Default OFFICIAL MINI E-REVO THREAD!!!



Ok well many of you are going to be getting them soon. So i thought i would start a thread. I know there was a theada while back, but i couldnt find it. I wentback as far as the 37 page. Anywaysi ordered mine from horizon so i should have mine next week somtime. But for all of you who might get them before hand, talk about them and tell us how you like them. I personally want to know how they handle, how they jump, andhow fast they go stock withone battery and then with both ni-mh`s. And when i get mine, i will tell you the advantages and disadvantages.

Mine should be here Monday , I have a feeling these are gonna be huge ! From the videos so far it seems too be an exact replica of the 1/10 E REVO which everybody knows is a great truck .

I am just hoping that they get the parts support going quickly .

Where are you at in IL ? I have a backyard track that is decent for 1/8 trucks but is awesome for the smaller scales , I live in Genoa , its a small town just north of DeKalb .

I am always looking for people too run with , the only rule is if youre under 18 you need a parent to come with .

There is also a track for electric R/C's in Marengo , a town just west of Huntly IL , they hold Slash races there .

Ok thanks for the invite. I am under 18, and i can`t drive. But me and my dad might be able to come sometime this summer. He is also into the hobby. He just like helicopters and airplanes more. But he does have a few rc cars/trucks. We live in town so our backyard is obvisouly too small for a track, and the city would not allow it. I have quite a few cars and trucks. I was really close to buying a slash, but when i heard about the mini e-revo i decided to hold off so i can save up for that instead. I have an savage x, a hopped up vendetta, a mini lst2 (which i am getting ready to sell), a micro desert and a micro raminator (i want to sell the raminator as well), and last but not least i have a associated 1/10 10t.

The mini revo is $300 and the mini slash is $290. KRO i just did a search on map quest and it said it would take us 4 hours and 25 minutes to get there. And as you probobly know that is just too far to go [].

Ya same with me. I mean there was a small track like 15 minutes away, but they closed it. That was like 3-4 years ago.

I just ran my mini e-revo for the first time-UNBELIEVABLE-coolest thing ever. I ran it straight from the box and was amazed-smiled ear to ear. FAST FAST cuts across grass great. I bought the extra battery for the extra speed and I have no idea how it will even be controlable. Coolest RC I own out of six.

stock gears out of box are 28t pinoin 50 spur......Thats for one battery when you go to two batteries you are to change the pinion to the optional one,it's a 23t pinion...comes in the box..I guess the 28 would be way too much with 14.4v....would be cool to do one speed pass with the stock pinion and two bats. would break 60mph i would think.
