Sold all my belts in a week! Time to have more made. They told me to send them a front and they would see what they could do. Perhaps I will be able to get some made for cheaper than the old losi ones. We shall see. I will keep everyone up to date!

Got my belts in the mail and installed this weekend.
Took my Rally Weapon out front this morning to take it for a spin; it's been over a year since I drove it..........

Unfortunately, the motor got heated up and on my 2nd battery pack, I smoked my motor.

Need to get a new motor and figure out what got it so hot in the first place, I know they get hot but melting the housing down on the 2nd pack has got me wondering if thie ESC is crapping out on me since it is quite a few years old.

Glad to hear you got it goin! Sucks about your esc. I've had bad ones before as well. They don't do such a great job and cook motors and battery packs. Pretty soon I'm gonna get mine back on the track. I was hitting it up almost every week, several times per week. Then, I got engaged and am buying a home. Now things are more complicated. Next week I plan on sending off the front/side belt to get it spec'd. I'll keep ya in the loop.

Josh

Not sure how you think the esc can destroy the motor. An ESC is just going to give you current (if it works) or not if it doesn't. If the motor can't handle it, it's the motor at fault not the esc.

I suspect your gearing might be wrong for the application or perhaps the transmission needs a rebuild.

Putting two battery packs through a car when bashing is not a brilliant idea either. Did you check temperatures after the first pack?

Dang.. they can NOT make front belts for me as the size is proprietary. I do still have rears and can get fronts, but they will be different material. Simply put they will be the losi ones so it's up to you guys on if you want me to put together sets for you or do it yourself. It don't matter to me. I still got belts though!
