    Boy that was fun for about 10minutes....

    Wish I could post a pic with a cell phone, bought a cheap 4x4 roller just to go fast with added a 80a esc a tacon 3650 4420kv motor and a sky lipo 3s 5000mah battery and esc. Caught on fire after a few speed passes dang truck was flying! Pinion an spur 16/54. Well can the pros tell me how bad that set up was? Try to be nice also can anyone recommend a cheap esc an motor? Just for speed runs. So basically after seeing some crazy speed im addicted and want to go fasterThanks guys.

    The Motor / ESC you chose were not powerful enough to push a heavy SC truck at 60 mph

    How fast do you want to go ?

    How much do you want to spend ?

    and 3s and 16t pinion is a little much too the stock gear you're only suppose to use 2s with is only 13 if I'm not mistaken. if anything, put a smaller pinion on it, or put a 1/8th system in it if you want high gearing for ridiculous speeds, otherwise you're just going to keep burning up 1/10th scale systems
    fix, run, break, repeat

    Never used that ESC so cant help you there

    I run the Xerun 150 and it works well

    To do 60 mph without heat issues you need a big motor and lots of voltage (4s)

    Underpowered 540 sized motors will not cut it

    Cheers

    yeap it happened to me, just for quoting the original poster on a repply message, and then just for putting some characters instead of a funny face.

    Each member has TOTAL control over what goes into their posts, whether it is their own words, a quoted post, a picture, a video or other. If any of these do not meet the Traxxas Online Community Rules, the solution is very simple: DON'T POST IT.

    Come on now you have been here long enough and know how this forum works. You were well aware what you typed was breaking the rules. You should also know by now that complaining about the rules in the open forum is against the rules as well and can earn you an infraction as well.
