I found that the 14.4 over heated on me on anything over 18/68 with stock sized tires. If your running bigger tires like Mudslingers then you need to drop to a 17/68.
But it really depends on...
Installing the new BEC tonight. I will report back soon.
MMX for sure.
Just set the torque limiting to like 5 and you should be go to go man.
Mine ended up in a river for like 35-40 min and still works fine.
I had the BEC sealed in an LEM case. But it looks like the case was not 100% water tight. So a little bit got in there.
I will be making sure its sealed better next time. Tho I don't plan to have...
Ok so problem solved!
If I remove the Castle BEC from the equation the servos work perfectly as they should. The harness checks out. Servos work fine with the harness.
I opened the LEM case...
Ok so its not the servos causing the problem.
When I plugged both servos in to the receiver they both work with no problems. BUT, the brown out the truck if I hook them up to the steering rack and...
Trying that right now. Ill report back as soon as I test every thing.
I only ever gear my truck to do about 30mph in 2nd gear. So 16/68 should give me what I am after.
I never run 6s in the truck. Its my trail truck. I do a little bashing with it, but not much. And...
The leads on the servos are not long enough to make it the receiver with out the Y cable. Only the right side will make it with no extension.
There powered of a Castle 10 amp BEC. Its set to...
Ok so I have been working on rebuilding my truck after it went for an unplanned swim in a river. For about 30-40 minutes. :O.o:
I have the truck to a point where it was time to test the servos....
Well I got a good deal in a Tekin T8 2050kv motor. So I bought it.
The Summit is coming along nice at this point, and I think I will have it up and running again in about a week. Just need a few...
Ok so I am thinking about putting a sensored motor in my Summit. I don't fell that I need one. I currently have an MMX and a 1515 in it and I love it!
But I have never owned a sensored motor, and...
Glad you got it sorted out!
I may try that.
Traxxas Servos don't like 6.v. Just an FYI. Put it back to 5.5. The RX also dose not like 6.V.
Everything Traxxas was meant to run on 5.V.
Blue was the best! Hands down!
But I actually like running something other then the stock body my self.
I would do 2 things. First change the gearing. Drop it to 12/68. This will give you about the same top speed the truck had stock. And it well remove almost all cogging.
Next adjust the ESC.
I don't think that Traxxas will be releasing a new Summit any time soon.
We will see a new Revo model first. That is if they even do a new revo truck.
I don't think they will change much on the...
So I ordered the Avid bearings.
Should be here in a few days.
I to run the 1211s and I love them.
They are really all you need for torque. They flex the chassis more then you would think. Any thing stronger would almost be pointless.
They also have the power...
Same exact thing I did! LOL
Mine however did not come back to life after letting it sit in rice for almost a week.
I just get the blinking red light. And nothing more.
gr8scott72 sounds like you beat on them hard!
I plan to run them in my Summit with an MMX and 1515 in it. But I keep it geared down. 13/62 right now.
And I don't push it to hard. So I think the...
Any one use Fast Eddy bearings?
I want to get a bearing kit ordered soon. I'm looking at all options still. And trying to narrow it down to a few right now.
Looks good man!
So as many of you know my Summit went for a 35min "swim" in a river not to long ago.
After the tear down, I found several bearings that needed to be replaced. Ether do to wear, or to rust.
