Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you! Was in Vegas for the IIC!

You can remove the inline schottky diode module from the wires just so long as you replace it with a schottky diode directly on the motor. I highly recommend using our Racing Schottky Diode Module being as that it will offer you the best protection and performance.

The part # is: 5636

If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

If i want to cut it off do I just add one of the diodes that came with the esc in the plastic bag and solder it to the motor ?

or do you need that actual large circuit board etc connected to the motor + the little brown diodes in the baggy?

Any threads that explain this whole thing easily?

I have a JRXS and need my wires to be as tight and tidy as possible.

I am a newb to this shottkey diode stuff.

So to clarify.

I can cut out the entire peice wrapped in black shrink wrap.

if I replace it with one of the shottkey diodes included with the ESC in the little plastic bag and attach to the motor (like I am used to with previous motors/escs)

or with a Racing schottky diode module part# 5636

?

And if I keep the black shrinkwrapped peice I need NO diode on the motor?

Thanks for all of your help!!!

The racing Schottky Diode module (#5636) is MUCH better than the one included in the plastic accesorry bag with the ESC and I highly recommend using the 5636 over the axial style in the bag.

If you keep the in-line diode on the wires (the black shrink-wrapped bit) you should be ok without the diode on the motor, but placing an additional diode on the motor will never hurt anything and only adds more protection.

Damn that Racing diode is just as big as the inline one.

OK so I am going to cut out the one in the black shrink wrap and purchase the Racing Shottkey Diode and use that only.

Thanks for the help!!

Did Elvis have dry lip problems when he was in Vegas or is this something that just came up?

I'm going to bug you again.

Previously I was running a Novak Millenium charger and enjoyed it.

So I was looking at the Novak Millenium Pro for the new NIMH cells.

I am hearing complaints that the Pro just can't properly charge a NIMH pack?

any info on this?

The millenium pro can charge NiMH cells just fine.

The NiMH2 charge mode/algorithym is just very sensistive and can sometimes result in false peaks.

When this occurs we recommend simply using the NiCd mode with a 3 mV/cell cut off and you will be fine.

Ok Thanks!

Also, Is the 5amp power supply adequate to charge the batteries at 5amps?

In your opinion will I want a larger power supply to charge my larger 4000+MAH cellls at a higher amperage?

it's always better to have some headroom available to actually run the charger and whatever else you have connected to the power supply... I would recommend at least a 9/10 A supply.
