Hey guys i just bought my first traxxas and im pretty new to RC
I ran it with the stock velenion system on a 3s and it was getting way to hot and had to cool down alot.
I decided to get a Mamba Monster 2200 and esc.
Installation was easy and i ran it with the 3s lipo (6400mah 25c) it seemed slower than the velenion system.
Im assuming its because the motor is lower KV. After doing alot of reading people are saying the 4s is "crazy" fast so i bought a Gens Ace 4s (5000mah 40c)
OK this speed was definatley faster but only seemed a bit faster than the velenion system. So i am kind of dissapointed. I watch you-tube vids and there is guys pulling crazy wheelies. My car does not wheelie at all. NOt even a little bit... I am running the stock 54t spur and 18t pinion.
I have 6.5mm castle bullet connectors i soldered on everything.
I also pick my truck up and the tires dont really balloon much just a little.
OK so my issue is i thought this setup is supposed to be crazy fast? and i want to be able to wheelie
Is my pinion to small? WHat size should i try? SHould i goto 6s to get wheelies?
I was watching a vid of a guy running 3s and he was doing crazy wheelies.
