    In general as long as your esc can handle the amperage the motor pulls, you are good to go mixing and matching.

    It is a high pitch squeal. It is pretty obvious when it happens. Go somewhere quiet, punch the throttle very briefly, and you'll hear it if it is loose enough.

    I just use the hose outside and let it dry with a fan pointed on it. I may try spraying down with simple green next time, I love that stuff. I'd never even considered using it on the truck!

    Do you have your slipper set properly? If you have it cranked down you can cause yourself all sorts of trouble.

    I have the Sidewinder in both my E-Revo and Summit. Just don't go crazy with the gearing on the Summit, and you should be fine.

    Yes really. Those aren't crimped connectors, they are soldered on. Solder "tins" copper, turning it silver in color.

    The stock motor mount has holes for the castle motors. You just need different screws as the threads on the titan are larger than the Castle holes.

    Ran the Summit this morning on the Sidewinder. Is it faster? YES! On the stock gearing, the tires balloon pretty bad at top speed. It also will roll over if you even think about turning it at...

    Brushless are more efficient, so you get better run times (at the same speed). So if you race it around like a bat out, then you get less run time. You should NOT use NIMH on the Sidewinder, use...

    Yes Castle says 11lbs, but frankly that is to cover their butts. This thing has tons of power, but YES you must monitor your temps. I haven't had any issues on the Revo with this motor, and the...

    It is sensorless, but supposedly with the updated firmware, the castle system does pretty well for sensorless. I'll have to try it before I know for sure. That link from horizon is exactly the same...

    I had mine at the beach with stock tires. If you have harder packed sand, it does fine, but in the deep loose stuff, I think paddles would have helped.

    I don't need something wicked fast, just something over the Summit's 20... If I can get the E-Revo to 35 I'll probably be happy. Maybe some day I'll want to go faster, but not yet.
