Default E-Maxx with XO-1 electronics with telemetry

I decided to donate one of my XO-1s organs for a transplant to my E-Maxx and it's alive . Have driven it quite a few times and runs great
Here are some pics

Looks good, I love those 1717 motors, they're beasts! Little advice, rotate the motor 90 degrees so the motor wires aren't pointing up, less likely to get damaged. Also, motor wires do look a little stretched and looks like plugging them into the esc in a different order will help that. If motor turns wrong way after do so, use the Castle Link to reverse the motor rotation and get it going the right way again.

Thanks I will try that because I did flip during testing one day and it slid on the motor wire but it just scratched the castle name off one. Close call

I don't know but I be mashing the e-revo brushless edition. At like half throttle it can hit around 60 then the tires can't take anymore speed.
But it's ridiculous and runs really cool. I love it

It bumps the shocks in the revo and summit that's why I chose the emaxx. I am pretty sure it's a way but the motor would have to sit higher

I put a 1520 in my erevo, had the double motor mount and put the motor up front. It really messed up the handling of the truck though. I also had a very close call with my motor wires in that truck and I'll never point them up again. Kershaw has a mount kit for the revo that raises the motor so you can fit long motors like the 1717, 1520 and such but its kinda ugly and I don't like the quality of his stuff. I was going to make a new motor plate that raises the stock mount up a bit, but I had grown tired of the truck and just sold it. My LST handles the power of my 1717 alot better anyway.
