    The 2.5D is a great motor. Awesome track motor on 5S, and would be blistering fast on 6S. RCMonster Mike runs 2.5Ds on his truggs on 5S.

    I am getting 50mph on my trug on 5S, but I need to gear...

    The TRC 8000 10C packs are great. Mine are going on 2 yrs old and still doing really well. I've ran them with a few different setups and they all have plenty of power. On my mm/8XL setup I was...

    You can actually see the motor temp trace on the 2nd graph, but its a bit hard to read. It was a torture test of the system. Basically WOT in long grass up and down a fairly steep hill as non-stop as...

    Thank you. I was answering the precise question which was asked, which was how much wattage to do 45mph? It was not a motor advice solicitation. It is obvious that the OP is experienced and at least...

    I would say 1200-1800W peak for 40-45mph. Continuous is far less. More like 300-600W depending on weight, etc. The top is a single speed run to ~42mph on a 16.5V pack on a 8XL in a Revo. The bottom...

    BTW, do you have an eagletree? Looking at the vid (hot motor, tough terrain, lots of power) I bet you were pulling a ton of amps. Quite a challenge for the Q125 I bet.

    Ouch..not quite the vid you had in mind :(

    G/L on the replacement and resuming filming. My Neu 1515 threw the magnet, so I need a repair too. With RCs, if its not one thing its another... yet we...

    You need another balance tap and wire that as demonstrated.

    Its easy to do, but you must be extremely careful. If you cut the lipo bag or short them out you ruin the cell. Also don't pry on them...

    I've shattered two cups and broke two drive pins (on the bone) on my TRX CVDs. Not too happy for what I paid for them. The sliders are back on and they are great. Stay w/ the sliders

    I wish you luck. With all the upgrades it should be pretty tough. My revo is mostly stock aside from the pushrods and turnbuckles (only parts that seemed to bend/break easy) and its been very tough,...

    yeah, you might be ok, but I still think any hard driving would heat it up. I would also recommend a 7Xl over that as you could have and easier time reselling it if it was a temp motor. I had this...

    Yeah, I get enough looks regarding the RCs from my wife, i'm pretty sure if I started dragging garden hoses and bike wheels into the office she'd find a way to get my acct banned :p :)

    Outcast is exactly right, there is no way you'll be able to do 45mph on 3S. 45 is really really fast. I question this as a reasonable goal. My Revo w/ a 4S/8xl would only do ~40 w/ talons on, and...

    I don't think this is true the way this is written. The angular momentum works like gyro to resist the wheels from turning side to side, as you are actually having to use energy to change the...

    Thank you, that demonstrates my point. I still don't think the ESC would do 5s reliably tho, 5S is 21V off the charger, and you get voltage spikes w/ electronic braking. The batt voltage is too close...

    Amp capability has nothing to do w/ voltage capability. The type and quality of the FETs will determine how much voltage they can handle. The # of them in the ESC determines the amp capacity

    Would I rather have a V-8 or a twin 4 cyl car?:wacko: Gimme the big block.

    I don't get the "history" thing either. I don't drive carbureted cars, and I don't browse forums on a monochromatic CRT...

    Holy frigs :eek: Yeah I wouldn't run it like that too long if you don't want to ruin something. Fans & HS are only going to do so much. Not really solving the problem, but just trying to mask it....

    w10P0ersonally I would go with the RC Monster motor mount, the Tekno esc and batt mount, and think about going with the 6.5 instead of the 4.5. The 4.5s burn up pretty easy unless they are geared...
