I need help with my speed control and my gearing on a mvp stock motor
i have an explorer II (novak) i know i know it's really crapy but my keyence fried(120.00)! ok back to the topic. when i turn on the controler and then the speed controller the speed control light turns to black and it makes this whistiling sound! is it suppose to do that? because when i use to have my tc2 and keyence it never did that! they just stayed at red and waited until i do something like throttle or turn. about my motor if u want to help me then go to the need help with motor and batteries posted by me with 17 replies. i have about 3 questions there! basically i have a mvp motor and i want to gear it right so that it won't heat up and won't drain my 3000 battery so that it can last longer then 5 mintues! my gearing is 100 th. spur gear, and 38 th. pinion. all 64 pitch. the motor gets really hot. should i gear so that the overall ratio be like 6.5-7?
