I’m trying to put together my first build and I was thinking of a 4x4 Evo 40 Spectrum since it seems that eBoosted makes a 12s8p pack for it. So with two Focboxes in there, maybe I can get a 10s8p?? The main purpose of the build is some moderate offroading and general urban use. I live in an area with a ton of hills so it has to climb steep hills quickly. I’d run 200x50s most likely and probably gear it for a top speed in the low 30s as I dont need to go crazy fast and prefer more torque. I was thinking of maybe four 6368s for motors.
Anyway, I mostly wanted to know how the build differs from a 2WD build in terms of planning. For example, for the trucks would I just get two rear trucks and mount the front truck backwards? Is it more ideal to mount the Focboxes on top of each other in the back of the enclosure, or put one on each end of the enclosure with the battery in the middle?
In terms of millage, how much does adding the two additional motors decrease mileage? I’ve heard reports it’s as bad as half the millage of 2WD, and others saying it only shaves maybe 10% off.
