guys,

i need some help.
a guy in our locality is offering a traxxas 1/16 e-revo vxl brushles.. brought from US a year ago.
along with the car he is offering a traxxas 2.4ghz controller, series and parallel battery connecting pins.
a fast charger and a battery the car handles ok i did a short run.
the rear tyre appears to be bent inside a little.
the battery is nimh and not lipo
the car has a Velineon brushless motor with ez5 ESC all from traxxas.

This car is listed for 20000 on traxxas.in
and for $314.99 on official traxxas US website.
here is the link.
http://traxxas.com/products/models/electric/7107erevo116

he is offering for 15k (a bit nego.)
is this a wise deal.
please help as i need to close this deal quickly.

Can you name the ESC again? Does it say VXL-3M? There's no brushless ESC called an EZ5 and Traxxas definitely doesn't make one of those.

A few pictures will help a lot with the decision.

As a beginner, you can check for the below items:
- Make sure that no part is fixed back with hot glue or epoxy. Specially the arms
- Also check if the gear tooth are not scraped off or at the point of going flat
- If possible, ask the guy to charge the battery full and run the car till the battery drains and note how long did it take to drain the battery
- Like other posts suggested, check the tires are not worn out completely (can be replaced immediately though)
- The chassis of the car is not damaged or bent

And other than that, 10k is a good deal....

I strongly suggest buying a replacement mini servo. The Traxxas 2075 servo is notorious for dying out. Which tires are they and how much tread do they have on them?

You're good to go. Just a few pictures and I think you can seal the deal.

sir, e-revo has the Waterproof Digital Micro 2080 servo and not 2075.
here is the direct link
http://traxxas.com/products/parts/servos/2080

and i dont know exactly which is the replacement servo the guy has put up  Bang Head though the size,color and dimensions appeared to be exactly the same. Head Scratching
i was not able to see the part number or the name.

My bad. The 1/10 vehicles come with a 2075. I meant the 2080 itself.

Gorkha tech



the 2080 is a decent servo . i used it in my 16th scale mini slash for almost 2 years now . but the 16'slash has much smaller wheels than merv so the load on the servo is less. if u want to upgrade servo, u can put two of the same servo as the car has slots for 2 steering servos  or maybe just another higher end mini servo like savox, hitec(waterproof).

10k is a good deal . check the differential housing as its likely to break under heavy trashing, also check the steering knuckles pivot ball part front and rear for irregular movement, those break if it breaks[first hand experience] Smiley

Firstly i would like to know if you WANT a 1/16th RC? If this is your first RC car i would suggest a 1/10 scale irrespective of how good the deal on this E-Revo is.

If you are bent on a 1/16th RC then look no further.
Keep in mind that you may need spares down the line - please check spares costs to know get an approximate idea of how much you may have to shell out when(inevitable) you crash.

If the chassis, shocks and electronics look good you can go ahead.
The body may be cracked, tyres may have worn out, battery may be weak, chassis may be scratched - these are expected in an RC. It all depends on what is acceptable to YOU.

Without any snaps of the mini, this is all i have to say Smiley

sir,

i already have a 1/10 scale brushed rustler 3705 with me.
where as this car is brushless i was ready to buy it for the price he was quoting.
or else i would not have gone for 1/16 because its too small.
if possible i will swap all the internals between these two cars and make the rustler really fast.
and transfer the brushed system of rustler to this and this because of its size nad weight would be anyways much faster as usual.

Mini E-Revo electronics on a rustler= Fail. Nearly zero parts are cross compatible across the rustler and the mini E-revo.
