    Being brushed, be careful gearing up for more speed. Brushed motors can't take the abuse of brushless, and can't compare with speed or acceleration. Keep a close eye on the temperature of the motor,...

    I would like to recommend skipping the brushed version and go right to brushless. I started off my son brushed, and the money I spent on burnt motors and a fried esc cost more then going brushless...

    Stick with the 32p gears. Bigger teeth are stronger and are more forgiving to mesh error. 56t in 32p is about an 87t in 48p.

    Is the esc arming? If the esc isn't seeing a neutral signal long enough it won't arm, but you'll still have steering. Make sure throttle trim is set at 0.

    You can't run a brass pinion and a steel spur. You can run it with a plastic spur. For a steel spur you need a hardened steel pinion, otherwise the spur gear will chew up the pinion gear

    Yeah that's tall gears. I'm running 13/56 on 32p. Drop down several on your pinion, it's too tall for regular driving. Its causing the over heating

    You don't have to rebind. The transmitter is what sets the signal so both recievers will be linked to the same signal.

    Too much heat, getting it red hot, could change the hardness. But heating it up to a couple hundred degrees is fine.

    Either way, your 3s battery is a higher voltage then the nihm, so cogging would be more pronounced on the 3s with the same gearing. Try gearing...
