    New motor in a emaxx questions

    So I was putting a emaxx together off of spare parts and the only motor I have is a 1/10 scale 4600 toro and esc. Runs great on a 3 cell doing back flips and still under 100 degrees. My question is besides heat what kills brushless motors. As long as temps are good is there anything else I have to worry about?

    Where can I find its Max rpm? Have it geared at 11/68 do you think it will hit 50000 rpm geared that low

    That is geared way too low! Depending on your tires you will hit 50000 quite quickly
    Sometimes from the specs of the motor
    Now is see! 3s is not recommended http://www.ckhobby.com/shop/?control...product_id=386
    Short course motor
