    3905 Count...How many V-Twins or Brushless Already?

    I am just curious to see how many of the 3905 EMaxx has been converted to the V-Twin or have a single brushless motor already installed. I am amazed (not surprised) with with the fact that so many people have so quickly converted their 3905 to some form of brushless. It just shows me (again) how many people wanted this bad-boy to be brushless from the get-go!

    Please just post if you have a V-Twin, or single motor brushless set-up, and let's get a count going. No flame-wars please; just a count. I would use some sort of pole, but there isn't that capability on this forum.

    Thanks!

    Multiple singles.....but not more than one at a time. I never wanted Traxxas to make a brushless RTR though. I just wanted the option to buy the truck without esc, motors, and radio equipment. Bet they would really sale a lot that way.

    As far as I know, that bad-boy is driven! I could be wrong, but I think he drives that, and it is no shelf queen! UNSLOW, you out there?

    Simple, he dont crash! I think he bent a front skid once, and a UE outdrive cup, but that is about it. A Ti front skid is a life saver, hence why I have one just in case the worst happens...

    I need to get pictures of both of my E-'s. The newest setup is not installed yet. I swapped the V-twins over to my 3906 and now adding a new setup to the 3905 which is in the sig. Will get pics as soon as I can.

    Similar start for both of us, and a likely single brushless system for us too Mamba/8XL system made famous by the infamous Stumblin.... lol

    TDC57: got a question for you. How do those Velineons run with that truck? I know those are put in a smaller and lighter truck. Having 2 of them would help the push the bigger truck but is is better? I am thiniking on doing this but i only have NiMh DTX 4200 7 cell bats. The question also would it run faster than the stock set up? I have replaced all drive shafts with Traxxas CVD's. it looks great but would it be worth the effort to build it?

    It's not a 3905 E-Maxx (or strictly an E-Maxx at all, as the only stock parts are the transmission case, motor plate, bumpers & body mounts ), but I used to run this Feigao 9L/BK 9918 single BL setup.



    I say 'used to', as I'm only just getting back into RC having been out of the scene for about 18 months. That particular truck has been sat disassembled in a box for months (I will rebuild it though), the brushless setup was sold, and I'm currently looking for a suitable system to put in my latest brushless project...
