    Hello everybody,

    I've been looking into different and more efficient ways of cooling motors recently, and I found out about the Peltier thermoelectric cooling plates. I think it would be pretty...

    Those are really great speeds! I read online that the absolute biggest pinion that people managed to fit was a 31t. Did you have to modify the motor mount /motor mount plate to fit such large...

    Yes, this is on road. It wasn't overheated, but I wasn't comfortable running it any longer. I took it home, and I re-adjusted the gear mesh, and the slipper. I ran it earlier this morning on 3s,...

    Thanks for the reply!

    One of the only reasons that I wanted to put a higher kv motor in is because these mini models have limited gearing. I believe the max is 31/45 and I'm only doing 40 mph...

    Fastest Motor on 3s?

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to build a 1/16th Traxxas that can go upwards of 90mph. I recently put in a castle 4600kv motor and ran it on a good 3s battery. However, the 4600kv got pretty hot today. ...

    Thank you for sending that link. I put the info in for my 1/16 Rally, and it gave a theoretical top speed of 37mph, which is exactly what I got a few days ago. Hopefully it's that accurate at...

    I'm not 100% certain, because I don't use the Robinson Racing Slipper Clutch, or a center diff, but I believe they should work. The center diff goes into the transmission, and replaces one of the...

    Best Gearing for Speed

    Hello everyone,

    Recently I started to make a Traxxas 1/16th build just for speed/ on road purposes. I have the Traxxas 1/16 Rally wheels and tires, and a Castle 1406 4600kv sv3 system running a...

    That should work well. If your Merv is new, then you might not need to shim the diffs. Usually after a year or so, the bulkheads warp a bit and cause the ring gear of the diff and the pinion gear...

    First of all, good luck with your new mini! They are really fun and great little cars. The stock vxl system is good for 2s and 2s parallel bashing. If you use 3s you are going to have to get a fan...

    It really depends on what you want. If you want to go 540 sized I'd recommend Castle or Hobbywing. Just remember to shim your diffs and check if your bulkheads are warped or not.

    Shims on each side of the diff?

    Today I shimmed my rear diff for the second time. I put two shims on the same shaft, as was said on a video I watched. I was wondering if that is the correct way to shim, or if I...

    Absolutely. The velineon motor doesn't need that high of a c rating to perform to it's best. If you were going to go "big block"
    with a Castle system, that battery would be perfect.

    How hot should my motors get?

    I noticed that when I run my vxl 380 brushless motor, it seems to get quite warm on 2s. I've always been able to hold my finger on it for 5 seconds, or longer, but I'm wondering...

    Yeah, but that summit comes with a 16 tooth pinion. Mine came with a 23 tooth pinion because it was originally brushed.
