How can I convert 9 Volt to 12 Volt?

I have a 9 volt Revolution and would like to change the voltage regulator and make it a 12 volt. Anyone know of a site that can walk me through this.
Thanks
Kocoum

there is no way that i know to make a 9 volt a 12 volt. BUT...i do know how to make a 9 volt an 18 volt (faster than 12 volt). Take the 9 volt rev, and take out the battery tray (it has the metal things for the batterie, etc.) Take a 12 volt battery tray and put it in the 9 volt. (in other words switch them) Then unscrew the 9 volt paddle (there is a screw keeping it in place in the middle of the pddle) and switch it with the 12 volt paddle. So basically, switch the battery trays and switch the paddles. The 18 volt mod is FAST, however, it blows boards faster than usual.

Thanks, I have already switch the paddles to the four blade 12 volt type. This has made a big difference. But what I'm looking for is a part number to change the voltage regulator on the board. I know the servo is the same as a 12 volt, but the regulator is what makes the difference.
Thanks for the help

Hey Kocoum,

Go to www.wickedairsportz.com and purchase the 9v TurboRev upgrade. This will convert your 9v Revolution into a 12v and will also improve its' capabilities, i.e. more bps. (see the web site for more information)

I think putting the 12 volt paddles have helped out a lot. I was out shooting the standard 9 volt paddles and now it happens less, but I still do. I got Four of these 9 volt hoppers pre-BE and want to hold on to them, but I would like to play with one and see how fast I can get it.
Thanks for the link I'll give them a try. I'll let everyone know what I come up with.
Thanks
Kocoum
