Sorry one more question about the X11, does anyone know if its a problem to cover the spare screw holes on the mounting plate of the motor. Im thinking it would be better not to have them open to prevent dust from getting into the can.

Does anyone know where I can pick up one of the TC Spheres? (80750) Everyone seems to be out.

Thanks!

If you don't mind dealing with Hong Kong, www.rcMart.com has them. One issue with going that way is that Associated (USA) will not service them.

Thanks for the ifo Bill, but I'd really like to stay in the U.S. I just don't know about buying overseas.

That's why I added the second sentence to advise you. Wasn't an issue with the LRP I got from them; but, it was a major pain with another brand item that failed on me.

Default OK maybe someone has seen this

So I sent in my ESC and they being Associated returned it. It is a 2007 Sphere comp. It ran fine and checked out for htem and then ran 2 good qualifiers and then stopped. What it is doing is after you pull trigger randomly it will stop and the red/yellow lights come on as you pull trigger and it will not enguage the motor brand new 6.5 x-11 untill I rotate the spur and poof will work again until it locks up. So has anyone seen this and what is the issue, because I don't want to sent it back if there is nothing wrong. I am running a m-11 with spektrum a x-11 6.5 turn motor a cap in the esc and the sphere comp. It is very wierd.

The red/yellow tell you something is wrong and its purpose is stopping anything worst from happening ...


Your motor would be the first thing to rule out ..
switch it out with another first....

I have a 2006 Sphere Comp/X-11 6.5 in my truck and I had to turn the throttle exp down to -15% or -20% (can't remember) to get the motor to run smoothly from a dead stop. You might want to try that out before you send it in...
