I think the only thing that can shut down on that system is the controller. With the amount of power you are pulling it is probably gettting hot enough to shut down. I have to run a fan with my Shadow.

That has to be the only good feature of my MGM comm pro controller. It has never gotten hot, not even in my e-maxx. Everything else about that controller isn't very good (except the price).

Guys, have any of you tried the feigao brushless motors? How's it hanging with the big boys like lehner, hacker, pletty?

Kufman: How many turns is the lehner basic 4200 equivalent to a brushed mod motor? Do you have problems keeping up with the 8T brush motors?

I have a feigao for my e-maxx, the 540-10L. It is pretty good, but they can't be taken apart for servicing.

I would say that the lehner basic 4200 is about like a 10 turn brushed and has trouble keeping up with an 8 turn. I have a video showing this. My car is red and white and my name it Matt(3rd). Kevin (1st) and Rob (2nd) are both running 8 or 9 turn mods. I was running my lehner and Chuck(4th) was running a novak that might have been undergreared. Here is a link to the video. Please don't repost this link I don't have too much bandwidth.

In the video I was running a 5.5:1 final ratio. I think the pinion spur was somthing like 32 and 70. even with this ratio I was still getting about 6 minutes of run time. When I gear more normally I get around 9-11 minutes of runtime on GP3300's. This summer I have a faster motor so hopefully I will be able to beat those guys.

I'm running 415 with SS5800 right now. Gear ratio 6.69. The laptim is about the same with well geared 23T and 9mins runtime (with old crappy battery, 2800mA capacity only..). I tried 6.89 but it came out with same laptime, but 10mins runtime. So is there more room for speed if I gear down to 6.3~6.5, or that's the limit of performance with old crappy battery?

I got cooling fan on it and so far it's cool, not even warm. I guess I will try gear ratio 6.50 this coming weekend.

Is there lots different using matched battery and non-matched battery with SS5800? I was running with brushed and matched battery make a huge different on non-matched, even it's lowest rank 1.165/390 matched battery.

Default Specktrum modules compatibility???

Has anyone tried Specktrums with brushless controller? Would it work with a Schulze U-force 75?

i will go for spectrum, but decided to wait a few more months, so they fix all the bugs, response issues etc.

Voltage is the most important thing if you want speed. Good matching helps your batteries last alot longer (a waek cell has to be overcharged every cycle while the stronger cells reach capacity) plus you will have better voltage late in the run.

A good matched pack makes a pretty big difference when compared to older non matched batteries. A motor system can only put out what it can draw from the battery. If the battery can't supply decent volts at a given amp draw, the motor can't put out good rpm.

it should work, but it's really not powerfull and will not give any normal power... you should take esc which can handle at least 40-50 amps of continous current.
