    Titan 775 with both VXL 3s ESC and XL-5 ESC? Will it work? Help

    So, I have an Erevo which had a mamba monster motor in it but I took it out to put in another truck. I have a titan 775 motor, a VXL-3s ESC, and a XL-5 ESC laying around that I'n not using. I don't want to go buy an EVX ESC because it's expensive and I'm broke. I was wondering if I can use the Titan 775 motor with both the VXL-3s ESC and the XL-5 ESC? The VXL-3s can power brushed motors by the way. Or is the VXL-3s enough to power the Titan 775 in an Erevo. Since the tital 775 has four wires, I can connect 2 of them to the VXL-3s ESC and the other two to the XL-5 ESC. Will this setup work or not? Please help. Thanks guys.

    The XL5 will just fry...
    Also, trying to control the same motor with two ESC's is simply BEGGING for trouble.

    The 3S ESC may do OK, but do not exceed the 3S/9C limit!!
    Keep in mind this will also mean that you will be going slower... about 25% slower... than stock.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Probably because he did not read the rules.

    oops i didn't know that posting the same thing in different sections is against the rules. How do I delete a thread that I started?
