    Exclamation E-REVO Brushed - Sell or Upgrade?!

    Hello, 1 year ago i bought a E-REVO Brushed Edition because i didn't had enough money for the Brushless and still wanted E-REVO fun.

    But my question is: What would be the best?:

    1. Sell my E-REVO Brushed and buy a RTR Brushless with the MXL-6S combo.
    2. Keep my E-REVO and buy all the parts separately.



    Thanks in advance, Renzo

    Welcome to the forumn and this great hobby of ours.

    The erevo brushed version is brushless ready.

    All you need to replace are the esc and a brushless motor, single motor mount (5690x) if you want to go that route but not needed as the other will work, 17mm hex (5353x) as the brushed would have come with 14mm hex and new 17mm wheels otherwise just use the old ones for now..

    With all that your truck is brushless, than later you could put a sway bar, standard for the two .

    If it were me, and as I did in the beginning, I would buy the parts and upgrade. You can find some good deals online for the brushless motors/ESC's.

    hey there

    I just did the upgrade thing today, my only problem is I want to run 1 4s battery. but besides that, this is the same situation as you. I did the upgrade path.

    got a hobbywing sc8 esc (like 75$)
    got a Kershaw designs 2700, realistically any generic 2200-3400kv big can motor, will be fine. 20-40$
    got a 4s 5000mah lipo for 50$ or 2/100$
    total of: 200$

    I didn't change or buy anything to make the setup, used the double motor mount+dust cover and taped the extra hole. sc8 came with a bracket that fit the same hole pattern as the evx-2 esc.

    if your using the 2s/3s that fit in the bay, you will be even better off. and your setup will be cleaner.



    took about 2 hours, as I dusted/cleaned the little nooks and crannys while I had the engine out.

    hope this helps you make a decision

    post-edit: the esc I'm using is 4s capable max, when I recommended 2s/3s I figuring your getting a 6s esc. (I was cool with 4s)

    you could buy the brushless one complete and keep the old for parts.
    crashing at brushless speeds tends to break things :-)

    I picked up a mamba monster 2/2200kv kit off tower hobby for $175 new. That was with the discount code sense it was $199, a set of batteries & a motor plate. One big pack one this chassis I would say it would make it really tip heav. It has a low Center of gravity for a reason. U can fine packs out there for pretty good prices if u look especially right know. Besides if u had the cash to get another e revo I don't think u would be asking how to convert yours to brushless lol imo. 😊

    I'm actually in the same boat. I think I'm going to do the conversion kit!

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.
