I'll go ahead and get a low profile.

I'm trying to pick up a stock spec from this one guy. He has the USB to come with it which is cool. I have two lrp in my 1/10 offload. A tc and comp spec. It'll be cool to keep it in the family!

From what I've found In off road, you need a cap if using spectrum receivers with high current servos. Once I went to airtronics, problem solved.

Do 17.5 require a heatsink on motor?

Thx
I would run a capacitor. My KO servo will kill the car if I try to steer without one (Spektrum).

The Reflex Racing fan mount fits perfect. Don't use a heatsink. Airflow hits the front of the motor, so point the fan towards the backside of the motor, since that side doesn't get air-cooled.

Do yourself a favor and put the fan on... blowing on the motor... run for 6 minutes.. then temp it... Then do the same with the fan pulling the hot air off the motor... YOU decide what is better.


I run mine blowing on the the motor, it is the most effective for me.

The Muchmore fans are too fragile in my opinion..... Despite my issues with their ESCs, I've had the clear Novak fans last forever, even with chipped blades.

Amain doesn't carry my favorite.... The TORNADO (Yeah Racing). That thing can blow over a brick house.

how are you guys connecting fans to your motor and how are you powering it?

Reflex Racing fan mount, or just run a bracket of sorts off the upper deck.... Some guys even use ShoeGoo.

I run the fan wires straight to the + and - terminals on my SXX..... The higher voltage pumps more ci/m but burns up the fan sooner. The slightly shortened fan life is worth the cooling power in my opinion (blinky classes).

I like Viper ESC's They have adjustable BEC's which eliminates the need for a cap, You are right on about spektrum and high current servo's especially teamed with tekin esc's, I have actually even had problems with brown outs using the spektrum cap with that combo. I switched to viper and no more problems also the progauge portable tuner is great especially if you decide to run mod.
I really like the speed 6 for bodies so far, I would like to try the blitz though I hear great things.
I also like the low pro Savox And the futaba brushless bls451 servos.

I Have a good low traction setup for tight tracks,
Let me know if you want it.
I am guessing you bought one of Jims cars if so I bet it is clean and well maintained. I think he is running the radiation mobile only now.

After a lot of time enjoying the car this week i have stripped two servo arms, are you using any servo-saver?
I have some luck and both times only the arm suffered damage and the servo was in good shape but I don't want to destroy my servo so i have take the decision of using a servo-saver, Wich one is good? I was thinking of the xray t3 one, but it's quite expensive. i have a race this weekend and I am going to use the one that i have in my tamiya m05 but i need one for the s411


Cheers
