Default Xerun X1A questions

I bought a Xerun X1A 120A esc & 9100kv sensored brushless motor installed on a tt sparrowhawk vx,but it spins 360 degrees out of control at full throttleLooking for a new touring/drift car or buggy that can handle my esc & motor,what I have in mind is HPI sprint 2 or thunder tiger sparrow hawk xb,which is more ideal?thanks in advance

kv is way to high. you will have to gear down so much to make it drivable. better tires will also help.

I'm a speed freakPrecisely why I bought this 9100kv brushless combo,rather than switch out the motor,I would prefer to look for an ideal rc car that can handle it

did you trim it (the car) up? that and new tires and it should handle it. if tou want a new car the tamiya ta series or a spec r, or 3racing car mould handle the power fine. all can be had for cheap

try programming the esc (put a lower punch setting) and get grippier tires

I just realized that car has solid links oops on my part. how soft are the springs? what is the rate on them? did it spin out with the harder stock springs?

i think that a set of softer tires is the answer.

Its tt 4.2 coil medium tension springs,the stock are too hard & stiff & makes the car unstable,ordered high grip tires,but out of stock,would foam tires help?
