    Correct. The TSM function is part of the Receiver, not part of any ESC/motor.

    Traxxas TSM works on the Nitro vehicles that don't have an ESC or electric motor.

    I really like the new Erevo 2.0 also! The drive-train handles 6s without ripping itself apart vs the V1.

    I'm still enjoying the Nitro's also. You can't beat the sound they make.

    It's the tires that kill the speed performance. I have both a summit and merv and the summit is a handful at higher speeds.
    But they both are fun!

    Gear Noise

    Since the day I got my Erevo 2.0 it always had a gear whine. I thought it was normal, being an all new drive-line compared to the V1. I finally have had time and batteries to run this truck. My motor...

    If you have the XL-5HV it can take 2s or 3s. When you plug in fully charged batteries the ESC can tell the difference between 2s voltage and 3s voltage and uses the correct LVD.

    It calculated the top speed at 34mph, (2s LiPo, 3.8" tires, 23pinion, 50spur).
