So I have a couple of things going on. First off I have just purchased a Telluride for my 4 y/o daughter, she loves to drive anything (tractors, elec power wheels and I let her shift the gears in my truck). My wife has an old E Maxx (3903/5 think), I have an old Smartec Snap On nitro and a HPI Savage nitro. The Savage I am selling and the Smartec I am going to convert to electric, hopefully by way of used parts after upgrading the wife's and daughter's and some Ebay stuff (cheaply is what I'm saying).
1. I want to slow my daughter's down to maybe 10 ish mph. I read another post that stated the 90T spur (traxxas #4690) should work with the stock 12t pinion giving it an overall ratio of 21.64 vs the factory of 19.68.
Any ideas if that would work?
2. The other idea I had was to go with a 55T motor (HPI possible).
Opinions on the motor or to do both???
If I replace the motor, then I have on to use in my Smartec conversion.
3. The other thing I was wondering is if I could use the better TQi controller #6509 which is supposed to be compatible with the #6519 receiver. That way I would also have a remote better remote for the Smartec, I would probably just buy a used pair (controller/receiver) from ebay). The reason for the controller is it has a speed control adjustment on it, I assume to limit the total throttle input??
Lots of questions I know. Upgrades to my wife's will come later, probably with Lipos and some sort of external low voltage sensor for each battery or maybe with a dual batt ESC.
