    The pairs of wires are to carry the current. It is possible to drive 2 motors off 1 ESC but it's very risky and can cause serious damage (think smoke and fire). You'll want to run both of the motor...

    At those speeds you must be using the steering trim to steer it :lol: The only "limiter" that I know of is the LVC. As hard as you're pushing that thing you may be sucking the voltage down so far...

    Definitely, under acceleration you're probably pulling over 200 amps to get those temps that fast. How warm was it on the day you did that run? The fan on the MMM could help get it down before you...

    Now I finally see why you were asking me about the 1521s ;) Are you still getting the 1Y? A 1Y on 8s should put you up over 50k RPMs with enough torque that you could run a spur gear as a pinion...

    IIRC you aren't supposed to lube the 2 speed trannies at all because it will get on the shaft with the OWB and will keep it from locking up properly.

    I've worked out most of the problem areas in my Ruster, it's overall a very durable RC. I'd like to see better gears in the tranny (better steel and maybe go to a wider pitch like 32p), new diff...

    I did the conversion back when the XL-5s first came out. I found it easier to lube the shaft up a bit with some 3-in-1 oil then slide it on. If you can't slide it on a socket or something to press...

    Try cutting off the switch, strip the 2 wires back a little and twist the wires together. This will bypass the switch and it should work again. If not then send it back to Castle and they'll fix it...

    Can you get video of it? It could be a tight Pinion/Spur gear mesh, it could be motor noise, or you could have a diff going out. Those are usually the biggest causes of grinding noises.

    If you think the Rustler is expensive, I wouldn't venture too far away from it! An exhaust pipe for an HPI Baja 5b will run you up to $250. Clutch shoes are about $30, a PAIR of tires WITHOUT foams...

    I only have 1 3s, so it'll be on 2s for a while especially since I picked up a 10,000 mAH 2s (I may just try to make it good enough on 2s). It's going to turn more RPMs than the motors I have now,...
