    Will my tires shred??

    Hey guys I've had my summit for a couple years now, and I just got two 3s traxxas 5000 mah LIPOs. I
    Installed a tekin rx8 1900kv motor and have been having a lot of fun on my 7 cell NIMH. I have the swappers on her and I'm wondering in anyone has had theirs with this amount of power and what the tires do. They already balloon a little bit, but I don't want a blow out haha.

    They may not shred...but they likely won't enjoy the massive increase in rpm.wheel bearings are something I upgraded to help with the huge leap in rpm at the wheels.i run a brushless very part time.
    It's harder on parts...etc as long as you know that and don't treat the throttle like a on/off switch it can be done.
    4s is plenty for this truck.6s is going to cause some heartache sooner or later.


    Sent using lipo power

    So my ESC is wired so I will be buying both the series and parallel connectors for the truck. I'm going to enjoy 10,000 MAH At
    12v for long crawling sessions. As for the 20+ volts of bashing power... I try to be careful with my current set up. I have a combine voltage of about 18.5 and I haven't broken anything. (Knock on wood) so I will just be careful.
