Not that I am aware of :-/
Everything in the drivetrain appears to be smooth as silk so I'm kinda stumped for ideas.
Slightly sad that it has to be slower than I want it...
Ok with a 19T pinion 83T spur my temps reached 150F on 2s. Ambient was probably around 73F.
I tried driving half throttle for a while and the temps were the same as driving pretty much flat out.
I have frequently ordered with the cheapest shipping from Towerhobbies (not registered, no tracking number). Nothing has ever been lost so far, it just takes a bit longer than the more...
I shall lower my pinion and see how it goes
That's kinda what I thought. Friends of mine have the Pede VXL and they running standard gearing on 2s and theirs stays cooler in the same driving conditions
Thanks for the help people :)
This is on 2s BTW. I have a 19t pinion so I might try that, but then it's going to be rather slow...
Anyway, it just seems regardless of how I drive (acceleration etc) it always seems to get that...
So I've had my Rustler VXL for a few months now and just about every time I drive it the motor temp gets to at least 160F if not a bit more.
My gearing is 23/83, the drivetrain is smooth...
Well I guess it's not really fair saying don't buy that ESC, as plenty of the Castle ones have also gone up in smoke.
Perhaps it was just a faulty one from the start.
Interesting, my ESC is still working pretty well considering it now has the 2200 motor on it.
1 way bearing?
Hows the motor running?
Well when I run my VXL on the standard gearing and 2s then it seems to run between 150-160F.
Wasn't too happy about it, but I changed the pinion a couple of teeth less and now it seems to max out at...
It's quite a lot of fun to convert as well
I think if one is careful with slipper settings and the amount of cells the drivetrain should hold up ok.
Here is my 2.5 conversion. I have a new battery tray now, as the battery tried to escape...
Thanks for the reply.
I tried 2 different multimeters, the one was a Fluke.
I was having some issues that the car would just stop responding to the radio that is why I started investigating this....
It would seem my problem went away by itself. Hopefully it doesn't creep back later...
I'm skeptical of the rating of 200A continuous that Traxxas gives, however I'm using a 120A continuous controller with the Castle 2200kV and all seems well.
Well if Traxxas's specs are true then I think the ESC should be fine
Then I need to find a iPhone or iPod as well haha.
Perhaps my local hobby store will be willing to let me update in their store or something.
Yep both TQi.
I shall have to ask around about the dock, maybe there is someone that can help.
I see there are people who have experienced similar problems and they have sent their stuff back to...
Nope it's a ******* 120A short course ESC with a Castle 2200kV.
Just want to see if even other ESCs do it, doesn't necessarily have to be the same brand
I have about a 3 week old Rustler VXL with the new TQI radio.
On multiple occasions I have been driving for about 5 - 10 minutes and the car will just stop responding to both throttle and...
I found something quite strange with my ESC. When it is not plugged in to the receiver I can measure with a multimeter 0.5V between the signal wire and ground. Is this normal?
