    on the e revo 2.0 model presentation site it says under "esc specs" that the bec voltage is set at 6V and a current of 10A (peak 20A).

    That is correct. The BEC amperage has been beefed up for the VXL-6s.

    So if I am wanting to run a HV servo (7.4v) will this run it or doo I still need a external BEC?

    A 10a CC bec is all you need. I run 2 HV servos off one of them and have not issues using them at 7.4vdc.

    The receiver on their is only rated for 6v safely. I asked Traxxas support and it's what they told me. I have been wanting to utilize the 7.4v on my servos but won't because of that issue/limit. A receiver bypass adapter and the Bec is needed with a Traxxas receiver.
    Happy fun

    It depends on the servo. They aren't all the same. You should be able to read in the specs of whatever your looking at for the stall current. You want the bare minimum to be a few amps over whatever that is so your not maxing out the BEC constantly. I know some of the savox servos pull over 9 Amps (SB2290SG being one) when run at 7.4V, so while a 10A BEC is enough... more would probably last longer.

    Hi Guys, just wanted to know if it is possible for me to use two of Blue Bird BLS-H50B in the E-Revo without using a piggy back bec? BLS-H50B has a minimum rating at 6v. By the way, when you say the esc has a peak rating at 20amp, does it mean for scenarios when there is a sudden loaded movement or burst action?

    Why in the world would you run two of those? One is going to easily overpower even the HD servo saver spring. At 6V it's putting out 620oz-in!
