Adding a lot of weight started when we switched from 15 oz nimh packs to 9-10oz lipos. To see the effect first hand.... put a lipo in the ole XXXT and see how it does. It will feel like crap :nod:

I doubt it.

The BEC output is isolated from the ESC when you disconnect the red wire from the ESC plug.

If the BEC input leads short out, that is effectively shorting out both the BEC and the...

Absolutely. I run one w/out the fan in my B4. But note that the newest ones don't have the removable fan case, so you will have to "dremel" the fan off. The nice thing though, is that the new design...

CHEAT only works in "sensor only" mode. If you dial in 10-25* on a 7.5 you would definitely know it's working. :lol: Set it to sensor only mode and 25* @5000rpm and report back to us if you can see a...

The newer MMP also has a slightly lower profile. The case at the caps, and the heatsink... are maybe 1/8" shorter. And the fan/case is one piece now, so it's not removable without dremel surgery....

I don't have the 2.1, but I believe it's capable of running sensorless. My GT2.0 acts a bit different without a sensor wire, but it does work. In fact, a couple years ago I once ran without the wire...

Apparently the motor was smoked. It's too late now, no matter how you gear it. So you can get mad and throw a fit, but you are expecting a damaged motor to work correctly... not possible. It's like...

Goosebumps come with good soft foams. No need to change to something else. I ran a set all last summer outside on a black dirt track w/out issue.

If you overheated the motor due to incorrect gearing, it's now toast and it's too late. Once the magnets have been weakened, it will run hot no matter what.

Pick up a new rotor, and find out what...

You won't find it at a retail type store... have to find a commercial supplier. I can't help you find one, but for our track in Des Moines, we had to go about 2 hours north to another town to find it.

If the motor never over heated, and it's gotten slower? I would check the battery first. Brushless motors are normally either good or bad and no in between. And same with a speed control... don't...

The only way I see to make a 2-in-1 car is to take a car like the Losi 22 and run a belt to the front like was done in the 80's with the RC10 conversions. Keep the suspension geometry untouched while...
