    Lights for MERV

    Hi all

    Now the dark nights are closing in, I'm thinking about putting some lights onto my MERV for back garden night time running.

    I forgot, here's a link to the battery I've spotted. There's a few UK places selling this one, a couple within driving range.

    I've found it with XT90 connectors already connected, I'm...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm starting to think I'm over complicating this.
    I've had RC cars for over 20 years, just never spent anything like Xmaxx money on one. Even my erevo was a V1 with brushed...

    Actually, there's another question I've not quite picked up on yet...

    I see most running running 6000 to 7000mAh batteries.
    You can pick up 2 sets of 5000mAh batts for the same price as those,...

    So I think I've decided on Gens Ace. They seem to be a reasonable price & are readily available in sorts of sizes.

    Next question...
    Should I be using Hard Case batts? I've always had them for my...

    I've no method of checking the ESC. I'm just guessing its shutting down because of heat.

    Although, what's the low voltage set to on these for lipo? I wonder if my battery is collapsing as it gets...

    Gearing is stock, I can't remember what it is now other than I had to buy a 50t spur when converting from a Ken Block into the MERV.
    The wheels are FastTrax somethings.... a bit bigger than stock,...

    That ESC fan looks great!
    How does your fan attach to the ESC & what have you plugged it into? Just a spare channel on the receiver?
    Looks like a fix that may help my current problems.

    Oh man, this thread makes me sad.:(

    I'm just putting together a list of "Must have items" for when I get an X-Maxx & the 2085X servo was in the top 3! Starting to wonder if I should be looking at...

    My mate has 3 boys all of different ages from very young to teenage brat.
    They have a fleet of Stampedes between them all & they are perfect for general bashing. I can't think of a better first RC.

    Motor Temps & Traxxas Link App

    Hi all

    So I'm still loving my newly built MERV, but I'm having issues with motor temps. I've tried the search function & not been able to find the answers I need.

    The only indication I have for...

    👍🏻
    I found them cheap from a UK place I've used in the past. Just interested in how they perform.

    Thanks for the link.
    Can you please report back how you get on with those? They are available form a UK supplier.

    Cheers

    Yeah, sorry, I should have said...
    Didn't look at physical size of those at all, just voltage, capacity and cost.

    Gens Ace seem get good reviews and are readily available in the UK. I think the...

    You see, that's what I expected everyone to say. Now I'm really confused.

    Oddly enough, one of the UK retailers I use a lot has also said most people use the Traxxas batteries.
    I'm surprised to be honest.
  21. UK battery supplier & battery suggestions for 8S X-Maxx

    Hi guys

    I think I've decided on getting an X-Maxx, but I'm just thinking over a few costs.
    Batteries come under that category at the top of the list!

    Pretty much I need help deciding on what...

    Thanks for the thoughts.
    I'm a bit surprised by the love the xmaxx gets in the revo area.
    Maybe that says a lot in itself.

    That's a really helpful post. Thank you.

    I'm hoping a mate is interested in my erevo now. His kids all have traxxas trucks so he is after one for himself. My old truck is perfect for his needs. It...

    I think the last half hour looking in to that a bit more has made me realise that it's just not worth it. If I already had a bigger motor and ESC, it might be worth thinking about a conversion, but...

    Thanks for the reply.

    I should have said, the current motor/ESC is an old HV-Maxx, it's at least 15 years old! Clearly I'll need to swap that out! Lol
    There can't be many parts to transfer if...
