    So are the ezrun 80s holding up ok temp wise with the 2350 motor? I know they are only rated for 80A, but it would be nice to know they dont thermal during a run.

    I'm running the 7xl geared 20/68 and its a nice setup but does run kinda hot. UP to 42mph on good lipos. I use the novak heatsink and it really helps to keep things cool. I have experimented a bunch...

    I charge my lipos very very slowly and they have all lasted quite a long time. I have never had one puff or even a cell go bad. I charge at about .25C and it takes a while but unless you are in a...

    I just got done putting an 8L in my e-savage and I have the 7XL in my emaxx and its night and day. The 8L runs strong, but the shear torque of the 7XL is crazy.

    MMM v3, 7XL, 4S on emaxx a hit

    I think I have put enough runs on my new MMM V3 to say that it is rock solid. I've started and stopped it, run it up hills, flipped it, dropped it, and it just keeps coming back for more. I'm one of...

    Keep in mind the sensorless systems dont really cog that much unless there is a load on them. My MMM and 7xl doesnt cog. Turn the tires and put some strain on the motor and it cogs a bit. Going up a...

    You should see if you can return the lipo. The specs though seem like they should be ok, but the manufacture probably overrated them. 20C at 3200mah is good for 64amps theoretically, but I agree this...

    I love BL systems too, but this just isnt the application. With BL you get cogging. Even the best systems get cogging. The more resistance, like rock crawling, the more cogging. You want complete...

    Nimh are only good for 35A continuous. If you are running the 700Ho's you are pulling more than that. Nimh will power 700Ho's but I think the current draw is too much and you are going to vent them....

    Lipos can provide current nimh cant. They dont give more speed than a 7 cell pack up to 35A draw. You can get longer runtimes 8000mah vs 4600mah for roughly the same weight and size. Lipos should...

    I think you are just unlucky. The emaxx puts a pretty good load on the batteries though. I would gear down a tooth or so. Without the 2 speed you can see amp peaks of 80A which is way more than nimh...

    I have my emaxx geared for 42mph right now and the stock tires and drivetrain and holding up great. I have over 20 runs now on this setup.

    When I get the motor I'm going to run 20/54 on 4S.

    Ya its pretty close. The 2200 on 4S should be more than enough. I think I'm going to gear it up a couple of teeth when I get it to match my current speed.

    A 7xl is 2382 vs the Castle is 2200. Its pretty close. Not 500kv difference you point out though. You just have to gear up a bit and the Castle 2200 will be at the same level. Oracle is right though,...

    We had a great discussion about this at the RCM forum. Everyone agreed the 2200 on 4S is going to be good for around 40-45mph. The kv on the 7XL is pretty close to the new 2200 motor. You should gain...

    I run 20/68 on a 7xl and get 36-42mph depending on my timing setting. With normal timing I think I'm around 38mph. I dont think it matters if you get the 7 8 or 9xl. With 4S you are going to generate...
