    My New Revo Brushless Conversion

    Hey guys I just bought this used Revo 2.5 that was converted to brushless. I'll be posting updated pics as I go along because its a roller. Here's what I'll be putting in:
    MMM 2200kv brushless system
    Traxxas tqi 5-channel
    Not sure what servo yet (any ideas would be really helpful)
    2x2s venom 5000mah 40C lipos

    I'll be adding upgrades as I go along so that list may just be the start.

    Here it is:

    Haha two is definitely better. Its a completely custom build and the transmission was taken from an e-maxx for more balance and durability

    And byrnieman, the tires are proline bowtie 3.8 (40 series)

    Does anyone know if the new e maxx tranny will mount up the same on the revo chassis as the 3906 e maxx tranny does? That's a last resort if my revo slipper mod doesn't go as planned.

    Okay everything is out together. Bought 2 60C venom 7.4V lipos and popped those bad boys in. Ran it in my backyard for about 5 minutes and it suddenly stops. All the gears (spur/pinion) are spinning smoothly but the truck itself is my moving. Like no driveshafts are spinning. I think I might've blew a diff but what do u guys think?

    Only the slipper. Didn't realize it came loose. The nut holding it on was wearing down so I replaced that with a fresh one and dabbed some thread locker on there as well

    You can get them just about anywhere. Just search up red bull rc stickers and there will be plenty to choose from in a variety of different sizes.

    I had no place to put the receiver so I got the tekno r/c receiver box. It is quite large but holds a lot of wires which I needed. Definitely cleaned up the truck nicely. It was supposed to be mounted on the right side, but that's where my servo is, so with a couple modifications using screws, servo tape, and a dremel, I managed to make it work on the left side.
    Equipped with a handy-dandy on/off switch mount

    Had to get rid of those 23mm hubs so I picked up some traxxas 17mm hubs along with badlands/renegade. They look so sick in my opinion. Here's some pics:

    I'm in the market for a slipper set up, the one listed for the Robinson slipper is like a 65t gear, but they have a 54t listed for the tmaxx.... Are they interchangeable? And is the Robinson slipper easy to work with? I'm looking for one that doesn't require constant adjusting and fiddling with....

    I bought the 54T spur as you are saying but I haven't put it on to see if it works yet. I don't want to take apart this slipper all to put back on the stock one. I'll check out that 54T spur for you tonight and post on this thread if it works or not.

    Oh yes it will sorry. I just haven't done it because I don't have the slipper pegs.
