Nice touch holding the shocks with the wheel I never thought of that
I had to move my Rx and dremmel out the divider to fit in a 5000 mah 3s and get the battery expansion kit
Go with the 5400 mah 3s by traxxas that's all the bigger you'll need the xl5 won't hold up to 3s and make sure you get a good Lipo charger
I know it's a bad habit but my lipo charger doesn't have a discharge cycle I ran it for about 10 min and broke a stearing knuckle
You should be fine I stored my 3s for a week on almost a full charge
They just came out with a water proof mamba monster so I don't think it'll be long
Before I upgraded my 2wd pede to brushless I would put it in training mode and let my 2 year old drive it he loved it now that I run brushless he's afraid of it I'm gonna have to find a used rustler...
What gear ratio are you running and do you have any temp issues I'm looking at the same set up on my pede
Yeah the vxl3s
Please do take the time to read and understand the rules of the Market Place.
Thanks for the info I got it up and running with some tire glue didn't realize there are 2 pole and 4 pole escs that's exactly what it's doing I ran my lipo until I hit a tree and broke my front...
I thought the same thing about training mode so I reset it to make sure it was in sport
It had lots of power even on the 7 cell nimh it was practically uncontrollable on dry asphalt and when I could get traction on
grass it would pull a wheelie from half throttle
Thanks for the quick reply it seems way under powered now I pluged in the 3s and ran it about 5 min both the esc and motor
are new I've only ran 4 nimh packs with the new setup yes it is a four...
I'm new to the world of rc. But so far I love it I recently bought an xl5 2wd stampede off Craigslist have done several upgrades to it including a vxl3s and 4600 kv castle motor I put the 2 on a week...
