Well ladies and gentlemen, it seems as if I have solved my pede problems ( knock on wood ). I installed a MM2 with a 2650k motor today. Had to move things around. ( I can show pics if interested ). But it's installed and it's vicious. Before I ran it, I put a cage on. Man ol man, that cage is a must if you are running any Castle Creations ESC/motors. My Pede will flip at full punch at 45 mph. It's sick fast and extremely powerful.

Enough of that for now. I DO have a question.. On the esc there is a red/black wire... what is that for? also, my fan does not turn on, is that because the esc is not hot?

here is a pic.
