This thread is made to honour the memory of The great Airmaxx23 and Freez here at the Traxxas forum that is no longer with us. You are gods guys.
So here it is, my bash ERBE project . Oh god, it really took me time to get my butt on the chair and finaly post this project... but here we go!
First off iīm going to talk about what the purpose of this build is.
I wanted a truck, durable but with better handling then a maxxtruck or Savage, a truck that donīt have electrics for more money then a 1:1 sized car, a truck that could be ran any day, any time, no mather if itīs a sunny day, a rainy day or a day with snow. It should handle huge jumps like a kangaroo and hold up to those "anger" runs i do sometimes when you "just have to do that tripple backflip" no mather what it takes.
So this is what I did.
In november I bought a used ( but nearly brand new) brushed E-revo with a novak 4.5 system in it. It started to snow the second day after iīve got it so I had to waterproof it, this was done with hotglue, since itīs very hard to get plastidip or similar in Sweden from a swedish shop. The power cap on the novak ESC smoked after three or four runs, and then i was only able to do one more run without the powercap before the esc smoked . So I Bought this
Esc since i have VERY good experience with Himodels and their speed controls which i have been using in my previous Revo 2.5 converison, but this time it didnīt went so well......I recieved the esc, fast and good looking ( for being China ) and ordered plastidip from another country and plastidipped the esc, so far so good. I did mount everything up and programmed the esc without issues. I took him out and man I was dissapointed, He glitched like crazy, jumped from forward to reverse without any "restingtime" and the brakes was not progressive as I had programmed them, they were either ON or OFF which was very undriveable so I took the truck in, re programmed, checked every cable, Changed motor to a feigao 8XL, tried to move the esc as far away from the RX as possible but no luck... So the truck just sat at my Rc desk until January.
In January I ordered a mamba max esc, a towerhobbies 2.4Ghz radio and some spares. As soon as my package came i programmed the esc with the castle link, plastidipped it, binded the reciever to the remote, assembled everything on the truck and went outside YAAAY it was a BIG SMILE on my face.
