    Other way around, actually. Lower kv motors make more torque but don't spin as fast, higher kv motors spin faster, but have to work harder to produce the torque so they heat up. You can gear a...

    Sounds like wayyy too high of kv for our vehicles. Not knowing anything specific about that system, it sounds like it could perform pretty well in a smaller vehicle, but for this truck I think you...

    I'd love to see a Ram body, but if anyone came out with one, it'd probably be an aftermarket company like JConcepts or Proline. If Traxxas came out with one, they'd have to come out with the other...

    So I have to drop another 25 bucks if I want the wires to match up? That's crap.


    No ill effects to swapping some wires? It looks pretty rednecked to me, but if those are my options, I guess...

    The motor plate shouldn't be loose if you're using the stock one. Check the tightness of the screw at the bottom that the plate pivots on maybe and make sure you're using the correct length screw...

    So similar to the stock system, temps should stay below 190-200F to prevent damage? Were you running a heat sink or fan on the motor? 45mph on a bash-able setup sounds pretty nice to me. I'll pick...

    The only reason I mention those speeds on 2s is in a case like the Havoc system where that's the most it will handle. So forget the Havoc system then.

    All I'm really looking for is something that will do everything the stock VXL system does with much less heat, and is race-able on 2s. Should I then just stick with the stock system and invest in a...

    Only 30mph? The stock VXL system puts down an alleged 60+ mph on 3s with 18/54, so with the 5000kv of that Novak on 2s, I'd be getting similar RPM so in theory, if I geared an extra tooth up to...
