Anyone have those $60 brushless systems in there slash's? Are they any good?
I have one of them. Broke the esc within a month. I hit a tree battery strap broke battery went flying and yanked on the esc and it went up in smoke. It was my fault. Still use the motor behind my vxl esc when I dont run lipo. Little motor gets crazy hot on 3s. Been a good little motor though I have put it through just about everything and is just starting to get some bearing noise. It uses about half the amps a vxl does but puts out a amazing amount of power for half the amps. Alot easier on the nimh batteries. I have smoked 3 nimhs with the vxl now just gets them so hot.
Thx for the info..I just ordered a raptor for $210 shipped..good deal I think..he's lookin to see if he has any vxls sytems in stock..
leopard motors are good if you get the right size and use the right esc with it. have you considered hobbywing combos?
DEU 8:18 ESV
Yea..if I can get the vxl for $100..I'll probably get it..and the sell the stock motor esc and battery to make up the difference..
What would you suggest putting in a 2wd slash? I want to upgrade but need to do it on the cheap.
you can get the sidewinder sv2 and 4-pole 3800kv or 4600kv on ebay for like 120 free shipping thats what i when with runs great and great price too
What's the difference between the 3800kv and the 4600kv? I'm kinda green with electric
um me too but i believe the 4600kv would be a little fast but the 3800kv has a little more torque not 100%
The 4600 will have less torque, run a little hotter, need to be geared lower, and in my opinion, a better motor in a 2wd sc truck. The lower torque of the 4600 will give a little more throttle control compared to the hairy chested 3800. That is just my opinion though...
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
What gearing would you suggest for the 4600? I'm planning on ordering a Sidewinder Sv2 setup in the next couple weeks. I'm thinking about entering some races in the spring so please any info would be of help, I plan on running a Venom 5000 2c 7.4 volt Lipo so I know I have to take that into consideration when choosing the right gearing .......
Also, this might be a silly question but will the traxxas pinions fit on the Sidewinder shaft???
