Thanks a lot I am definitely going to try out that mod!! :thumbup:
Just one question the only thing you did was change the coupler correct? Are you using the stock flex drive?
Where would I be able to buy those things from?
The other day I was out on the lake with my spartan. All was well for the first few minutes; then chaos struck! The shaft came loose. So I retrieve the boat and take the hatch off, I gave a little...
I think after I did the mod of adding the two capacitors now I have much more torque and power, so much that the stock couple and shaft can't handle.
Now I tested it today with...
The grease I am using is Mulit-Purpose Marine Grease for Advance Auto. It says NLGI automotive, wheel bearing & chassis lubricant. On the bottom it says NLGI #2.
So its not the grease?
A few days ago I went out to test my spartan after fixing my "ESC" capacitor problems. Now all the electronics are working 100% but them shaft is getting super hot (I touched it with my...
Thanks, I did twist the wires underneath them but the thing is I attached it to the esc with hot glue so that the wires won't move. They are pretty stable are don't move at all they...
The thing is I put hot-glue in order to attach it to the esc so that the wires won't go anywhere!
Also the capacitors are working AMAZING no heating up at ALL! There is only one small...
The caps are wired in series.
Here are some more pictures for you guys I just took from some different angles and better lighting. The thing is I twisted the positive wires together...
Hey you guys I was able to figure a go way on how to solder on two capacitors at once!!!!!!
Take a look and tell me what you like.
The thing is that the capacitors aren't painted either color? But I am assuming the short=black wire and the long=red wire. Correct??
If I do install two capacitors instead of just one is there a positive and negative on the capacitors or it doesn't matter how there are connected? Because I notice one lead is slightly longer then...
I am going right now to go an buy an added capacitor right now! I just have a few more questions to ask before I get started:
Would I have to discharge any of the capacitors?
And would any of...
I have been thinking about purchasing a new wing for my car and wondered if any one has done anything besides purchasing the traxxas painted carbon fiber ones? Anyone have any ideas?? I was thinking...
Let me get this straight?
Once I add another capacitor like anthonyV I would have to waterproof that individual capacitor or redo the whole ESC?
What kind of prop where you using? (Name, brand?)
It would be best to rewire my ESC by setting it up as a stock traxxas esc such as the vxl-3 then connecting a parallel connector with 2qty. 5s batteries?
Would that be a good idea? If not...
Thank ALL of you guys for helping me out with this issue I have been having!! :thumbup:
I sent in my ESC to castle and they replaced it free of charge and another one is on its way back! (My Third...
Alright sounds good keep us posted!!
I was wondering how would you add the additional cc pack to the original ESC? And won't they be vulnerable to water?
Would you recommend using the Prather 220 prop because it has more pitch + 0.1" and a larger diameter +0.12" then the prather s215??
So no matter what I do nothing will cool the capacitors except not going full throttle on 6s lipos..... Correct?
That makes a lot of sense but if so I wonder why you sill got the same result?
Exactly!! There is a brown sugar like substance that came out but very little not like my previous one though. The...
Do you recommend upgrading to the bigger shaft and bigger stuffing tube but keeping the stock electronics? If so where did you buy them from?
Yup stock connectors! 25c discharge traxxas lipos
