    erevo with titan 12t

    my brother put 12t motors in a erevo and i gear it with 15t pin and 68t spur. i was curious if this is going to be ok. it is the same setup i put in a emaxx and it was fine. we really havent run it because his son took it through some parking lot ponds before changeing the motors and filled the tires with water and we are waiting for new tires and wheels.

    what ESC are you using? I'm more worried on overheating the motor/esc. truck way to heavy.

    With the EVX-2 both motors will be receiving the total voltage of the two battery packs you are using.
    This is (nominally):

    14.4V for two 6-cell NiMH
    16.8V for two 7-cell NiMH
    14.8V for two 2S LiPo

    The Titan 12T's are rated for:
    8.4V, one 7-cell NiMH maximum. After that, especially with a heavy truck, they'll get very toasty.

    One Dewalt 14.4V motor for about $35 would have been a good choice.
