I want to know how long the stampede can run on 3s lipo without smoke from esc or motor :-)
How long is a lifetime on vxl motor and esc?
I have get a genace 3s 4000mh battery and after i have use that, then i think its boring to use the car on 2s.
My stampede have been run about 30 hours on 2s, maby thatswhy i not think its give enough speed anymore.
I use 3s now, the only upgrade on the truck is the little alu piece on the clutch. The car is stock, i use it with care, never give full speed from start, maby 30-40 mph before i give full trottle and i havent broke a driveshaft yet!
Motor gets real hot because i use 17/54 gear, but when its almost burn hot i take 5 minutes brake, i drive it about 10 minutes before the motor get a bit hot, esc are never more than 33 celsius and i use a traxxas fan to the esc.
I have reed that many smoke the esc on 3s after some time?
So how is your experiance with the vxl system on 3s?
So powerfull and fun to drive, a sunday is never long anymore :-)
Good to know, so far i have run it about 9-10 times on 3s, the only thing is when i connect the battery the esc is on lipo cutoff and led is red, when i turn it off and on again the led is green and good to go. This happend before i ever run it on a full charged battery.
