Default TA05 and SXX

Hello all,

Does anyone here use SXX TC Spec in your TA05?

I have recently installed the new SXX, running X12 4.5T, Lipo 30C 5000 and gear ratio 10.25. The esc smoked up after couple runs. I didn't find anything wrong with the gear ratio. So wondering if you have used SXX in your TA05 and what motor and gear ratio to use for my references before I put the replacement into TA05 again.

Thanks.

Yes, I got the SXX TC instead of SXX. It should handle 4.5T fine.

sometimes escs can go for no reason. maybe you were moving your servo a ton, that can sent electricity to the esc and when you turn it on it will fry. the tc edition is made for 4wd vehicles and works in 2wd.

This is the time you can see how LRP support can do....if you are indeed using the SXX TC that can support the 4.5 motor and you are indeed running 10.25 final drive...it must be the speedo problem.

Your final drive is fine...TA05 has nothing to do about it, but you have to understand that electronics will fries for sometime NO REASON....contact LRP and see what they can do for you....

When buying speedo/electronics....tech and customer support is a major factor.

henery,
Is this a new TA05, stock not a R kit? If so I'm having the same problem. I've fried 6 ESCs, 5 Tazers and 1 Tekin Fxr. The LHS has checked out everything and has no idea why it's happening. I've found some info here on the forum in reference to a static problem for which a grounding strap from the motor mount to the front or rear damper stay should fix. I'm waiting for a new ESC to see if it works.

I have heard about static buildup, it happens a lot on carpet apparently. What I would do is take a short piece of 18 gauge wire, strip it of its insulation, wind it round one of the screws that holds the motor mount in and screw it in. It should work to ground it.

I would say, the spec are for guide line only, Infer-red temperature gun are always your best friend when dealing with brushless
