    Full throttle on my E-Revo 1/16 vxl?

    Hi,can I push my E-Revo too the max 50+mph with the optional Pinion and a second battery pack,too the battery drains out? The brushless power system get's real hot after about 5 min or so,can It take all that power and still work? What do you guys think? As it is now,I'm a little afraid to push too the max 15 minutes or so?

    Thanks!

    if it is hot, stop


    you can run it for as long as it will run, until you fry it for getting it too hot, too long

    Go big block, or just get the heat sink, and go LiPo. ONLY BUY THE TRAXXAS LIPOS! Or Gens Ace...
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    You could use a more efficient small block like a nue or install a big block then run all day like that. Don't over heat your system. A temp gun is one of your best investments. It will help with gear n tire changes as well as how your model performs in different terrain.

    No, you cant do 15 minutes of 50MPH WOT with the stock system without overheating.

    Yes, you can hit 50MPH on the stock system without much work.

    Works great, lifetime warranty. I heard the HF one was cheaper though. Less expensive I mean.

    The HF one I use is the same size as the Duratrax one... as a matter of fact, they look the exact same.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
