The way I understand it is the MosFets on the circut board are switching on and off many times a second as they work , the slower you go the faster they switch (or is it slower ?) . This causes heat to build up .

So limiting the throttle with the TX can cause the ESC to heat up , or so I have heard .

The 2 most used sizes are 3/32 and 5/64 but I like to use a 2mm instead of the 5/64 as I think its a tighter fit .

There are also a few 1/16 size screws as well.

MY feeling is this. if you set your transmitter to 80% and your racing and all of a sudden you need extra speed going down the straight you have it in your hand and finger, just my thoughts I like to go fast. don't tell me to slow down to get faster laps. when your whipping my ass on the track..
I completely hear what you're saying.

I have a slightly different take:

If you're spending most of your time at the 1-85% throttle range, then reducing the EPA on your throttle to say 90% removes that top 10% from the range and applies it back to the range you're actually using (and note that does not mean 10% of your top end is taken off). So you simply extend the throw of your 1-90% range.

What you're doing is not making your car slow down necessarily. In effect, you're making the throw of your trigger longer thus smoothing out the acceleration and braking of your car, making it smoother, thus run faster.

So you aren't going faster by slowing down, you're going faster by being smoother.

Our fingers and throw are at a finite quantity. Adding 10% articulation is a significant amount.

1mm and 3mm are not used on anything I am aware of. Might want a 1.5mm and 2.5mm though.

There is no use for a 1.0 or a 3.0mm and the diffs use a 1/16 driver not a .050

Yes it is std but always good to have a full set of metrics on hand in case you get a 22 series car!

I seriously wish Losi would stop using SAE sizes and go all metric , they dont strip as easily and they are easier to find at hardware stores IMO .
