The 550 motor will fit the same as the 540 , just a little longer.

Thanks Kevin, was there a speed difference or excessive heat. The reason I asked about using the standard motor was because of the extra weight on the Slash....

What do you do with a rotor like this?

Magnet is now off the shaft.

1M,

There are a number of things you could choose to do with it, but first and foremost I would recommend sending it back in to us for replacement if you see fit.

This is a link to our Waranty Service Form which I recommend you fill out and use as guide:

Steve, if he decides not to send it back for replacement, could you please tell us some other things he could do with it. Thanks.

Well,

If he wants a project he can clean off the surface of the hub (part with the shaft on it) with some scotch brite and the inside of the magnet with a pipe cleaner or some other such device... then try to glue them together using a high-temperature green Loctite.

If not in the mood for a project the magnet would be great for affixing notes/paperwork to the refrigerator for the entire family to see!

Steve, I tried a new 13mm rotor in a 3.5. 3 runs and it hardly has any magnetic strength. Does this qualify for warranty?

Hi Steve,

I'm currently using GTB ESC with SP motor. If I enable the lipo cut-off function
can I still use it with normal Ni-MH 6-cell batts? or do I have to disabled the
lipo cut-off function when using Ni-MH?

Any ideas which setting is good for a Speed Passion 11.5T, 10.5T and 9.5T?
I find it kinda slow when comparing to my friend who is using LRP TC Spec
when we're using the same SP motor. Currently I'm using profile 1 with drag brake off.

Thank you for your time. Cheers.

Simply print out a waranty service form and send it in along with your rotor for evaluation.

I would recommend shutting off the lipo cut off function when using NiMH cells due to the variation in how the different battery types run. NiMH cells generally "drop off" faster than lipo cells so the cut off may get confused and kick in unwantedly

Hey Steve!

Now for some serious questions: Crocs or Birkenstocks?

I prefer Birks myself for their OG appeal, but a family of 5 with matching Crocs just looks SO...appealing. What's your preference?

Bman,

We stopped offering matched packs because it became too difficult for us to keep up with the battery changes... At the time GP's were the hot ticket...but it seemed like every month or two there was a hot new "revision" of the cell but it was difficult for us to stay ahead of the curve on it...

As far as the lipos go... I don't see that happening anytime soon... they are afraid of the liability involved with the batteries.
