Hi guys, I just switched my e-revo over to the dewalt this weekend.
I am not sure what is considered acceptable temps. After 5 minutes of somewhat hard play my evx2 and motor were so hot I could only touch them for 3-5 seconds air temp was 73F (indoors where I played).
Here's the specs.
I bought a new 12v motor (old style) from ebay did all the mods to make it fit.
Water breakin (2C bats till dead)
Cut off the ears
Made 1/8" aluminum spacer
Soldered 2 power leads on each brush (no loose leads on evx 2)
Soldered on 3 - .1 Caps
21t - Pinion
68t - Spur
The pinion spur combo is pretty tight for the mounts. I either have to change the spur smaller or modify the motor mount to allow for larger adjustment.
I am running this on a couple 7 cell MiMh packs. Which were also really hot (could smell the heat)
Are my heat issues related to my packs not being able to sustain the amount of discharce the dewalt is asking for? I have a couple of GensAce 5000mah 2S 40C LiPo bats that I havent ever used. I needed to hook up the LVC first.
I intend to go brushless when the snow clears off. But I need a brushed setup too so I can enjoy this car year round since it's snowy for 5+ months of the year here.
Any advise is welcome.
