That tacon is 40 bucks or so shipped.
I havent noticed any difference in run times.
Packs back to back. I never see above 145
dirt cheap and durable.
Or if you are decided on a higher kv, I have a novak for sale.
I ran 17/50 on 2s when I had the velineon.
It got hot, but never thermaled on me.
I've been very impressed with the tacon I am running.
The ********* is worth a look also.
Only one I have hooked up is the temp gauge.
It works on both of my non traxxas motors and batteries.
My buddy has most of the sensors. Hes not running a traxxas motor and it also works.
I got 6 packs through that combo, geared 15/54.
That motor got hot.
The motor is on its way to Novak now. Novak seems to think I was geared too high.
Ill let you know how it turns out.
Ran 2 packs-17/54, with the fan installed. 60 degrees Fahrenheit here. 121 was as hot as I could get it.
Ran at 112-116 for the majority of the time.
I did break both front axles though. MIP...
The only batteries I have experience with are Traxxas and Venom.
There was a noticeable difference between the two.
The traxxas are noticeably peppier.
I bought a spc today because of this...
My servo is tight like the original pic.
Bought mine at the end of June.
Get the smaller batteries.
I have a 12800. Its a bigger pain then its worth.
Still the same 15/54. Wanted to see how hot it would get.
Novak seems to think it was geared too high, lhs(and I) thought it would be ok.
I ran the velineon at 17/50....that was hot. But it never...
The 2800. 45 dollars shipped.
Those temps were without a fan also.
Needs some tuning. Wheelies were cool at first, but got a little tiresome.
Tacon is in.
Three times the motor that Novak was.
Two packs, never above 150.
Guess I learned my lesson.
Just because the guy behind the counter swears "this will work". Doesnt mean its going...
Don't think that oil is from either. Only between motor/mount.
No evidence of diff issues, shocks are ok.
Tried to get a pic, it wouldn't really show up.
Bought a tacon.
Going to send this one back to Novak.
When I got the motor out, across the front of the motor/motor mount plate had oil? on it.
Motor smells awfully metallic. Not burnt,...
Haven't cracked the motor to know for sure. But motor turns, shaft doesnt.
I have a buddy running the 2400...its flawless.
Ill run the 2400 if I have to.
Was going to try something different...
Slash 4x4, 3s. All required upgrades for 3s completed.
Bought a mmp esc a couple of weeks ago. Last week on the recommendation of lhs. I purchased a Novak 6.5t motor, 3800kv. Seemed like the...
