Traxxas Revo 2.5 – v2 (Brushless Conversion)

After my first attempt to convert the Revo to brushless I decided to go strip most of the stock components out; all the electronics and tranny.
The first thing I need to make is a battery holder. I took the same 90 degree aluminum I use for the motor mounts and milled out a pair of battery holders. In the picture below you can see the before and after shots of the batter holder.

After spend a long time milling the battery holders I stole the battery staps from my Xray sedan and mounted it to the new alum battery holders.

Here is a view of the E-Revo to the right with the 2.5 chassis and my other Gas Revo with the 3.3 chassis. All i need is a EMAXX transmission, with my luck Traxxas just came out with a new emaxx with a stronger tranny. Off to ebay i go for a Emaxx tranny and 3.3 revo chassis.
