    Bluebird and those who must not be named (check your pms) are the top choice. Savox is awesome if you must stay water resistant and don't want to waterproof them yourself. Personally i run dual...

  6. Day old Erevo making terrible grinding noise when throttle is applied

    Did it make this noise out of the box or did it start after driving it for a while?Take the gear cover off so you can see the pinion and spur. Try to spin the spur gear(larger one) with your...
  7. Mamba Micro Pro ESC + Neu 1105/2y + 2S and/or 3S

    The speed controller itself is basically a dynamic resister already. I'd have to say that wouldn't work, but I don't have an electrical degree. Your best bet to not burn up your electronics is to...

    Merv Battery Choice

    Personally I think their packs are very over priced. I'd suggest spc packs. Been running my current set for 5 years on my bb mini revo and my neu mini revo. Zero problems for me and they are a middle...

    Those numbers for the motors are max power recommendations. It means that properly geared you shouldn't be pulling more than "400w". If overgeared it will pull more possible damaging equipment. I...

    Of course the voltage will sag too much if geared that high(65+), try the recommended 23/50 gears for that voltage on the stock system. From your talk of 65mph I take it you got aftermarket...

    Never kept a running total on it but from the prices I think I remember, the total is a touch under $1500 as it sits in the pictures. Expensive hobby but you gotta pay to play.
