Ok, so horizon`s got them in stock! So i think i might get it tomorrow. Today i order a few things off of ebay. I got the extra power cell battery, series connector, and a male and female ends for the charger. I herd it takes 6 hours for one battery on the stock charger, i don`t think so!

Well just hope that horizon doesn't do to you what Tower did to me. I thought i had a Revo coming but when I opened the box, it was a Slash. I had to mail it back and have been waiting for my Revo ever since. They said that it would be shipping but I am still waiting...

I broke my front bumber/body mount with a full 3s speed into a 6x6 (missed the ramp) And there is no buy it nows on ebay. Why cant companies make the parts avalable when the trucks are released so they dont hav ecustemer waiting a month(sometimes more) to get parts. This sucks

Does the E-revo come with some sort of fail-safe or would we have to buy one? Anyone have for it...is it needed for this application?

What would be the best, cheapest heatsink out there for this thing?

I was just looking at the stuff I had and I was wondering if it would be ok to charge TWO batteries at once through the y-harness? Take the y-harness off the truck, connect it to the molex adapter, and hook both batteries to the charger. Would that be safe? If so, then what amp should I charge them at?

You are asking for serious trouble when charging the batteries using a Y-harness. The batteries will not charge correctly if you do it that away. It is best to charge them seperately. I charge my mini packs at 1-1.5 amps anything higher will shorten the life of the battery.
