    I can't believe that they don't have the normal page up yet. I know they have the parts lists done because they are included with the e-revos, so why don't they put it up so everyone can see it already.

    Looks like your the first one on the forum to post pics. It looks AWESOME!!! Do you think you could post a few body off pics when your camera battery gets charged?

    What are your plans for it?

    Well brushlessman...looks like birdy233 is the first one in America to have it!

    LOL...I'm so proud of myself that I'm the one that broke the news that the ERevos were here! Now, I'd be MUCH happier if mine had shipped!! But being from California and the fact that mine has to come out of Reno Tower warehouse (which didn't get any yet!) I can only wait some more!

    Hey, has anyone in California picked one up or had their Tower order ship??

    Let us know how long you think the leads need to be. I talked to MaxAmps today about this and they said you can request whatever length of lead you need and they'll make the pack that way. ALSO, be sure to tell them it's for an ERevo and they will have one pack with the lead coming from one corner and the other lead coming from the opposite corner.

    I'm planning on using a y-harness in series so that should add to the length of the leads to a MMM, but if you could estimate for us how long that right side needs to be that would be great!!!

    Well I just called tower, they tried to charge my card and it declined I didnt expect it to come out till after friday. So I gave them a diffrent card number, I asked the rep to change the color to the blue but I was told thats the only one they have instock and that it should ship Friday or Monday. After hanging up I check the order history section on the site and it said INVOICED, TOWER HOBBIES IS AWAITING PRODUCT FROM MANUFACTURER. I guess tower got confirmation from traxxas that the trucks are on there way out the door like SNEAKY PETE herd from the traxxas rep. wow, Im so happy, my slash suppost to be here friday and e-revo next week !!!!

    I already had my lipos for my brushless Losi 8, but you need them to be around 4 inches. (At least for the right side, left side, not a problem with a normal lead).


    Anyways,

    So I'm no great vid guy but you get the point. This is with a pair of Maxx Amps 5000HV Lipos, not fully charged, but close...brushless going in....

    So, from the pack to the plug should be 4". Now, is that while using a Y harness or just both packs going to the speed control? If you use a Y harness, does the right still need to be 4"?

    That's from the pack to the ESC, no Y harness, you could go 4.5 to 5 inches inches for the right side to give a bit more room actually.

    Well, even though I probably ordered from Tower before you guys (maybe) on April 25th, I'm still waiting for mine to ship! It would seem that the Reno warehouse for Tower didn't get any today and because they will only ship mine from that location since I'm in California I have to wait....sigh.
