You can try it if you don't believe me, but have your CC ready to order a new ESC and motor. My advise... Let the truck sit until you get the right setup, you will be scratching your head trying to get it to work. Plus save your motor and ESC.
i dont think it will be that bad, were talking only .27 kg !! how much is this in pounds? anybody else want to voice a pinion here

so what kind of run times are you getting with 1410 motor and what esc?

i have 5000 Mah at home but not sure if they will make a 10 minute main on a small track ?

There is a similar issue with the caps on the losi 22. Threads are machined too loose to the shock body threads and a couple oil changes in stripped out.

FYI i race against 1 with the combo your talking about every week

15 second lap times on a small indoor track here cooked the esc two weeks ago and has to run 2 fans on his motor to keep temps livable

so yes its doable to a degree but why not get the 1410 motor of ebay for $60 and a MMP or RX8 and be safe ? these trucks are a tank and require 1st class electronics IMO

oh yeh the VXL motor is working that hard a 5800 mah pack only lasts 11 minutes tops

food for thought

You've been given good advice that you apparently want to ignore.

We love to hear about people smoking their motors/ESCS when they use an inappropriate setup. [sarcasm]

So go for it and then share your sorrow here. [more sarcasm]

The 22 caps have had issues. The aluminum caps for the TEN are made elsewhere so the issue is not the same. If someone got a bad one, then a quick call to customer service will take care of it. I havent heard of any issues with the aluminum caps, although many asked for holes in them, so the next batch will have the bleader holes.

You all keep asking, I keep updating...love the feedback.

Nice to know companies are listening to the user end. Hacker07 is there a time frame when those will be back in stock? also the rear hubs?

You guys explain things better than the maunal does.
The torque setting is designed to help spinouts and works pretty good in limiting torque which is the contributor to spinouts. This can help on really loose tracks.
Throttle curve can help smooth out the power delivery as it relates to the actual position of the throttle.
The RX8 has preset throttle curves and if you can mimic them on the MMP.
I prefer using a softer throttle curve over the torque control as it makes it smoother on the bottom end and still lets it rip on the top end which IMO is a better fix to spinouts on a loose track.
I have tried torque control enough to be able to say that it feels like I have set an EPA on the throttle which as the cycle of the pack gets lower I have less throttle than if my EPA was still @ 100%.
Either way it is good to try these things and get a feel for it as these settings can take a sensorless motor to a whole different level and you'll think your wheeling a sensored motor in no time.
I almost forgot, I would not use punch control and torque control at the same time. Only use one or the other.

The closest stock springs to what we ran would be gold up front and black in the rear.

Awesome Thanks for the sheets I have my diffs sitting on my bench I just filled them with new fluid and Added the Hardened Pins, I think I will have to open them back up before I install them and put the 5-5-3 in them I had 3-3-5 but I think ill try that set up instead. My original pins were starting to show some where just a few thousandths but better safe than sorry. Now if I could only afford some Carbon Fiber, and aluminum hubs things would be perfect lol.

.27kg is .6lbs

But the difference is a lot more than that. A stock Losi SCTE with 550 motor and normal sized battery is between 6.8 and 6.9lbs My slash when I had it was 5.7 lbs with a 550 motor, so the difference is more like .5kg. I know for a fact that that much weight is a HUGE difference, or at least all the electronics thinks so

You could run that settup if you want, just make sure you spend a ton of $$$ and time to lighten the SCTE up by about a pound first With A LOT of work, you can get the SCTE down around 6lbs flat, ready to hit the track.

I'm running the 3800 4 pole castle with a mmp esc, also using 5000 30c batterys. Right now I'm getting max 8 minutes of run time. But I suspecT the batteries are about done. I've ran them for about a year.
