    V-Twin E-Revo off-road video and toughts.

    There is already a lot of info about this system (thank you guys), so I`m not gonna write too much because my english is not that good, but will be happy to answer if someone need to know something.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7GMPVJOA-Q

    So far:

    Pros
    -great torque
    -great top speed
    -reliable (well synchronized, using unslow, just one red wire to receiver, fans)
    -looks good

    Cons
    -weight
    -price
    -wheelies (I like wheelies, but all the time...) May be a center diff helps
    -too much wires

    Really need some free time to try someday a single vxl on esavy tires and just one batt geared 18/68 to see how it performs. Also the truck need to loose some weight.

    Hope this helps someone to figure out how it performs off-road, I`ve not found much v-twin off-road videos on yt. I`m using this system because already have one Velineon from my Rustler and have other "to sell" on hand, just can`t resist.

    Overall I`m happy but if you don`t already have one or two VXL and don`t really need insane torque go for a single big motor system IMO.

    Holy cow! nice vid, lots of crashes and not a thing broke . That thing is a tank man! You should upload some pictures of the v twins in your truck . Now i really dont know what to buy lol. I'm sitting with stock trying to decide if i want duel 970's or the velineon system. Which do you reccomend and WHAT BATTERIES ARE YOU USING?

    Hi, Im using stock radio, sorry if I confused you. Im saying that is uncontrollable because the lack of steering when it wheelie and because you have to be very gently with acceleration to not flip. But is very good to know about this glitch buster, good tip. Thank you and sorry about my english.

    The batteries Im using are *****-R 3s 4800.

    And here are some pictures:

    Your english is fine . Thanks for the pics man, good god you werent kidding in the cons section that theres a lot of wires and stuff. Are you running 1 battery to each esc or how you doing it? Again that vid is nuts lol. Any idea what speeds you are hitting with it?

    in my opinion the v-twin setup is far too much of a hassle. my e-revo is running 7 cell nimh and a novak hvmaxx 6.5. i am running the original style. in other words i dont hav ethe 5mm upgrade. and dont plan to until the motor breaks. oh and the truck has alot of power.

    hi, like your e-revo. I just started setting up my v-twin, the extra wires for the twin set up is pretty bad. How are you powering your fans for the motors? Have set up a seperate power suppy for it?

    Thanks, if you have 12v fans and 3s lipos you should connect them to your unslow adaptor, also put a switch if you want.

    So wait a minute, since one motor has to rotate one way, and the other has to rotate the other way, you can't just install a V-Twin like normal right? I had a V-Twin Emaxx and it was easy to setup because the motors rotate the same way. What about this? Anything special that needs to be done?
