basically i need help with what esc and motor combo to go with.its a 4x4 vxl but he keeps burning up the vxl 3s esc and he wont do it again.so what water proof combo kinda cheap that can run on 3s would you recommend?
if you want waterproof and cheap the vxl 3s is about your only option. a great combo would be the castle creations mamba monster 2 with 2400kv motor. you shouldnt have any problems with heat with that combo
The hobby wing is good. The castle sidewinder SV3 is also waterproof, and much better than the SV2 they had before. It's good up to 3S. Either one would work well.
I just run a Mamba Max Pro, and coat it with liquid tape to add water resistance. No issues yet.
I was having the same issue and I chose the Mamba monster 2 with a 2650kv motor. Have not ordered it yet, but it will be waay overpowered
thank you all for your help but i guess i should of added that his 8 year old son will be driving it too and if it was mine i'd go for the mm2 combo but i know he wont spend that much money on it
Castle recommends 2s as the maximum cell count when using the Sidewinder V3 and a 1410 3800kv motor.
From Castle Support:
The Sidewinder V3 can run the 1410 3800kv motor in most short course setups, but cannot run the 1415 motor.
So the The Sidewinder 3 would not be able to handle 3s LiPo, but 2s will work with a 1410 3800kv motor. I would not go this route with the Stampede 4x4.
ok cool i have that set up in a rustler vxl and i only run it on 3s and the only problem i had was it has so much torque if i pulled the trigger all the way i snapped and axle until i put mip's in it. is there a hobbywing combo that will run this truck?i have a 120amp wp sc8 and a sl 3656 4000kv combo i bought like a year ago will that work for the truck.i really bought that kit just for the wp sc8 esc.or could i put the 120 amp esc and the velenion 3500 stock motor.i am mainly into the erevos so this is new to me
does anyone know if i can run the stock 3500 motor off the hobbywing sc8 esc on 3s?
The stock motor seems to fit this description well.Input:
- 6-12 cells NiMH/NiCd or 2-4S Lipo
- Sensorless Brushless Motor
Suitable Brushless Motor:
- With 6 cells NiMH/NiCd or 2S Lipo: KV≤6000;
- With 7-9 cells NiMH/NiCd or 3S Lipo: KV≤4000;
- With 10-12 cells NiMH/NiCd or 4S Lipo: KV≤3000;
- 1/10 4WD SCT, 1/8 2WD and 4WD buggy/SCT (Include TRAXXAS 1/10 SCT)
