    titan 775...how fast, how durable?

    i know im gonna need a new motor soon because my titans get too hot to touch every run. after 5 minutes today they were too hot to touch. im wondering about the 775. i know theres some people out there using it...how do you like it? is this thing durable? does it get really hot? what gearing are you using? how much faster/slower is it than the titans?

    I like it in my E-Revo so far, but it looks like the 23t pinion will be too big for off road use right now and you will need to dremel the blue twin motor plate so that there is enough room for the motor mount to swing to the right of the truck. I do have the single motor plate and it looks like that will allow for more room use the large pinion with the 68t spur.

    check out my thread i did a few months back with the 775 ryobi 18v motor 20 and 22 teeth. Iam running 62spur and 22pin the motor never gets hot 95f max and esc 115-120f. Dont get the traxxas 775 its crap get a ryobi or dewalt drill motors will last a lot longer. With the ryobi motor i didn't have to drill anything out everything just mounted up like the stock motors.

    Iam just saying a 775 titans wont last like a drill motor you can also replace the brushes when they go out on the drill motors. With the 775 titan when the brushes get worn its trash. Titan 775 is around $35+ shipping and a dewalt 12v or 18v is around $28 shipped. I know for me the titans didn't last that long on revo about 20 runs and slash 25. My drill motor has over 45+ runs on it and still going strong.

    what im worried about with the drill motors is they seem to be much slower than stock. i dont want that, 1-2 mph slower is fine, but dropping the speed from 27-28 to 20-22 is just too much for me how much slower is the kd700ho?

    thats the same thing that the ryobi is. i guarantee it. the titan is just a m-775. the ones that come out of the drill are 775hc's thats the exact same motor traxxas just puts there sticker on it. and calls it a titan.

    It will be interesting to see how long this one lasts, I've already killed one of each of the stockers.

    how high a pinion can you go (basically no potential damage to the car) with the 775 with the stock spur?

    I cannot figure out and never will, why Traxxas can ship a great truck like the Erevo with Titans or in any of their trucks for that matter..

    a couple of years ago I went to this park with great slopes and trees (ecxuse my english) in the fall , so a lot of small acorns and nuts and leaves and small branches on the ground...

    ran for 5 minutes with stock Titans.. some parts from the ground wrecked the motors almost instantly.. the week before another set died in a puddle of water ...

    Went to the same park with a brushless motor... drove for 45 minutes the same place.... still has that Brushless motor and it works great ...

    You cannot sell a pricy truck like the erevo with Titans... no offense to all of you who get a lot from your Titans...

    me and Titans, a bad mix :-)

    i bought brushed over brushless cause i want to be waterproof. i dont care that people say that there are ways to make the mmm waterproof, i like knowing the titans are waterproof and that i paid 200$ less. knowing that im waterproof and will only have to pay 30$ for a new motor makes me glad they sell a brushed version.

    I've run anywhere from 12t all the way up to 22t on my 775. Here's the videos of it running with both.

    12t and 16.8v, pulling all of my crawler stuff around the back yard in a Gorilla Cart garden wagon.

    22T and 16.8v with on-road setup

    Same set up, but OE tires and with the Go-Pro on board camera

    I didn't have much lick with mine either, unless they were in one of my Losi Crawlers (red and black Warthogs in the first video) or my SCX10 (Green and Black Cherokee in same video) and Wheely King (Dark Blue Cherokee in same vid), then they're fine.

    I think Titans are good in crawlers placed high above the ground and not so affected with water and debris then.

    Actually, in my SCX10 the Titan 21t I ran in that was closer to the ground than in my E-Revo!

    Dewalt is faster than Titan 775 or single KD700ho. On par with dual KD700 ho's. Dewalt can also handle 5s lipo power for serious brushed power and speed.

    Well now here's an old thread. I've been brushless since June of 2009. Titan 775 didn't even last me as long as the stock 550s did.
    Using while stupid may cause serious injury.

    I will also bet that when the Summit gets in my garage, it will converted BL in only a matter of time.... if it will maintain its crawling abillity,,,

    It won't do much for that, you'll probably have drivetrain parts failures left and right too if you go the normal route for BL in one of these. If I were to do so, I'd be looking at some of the airplane outrunners, they have huge amounts low end grunt, decent RPM, and I'm thinking a 15-32 size motor will fit in the E-Revo/Summit mount and be able to use a 5mm pinion on the motor's propshaft!

    Go Tekin and 1700kv motor on 4s lipo. All the speed a Summit with big tires can handle and great crawling ability with no cogging. Enough torque to spin all four on pavement.

    I will remember that. Torque is important on the Summit and I want brushless , period :-)

    Yea, you'll want low kV with a Summit, too bad nobody makes a waterproof brushless besides the smaller Traxxas stuff.
