what should i adjust to fix my problem i ran it for about two minutes on a 5000mah 7 hump pack and it died i go to look at it and the battery/motor/esc was supper hot
im also on w/e spur gear game with it and a 17t pinion gear and i have a 12t pinion gear if that matters
You are probably using a too heavy gearing causing motor and ESC getting hot. Try the 12T pinion and see if that improves. The NiMH pack might not be fit to the task and gets hot because of that.
Are you using a temp gun? If not, that might be a wise purchase to be sure about the exact temperatures. The motor may get hot to the touch, but still be in safe temp ranges (stay below 180F).
Nobody is born with experience
the velineon was in a 2wd and it never got to hot then i put it in the 4x4 and i run it 2 mins and the motor esc are burning hottttt and it melted my battery wire connecter together the traxxas attatchment
Running in 2WD truck is easier for the motor to work. 4WD is times two the load. 17T pinion is for speed runs only.
I think your confused. The 2wd has a stock 19t pinion but the 4wd has a 11t pinion stock. Your geared way to high.
You also need to bear in mind the 2wd used 48pitch gears and the 4wd uses 32pitch....
well the hobby guy said the 17t would make my battery last longer and go faster nothing about that but i have a 12t so i guess i should put that 1 in but when i called today they said that somthing might be slipping so if any one else has any opinions let me know please
There is no way you can run a 17t pinion without overheating the electronics, I would say 9-11t, second I would Try with a different batt.
well ill try my 12t cuz the nearst hobby shop is an hour away so not really that fun of a ride
btw it is brand new roller prebuilt all i had to do was get the reviever/remote i had a motor and esc so should i have to adjust the slipper clutch also i think it is i think its under the protective clear plastic on the driveshaft?
the motor still works luckly i put the 12t on it now so ill run it tomarow if it stops raining and ill see if thatdoesnt help guess ill ahave to mess with it more
17 is not for serious off road use IMO. I only run that on speed runs on pavement.
alright thanks guys i believe its all good now i put the 12t in it adjusted my slipper clutch and rewired my damaged battery so it all runs good now ran 2 packs through it did fine didnt cut off like it did before. and rob or any one else that can answer whats a heat sink and for cutting holes would cutting with he sticker grill be enough or should i do something in the windshield
