Default Kyosho Tf-5

Hi,

i might be planning to get the 3.5T LRP X11 Motor and 2s lipos...

I wanted to put the 3.5T sensored motor into the Traxxas VXL-3s esc. as far i know the sensored will work..

i heard using 3s lipo can blow up the VXL esc, so is that true or not?

If i put a faster motor in the tf-5 stock, will the diff inside get badly damaged?

thanks

Don't run such an electronic setup in a shaft driven car. The ride will handle poorly because of the torque steer and your drivetrain will wear out like nothing else..

If you really insist of that kind of electronics then get yourself a belt driven chassis.

i see, but the 3.5T will work with the esc and the 3s lipo cos the esc might burst?

lower number of turns in a motor makes a esc hotter?

I don't know about the 3s lipo combined with the Traxxas esc. That a lower turns motor makes the esc hotter is a fact
