    VXL3m??

    Ok, I'm Excited about the ERevoBE 1/16 truck and I'm probably gonna get one, but my question is about the VXL3m. I compared the specs in traxxas's website, and they look similar enough with a little differences (with the VXL 3s i think being a little better... but if they started selling those separately, will it run a velineon 3500 Brushless motor?? I would want to put one of those on my Slash. Will it take regular batts?? Will it work on a slash??
    Vrooom!!!!

    it's for a micro, don't expect the amp capabilities to be the same.. keep the correct systems together to keep things happy and fun.

    No it won't work well, the VXL motor pulls alot of amps and could heat up the mini to the point of failure!

    The vxlm set-up is for a 380 sized motor so no the 540 motor would be properly powered

    The VXLm is not rated the same as it's full size brother..
    52amps cont vs. 200amps cont
    the mini will fail when used with the full size 540 brushless motor..
