4S + 2650 is crazy fast plus a real Amp-puller.

For racing, really consider the 1800 Castle motor instead. Great for buggies with 4S. Which is why Castle put out the motor after the initial batch of 2650+2200KV motors. You may have an lower-price offer to buy the 2650kv and is that why you're considering it? Why put the 80A ESC under pressure with a motor known to pull serious amps?

Thanks for the reply

I already traded for one so..

Do you think it would be better to run it in my Caster F8t truggy on 4s (150a)? is it light enough?

Thanks

Also, Alan. Is this the Tekin 2650 or CC 2650 your talking about?

"I race 2650kv using 4900mah 4s Lipo in my x2 buggy no problem. It's not too fast I geared 17/46.

U can gear it lower if it's too fast.

I used the 2000kv for my truggy with 4s. Plenty of torque n speed.

2650kv is smooth for buggy n 2000kv has enough torque for a heavier truck."


Thanks

No 4168 is 2250kv by hobbywing meant for buggy your 2650kv will be very fast for 4s. You can undergear it but if it spoils you have to bear the freight n repair cost to U.S which is not worth it.

You can try it in a buggy.

Yea I can try under gear it and set the EPA lower..Though still not sure if the 80a can handle it.. So wondering if I should put it in my 150a Truggy.. I see so many people running the 2650kv in Erevo's and Flux's..

Any opinions?
Thanks

I wouldn't. My ezrun 80 died after 3 total hours of run-time on a 1800kv 540 motor, just over a 100w motor, lol. Sure it might work, but for how long?

It is suggested to use a 120A or higher esc for that motor. If you haven't bought the esc yet go for a mamba max pro instead.

The Ezrun failures were due to problems unrelated to the current being drawn. The Xeruns are improved versions. The Xerun 80A will handle more than the MMP. Its an underrated ESC as HW didn't want it competing too closely to the 150A version. The FETs in the Ezrun version couldve easily handled more current than the ESC was marketed for. And the Xerun has more thermal mass than the MMP which is important for high power electronics.
With the 2650kv motor run it on 3s instead. 4s is spinning it too fast. Or as Alan suggkested the 4168SL 2250kv is a really nice buggy motor.
Regarding MTs running the 2650kv motor, MTs have much higher gearing so it helps take load off the motor. What runs well in a MT may not be as good in a buggy due to gearing diffs.

Interesting, thanks for the info. So what is the issue causing failure with the ezruns? If I send mine in for repair ( for the second time) will it just fail again?

bro theres no one who can guarantee any motor, esc, servo or batt that wont fail.

ezrun 80 & 150 is like mmm v1 software & hardware are not stable. look at even 1.1 car volvo & toyota they have their cars called back because of hardware problems.

I am having problem with my tekin 1/8 motor now can i say they are no good? No i think they are great but one day things will spoil esp off road.

i used to own 2 neu motors 90% efficiency but what happened?

they failed too, i was not happy with their service so i sold them away.

now i am trying to help you to get your ezrun fixed pls dun complain anymore its not helping anyone.

I wasn't complaining, I was asking the cause of the failures. The guy seemed to know what he was talking about. I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth my trouble sending it in, is it a serious design flaw or something that has been resolved so I can finally have a working esc.

its your call whether its worth it a not. I have sent many ezrun 80 n 150 all came back with no problems.

i suggest u either pm JSR or email me, not so nice to post at this thread,

btw i have helped JSR & a few other guys to send their esc for repair.

The guy was asking whether the esc will handle that motor or not. I was just posting my experience with that esc in effort to help prevent him from ruining his. If my failures were caused by something unrelated to the power handling then ok, my first post was unnecessary, but I still don't know the cause of the failures which is why I asked. If it's an inherently unstable esc then it wouldn't be such a good idea to push it to it's limits right? If it's a minor software issue or something which was resolved in newer versions then the OP should have no problems pushing it like that. I read about the FETs and everything before I bought that esc so I am not disagreeing with you guys about it's theoretical capabilities.
