    Thinking of buying an E-Revo Brushless

    So as the title says.. I'm thinking of getting a Brushless E-Revo.


    My reasons behind this are:

    - I got over my GV Nitro road car, the constant tinkering and tuning just loses its fun after a while lol.. }

    - Being able to drive off-road is so much more convenient.

    - I can get readily available traxxas spare parts at my local hobby shop.

    - From what I've read the Brushless E-Revo is one of the better out of the box kits that you can get.


    I do have a few questions though..

    - The Mamba motor on the Brushless E-Revo isn't water resistant and from the RC Nightmare un-boxing video I watched onYouTube stated that it really didn't like water. Has anyone had any major issues with this?

    - I was looking at the Traxxas Velineon Power system (Velineon 3500 & VXL 3s ESC) which is "waterproof" how does the performance of the Velineon compare to the Mamba Monster?

    - Also, is the E-Revo my best option? I'll mostly be driving it in the field next to my house and at the local BMX track when its open for RC cars.


    The other options I've considered are:

    - The Traxxas E-Maxx Brushless
    - HPI Savage Flux HP


    Thanks for reading my wall of text!


    Cheers,
    Kris.

    ive tried both the 1/10 e-revo and e-maxx. being more of a basher and speed runner, the e-revo seemed easier to control for the wild speed-runs and jumps, also it was noticeably faster but it all depends on what you like to do. i dont race so i chose to buy the smaller 1/16 e-revo because it was a convenient size. most brushless motors are water-resistant/waterproof the thing you have to make sure of is the esc and batteries. hope this answers at least one of your questions.

    Thanks for your reply, after reading these forums and watching a heap of YouTube videos, I'm pretty much sold on the 1/8 Brushless E-Revo seems to be the best car for what I plan on doing (bashing and a bit of racing)

    out of the box they're great, you might be reluctant to upgrade like me and just wait for things to break. the only thing i think really needs an upgrade out of the box are the batteries and tires, if you upgrade the batteries first the stock tires WILL break. happened to both my uncles e-revo lol.
