18 volt x-board mod!!!

I figured out where the voltage regulator was, so out of bordom I thought it would be fun to experiment taking the regulator off to make it run 18 volts. So I took it off and now the motor spins very fast. It feeds faster but it still isn't very consistant so I'll probably get an impeller. I think I fryed the part of the board that controls the eyes so now the eyes don't work. these mods have been done before just not on x-boards I think.

If you figure out what I did I'm not responsible if you fry your board

if you remove the stock reistor then you should replace it with another one just one that allows a little bit more power then the old one. That way you don't mess up your board.

I was wondering how long it was gonna take before someone else figured that out.
I bypassed that resister for about ten seconds and decided that was a horrible idea. Too bad about your board, but that just confirms my initial reaction to the speed.

Lesson:
if you want to PR your revvy do it right, or just hook up the batts straight to the servo and save yourself a board.
