    Beach fun - paddle tires on my slash 2wd

    went to the beach this week and put some proline slingshots on the rear and some proline slicers up front. was a lot of fun with the paddle tires. would have been pointless without them

    it was a lot of fun. we built a track with a shovel with jumps and a whoops section.

    What spur gear cover do you have and did you find any sand in there?

    i had the rpm one. i was told not to run one because it would fill up. but i ran it with one on it. i checked after 2 days of playing and no sand inside. (not much at least)

    i had to the wrong spur gear and pinion for the paddle tires though. it gets hot so fast. and no rc shops near wherea i am for the week.

    i had a 90 spur and a 23 pinion. needed a smaller pinion. but oh well.

    That's not to bad unless you are running the titan in the sand,but the velineon should run a bit before a rest.
    But then again it looks warm there,and the sand does make them work pretty hard,

    Yeah billy it's a castle 1410 motor. 3800kv. I thought it would be okay for the sand. But yeah maybe it's the hot sand making it heat up so fast.

    Seems like it would be easy to cool down on the beach...if your motor is waterproof. I cant wait to try mine out on the beach this summer.

    Water proof or not,salt water is bad news.
    That is the last place you want your rig wp,or not.

    @ wakeskaterbs, What kind of temps are you hitting,and how long does it take to get that warm.

    At the beach or the desert when I run the Proline paddle tires I use 18/86 and or 19/90 and motor temps stay in the 120* range. Run on 2s with a CC 5700 kv motor.

    Wow those are some pretty cool running temps for a 5700.
    I just bought a 4800 and was worried about temp.

    Well I do also have a motor heat sink with a cooling fan.... and a Hot racing tranny that has a nice aluminum motor mounting plate with cooling fins. I also put the Traxxas cooling fan on the Castel ESC as a precaution.....

    Prior to that, the motor temps with paddles would get to 160*.
