Cool. Post pics!
After 10 mins of pretty hard accelerating and stuffing around bashing yesterday the motor was 137 F and the esc was 100 F. The weekend before after about 25+ mins the motor was in the 160s ... Can't...
Gearing is currently 16/90. Running mostly on tar road and a bit of grass at the moment. Outside temps between 20-25 C. Just waiting on some new gear options to arrive to see if they make any...
I am using that Reedy motor and esc combo in my truck. It is probably my gearing, but I'm finding I'm having a few heat dramas.
So I took it out for a 10 min run today with the temp gun at close hand.
After that run with the 16/90 gearing the esc was 100 F and the motor was 137 F.
Should I try a 14T pinion?
Looking forward to it!
That's what I thought as well, but a majority of people reckon it's a good set up... I don't even know if my motor and esc are going to hold up and work properly after the weekend issue.
Just bought a 19/86 set up... Will see how that goes when it arrives!
What would be best for bashing around, mainly shorter distance drives (it lots of accelerating) on grass and tarred road?
I threw a Reedy brushless system from a TA SC10 in my Traxxas Monster Jam truck running 2s lipo.
90t spur and 16 pinion.
I was checking temps and they got to about 165 F.
So I pull my truck down to fix the annoying clicking noise thinking it's the diffs. Checked and shimmed them ... Noise is still there.
Can the centre transmission make a clicking noise for any...
Thanks for the reply.
No error lights on the rx...
I'll have a bit more of a play this afternoon.
So I go to run my Merv after it has been sitting for a few months.
Charge up the battery, plug it in, turn it on.
Esc lights up. Cooling fan kicks in. Servo works. Motor doesn't.
Got back into working on my Merv today after it has been sitting for a few months. There is a horrible grinding noise coming from what appears to be the centre gears/transmission. I...
Does it matter if the shim was put on the other side of the gear? I just pulled my truck down to do this and out it all together before seeing the picture above.
Bugger of a job pulling the diffs...
What should I do?
I am feeling the need to buy 'big brother' (ERBE... or a Flux, haven't decided fully) and can afford or justify buying it without selling anything else.
I have my SC and Pede...
Cool body mate. Personally, I don't like the red arms or bumpers. If they were black I reckon this would be one of the better looks MERVs getting around.
Does anyone know of any 3s lipos from Hobby king that fit in the Stampede?
I bought two different ones and neither fit without reasonable modification to the chassis.
Does anyone know of any...
Pretty sure I stripped one of my diffs (not sure which one... think it's the back - how do you tell?) I have a clicking/grinding noise coming when the car is accelerating under load (not...
My SCT arrived for my Kyosho SC and I was so impressed with it I have decided to sell my brand new VXL gear and have bought another SCT system.
I'm pretty sure I'm flat out pushing 130F with my motor at the moment after some reasonably hard running. Thanks for the advice!
I spose all i can do is have a go and keep checking the temps.
What's the safe maximum temp for the esc and motor?
I am running a MERV with stock VXL system.
The batteries I used are 3s Rhino 1550mAh.
I am running the stock gearing Traxxas recommend in their 'speed gearing' - 23/50.
Hey guys, I am probably buying this SCT system soon.
The current gearing I have for my Pede is 20/86.
What does people recommend for running with 2 cell lipo? Is 23/86 a better choice? What if...
I actually haven't run my Pede yet, but when I bought my Mini E-Revo VXL I threw 3s lipos in straight away - it was crazy fast and crazy fun.
I'm sure the Pede would be the same, although being a...
