    I am currently in the process of putting a Castle 5700kv setup into my merv. People definitely still do this, but most of the time it is done for cooler temperatures or speedruns. In my case, I am...

    Castle 1406 Bearing Kit

    Hello all,

    I recently bought a 5700kv motor for one of my mini models. While I was test driving it in a 10th scale, I noticed it ran a lot smoother than the normal 4600kv that I have in that car....

    I was thinking about going with the 1410 3800kv, but the issue is that the gearing options are very limited for the 1/16th cars. I think that 31/45 is the max you can go. On the speed calculator,...

    Hello all,

    I've made a couple of threads before mentioning on how I was planning on making a speed car out of a 1/16th platform, and this is going to hopefully be one of the last. I have...

    Hello all,

    I'm currently in the process of building a Mini E-Revo for speed run purposes. What motors would you recommend? Budget is around $150. I was thinking the Castle 5700kv paired with...

    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.
