    What did you do with your X-Maxx today?

    Once itís connected do you just plug the fan in to the receiver

    Well 12vdc will burn a receiver up. You could just use it for the fans if you choose. But normally youíd connect it directly to the battery and RX. I set mine for 7.25vdc. Best for the receiver and servo. Stock receiver will not support above 6.

    How could I power the fans on the Balance plug or how would I have to splice and where would I have to splice?

    Just solder + and - to the esc battery connection from the BEC. Then set the voltage and use red and black output to power the fans. This is just an option. Iíd use a different set of fans personally, get something a little less huge that runs on an Typical voltage. Then you could wire the bec in a typical fashion.

    You can go a couple of ways here. If you run 5vdc fans you can plug them into your receiver. If you run 12vdc fans you can put a male plug on them that will mate to your 3s battery balance plug. I myself, would consider getting two 50 X 50mm 5vdc fans and use your receiver. These fans can be had on Amazon for a couple of bucks each. That's where I got mine, and they should fit nicely with the cool frame you made.

    I can't say that I'm a big fan of T-Bone stuff or running an Xmaxx on asphalt, but your truck looks great and you've done a really nice job with it.

    Well my esc ain't bad it's the motor. I tossed my Traxxas motor on and it works fine. It's weird but something in the motor is messed up I can spin it by hand but the magnetic current is messing up.

    Maybe Iím just special, but I love my loud metal gears, trying to set the mesh of a belt drive was terrible, then worrying about heat, stretching, it was a cool venture for me, but ended up not being my best option

    Search 5M POWGE, they have pulleys and belt, Aliexpress... I was recommended this brand, under 25 usd included shipping

    You should figure out what you need, calculate or ask companies whatís best for your motor kv to order right pulleys and belt. 15mm wide,,,



    3M vs 5M belt:

    i revived my leopard 5892 1340kv. the extension wires that come with the max 5 was the culprit. i do plan on rebuilding my xmaxx anyway so new motor and esc regardless. but its nice to have a backup
