Hi everyone, I am having no end of problem with My TA03F lately mostly with melting things such as my new 11x3 Motor.
Before i go into the details i would like to hear from any one running a TA03F, with the standard black gears which came with the car, as well as a fast motor such as a 11turn or less. What i want to know please is what size pinion you are running with these motors to keep them from burning up?????
Now here is what happened
I ran the car today with my first pack every thing seemed to be ok. Five to Ten minutes later i ran my second battery pack and it ran out of steam rather quickly after approx 1 minute. I picked up the car and noticed that the motor was smoking and that the plastic around the brush housing had melted. Also the brush housing/ heatsink etc had come away from the top of the endbell causing the brush on one side to be twisted and welded to the commutator.
Oh what joy i said
as I headed home to further inspect the damage.
When i got home i noticed also that the solder on the negative wire on my deans plug for my battery had also melted and the wire had shifted almost off before cooling and setting again.
Now I suspect one of two things happened
1)i did have a front ender into the gutter which may have damaged the endbell. (seems a little unlikely to me)
Or 2) My car is not geared properly and the motor just overheated.
I was running a 11x3 motor with a 19tooth pinion and my car has the standard black gear cogs that come with this car.
Any constructive advice would be much appreciated.
