Well, I just could not resist. I have always loved nitro MT's. I started with a T-Maxx when they first came out (the Pro .15 motor). I bought a Revo when they were released and was racing that (was racing my Supermaxx before that). I modded the heck out of the Revo, too. Mainly getting it lighter. I know many people will say the Revo works best for them at 8.5 pounds, but my Revo was 7.1 pounds RTR with X-wings on the front, 2.5 motor, a NiMh rx battery and an aluminum chassis. I called the truck Sub7, since that was my goal with it. So, I decided to do a similar build, but with extended chassis, 3.3 motor and lipo rx pack.
I will be slowly building and modifying this. I will try and take pictures along the way, maybe even with weight comparison of stock and replacement parts.
I started with a nicely modded 3.3 Revo, (parts listed below) for a pretty good price.
It has the following:
Tekno sway bars
ERevo diff cups
RB Mods modded motor (1 gallon thru it)
RB Mods turbo head
New Ceramic motor bearings
New con rod
New Era billet motor mount
M2C Racing motor brace
8mm Tekno axles
Tekno front carriers
RPM arms front
RPM Tru Track rear arms
Tekno 17mm adapters
Here are some pics of it when I got it.
I have been taking it apart, cleaning it and started adding parts, taking off parts, weighing things and rebuilding it all. I have taken it down to the bare bones and will be updating the thread as I go.
Here is the Mini Revo race build that I did and that thread shows the private track that I get to run on (a friend owns it and lets me run there anytime I want).
