I've had a slash for about a year, and got a VXL system recently, plopped it in the truck and have been running 18/86, which is the stock gearing. The weird thing is that, even with a stupid 6cell I'm getting temps with the motor that I can hardly touch for 3 seconds, which, apparently, is the safety limit. I've also been running it with an Intellect 4600 7cell, and getting around the same temps(I don't have a temp gun). It may be because of my right rear axle which has burnt fishing line wrapped around between the left rear hub and hex(long story
), but that's all I can think of.
So if you can tell me whats going on, it'd be... great.
