    How do I run a second EVX2 with a dual motor setup.

    I recsently bought a KD dual 820 motor kit and I haven't run it yet. Because I have the feeling that at 4s on a single evx2 is going to put a lot of load on the evx2 yet the motors will be still under powered. My plan is to install a second evx2. How do I do this.
    This is my first hobby grade rc build and I can tell iam loving it.

    Thanks but I already have one I got of of eBay. I'm just still trying t figure out how to run both so I can give each dewalt 820 5s of power. I think 10s should make me a nice monster truck. If anyone has a link to a wiring diagram that would be great.

    u should save yourself all that work and nonsense and just get a brushless system. It will look like **** with all wiring and added electronics. Just keep it simple and besides for all the work ur trying to do ur gonna get negligable return....

    I already have a summit with a tekin Rx8 g2+ T8 g2 2650kV and before that a mmm2
    I have had plans to build this dual motor dual esc rig for a while. My plan is to make kind of. Summit wheelie king monster truck. I have moved a fair bit of weight to the back to give it a better balance for massive long wheelies. This is kind of a side project and I want to make something different. This is my third summit. But it is my first from scrap build.

    Also this one is gonna spend most of its life jumping into the swamp / dam and mudding brushless never hold up long under water run after run with minimal cleaning and experimenting is fun.

    And as for wiring mess it don't matter it's all gonna be run under the body. It's not seen. I hooked it up with custom lights bar and under body neons powered from 2 seperate rx 6v packs. All under the body it of sight.

    Just like that/\.

    But with 2 esc's your going to have to disconnect one of the esc's bec ...I believe its the black wire.

    Also wouldn't using the mmm2 ESC be better? Since you have one. Also the motors can then be hooked in series and parallel

    That would be handy but my mmm system is going in a slash. The slash is a monster that is being transformed into a drag car ((my next project.) thanes for the advice guys I have it working but am still waiting on my slipper clutch when it's running I will post a vid and some pictures. Next mod planned is lem diff kit and a functional body scoop to pass fresh air over the motors and to stop the air being trapped I'll add a 2 body vents in the rear from oocrcracing.

    Yes I under stand perfectly. Yes that is one advantage I really needed as I live in a very very hilly area with lots of steep rock piles. Have you tried running the 2 kershaw dewalt at 10s total (5s per dewalt motor)?
