    Using 3S on the Velineon 380, is pushing it to its limits.
    Lowering voltage and try to reach the same speed by changing the gearing, is a good solution to keep the rpms below the max.
    Sadly, when...

    You gave a good example of where unattended charging can be done. I should have added in cases where high charging currents are used.

    No idea if the newer VXL-3s can handle the amount of amps that the 1410 might want to consume. The older one is a no go, because the 1410 is a 4 pole motor, which will not work with it. Don't be...

    According to my own experience with NiCD batteries, to keep them alive the best, is a regular use (charge and discharge every few months). Unattended and automated are not the words that go well with...

    It seems the servo is causing the problem. Best approach to be 100% certain about it, is to swap it with a good working one and see if the problem disappears. I never had any problems with the stock...

    There is a lot of information about batteries, sadly not always correct. My personal experience learned me that Lipo Batteries stay alive much longer than NiCD ones. Charging batteries individually,...

    My first Traxxas car was a Bandit. Had a lot of fun with it, but if you are looking for durability and a car that is a bit more easy to drive, there are certainly better choices. Especially the 4x4...

    Funny thing is that my Merv has Integy parts on it which have appeared to be very durable: battery doors. To be honest I wouldn't buy other Integy stuff.

    In general higher voltage is used to be able to transfer more energy with the current staying the same.
    Bear in mind that you need an ESC that is able to supply enough voltage and that the receiver...

    Using two motors is quite a hassle compared to simply use a motor with more power. When you use the larger Velineon motor, you already have at least twice the amount of power with less motor volume...

    Nice. If you don't experience too much spinning rear wheels, you might try to do a run without rear wing. If you don't need it for downforce, it will only add drag and slow down the car.

    In the...

    What you see a lot in the R/C scene is that people give advice on base of things that they heard in stead of what they experienced. Due to this parrot behaviour the wrong advices are kept alive...

    In my experience higher Kv motors feel a little smoother than higher Kv motors. The axles of lower Kv ones turn a bit less easy. When you make enough rpm, that difference disappears.

    As long as it...

    I have never heard of fans slowing down due to the magnetic field of a motor. Could it be that the effect is caused by dropping of the voltage of your battery when you ask power from it to feed the...

    Sorry for the late response. I am not that often here anymore. The Hot Racing ones are not designed for the Merv, but that doesn't mean they won't fit. I have good experiences with most of the GPM...

    No. 4mm with M4 threads. The thicker part is 8mm, the smaller 4mm. You can find diameters of axles often quite easy by the size of the bearings on them. The inner bearings in the knuckles are 8 x 12...

    A Mamba Micro X might be not strong enough for the 1/16 Traxxas cars. It's not only a matter of being able to get to an amount of rpm by using a specific voltage. You also just need to be able to...
