Should I get a new 7700 for this summer because I may have lost some rotor magnetism or will it be at it's best for this year ???



Thank you for making what I believe is the best BL system in the world and the smartest software as well.

Well I would run it and see how it works for you. Even though the 7700 is capable at running at that temp is still isn't the suggested thing to do but unlike some brands it won't thermal so your good. Might want to put a motor heatsink on to give it a larger cooling area and lower the temps some.

As long as it feels good on the track I wouldn't bother buying another motor other than just to have a spare if you ever need it.

Alright, sidewinder 5700, ive ran 4 packs thru it and now all it does is stutter and shake and goes no where and on occasion it will take off for a split second then stop again, never got above 170 in temp, i have good cells to run it, it started doing this halfway thru the last pack i ran, tried a fresh pack still the same. When i switch on the esc it lights up like it used to but it doesnt make the chimes anymore, since the chimes come from the motor im guessing its a motor issue? Anything i can do to check or try to get working?

anyhelp would be great as i was having a blast with it and cant wait to run it some more

replace the stock bullet connectors and direct solder. this should solve your issues.

statistically you wont keep up with the 3.5r. the kv on that motor is 10500 rpm per volt. regear your motor. and get them on the infeild where your car will outpull them outta the corners. time can be made up moreso on the infeild than on the straightaway

Thank You chewiefttc4........ My 7700 has more rip then the 3.5's so I can pull away going into the strait but our strait have been up to 160+ feet long so thats when there 10500kv gets me,
Thank you for the advice, I will use it.

Hey sometimes breaking happens while non of us like it. The thing is you made the shows.

All of our guys did really well at the event and I can't wait to see what they can do at the Onroads...it showed just how well they represented us when I got home to find emails from people with nothing but kind words to say about all our drivers...their demeanor, professionalism, and willingness to help anyone that needed it. Great job to all you guys!
