    1/16 summit vxl

    One question, i got a traxxas 1/16 summit roller and i have already put in a traxxas motor, can i use a 35amp or 25amp hobby wing esc from nitrorcx.com. Because the motor from traxxas 1/16 velineon says its needs 25amp constant and 50 amp bust, well the 25amp esc says its 25amp constant and 90amp burst. Will Those escs work with that motor? If not please let me know what other cheap esc's there are that i can use with that kind of motor, Thanks

    In my opinion, those will not work well. There are people burning up ESC's with ratings that are similar... I use a 60 amp ESC in mine and have not had any issues. I still need to watch my run time and gear properly, but I can run it for the full set of 2200mAh packs in parallel, which is about an hour, without worry.

    Is this motor brushed or brushless?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
