I think any ESC nowadays can take a stock motor, but being a cheap ESC I doubt it'll have very good constant forwarding amp.

I'm running the Tamiya TEU101BK ESC with a Team Orion Core stock.

I bought a heatsink for ESCs and pasted it on the metal part of the ESC. It still runs pretty hot with it, though... hmm...

actually, I'm having a heat problem with my motor. I realize that the heatsink that I have covers the side vents of the can. Is that causing my massive overheating?

Rays_tt:
final drive ratio = (spur gear / pinion) reduction ratio
reduction ratio = specified in r/c manual (i.e. 2.353 for YOKOMO CGM)

I wouldn’t recommend on using the TEU-101bk when running a 27turn, 24-degree stock motor. I’d recommend you replace your esc with a novak xrs or futaba mc330cr because you might fry what you presently have. You’ll be experiencing dugrant153’s problem, esc tends to get pretty hot. Try the tamiya black (sports tuned) motor can first. You’ll be fine using that motor with your TEU-101bk esc.

Dugrant153:
How long do you run your TT01 on your tracks? Do you run it in excess of 5 mins?

Cheers!

i'm currently switching between black motor and silver can when i race. i want a stock motor to see weather its any good.

will my esc or gear ratio stuff up the stock motor? or will the esc be the only thing that stuffs up?

by the way what happens if your final drive ratio is too low or too high? at the moment on my TT i'm sitting on a 5.72 (55spur/25pinion)2.6trans ratio.

if i had a 58spur and 23pinion i'd fall into the 6.5-7 you were talking about.

its nothing special.

um.. i have
- alloy front and rear hubs
- aluminium drive shaft
- alloy heat sink
- full ball bearings
- metal motor mount
- carbon upper frame
- oil shocks

and im running a TEU101bk esc, take-off 27s, and 55spur with 25pinion.

the thing that bugs me is that i never crash but my wheel drive shafts (the thing you screw a nut onto to secure your wheel) keeps buckling (wobbles).

i got my oil shocks for free so im not complaining =]

all i want is the steering set, i dont know about the adjustables since my wheels wobble, because then they wont be as effective and just a waste.

i'll take RAYMAN's advice and pass on the adjustable upper arms, and maybe just get the tie-rod set.

by the way is toe-in the front more beneficial than toe-in the rear? or the other way around?

I believe it's better to have toe-in front and rear. Toe-out can make the car a bit quirky. NEVER go toe-out in the rear (so I've been told).

Toe is quite a sensitive adjustment. Anything over 2 degrees in the rear is too much. Not too sure about front, but I had like 5 degrees of toe or something. really messed up the handling. a small amount of toe is good.

I actually still have the adjustable arms and find them somewhat useful for tuning. It's the front A-arms that tends to get all whacked out, but the rear is fine.

Core should be okay with the Tamiya ESC. Just watch out for overheating. Mine has not overheated so far, but if you gear is pretty high you might cause some major heat problems.
