From Tekno RC:

The Tekno RC Brushless Conversion for the Traxxas REVO 2.5 and 3.3 has arrived! The REVO was already the best racing/bashing MT ever made – and it just got better!

Our brushless conversion kit was designed around performance and reliability. We have been testing this design over the past year and the results have been simply amazing. Easily keep up with truggies and literally blow away any MT on the race track. Race run times of 15+ minutes means you can participate in most club’s nitro main events. Bash times may vary, but we routinely get over 20 minutes of bash time on a single charge. Your mileage may vary depending on motor, battery, and ESC used.

Benefits – faster acceleration, higher top speed, predictable performance from pack to pack – no matter what the weather is, no engine tuning, no break-in, no air filter cleaning, no after-run maintenance, no oily mess, less pit gear required, fewer batteries to charge (no starter box battery, no RX battery, no glow igniter battery), no engine rebuilding or new pistons and sleeves, happier neighbors, far less upkeep and operating expenses after initial investment.

  • Direct Bolt-On – no additional mods necessary. Everything you need to convert your REVO chassis is included (motor , ESC and battery not included). Compatible with Vantage Racing line of chassis.
  • This kit has been designed to work with a ‘box stock’ REVO. Meaning, you can run reverse, 2 steering servos and any non-nitro-specific hop-ups – such as our new Sway Bar Kit for REVO.
  • Patent pending Elektri-Clutch clutch bell adapter – uses any existing nitro clutch and clutch bell so you can tune the massive power delivery of current brushless motors the same way you would tune a clutch for a nitro engine. This means no cogging, superior predictable traction compared to other ‘direct drive’ electric conversions. No ‘mod 1′ pinions to buy. 5mm motor shaft is required. Stay tuned for Tekno RC’s line of brushless motors.
  • Uses stock Revo transmission, compatible with any ratio, center differential kit, rear brake kit, use the 2 speed or dial out 1st gear if you like (just loosen the shift point). Keep reverse if you want or take it out. We recommend using Robinson Racing steel transmission gears for ultimate durability.
  • Uses stock mechanical brakes so you can tune front/rear brake bias if using the center differential kit. This results in much more predictable braking and less heat generation compared to using ‘motor braking’, not to mention it will save your transmission from unneeded stress.
  • 7075 CNC machined motor mounting system accommodates motors up to 44mm in diameter and 74mm in length. Use motors with 2, 4, or 6 mounting holes. Adjust gear mesh just like a nitro REVO.
  • 6061 CNC machined ESC tray centrally mounts your ESC in direct flow of incoming air. Shift point adjustments are still made easily by removing one screw and rotating the ESC out of the way temporarily.
  • Injection molded battery tray will accommodate 2 standard stick packs, A123 batteries (2x2x2 config), or giant 3s and 4s LiPo batteries. Take your pick. We recommend MaxAmps 3s/8000mah and 4s/6000mah packs.
  • Tekno RC RX B for REVO included.
  • Tekno RC Throttle Servo Mount for REVO included.
  • Add it up and compare, this is a great value!

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.
