Very wrong. A LiPo pack puffed enough to crack a hardcase is DAMAGED and DANGEROUS whether it can be charged or not. Even Great chargers will charge bad packs.
Center driveshaft is plastic. Front drive hub is molded into the plastic driveshaft. I suggest 6888X for the steel version. And I'd get an aluminum driveshaft too.
Differentials are geared...
Where did you get new SPC LiPos? They've been out of the battery business for a while.
Large brushless motor system, substandard wiring and connections, low power batteries. What could go wrong? Your post answered your own question.
Are you positive that this is the case with the MXL-6S, a twin of the Mamba Monster 2?
As mentioned, it is normal, but does cause wear on the connectors. Alluded to above, the higher the voltage, the bigger the "pop."
I think the Traxxas name is "definitely" already out "there."
@ Super Z's "enough" claim... there is definitely NEVER enough - there is always somewhere else to place resources, whether you are a...
That last bit's a tough one, lol. Is it anything like West New York?
Taking bets on how long it will be until Squeegie converts the fans to working cooling units. :lol:
@ black can: it isn't a Castle motor. I also reduced drag brake to 10%. I have my Summit geared very low, so the drag brake effect is pronounced.
No jerkiness that is not caused by transmission slop...
I thought we've been through this more than once already. Please heed what was written previously. Be patient and realize that answers come in "yes," "no," and "wait a while" forms.
Thank you for the info. :)
New MMX and 4274 2250kv sensored motor:
Crawls as well as brushed but runtime and power are increased to the extreme....
This idea could have been expressed in a much more positive manner.
Perhaps they were just playing the odds.
Because the EVX-2, unlike other, more recent ESC's, puts the batteries in series internally. It has a BEC side and a non-BEC side, hence the two sets of power wires. The BEC only receives power from...
And hope that the 2S-rated BEC doesn't go "POOF!" and release the magic smoke.
I was referring to the battery to charger connection, not the wall outlet.
Also while you're in there check that the front center drive hub is secured tightly to the slipper clutch shaft.
I think I remember that sometimes it just takes a more secure connection. In other words, make sure the connectors are pushed together tightly.
Just superglue the cuts and keep rolling.
You should have the same options as on the Mamba Monster 2.
I thought the same.
How about Traxxas Java? (Coffee GOOD.)
Or Traxxas Kilimanjaro?...
There's a bit of giggling that can go along with being a new Summit owner.
Yes, 4-pole motors are typically "notchy."
It is interesting that he was driving it in a parking lot at Traxxas HQ in McKinney, TX.
