Hello,

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

S2848-4370 Brushless Inrunner (4370kv)
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=15188

+

Turnigy TrackStar 1/10th Scale 60A Car ESC
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=14634

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:




Pros:
-> 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
Neg:
-> 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.

BR
