    Update - Been a while since I've updated this. The motor and stock ESC have been nothing short of perfect for us. Great speed. Runs cool as a cucumber. And is perfectly fast on 2s for him. I've run a...

    Personally, I think I would just grab another brushed motor - they are quite cheap. If that works, then you know the issue. If not, then you know what you can eliminate and have a back up motor.

    Since you have a brushed version (Titan 12T motor) I am betting that your motor is dirty in combination of some dirty bearings.

    Clean the motor (see video link below) and see if that helps. ...

    I've had that happen once and I was able to conclude that I simply didn't tighten it down enough. It's a tight space and you need a regular "L" shaped allen wrench to really tighten the heck out of...

    ESC - 136
    Batteries were 112 and 108

    The top speed is decent on 2s but it really...

    All good points but I'm not that worried about preserving the VXL-3s. I am fortunate in the fact that I have 2 LHS within 10 minutes of the house. And if they don't have something, the luxury of...

    I'm curious how it runs. Slower than the Velineon system on 2s? Same? Faster?

    I'm happy with the overall speed on my sons...
