Well I was perusing through the full size forum and came across this gem. Seeing as the mini and full size chassis are pretty much the same except for size. I figure this might be a viable option for those looking for run time and speed.
ERevo_Lover's Battery Compartment Mod
Maximizer 17mm Bead Locks
Looks like its doable. god we are crazy! we have another month until the car will be out and we're gonna have a list of 10 things to do haha.
1. daul 18th scale motor set up
2. dye chassis
3. Maybe this battary pack mod
4. custom roll cage
5. candy blue body and custom graphics
6. lipo set up. 4s maybe.
Nice! For me all it is is...Originally Posted by josh7owens
1. LiPo Setup (batteries and charger)
2. New Tires
IDK what else?
Don't do that crap if you plan on racing.. heavy batteries and big jumps and being nimble don't mix. I use to run 8k lipo's in my erevo racing, until I raced w/ a 5k pack... I'll never go back, and yes it makes that much of a difference. Keep in mind the more battery weight, the more damage will occur as well. If you just run speed passes up and down a street then no worries.. hack away
Plus one on that ...
