Default My Mini Revo

*Copied from BYT*


Got it today though my LHS charged $300 I brought in Stormerhobbies' price and got it for $275 from my LHS. They must like me :P. But anyway also walked out with a Tenergy battery combo pack but I didn't walk out with a series connector, they didn't have any. So they are gonna make their own and give um away or charge a dollar or two. But first impressions, this thing is fast. Tried it out front of my Poppi's house(grandpa) and its sure fun. Ran 3 packs like that. Wheelies on command, got some dirt in the front bumper so ran through a puddle a few times to wash it off. Man is this fun, did some stoppies, tons of wheelies, and ended up on its lid multiple times. Video should be up in a few hours though I didn't have a camera person and it almost got ran over by my friend's mom haha so the camera got put in the grass! But anyway a size comparison to my MLST2 if anyone wants to see more size comparisons like to my Slash, Nitro Pede, anything.. Feel free to ask. All the pictures were taken right before the 4th and 5th runs in front of my house or in my room. The indoor pictures may be bad or shaky because of bad lighting and i forgot to put on dual image stabilization. Enjoy!

Speed wise out of the box easily it out runs MLST2 and how it handles, about equal. Should have the video up soon. Uploading right now. So far after that tranny broke in, it flies and wheelies on demand, I'll have to get another video tomorrow. Oh and the servo, it isn't garbage they are very tough unlike the ones in the Losi MLST series trucks

I underrstand that but theres numerous threads of this and also a Official Mini-Revo thread, That where I think it should be posted.

Any idea if the mini E-Revo servos can fit the MLST2?
