Thanks fastmachine, will be good to hear how it goes. Good luck!
Why for the Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo or Summit are so many people changing their stock Motor and ESC (Velineon VXL-3m Waterproof ESC and Velineon 380 Brushless Motor)? The stock motor is relatively...
Has anyone upgraded their 1/16 E-Revo or Summit to have 2.8" wheels and a better motor and ESC to handle them?
Hi CMD-J, it's a lot clearer to me now, thank you for a great explanation.
Sorry I don't understand. Why do you need lower amps?
Hi KV = high RPM = high top speed low torque/acceleration
Low KV = low RPM = low top speed high torque/acceleration
Is the reason he's...
What's the benefit of running 6S on small kv, as opposed to running say 2/3S on higher kv? Surely he has to now try fit bigger batteries in the small chassis?
Excuse my ignorance please.
What other upgrades do you need to make to a 1/16 Merv/Summit to Handle the extra power?
Fasrmachine, I see you used to have a Castle 5700kV installed.
Why have you changed to the Leopard 3650 Motor?...
Thanks for the advise
I have a Merv, and have a mini Summit on order. I know both us the same radio transmitters and receivers. When I run the two cars at the same time, will they respond to their own...
I am also pretty new. I bought my son a Merv 2 weeks ago. The first run he crashed it and broke the chassis in two, so had to assemble on a new chassis, but gave me a chance to learn a bit.
The merv comes with 12mm hex, best check that these are.
USA1, did you ever find the skidplate you wanted? What did you get?
Thanks for the advise SB
I am looking to get Shims for my 1/16 E-Revo and 1/16 Summit front and rear diffs for spares for the next time I open the bulkheads.
Does anyone know what the part...
I have a 1/16 Summit VXL and a Mini Revo.
My son crashed the Merv and broke the chassis. I have ordered a new chassis. But my thinking, in order to prevent future damages of getting a...
I am pretty new, and have just got a mini e-revo for my 8 year old son. First day he rode it full speed into a wall, broke the chassis, steering arm and bulked. I have just ordered the new...
What size fan do you use on the 1/16 esc? I have a 20mm x 20 mm x 8 mm fan, it's pretty small, and doesn't cover all the heatsink fins. Do you think that'll make much difference to the temperatures?
How did you screw that into the esc's heatsink? Did you have to drill holes in the heatsink?
Thanks the MKS Pro GD-4 RC Car Gyro looks great.
Does anyone know where I can order one from in the UK? Have been looking and can only see them in th the US.
Thanks, you're right, it's probably not worth putting that extra stress on the the car
The 1/16 Summit VXL stock wheels are:
Width: 2.2" (56mm)
Diameter: 3.87" (98mm)
Has anyone tried a drift gyro. Would you recommend?
Which one would work with the 1/16 e-revo vxl? (I know it needs to be compatible with the 2.4Ghz radio).
Are the wheels on the left the stock 1/16 e-revo xvl wheels? What is the part number of the ones on the right please? Are they offset, i.e. do they make the car wider than the stock wheels? How much...
Thanks for the advice Petertje, as is said I am still learning. Why do you think 2.8" wheels are too big for the Merv? I know will have to change the gearing. What are the disadvantages?
What would you think of these on the 1/16 mini e-revo vxl?
Thanks for the advice, i'm still pretty new to this and am learning. I think I'll look at 2.8" 12 mm hex wheels.
