From my experience you have to watch motor temps, no motor is perfect or indestructable. That sounds like a high load application and if the motor was exposed to that for sufficient durration of...
I've had good luck with a hobby wing ez run 25A. I have had one in/out of my merv many times while the vxl-3m had to go back for warranty.
Thanks guys. I may have to look into that. Appreicate the input to date and any other thoughts to be shared.
Thanks goodie, may have to try that although not sure if it will work locally, not a lot of RCers around here and never been one to go the fleabay route.
Wholly crap, I didn't even realize that I wasn't selling a charger with it! Thanks Jim!
What about all the extra tires/parts, try to part them out separate?

I'm semi trying to sell my merv as I just don't have time for it with 6 other 1/10th scales to maintain and it seems to require more maintenance.

I have my kids pedes still running brushed and I've had better luck with HPI 15T motors... they last longer and slow it down just a bit. They can be found on ebay for ~$10...
I run a tacon 10T which is ~3500kv with first a hobbywing and now a velineon esc. Personally I've had great luck with hobbywing and tacon and I think you can get a waterproof 120A for $55 and with a...

I bought my merv used with a ezrun 35A sl and it has ran flawless with the stock motor, I'm waiting for warranty replacemetn velinion #4 to show up :S
I have gone through 3 ESC's in a total run time of less than an hour and it has not been the servo yet. Traxxas keeps doing the $45 replacement but I put a hobbying that I bought for $40 in there...
man why are my ESC issues never just the servo :S
No luck :( back to traxxis it goes I gues :( again...

Not hot, I could easily still touch the ESC and motor, warm yes, hot no....
My first thought was thermal protection but it never came back to life :(
This is the same exact problem I'm having now however I was only running a single 2S lipo at the time.
Hey everyone, I'm getting very discouraged... A little background... I bought this merv used with a hobbywing esc and the stock traxxas that came with it which had already fried. I took advantage of...
