As NFS said, the balance wires/connectors on the batteries are only for charging.
Yeah, you might as well short the powerswitch, its going to fail sooner or later - and it sounds like it just did..
So, I finished the conversion. Ended up with a Savox SV1270TG. I run it at 7V - just to be safe. As chapinb suggested I power the servo directly from the bec and then run the control wire from the rx...
Hmm, doesn't look compatible with tekno sways..
Regarding diffs I must add that I never had a problem with mine (running 4S) - maybe I'm lucky.. For me the CVD's are a must, I found that the stock shafts are just too weak at the joints. I have...
It can also be a grain stuck in the spur, happened to me more than once..
I read somewhere (just now) that the sidewinder 1/8 is rated at 90A compared to the MMM's 120A. So there is a difference, just odd it doesn't say on castle's sidewinder 1/8 page (correct me if I'm...
Yeah, that would just require common ground I guess.
What's Castle's reasoning behind this new sidewinder? I mean its specs are awfully close to the MMM, but its much cheaper.
Thanks for you replies, much appreciated. I think I'll go with an external bec then, the reason for me being a bit hesitant on that is that I'm in europe and the castle products are so **** expensive...
Thanks for answering :) I'm considering the SA-1283SG instead, it costs a bit more and is also a bit "weaker" but somewhat faster than the 1230. I'll try w/o a bec at first and see how it goes..
I'm about to take the plunge and convert to single servo and I'm thinking of using the savox 1230tg. The question is; is it really necessary to add an external bec when the mmm delivers 5.5v (I...

I run 4s exclusively and have done so for several years now. In my time I've stripped one diff and that was my fault for having the slipper too tight (happened soon after upgrading to MMM). The only...
The spur was the culprit. I didn't seem that worn to me, I'm used to running the 1:10 revo, so I guess I need to adjust my mind to the smaller scale (including wear-inspection) when working on the...
Ok, thanks, seems like a front diff+bulk inspection is in order..
The kid's vxl started "ticking" when accelerating hard on high traction surfaces = high torque through transmission. So I checked spur - spur like new. Took apart rear diff - no fluid, but gears...
TX reset did the trick :-)
my son just got his brand new revo 1/16, but it wont turn right - only very very little. Left turn is fine. Trim is centered. HELP!
If you don't like/want wheelies then drop in a center diff..
Myself and two buddies of mine run with Futaba 3pm 2.4g, we're all very happy with it.
Got mine from modelsport as well, mounted on hpi warlocks: http://www.modelsport.co.uk/index.php?product_id=24600
Works like a charm :-)
check front+rear diffs
