so what is a number to get in touch with someone from Hobbywing with tech support questions? Or, is there someone specific on here to contact with those questions?

Hi guys,

I just picked up a Hyper 10SC Pro 4wd SC truck. I have only ever run 2wd, except for my 1/8 scale buggy which came RTR w/ Hobbywing ESC. I have had 0 issues with this Hobbywing so I ordered an EZ-RUN SC8 w/ 4700KV motor.

I'm curious what gearing you all are running, or what gearing would be appropriate for my set up:

42T Spurr
2S Lipo
4700KV

Curiously, I can't find any gearing rollout charts like I have for my 2wd Losi. I have seen some threads talk about 14-16 tooth pinions.

Any help, or thread redirection if necessary would be helpful.

Thanks,

I searched the tread and didnt really find any feedback on the bandit line of outlaw motors? Any comparisons to the trinity blue wire, trinity SS or other popular 17.5 motors would be great. What about the motors makes them outlaw? Rotor? Stator?

outlaw means none roar approved not spec motors etc .Its all in the stator winding .

Will the V2.1 run a 4wd 1/10 buggy with a 6.5 without over heating. I know it says it will but looking for someone that's doing it.

Default XeRun 4-pole SC motor issue

Need some advice from the group. I have a 4000kv Xerun 4-pole mated to a 150 amp Xerun esc (with external BEC) in a Losi SCTE. The "C" wire has a tendency to unsolder itself from the motor during runs.

Gearing is tame: 15 pinion and 40 spur. Esc settings are low timing ("2" setting), no drag brake, 50% brake and punch at "6". There doesn't appear to be any extra friction in my setup and the motor generally temps at 140F when it comes off the track so I don't think I'm pushing it very hard.

Any thoughts why just the C wire might get so hot as to melt the solder and detach? Just a bad motor? I've run a HW 4700 in other SCTEs and have never had these problems. Any thoughts are appreciated.

I`ve seen lots of this happening. If you have the new motor with the swivel connectors most likely the swivel is loose, if not it`s a bad solder joint. I f you can pick up some silver solder use that because it has a higher melting point.

They are fast! I got one last year and ran it [17.5] and it was only .5 of a second off of the guys running mod. sedan.

I have that same truck. I'm running a 17 tooth pinion with the XTM 550 3800 kv. and it gets to about 135f after 12 to 14 mnts. Im running a 15t on my Tekno SC with the 4000v Hobby Wing Pro. 14 -16 is a good plce to start.

Thanks for the fast response, Paul. I'll lean towards loose swivel connector 'cause I'm using silver solder and I'm pretty good with my Hakko iron. Do you think I'd be better off removing half of the connector, or soldering the two halves of the connector together? Thanks again.

If you continue to have problems then I would solder directly to the motor tabs, just take the connectors off completely.

I run a 17.5 bandit motor in my buggy. It makes a HUGE amount of torque. (Something the v10 lacks in.. Low end torque) the top end of a bandit isn't as good IMO. You will have to gear up at least 1 tooth. I run on a smaller usually technical Astroturf track where you really need the extra low-mid power.

If you bought one and took it apart the differences are pretty noticeable. The stator winding is different and it uses a mod rotor. I have never had a motor that moves from one phase to the next this hard. The magnetic strength of this motor is amazing IMO I highly recommend you try one out if outlaw motors are legal and you run indoors. Outdoors on a bigger track I believe you will be better off with a standard V10 motor. Also with the bandit I learned to keep the end bell timing pretty low. You don't gain much rpm from raising it like you would a normal roar motor. I can look but I believe I'm right around the stock setting of like 18 or so degrees.

Hope this helps
Roger
