I've had my brushless e revo for about 6 months now and have loved every minute of it. This truck keeps impressing me with its speed, power, handling and durability. Every time something breaks its just an excuse to get stuck in and pull it all apart (and upgrade!). Great stuff. Piecing a video together of it at the moment.
Im new to posting but certainly not new to the site. I have found it a wealth of knowledge so far answering many questions Ive had. However now is the time for me to ask a range of questions that I have not found answers to. Any help would be much appreciated.
1) I would like to increase the trucks turning radius a little more but all links to the Slayden steering mod dont seem to work. I have already installed the included steering stop. Will adding longer steering arms give me the extra throw wanted? If so, a part number for a set would be great!
2) I will be installing some 12v led lights on the truck. What is the best way of powering them? I run both 2s and 3s. Was thinking that when running the 2s lipos I could plug both lipos into the light system via their balance leads. This would give more than 12v but have read that the led's can handle it. Will having the balance ports of each bat connected cause any problem with the batteries themselves?
When running 3s was thinking of plugging the led lights into one of the lipos balance ports. Would the led's draw enough to create an imbalance between the lipos?
Im open to any suggestions on this one..
3) Would it be ok to run a ******** 2s 5000mah 35C lipo in series with a ***** 3s 5000mah 40C lipo? I know they are not exactly the same, but they are what I have. My LVC is set to 3.5v and the voltage per cells by the time I get them to my charger are always around 3.79v.
Thats all for now, thanks again in advance for any help!
