Well, I've had my e-Revo for quite some time now, and love it! However, the out-of-the-box speed has gotten to be somewhat sluggish, I suppose I've just "gotten used to it." Full disclosure, I've been doing this for well over a decade, but only as a hobby, been through multiple Nitro models, and now that I'm older, I wanted something electric that would just work and be fun to play around with on days off - so I'm not up-to-date on much anymore, I'm quite rusty.
I watched a few YouTube videos of guys doing the upgrade to the engine and battery to make it screaming fast (doing back-flips even at mid-throttle)... but after giving it some thought, I thought it was best to come right to the source, the guys here at Traxxas!
I do have a couple 2,200mah Lipo 2S batteries, and I think I'll need: a pinion for the engine, and a "series" connector to combine the power of the dual-batteries rather than the "Y" connector I currently use to extend run-time... (???)
---But if someone would be kind enough to make a part(s) list below, and a description of the process, or a link to a video that has solid trustworthy advice - that would be awesome! I'll get my parts now, and still have some time to enjoy it over the fall before winter sets in.
PS: What are the two biggest (well, most powerful) batteries my 1/16 e-Revo VXL will accept? I saw a YouTube of someone with a 4S battery in it somehow, and it would do back-flips at over 40mph somehow, amazing! If you could also add a link to the most powerful battery that would be great.
