    Fastest E-Revo... CHALLENGE!

    I propose a challenge to all E-Revo owners. Whoever can get the highest top speed, GPS, or Radar/LiDar verified, on video, will receive a special virtual trophy and bragging rights for life. The challenge will begin now, and end on January 30th. If we can keep this thread going, the contest will continue until Jan. 30th, but is the thread dies, The contest will die too. This should get very interesting....

    Also, you are welcome to post videos and speeds of previous events. I do professional wildlife photography, and graphic design for a living, so you should know that this virtual trophy will ROCK!

    Now get speedin'!

    I'll start it off with 51.6 mph. 23/54 gearing. HPI Phatline tires. *****-H 3s 5000 lipo's in series. CC/MMM 2200 Combo.

    The E-Revo with the CC/MMM 2200 Combo is much faster than 51.6 mph, it just a matter of keeping the front end from lifting at 50+ mph.

    I also do professional wildlife photography, and I can attest to the correlation between good picture taking skills and the ability to make excellent virtual trophies. It will be a fine virtual trophy indeed.

    http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=_obJSg2SIDU I've broke 56,but no pics.It really does get front end light around 50.But I'm pretty sure I'm good for over 60,with the right place to drive.BTW IMO anything under 65 should not receive any honors,70 is where we need to be aiming.

    It really looks faster when you are at that fast of a speed. A rustler doing 50 and an E-Revo doing 50 are two totally different things.

    I used to think that the Erevo would be cake above 50compared to my Rustler,but you're right,they aren't.But they are still totally different animals to try to tame.

    So... 56 MPH is currently the fastest record we have in this thread.

    Anyone wanna beat that?

    I would try to beat it myself, but up here in the NorthWest we got snow up at high as 8 inches.

    I might be able to get up to 45 on ice, but I might not be able to stop...

    Well dock, once all of that melts you may be able to take 'em. Don't you have a previous try that was faster than these guys? Anybody ever get above 60?

    I think I have a way to help stumlin out. Or any one else for that matter. Since it takes a while to get the E-Revo to top speed, get a buddy to drive you car, while you drive the Revo next to it, with the GPS on of course. This would give you the ability to keep it in sight and range and get verified GPS speed. This way, if your like stumblin in the video above, always running out of sight, you can get the extra distance that you need.

    Oh, and by the way, 61.7 is really fast.
    I don't have a witty signature.

    61.7 MPH. You hear that wind in the video? That wind could be some resistance. He might go faster on a more peaceful day.

    I've never clocked my speed for my MMM combo system yet, I'll post when the sun decides to come out.

    I haven't even ran them on a full pack of batteries.

    Is this a record for any converted revo or just the e-revo with the limited battery space?

    On 8S it can be possible for the 70, may be 75 if the tires hold.
    Had hard time finding tires that stayed glued on the rims with my nitro revo in the 65mph area. (max i got is 66mph full trim with rear wing on 30% nitro)

    Even 70 would be VERY good! with the 8S it should be possible, what tires you will run guys?

    8s?! What kind of setup is that? More importantly, what kind of ESC is he running?

    Thx filmmaker !

    Didnt wanted to post it at first because of the e-revo section, and didnt wanted to start anything bad, i am very curious to see the top speed of the e-revo setup

    Heres the video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaYVF5I2oIE

    It sluggish on the low end because i had a leak at the carb..had to run richer to compensate the small leak... fixed now

    hey brushless man, is there a little water pump on there too?

    he should make a little intercooler instead of a water reservoir, that would be sick

    I got up to 57.2 mph.

    More details here.

    http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=450017

    64 mph seems possible, not sure about 70 though. When I fooled around with the speed calculator, the fastest combo that I've found was 25/54 gearing which gives you 64 mph.

    YEAH!!! Someone's gonna break 60 MPH pretty soon! I can;t do anything... we got a lot of snow here... Drove to a town called Langley. 16" of snow.

    Man I tried driving my E-Revo in the snow... it just sunk in the snow because of it's heavy weight, and the all four tires just spun without going anywhere.

    I've got a plan to make my e-revo go 60mph+ but it requires me to not live somewhere so cold right now.

    It would spin its tires real quick on the ice

    I always dreamed of strapping model rocket engines to the rear a arms of my E-Revo... and remote ignition from my controller...

    Not sure if that would count though.
