    If it's not too late, I'd recommend trying the motor out running 29/54 first. It'll keep you from doing any cutting and you'll be able to set the mesh easier because you can slide the pinion off and...

    M4x16mm screws for the motor. Do you have a picture of the nylon pieces? Most likely they are for the esc mount. You'll notice that when you snug up the mount there is a noticeable gap where you...

    That'd be good on 6s. I'm running 32/54 and on 6s I'm around 50mph with decent temps. 32/54 starts getting hot on 8s though. If you're running 8s I'd stick with 29/54.

    Those cell voltages seem ok. The lipo's are most likely getting "puffed" from the esc/motor pulling more amps than the batteries can give. I know several other members have had issues with puffing...

    I thought the same thing until I saw the youtube video. You can make them tighter or looser in a matter of a few seconds.

    What are you having an issue with? Getting the ESC to calibrate? I don't 100% remember but you may have to reverse the throttle channel. I'm currently running my x-maxx/4pls with an xlx esc and...
