do not know how actuall this topic is, but I upgraded my E-Revo with the following setup:

S2848-4370 Brushless Inrunner (4370kv)


Turnigy TrackStar 1/10th Scale 60A Car ESC

My issue was that with 3s parallel setup the original motor has been limited in engine speed and the temperature from ESC was too high!

With this setup I reached higher speeds and cooler temps.

The motor is direct fit, so only replace it.
The ESC fit too, but I cut a bit of the body to fit perfect :)

Here a pic from that:

-> really higher speed
-> cooler temps (+25° outside and the ESC got only 45° after some loads)
-> smoother start than the original velineon. You think you drive with a sensored system
-> keep care of the diffs (I already destroyed 4-5). So shim the diff from the mini revo, loose the slipper a bit and probably add a center diff. (with center diff it is not as funny as without, but should be for diff care)

-> When you order this setup, you need the programming card from the ESC too. Without that you cannot change the low voltage.

-> Low voltage cut is for 3s on 9V (3V per cell), so I would recommend to add additional lipo saver or stop earlier. 3V/cell is too less.

-> not waterproof ;)

But in sum I'm satisfied with this setup and would buy it again.
If you have any questions let me/us know.
