the way you said that i would think that Todd already got his REVO :confused:

*edit* oh yeah by the way pHREDD, you did a great job painting that body, but in a couple of the pics it looks like it is sitting too high in the front, and if/when i get my REVO i want the X-Citer body, of course i will custom paint it with my airbrush :D and it will be sweeeeeet, GUARANTEED! just too bad it will probably be scraped up from the use it will get, but thats part of the fun isnt it :D

Hey guys.... I know this is a little off topic but what do you guys think of a BL maxx or a Revo roller modded to a E revo. Im wondering could it work that would be pretty sick i figure. I know where i can get a revo roller for a steal. Just a project idea and wondering what you guys think about it.....
By the way wicked REVO pHredd.
~Later~

pHREDD
2005.05.24, 11:08 PM
Thanks Marty,

My question is why would you want to go to take the nitro revo to an electric motor? the nitro TRX 2.5R racing engine is wicked fast and doesnt slowly run down like batts do. it halls A$$ untill the tanks empty. It would be hard to make an electric keep up with nitro. it sounds like it would be more trouble than its worth.

How much for the revo roller?


Good Luck!!!

MartyJones
2005.05.24, 11:34 PM
I think you're right 180.00 plus 13.00 sumthin shipping for the roller. 225.00 with the motor. Might try to grab it anyway to have something to play with while im working on my Z's . I've havent played in nitro since my old rusty. Still ahve that rx/tx around somewhere. Might look into revo's look fun. That or build a crawler.....

pHREDD did you buy the E-maxx? ur crazy. and todd, which cars did you sell, let me guess, the 01 and the OL correct? after i did all that work on the 01 for free :confused: im just kidding, i do hope you got a good deal in them though

pHREDD

I got the e-maxx. just trying to help Todd out. Allan got the 01 and the OL. I also got my mini-t in the mail Monday.

Ninja
2005.05.25, 09:33 AM
thats great, you gonna go brushless in that Maxx? a good brushless setup in Maxx will run faster than a stock Revo in a drag. the Revo gets it off the line but the Maxx doesnt take long to catch it :D the only downside is, BATTERIES SUCK


oh by the way, how you liking that Mini T?

No, for now I will keep it stock. I sent the EVX into Traxxas today for repairs. they said it would range from $20 to $40 to fix. Not bad.





oh by the way, how you liking that Mini T?
Yeah its fun. Its a lot different than the mini-z.

Hey pHREDD did you get the Mini-T Pro? You going brushless in that T?

I plan on making a nice 1/18 scale off-road track in my backyard. Once I get it done I'll post some pics of it.

We should plan an all day get together on a Saturday and have some outdoor off-road fun! I could request off from work and be there.

I dont think its a pro...but than again i wouldnt know how to tell...it has a lot of hop up parts on it but I think its a stock motor. Im not sure what else i will do with it.

An all day back yard GTG would be cool, Im sure we can plan a day for it.

Yeah Brushless seems to be very popular with the 1/18th crowd. I plan on upgrading my 18T as soon as TEKIN releases their brushless system.
Also gonna add some alloy diffs and some other alloy parts.

The 4WD really helps with handling. I haven't done too much to my 18T yet.
I added MIP CVD's all around, steel turnbuckles, FT shocks, BAJA motor.
Plenty fast to have a good time. So far I really like the performance of the18T.

Just need about 4 more people with 1/18 cars to really start having fun!

I just ran my Evader outside with its new Trinity brushes and oversized motor capacitor. The damn thing still cooks whatever gets in with the motor and now the speed has slowed and the battery died sooner. Methinks the battery wasn't charged all the way up. Or the bigger motor cap makes it sad. I figured it would make the motor run cooler, right? :confused:

One of the 1500's (Ol' Tapey) is blown. The yellow wrap on the cells is splitting and it only stays charged for a few minutes. I was thinkin 100 bucks for your broke TC3 + batts + charger and I'll give ya my good 1500 and charger.

i was thinking more like 150 for the TC3, since the only thing wrong is the motor, which i may be able to repair, havent tried yet, i have too much money in it to let it go for less just b/c of a bad motor, and ill toss in the spare ESC

I will give him 250 right now.

Looks like everyone is getting into off-road. That's cool! Anyone got any plans on building a track?

I'm still working on my off-road track. Gonna have a load of dirt brought in because the dirt around my place is very rocky. Gonna use flexible plastic tubing to create the track barriers. It's going to have 4 - 5 ft lanes all the way around, banked turns and some jumps.

Maybe we could have a backyard GTG when I get done with the track? If you wanna drive down to GA.

Here's a pic of the primary design for the track. Done with MS Paint. WOW!

pHREDD
2005.06.03, 05:37 PM
Im sure we could come down to GA when you have your track ready.

2005.06.03, 08:21 PM
well i was just looking around, and discovered a great thing, i can get a Savage with a .28 engine for less than a REVO, the only problem is, there isnt any reverse, the reverse module can be purchased seperately for a mere $33, bringing the grand total of a Savage SS with Reverse module to $447, much cheaper, and faster than REVO :D

well according to the manual, you are supposed to tune the HSN first, then the LSN, then set the idle. but all thats hard to do when you can even get it to idle long enough to take off :confused: i have had to go back to factory break-in settings 3 times and start over :(

pHREDD
2005.06.23, 10:02 AM
getting it to idle isnt hard. just richen up the LSN....it will idle good. The pinch test will verify the LSN is close.

all three screws have to work together for it to run right. the manual settings are good guidlines to go buy but if they dont work you have to fing something that will.

cjtamu
2005.06.24, 11:15 AM
Ninja, if you're still having trouble, do this. Set the carb gap so it's 1 mm at fully closed (or idle). Then LEAVE IT ALONE! If you're at the factory settings, you'll then probably have to lean the bottom a little to get it to idle. Factory settings are usually way rich. Lean it about 1/8 turn at a time until it will idle, then leave it. Then start leaning the HSN until it runs right. After that, run the pinch test on your low end and adjust if needed, should take about 3 to 5 secs to die when pinched.

Ninja
2005.06.24, 12:10 PM
i think i got it set up now, i am gonna try it out a couple tanks later :D i got my body painted, it looks great :p

cjtamu
2005.06.24, 03:31 PM
Cool. Just remember what I said about the 1mm gap, because a lot of tuning issues begin there. Long explanation, but if the gap is too small you end up with an engine that's too lean on the bottom and if it's too large you end up with an engine that's too rich on the bottom. Start at about 1mm, and once it's tuned you can tweak the idle just a little if you need to.

Ninja

We don't even ask...we just sit back , watch, and laugh

Cool site. We had to shut down the mini-z track for the summer so we are taking a break for a while. We have gotten into the nitro 1/10 scale heavy. Its a blast. If only my MZM would do what my revo will....but it did cost 1/3 of the revo so really no complaints.

DBR, have you ever driven Holwrecker's or OvalQueen's Maxx trucks?

(silly question?)


DBR, is OvalQueen the same person on the traxxas forums site???

I would have a hard time making the trip to Rick's more than once a month I have kind of worked my schedule around thursdays is this going to be a permanent schedule or is it likely to change back later?

We went to a LSH where they had a dirt track behind the store. We didnt have a camera man so there is no action shots but Here is what we got.

The track had a little mud and we tried to avoid this area
