Long time listener, first time caller.
I bought a new E-revo a week or so ago. Its all about the beach for me, with streams and salt water and sand, so a brushless setup is pretty much out of the question as long as I cant hose it off.
I ordered the correct part number from Sears for the 12v Dewalt. I'm currently running a pair of 4.6Ah 8.4v batts, and I hope the Dewalt won't kill the run time. If it will, I'll have to go to the SPC 9Ah Lipos with all the headaches Lipos create.
As for installation, I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I've got a few questions so that I dont get half way through and find I'm delayed.
1. Pinion gears: What is the stock spur gear? When I buy a new pinion, do I get the "mod .8" with a 5mm shaft? I'm assuming a 20t will be ideal for now.
2. Motor mounts: Is the traxas single motor plate a cleaner install than taking out the two Titans and mounting the Dewalt in the back?
3. What size capacitors are best for the anti-glitching trio?
4. Am I significantly reducing my run time from the pair of Titans?
Thanks guys... this mod is truly putting the "hobby" back in RC cars for me.
