    Wouldn't you want the fuse before the converter? The fuse is currently protecting the esc, which handles more current then the converter.

    The rated amps of that esc's bec is 6, while the promodeler draws just over 6 at 7.4v. It would be best to get an external bec for it. Even at 6v, it draws 5.5, which is close to the esc's limit. It...

    No, the sensors have a hard time keeping up with the rotor once it starts spinning fast, so you actually lose performance being in sensored only mode. I've read that in a couple places, but there was...

    I'd still run a larger system. To me the vxl is maxed out on a stock slash or pede. The vxl esc isn't quite enough esc for 3s use. If you go caslte, skip the mamba x and go right for the mamba...

    Caslte only had sensored for 4 years? Doesn't seem right. Or is it their X line of escs that are 4 years old? Cause I've got sensored motors that are a good 12 years old (not caslte brands). I do...

    Yes there are separate profiles you can create and swap out. Don't think the program card allows for this (I don't use the card ever, so not sure), but the b link does.

    Its a sensorless motor, so it wouldn't work so well. It will cog while going slow. You'd want a sensored setup for sure, unless you're going to turn it into a basher. Alot of folks on here either run...

    I run hv 4s on a caslte mmx and on a toro ts150, both of which recognizes them as 4s. Once the caslte thought it was a 5s, I turned it on and off once and it was back at 4s. That was once out of...

    They both are much larger motors, so I don't think the 2650 will run hot compared to the smaller 2400kv stock motor. I'd choose the 2650 unless down the road you may try higher voltage then a 4s. The...

    I've seen somewhere you mentioned running 12v fans. Is that what the turbo fans are? Been looking for 12v fans that aren't cheap brittle computer fans.

    I agree with the marine grease. I even repack my bearings with it. For your plastic driveshafts, you'll want to use a dry lube, like graphite powder or something like that.

    Want to add to this by mentioning your tire foams. You don't want to get them wet and stay wet, as they will degrade. If they do get wet, take them out of the tires and let them dry. Its a good idea...

    Get rid of that jumper on the esc side, and plug in a positive of one battery to the negative of the other when you connect to the esc.

    Yes. Larger lower kv motor and a 4s capable esc (1/8th scale power) is what you want.

    I'd swap for the badlands. Not a big fan of trenchers myself. Seem good for a skate part, but not real off-road conditions. Do they make the badlands belted in the x maxx size? Although the added...

    Your reading is accurate, and you still can gain efficiency with the 3800kv, by gearing down quite a bit. 2s to 3s is a 50 percent increase in voltage, so on paper you'd need 50 percent drop in fdr....
