I have a stock E revo in pretty new condition, and two Venom 5000 NiMH packs.
I'm was going to buy two 4S ***** lipo's and put them in parallel, and a 12V dewalt motor.
But I started wondering if the EVX2 could handle 5S lipo's.
A quick calculation:
Two 7 cell nimhs fully charged: 2 x 1,45V x 7 = 20,3V
Two 5s lipo's fully charged: 4,2V x 5 = 21V
Since it is recommended to use 7cell nimh packs with the EVX2, the EVX2 must be able to handle 20,3V. So 21V should be no problem!
Ofcourse this setup will draw quite a lot more current than stock, so my estimations are that the EVX2 will hold up, but will require a fan
Now, If I would be using 5s I'd better not use the 12V Dewalt, but the 14,4V or 18V Dewalt instead.
The 12V motor has been overvolted by many people here to 16,8V alot with no problems.
The 18V motor is overvoltable to 24V according to robotmarketplace.
So the 14,4V motor will probably be overvoltable to 19V or so.
* I was wondering what the best motor would be, The 14,4V Dewalt or the 18V Dewalt?
* Will these 5S1P 3000mah *****'s fit in the E revo compartiment?
The dimensions say it's 30mm thick, and the E revo bat compartiments are 29mm .
But someone in the comments says he's going to use / is using them in his E revo.
Has anyone of you tried them?
* And another question: Will the BEC in the EVX2 be able to convert 21V to 6V? Because I would be using two 5s lipo's...
