the e-revo with the titan motors because im going to be using it in the snow and the momamba would just fry. the titans aren't powerful enough for me so I'm going th change the motors to the velinions because they're waterproof (how fast will the e-revo be with twin-velineons (high end)). i was wondering if they're was a waterproof motor that was faster or as fast for the same or less amount of money.
    what esc to go with it (3-4s). thx

    well the titans ARE waterproof and they are pretty powerfull trust me i took mine through lakes poodles and snow ect. and the stock esc it comes with is waterproof to so your set with brushed. but if ur looking for brushless then just get the traxxas brushless system for 1 16 modes
    what's up guys

    Don't buy the 1/16 model brushless system it won't even move one tire and they do sell a water proof mamba monster or you can easily waterproof the original mm

    I highly recommend the erbe it is a blast and by the time you upgrade a brushed erevo to brushless spec it will cost you more in the long run. You could buy a new roller off eBay and put whatever motor you want in it

    but there is a piece that joins 2 motors to one, can i take it out?

    is the 2200kv waterproof or water resistant?

    is the 2200kv faster then the one on the e-revo brushless?

    It's the one that comes with it. It's the esc that's not water proof but the new mm2 is. If you get this set up it will be just like a erevo brushless edition but water proof

    you could check out kershaw designs, they sell brushed motors, but they are actually pretty fast and more than two times more powerful than stock.

    go brushless and dont look back ive see numerous threads of people doing the upgraded brushed motors from dewalt and kershaw and most of them end up going brushless in the end because the brushed motors just dont last and dont have anywhere near the power of a brushless

    well, i certainly would, but i don't happen to have three hundred dollars to buy a nice system like that.
