There is a great thread in the SUMMIT section on these batteries.
(I run them in my Summit and my ERBE)
ah yes... NOW I understand the pictures of a tie-rod going from the rear mount to the rear shock "tower"
WTH I cant edit old posts... ok
well, here are the pics
I have a ERBE (Zip) and a Summit (Flip). I've made a "few" mods :rolleyes: here and there, added a few parts, swapped a few things. Here are the current configurations:
***WILL add pics as...
just HAD to write a quick post on these SPC LiPo's
after the DeWalt motor and T-Bone skid plates (full set) upgrade to my Summit, my 5000/25C (2S) LiPo's really took a hit when it came to run...
the T-Bone skid plates DO reinforce the lower A-arm.
the inside bottom of the top part of the "sandwich" is milled around the outside creating a raised center that fills in the open area of the...
so "any" pinion gear with the description:
for 5mm Shaft
I've seen a few for 3mm shaft with different pitches but a stock ERBE is 32 Pitch with a...
The Summit in High gear with a 18T pinion and the Dewalt is a nice "step" down in speed from the ERBE (on 4s,5s or 6s) and then another "2 steps" down if you drop it into Low gear.
I'm letting my...
when is having too many Lego bricks to play and build with been a problem? ;)
could the EVX2 even survive 2x Dewalts?
it gets plenty hot** on just one.
i must admit, having an...
live and learn i guess
i havent been able to even get the traxxas[dot]com home page to load since that last post. :$#!!:
figured i'd post while i can, not that i have anything new to say :p
a fair question.
this hobby is still a little new to me and i wasn't too sure about doing the wiring on the motor, so I headed over to KD for a wired motor. Once i was there i saw the heat sink...
I'd have replied sooner but... i couldn't log in! :$#!!:
ahhh, much better!
whelp, there she is.
the wires off the motor are the same gauge as the wires out of the ESC
this motor mount raises the motor (and...
guys, you didnt tell me I'd be needing a 2nd mortgage in a few months :eek:
but i wised up THIS time... (shhhh don't tell: buy USED ;))
WARNING do NOT charge LiPo packs in the...
yup, i've been practicing no wheelie bar wheel stands and the wife is trying to master (too) high speed turning; weight transfer and lateral G's just arn't her thing.
Thus Flip has been doing a fair...
been kicking the "Name my Summit" question around as i drive the truck.
i thought i had it narrowed down to two possible names.
DeWall-E (Dewalt motor should be here soon. 14.4V + 18T)
well, i took the motor out for a quick cleaning and figured i'd shoot a pic of the brush...
you can really make out the "3 fingers" of contact
that look "ok"??
this whole getting old (responsible) thing sucks.
as a father of a 5 Y/O, all i could think while watching was: where is she running off to? how close to the road? who else is watching her?
who can stop and take pics when your having so much fun!?
i can now see just how addicting speed is with these things, but i think the Summit is plenty fast for the space i have to play in.
many of the brushes Ive changed before, mostly in PorterCable routers, came pre curved to all but match the O.D. of the commutator. I was surprised @ the shape of the Titan's brushes. i assume it...
considering how slow it was going and the gradual increase in surface (contact) area I'm thinking a "full" break-in will take 4-6 hours of run time. is that a good guesstimate?
Just wanted to get the virgin post over and done with (be gentle please) and say hello and thanks to all of you here. Ive been lurking for a few weeks doing research but now that i have been through...
