Is anyone using the v3.1 stock spec esc in a 4wd buggy with success? Jut wondering if this esc has the stones to be able to handle an application like this I am wanting to try it with a 7.5 motor.

Side note.... Why do they call this esc "Stock Spec" when it has all of the timing options of the regular v3.1.The only difference I can see is its rated for 100amp vs 120amp and that is probably just because it is a plastic case instead of the full heat sink aluminum case. I dont know this for a fact by Id bet it has the same guts as the v3.1, just less cooling.

Really it should just be called the v3.1 100amp esc or v3.1 "lite" esc. Stock Spec really has no more to do with this esc than it does on the regular v3.1.

^^ I agree; the specs are almost identical..I'm using the v3.1 stock spec ESC in a MOD Sct with a 7.5t or 8.5t motor. I have not had an issue with the stock spec esc and used the money I saved to buy a shorty pack

That is normal on the newest beta firmware. Boost is still there, just not all the sub-settings of boost. I'm not sure why they took it out, and I'm assuming this is on a v3.1 esc you are talking about.

Are you using the fan when running the SCT with 7.5 or 8.5t motor? I have been running the 120A 3.1 without the fan in a similar vehicle set-up, and was wondering if the stock spec one would need it or not? I always check temps anyhow, just curious that's all

I don't use a fan on with v3.1 stock spec esc and a 17.5t stock motor but I do use a fan with the stock spec and a MOD motor. A fan is recommended with MOD motors but prob doesn't need it. I also didn't wanna take a chance with the esc overheating while racing in the FL heat.

Yeah i upgraded my box as well as both my esc's i have the v3.1 sand the v3.1 stock so both have lost the sub-sections of boost... Im wondering why they did that as well...


If anyone knows why HW removed those settings please let us know?

Thanks

its just to make the software easier to use by not removing boost start rpm but making it automatic ramp up it also reduces some esc and motor temp.You dont have to use it just run 129 or 526 Andy moore likes running 526 its all up to you guys it was just an extra option to make it easier for the new comers.

I run a 120A V3.1 in my DEX410, transferred it from another car. I would run the stock spec no problem.

What is the usable turn limit for motors with the justock esc with the fan? I think it lists greater than 11.5 but was curious if anyone has run a 10.5 or even 8.5? Running a 2wd buggy for reference

Off road, 2WD the instructions say 11.5, 8.5 for on road on 2s. For 3s, 17.5 off road and 13.5 off road. I have heard about people running lower than that on 2s with no problems, and seen one guy running a 10.5 with no problems but I wouldn't suggest going below 11.5 off road if that is what the instructions say.

Both near 1800KV and sensored
Thanks
