    Makes sense then why the lower KV motors have more torque, more amperage for less RPMs.

    I don't understand all the ins and outs with the motors, but I understand the lower the KV the more torque and higher KV is faster RPMs right? What is the battery limitation as a result of a motors...

    Guys what do you think of this guys motor and esc combo?
    I don't need more speed but he claims drop in motor and ESC for the MERV and 75mph. He mentions the VXL ESC the MERV has is under-powered /...

    Tried the recal thing several times to no avail. And I replaced my stock TQ with a TQI transmitter for the telemetry, both had identical poor braking. Changing the ESC seems the best plan for me. The...

    Oh OK, I have the VXL Brushless one. It accelerates like crazy esp. with 3S Lipos inside. Too much power for the drive train - I've had to shim the differentials like many people have, and it...

    Oh no mine would have ran you over :) much worse, tires make no noise during full braking, just a slight whine from the motor and it slowly stops. I even have all the telemetry gizmos on it and there...

    Mini E-Revo crappy braking power

    OK so I know this has been brought up before, haven't seen an answer or solution yet. The mini E-Revo has pretty bad braking power, even when I didn't have another RC vehicle to compare it to (aside...

    Thanks...

    If I'm lucky I'll maybe see a little drop in temperature when running on grass as krallopian mentioned. If temps get high too quick too often a 2S Lipo change might be my future. Then...

    What is considered too high a temperature on the brushless 380 motor and stock ESC? I see temps as high as 160 degrees F running on stock tires and 2S Lipos and I give it a rest after that.

    Ah, OK sorry I must have misread then, I saw 1.8 somewhere on the sidewall of my stock tires and assumed it was the tire diameter. It's printed very small and it's got some wear on it.

    That would be perfect then, going by mtc777's calculations since the new tires are 2.2" and the stock Talons are 1.8", the math comes to right under 23. Thanks Jimmie, I think I should change pinions...

    How many teeth is the "high speed" stock pinion gear for the MERV? I may have to dig for it and install it now. You know, the one they include when you want to run two NiMH packs in series? Would...

    Dang I didn't even think of that, I have RTV also, vs. paying $12 for plasti dip. Plus that is much quicker and easier, why seal the plastic parts that don't need sealing. Plus that silicone RTV...

    Did you bother to waterproof it with plasti dip? Seen a couple youtube videos on guys doing that, plus they stuck marine grease on top the gears before sealing it up. Seemed to be a...

    I'll likely have to go with someone small as you've mentioned... even if it's not 720p, I'd trade a little quality for being able to fit it on the MERV and also view in real time. But certainly...

    I figured the added height would help a little, being that the cars can hide behind tall grass, etc. I agree the internal wiring won't account for much receiving.
