I guess I should buy a new motor and esc? Or do you guys think that the esc is ok if it doesn't get hot without the motor plugged in, it turns the steering servo and doesn't get hot, untill the motor...
Kool sabertooth I'll look that up. Thanks yea I have the brushless version guys, no brushed motors don't with the 3m esc.
The negative fell off the esc. I believe that fried the motor maybe. The esc comes on fine plugged up to the traxxas battery. It doesn't get hot.
I have 3m not 3s figured that out. No brushed mode...
Me to lol it's cool.
I think that voids the warranty maybe.
Idk really. My plug came off on the esc on one side, and I soldered it back. I'm not amazing at soldering but I'm ok. Maybe too much resistance or something. Not really sure.
What motor? And motor plus esc? The esc may have got hurt but doesn't seem broke or anything when the motor is disconnected. Safe to plug a new one in it you think?
Thank you guys for the help and info. Much appreciated. Do you think I should buy a new motor or both motor and esc?
I had that crossed up. Between the two.
I'm wrong thinking wrong nimh is red light batteries not motor lol yall are right.
Red light constant is brushed mode I thought. I may be wrong like I said idk
It has a brushed mode, so I assume it can. Idk really tho, was about to read the PDFs manual on it if I can find it.
Ahh really. Thank you for the info. I will just get another velineon motor I guess. Any other brushless motors that are cheap and effective with the vxl? And if I just buy a new motor and not a new...
And my velineon motor fried, I think. I think my esc is ok, I assume. It gets hot fast when the bad motor is plugged up, but seems to work fine unplugged from it, the wheels turn and it doesn't heat...
This thread helps me with my question a little. I'm wondering, Can I run the vxl with a brushed motor and a 3s battery without pushing too much current or whatever through the brushed motor(Titan 12t...
Can I use a Titan 550 motor with the vxl-3m esc? It has brushed mode right? And can I use my 3s traxxas power cell batteries(one at once) with a brushed motor, or is that too much for it?
Can I use a Titan 550 with the vxl-3m esc? It has brushed mode right? And can I use my 3s traxxas power cell batteries with a brushed motor, or is that too much for it?
So my new question is what is the best and cheapest brushed motor to get by on till I can get a new velineon motor? Will research but an answer would be cool.
Well I just read a thread about it and I guess you really can't since they are ac and brushless.
Any way to test the motor?? Need help still. My truck is still broke.
Do you think it's the motor? I'll probably just buy both then. I guess I need to hook it up to a different esc to test the motor? Any other way?
I'm getting closer to figuring it out.. maybe I have. Thank yall for the help
Oh my. So I unplugged the motor and hooked up a battery and the esc doesn't even get hot. The green light comes on and it looks fine. I think it is fine and the motor is what has burnt.
Thanks for yalls help. I appreciate it.
At rest, it won't move just the motor jerks or cogs or whatever u call it and now the esc and motor get hot fast when I plug it up, so sounds bad huh? I think...
I did the best I could making them solder joints so small to fit inside the plug. They hold pretty good onto the wire, but idk. I might get some new traxxas plugs maybe on the Internet soon and try...
