I am currently working on a daddy, daughter project in hopes of getting my Revo back from my daughter. She has taken a huge interest in running my car. So I have found a fairly inexpensive roller, that I plan on building up with her to run along side of me. Mine is brushless, that I put in training mode along with the nimh batteries for her to run it.
Since I skipped over the brushed version, and I am planning on doing hers as brushed for now, what gearing are run in them? What can the traxxas brushed esc handle battery wise? For right now I only want the car doing about 20mph, and a long run time.
I already have the steering servos, and receiver and radio, just need to get the esc and motors to get it moving.
Any other info would be appreciated.
The brushed version run dual titan motors. If you are building up, go directly with brushless so you don't need to get a dual motor mount.
Unless you can find a brushed motor powerful enough to run a single brushed motor.
I was hoping to try and keep cost down. However with a stock brushless set up, running the 18/54 gearing on 4s in training mode should get the 20 mph speed I am hoping to achieve for her, and it is how she is running it now.
Yeah, or slow it down even more with the 65T spur.
If your brushless only does 20 mph with 18/54 I think something is not right with your truck. I am running 18/65 and it does 30-35mph easy!
Bearings and driveline bind can be a serious cause of reduced overall speed. The brushless motors need regular cleaning and maintenance as well.
