it works, but obviously it aint no monster anymore. I did it to get a waterproof esc for bashing in snow and damp conditions, not really any puddle bashing and swimming haha. anyway i was surprised to see that it still had enough power to pull a wheely and hold it for a few feet but what i really noticed was the lack of top end speed. i assume that is because of only the one battery (traxxas nimh 7cell) ? is that right?
also i have another question for ya... can you under supply a motor of voltage? all the specs give max voltage inputs so i assume anything under isnt going to hurt anything. is that right?
The temps of both the motor and esc surprisingly also stayed low. even after minutes of bashing around in the grass the esc and motor could easily be touched. (i have no way of taking actual temps, all i know is they were a lot lower than what the motor and esc gets in my slash 2wd)
and before i get anybody responding back with remarks like i am crazy... i know that already. I WAS NOT EXPECTING ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO THE ORIGINAL POWER OF THE MONSTER. basically i was just doing it to see if it worked.
