hi guys i finally got a brushless system for my xl-5 rustler and want to know some good gearing setups . i run 25/86 and the motor gets fairly warm so does the Esc but i can hold it for at least 5-7 seconds . I'm looking for a bit more speed I'm running a onyx 6 cell 5000mah nimh battery what do you guys recommend
I'm interested in seeing what people recommend. I am getting the same Castle setup today and I only have stock gearing right now w/ 2s 5800mah lipo.
Law #29: Plan all the way to the end.
I have the sidewinder/3900kv duratrax motor (made by castle) and I think your gearing is right on. You could go to a 83t spur and a 2s lipo for more speed. But that nimh is really holding you back.
Get a temp gun to keep a better eye on the motor temps. 5-7 seconds sounds like 120-130F but its hard to tell.
My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
yeah its a little slow for me i so have a temp gun but need to find it how hot would it run at 2s or 3s i want to go 3s but i heard it will run quite a bit hotter any info on that
after weeks of having my 3800 sidewinder i set my punch control to 25 %.
I was suprised to see the battery temps went donwn, the esc is cooler , my motor only gets to about 130 degrees. with large buggy tires geared 83/ 26.
I was getting around 150 degrees on the motor with 83/23 gears on 3 s. with zero punch control
i think the 3800 is really too powerful and draws crazy amps . My slipper clutch / driveshafts are lasting longer too.
Really suprised about this . I do have a aluminum gearbox though

I agree my spc 3s 25c lipo drops voltage a bit on this set up. my 40c 5,000 has no problem
