If yours is one of the Expert Built RTR TL01's then yes you will need a new speed controller. The mechanical one will not handle that motor. The plus side is that you will loose alot of weight and the car will be faster.

I think you should go to Ebay and look for a decent 2nd hand Novak GT7 ESC (it has no motor limit and was a top novak ESC till a few yrs ago)...

i dont think a TL01 can handle that motor, better check the motor gearing first. try upgrading a ball bearings and speed tuned gear set hope it works.

If you are going for a low turn motor keep the standard gears in there, the speed tuned ones will kill the motor on the first run

bearings are a must have upgrade

If you do have a mechanical speed controller you will have to remove the servo, speed contoller and resistor.

As far as a ESC I would recommend the Novak GTS. It's pretty much the same as their GTX but has a 12 turn motor limit. Most ESC's just have one button to program them to your radio.

Hope this helps

Red face let me see??

OK the car is stock and the motor i brought is a 19x2 so its not a crazy motor(its a venom one).

i brought a 15 turn limit esc with forward break and reverse (couldnet live without reverse) i want to get the barrings kit but i have the manual but it looks a fair job stripping down the car and replacing them. any tips, (and are the bearings on ebay that cost under a tenner GBP any good their metal)

as for the gears i want acceleration for drifting and outrunning my mates car not so much top end so will the standard bearrings be ok???

the car came running with a TECHNIPLUS controller and the esc supposidly will be fine with that?? is that true??

this is my esc i brought any ideas??
Mtroniks Sonik4 RV15 ESC (Fwd/Brake/Reverse,15t Limit)

also what other hop up will improve power that is fairly cheap and easy to install??

cheers for the help kris

(this is my car the shell has had a beating but the rims look minted 8)

the bearing kit you mention... if its the Walawala store ones... they'll be fine Just for the time being, don't take the greese out. It's a comon racers trick for a freer running car, but it can reduce the life of the bearing.
