So I had in one of my other posts that my Velinion motor has a small squealing sound whenever I hit the throttle hard. Now I'm disappointed because I got new tires today (2.8" badlands front, 2.8" trenchers rear) and my motor is barely working. I always thought of the VXL combo to be great, but now it can barely pull it's own weight (literally). It started out ok, then I would run and the motor would stop working for half a second while I was speeding up (mostly in grass) and then come back. I would give it throttle and it would start moving and then die for just a little bit, just enough to lose a bit of speed but not enough to stop. I have fans on both the ESC and Motor, the esc was freezing cold (probably because it's 5 degrees Celsius where I am), and the motor got warm, but nowhere near hot or thermaling, I could easily touch it for over 10 seconds without taking my finger off it. It was inbetween warm and hot.
I'm annoyed because I just spend $30 for fans for this combo and now my motor is on the way out (I'd say). I also cannot take the motor apart to clean and service it and the bearings because the aluminum motor mount screws ("Traxxas hardened screws" ) are completely stripped. I tried for about an hour today to take them off but no luck, I don't have a dremel either. I'm also annoyed because just when I thought everything is good, my motor is dying.
So now I'm on the search for a new esc because I already have a motor in mind found here. It isn't much to pay, but then I also need a new ESC, and then I need MIP axles, and so on and so on. I'm only 15 and my parents think I spent a lot ($75) for these tires, it's the biggest purchase since I got the car. My mom says that I can get the motor, because it isn't a lot. Is there any way I can use the motor above with the VXL-3? If I can, then I'm ordering one tonight. I can get a new pinion and I'm running 7.4v 40c 5000mah lipo's in my car. I REALLLY REALLLLY want to get this motor because of Jangs video found here .
If I can't then I guess I'll get either this ESC:
because it's a fair price or this ESC:
because it's more performant.
My last question is would the motor stated above work with the Castle SV3 ESC? That's my preffered ESC because Castle is a great company, it's 100% waterproof and it's pretty cheap. If that motor would work with the VXL ESC or the Castle SV3 ESC, then I would be really happy. I never run 3s and probably won't until I move out so any help PLEASE!
PS. Sorry for the redonkulously long post but I want the readers to know exactly what I want and why. Any Help is appreciated. Seriously. Any.
